Sad News: The passing of Bernard Horsfall

Two days ago, The Doctor Who universe lost another dear  family member. Mr. Bernard Horsfall died at the aged of 82. He was in four Doctor Who televised  stories. First he played Gulliver in one of my all time favorite 2nd Doctor stories: The Mind Robber. Then he played one of the Time lords that made the 2nd Doctor regenerate in the last episode of  The War Games.  Then he played the character Taron in the 3rd Doctor's story Planet of the Daleks.  Last but not least he played Chancellor Goth in the 4th Doctor's story The Deadly Assassin . He also was in the Big Finish Audio story Davros  He was also in the Granada's version of The Hound of the Baskervilles, a Sherlock Holmes story. He played Mr. Frankland. He also was in one of my favorite movies, Braveheart. He played Balliol   My heart goes out to his family and close friends during this difficult time.
