Terence Rigby

TV’s Big Al (The Beiderbecke Affair, Connection), soldier from Tinker Tailor Solider Spy and Watson to Tom Baker’s Holmes, has died, though I found out about it because of a forgetable appearance in Tomorrow Never Dies.

Rigby was one of an outstanding ensemble in what is easily the best screen adaptation of Le Carre (it comes close to rivaling the book for me). It’s a bit disappointing to find a big screen version is planned, they won’t get as good a Roy Bland.
