Patrick you're Needed.
I'll feature the cover for the first Act of Story I wrote set in the Cathy Gale era then feature a few vids featuring Pat.
One of Patricks early roles -although he'd be uncredited in many films before this one Including the original Pygmalion and The Live and Death of Colonel Blimp- He's so thin here you'd barely recognise him as "Phillips" Macnee also starred in this Powell and Pressberger classic alongside cousn David Niven Pat saw action on the channel on E Boats- as stated in first video -he's very lucky to of had that spell of bronchitis -The film also featured another recently departed legend Christopher Lee. Pat did a fair bit of work on TV (Mainly in Canada ) before The Avengers - but here is talking about the show on it's 40th Anniversary I do find it disgusting that both ITV (who would not exist without this show) and BBC didn't even mention Patrick in the news this afternoon -instead they talked about Harry Potter -it's totally shoddy of them. Really does deserve a mention at the very least.
Great little interview Edited version of This is Your Life from the 80's can't embed so have to link instead https://youtu.be/PQCYK-of1lk
Starred in this classic Battlestar two parter-which was perfect TV before Bullseye on Sunday afternoons. I'll round off my tribute to Pat with hs take on Steed... Ahh that's how he got the character:) and a Celt too ... related to Robn Hood from what he claims -I totally believe him. .. R.I.P Patrick -you truly are a one off.
