Donald Sinden has died, aged 90, on 11th September. He was born in Plymouth in 1923 and was awarded a CBE in 1979, being knighted in 1997. In the 1940s he joined the Shakespeare Memorial Theatre company and in the 1960s he joined the Royal Shakespeare Company, later starring in King Lear and Othello. He enjoyed a prolific film career, notably in the 1950s in The Cruel Sea, Doctor in the House, and Doctor at Large. He appeared in numerous radio productions and guested on TV shows. In the 1970s he starred in the series Two's Company and from 1981 for ten years he starred in the sitcom Never The Twain. His distinctive voice was heard on many TV commercials and in recent years he often appeared in Judge John Deed. Although his appearance in The Prisoner was brief, he was impressive as the doubting former colleague or boss of Patrick McGoohan’s unnamed character, in the episode Many Happy Returns.
