Peter Sallis has passed away at the age of 96. May he rest in peace. While he was loved for being the voice of Wallace in Wallace & Gromit, I’ve barely heard of that in passing. However, after checking IMDB, I do remember him in the role of Samuel Paxton in Taste The Blood of Dracula (1970). I haven’t seen the film since I was probably 12. So at some point, I really need to rewatch that one. I recently watched The Curse of the Werewolf (1961) (he played a character named Don Enrique) for the first time, courtesy of Svengoolie airing it.

It appears Sallis was also in an episode of Mystery And Imagination in 1970, for an adaptation of Sweeney Todd, as Brogden/Mundel/Hopkins; from what I can determine, this might be one of the few episodes to have survived (along with Dracula 1968), although I haven’t been fortunate enough to locate it.

For Doctor Who fans, he played Penley in the Second Doctor era story The Ice Warriors in 1967. He was also in Frankenstein: The True Story (1973) as a priest; Tom Baker and Agnes Moorehead appear in it, too, so I need to locate and watch it. Even if is 3 hours long.
calliopes_pen: (rosiemoon sneaky geek)
Don’t worry, there won’t be any spoilers for yesterday’s episode of Doctor Who. Well, today’s for me, since I had a severe migraine (and accompanying nausea related extras*) at the time it was streaming yesterday, and onwards through when it would have aired on BBC America.

I kept thinking that David Suchet looked very familiar, and that it wasn’t just due to the role as Hercule Poirot (which I’ve never seen, aside from the occasional promo on either KET or PBS). It turns out he played Van Helsing in Dracula (2006).

While it isn't a particularly good adaptation, it had one of the better castings I've seen for Lucy Westenra in Sophia Myles. I watched it for the first time a couple months ago.

*I would have posted a 'this community is open' for [community profile] hidden_passages yesterday, if not for the migraine. I'll get on that now. I'm torn between three layouts for it, but I'm currently going with Amaranth in Librarian's Dream (the other two are Touch in Dusty Foot, and Pigeon Blue in Librarian's Dream).
calliopes_pen: (taibhrigh puzzle to solve Doctor)
Bill Paxton has passed away at the age of 61, due to complications from heart surgery. May he rest in peace. I liked him as John Garrett on Agents of SHIELD, when I still sporadically watched the series. Until I checked his IMDB page, I never realized he played Chet in Weird Science (1985); I always preferred the 90’s series over the movie, so never really saw it more than a handful of times. He was also Severen in Near Dark (1987) and Simon in True Lies (1994).

Others will remember him from Twister and Titanic.

The Terminator (1984) gets rerun a lot on Comet TV and This TV; he’s a punk leader there. Someday I’ll get around to watching Aliens (1986).

Neil Fingleton has passed away at the age of 36, following a heart attack. May he rest in peace. On Doctor Who he played the Fisher King in the episodes Under The Lake and Before The Flood. Apparently, he was also known for being the tallest man in the UK.
calliopes_pen: (sallymn Brigadier raining)
Sir John Hurt has passed away, at the age of 77, following a long battle with pancreatic cancer. May he rest in peace; he died five days after his birthday. I mostly recognized him from his role as The War Doctor on Doctor Who, but apparently he was also the voice of the dragon on Merlin (which I watched for a couple seasons, and then jumped ship).

He is perhaps most famous for his role as Gilbert Kane in Alien (1979). His death scene is one that I unfortunately watched first at the age of 5, when it was suddenly shown in the middle of Terror In The Aisles (suspense films, stuff from the 40’s in black and white, sudden unexpected--well, to me--chestburster scene followed as the show talked about bloodier horror; I think that is how that went, and then gory then on out). I didn’t know that was him when I watched Spaceballs many years later.

He was The Horned King in The Black Cauldron (1985), and Aragorn in Lord of the Rings (the Ralph Bakshi version from 1978).

And when it comes to horror films, I remember him from Frankenstein Unbound (1990), and The Skeleton Key (2005). I haven’t seen The Ghoul (1975), so I need to watch that at some point, along with Perfume: The Story of a Murderer (it also stars the late Alan Rickman) and Whistle And I’ll Come To You (2010).

(I don't have an icon of The War Doctor, so here's one of the Brigadier.)
calliopes_pen: (sallymn Brigadier raining)
Roger Lloyd-Pack has passed away, at the age of 69, after a battle with pancreatic cancer. May he rest in peace. I’ve only seen him in the Doctor Who two-parter The Age of Steel and Rise of the Cybermen, where he played John Lumic.

I appear to be finished with my fanfic, and it's now off to the first person to beta read it. 14,647 words. Given a couple things that go on in the course of it all, I'll probably be rating it R.

Also, is anyone else having trouble with LJ? I can log in finally, but I haven't been able to get any further than the main page for the last two or three days. It's only LJ, and no other site--it's that way in IE, Chrome, and Firefox, so it's likely something to do with the cluster I'm on.

When I try to cross-post, looks like Dreamwidth fails to connect until the third try. So definitely an issue on LJ's part.

Oh, and without spoiling anyone who may not have seen it--loved the 50th anniversary special of Doctor Who when it aired on Saturday.

(Posting yesterday’s and today’s now, while I have a few minutes between helping with gathering everything we'll need to take to Nashville and locating a hotel that’s actually got a vacancy outside of just Thursday—-and doesn’t have bed bugs. The Bed Bug Registry is incredibly useful with that last bit.

Thank you to everyone that's sent their well wishes.)

Malachi Throne has passed away at the age of 84. May he rest in peace. Star Trek fans will remember him as Commodore Mendez in the TOS episode The Menagerie, as well as the leader of the Talosians in The Cage, and was Senator Pardek in the Star Trek: TNG two-parter Unification. He played False Face in the Adam West Batman series—I recently managed to catch an episode with him, courtesy of ME-TV. He was the narrator for the original 1977 trailer for Star Wars. A quick check of IMDB, tells me he was also the narrator of the cartoon Visionaries: Knights of the Magic Light.
