Richard Briers has passed away at the age of 79, following a long struggle with a lung condition. May he rest in peace. For Doctor Who fans, he appeared in the Seventh Doctor story Paradise Towers, playing the Chief Caretaker. He also played the role of Henry Parker, in the Torchwood episode A Day In The Death. I also remember that he played Smee in the 2003 version (which I think I saw on Encore once) of Peter Pan, and had a role in Mary Shelley's Frankenstein (1994).

Steven Franken has passed away, at the age of 80, as a result of cancer. May he rest in peace. If he’s who I’m thinking of, he played a warlock who was henpecked by his mother, and had a crush on Samantha on Bewitched. Where he also played five other characters. He was also in an episode of the Adam West version of Batman as a valet, and was the voice of someone in Batman: The Animated Series. His best remembered role would be as the rich and snobby Chatsworth Osborne Jr. on The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis, and for MST3K fans he ended up in Stranded In Space.
