RIP Peter Sallis, 1921-2017

The actor Peter Sallis, who our son first saw in the Doctor Who serial “The Ice Warriors,” has passed away at the age of 96. It’s likely our son will run into him in several other roles in his future, because Sallis was in everything. He played doomed businessmen in Hammer films and crafty villains in ITC action shows, and he played Norman Clegg in an amazing 295 episodes of the BBC comedy Last of the Summer Wine across its 37 year run. But he found his greatest international success as a voice actor in the Wallace & Gromit series, which we’ll certainly show our son sometime in the future. Our condolences to Mr. Sallis’s family and friends.
