RIP Peter Wyngarde, 1927-2018

Another of the greats has passed away. Peter Wyngarde was the star of Department S and Jason King, leader of the Hellfire Club in The Avengers, the very best Number Two in The Prisoner, and the inspiration for the hilarious Jason Bentley in The Comic Strip Presents. He recorded probably the weirdest celebrity pop music album of them all, and popularized having a scotch when it’s too early for coffee. Our condolences to his friends and family.
