RIP Warren Clarke

Oh dear, this journal is turning into an obituary column but I was really sorry to hear just now that Warren Clarke had died. He first impressed me with quite a small part in The Jewel in the Crown. I never watched Dalziel and Pascoe but have fond memories of Sleepers (with Nigel Havers) and Nice Work, based on David Lodge’s novel. Rather creepy that he will still be seen posthumously in a new Poldark.

We enjoyed watching him in Dalziel and Pascoe a lot. What a shame.
Eheu.
Sad news. To me he will always be Vic Wilcox from Nice Work, driving his Jaguar and listening to Jennifer Rush.
I *loved* that series (and the book). It even made the Jennifer Rush song a favourite because it reminds me of enjoying the programme so much.
I was shocked and saddened when I heard it on the news yesterday. No age really. I loved him in Dalziel and Pascoe.
My generation :-(
