Patsy: Oh, my God, what does that make me, then?
Patsy: He was the only man I ever loved.
Jackie: We were meant to be married.
Patsy: You took him!
Jackie: How could I take him? He was a grown man!
Patsy: You told him I was dead!
Jackie: I thought you were dead. How many people survive a heroin overdose on that scale? (QUIETLY) I must've got the purity wrong.
I just wanted to write about the passing of Bernard Kay who died on December 29th at age 86. He was a tremendous actor and have seen him in many things. Obviously I first noticed him in his outings on Doctor Who where he played Tyler in The Daleks’ Invasion of Earth, Saladin in The Crusades, Inspector Crossland in The Faceless Ones, and Cadlwell in Colony in Space. I have seen him in other things such as The Avengers, Z Cars, Out of the Unknown, Survivors, Space: 1999, Foyle’s War and much more. He brought a lot of warmth and dimension to these characters that always seemed effortless. I can truly say I have enjoyed everything I have seen him in. A wonderful person who will be missed.
