Warren Clarke (1947-2014)

 

  1. Gareth Thomas, Blake's 7, TV, 1978-1981.        Still going strong 40 years on with In With The Flynns, the Clockwork Orange bullyboy was up for Roj Blake, head of what Terry Nation (also the creator of Doctor Who’s Daleks) pitched asThe Dirty Dozen In Space… His rivals included Tom Adams. Alun Armstrong, Maurice Colbourne, Brian Croucher (he played Travis for six episodes), Paul Darrow (who became the icy Avon),  Peter Egan, Martin Jarvis, Christian Roberts and Donald Sumpter.  Welshman Thomas quit after 28 of the 52 chapters when the BBC wouldn’t let him direct.  He never did direct for TV - never watched himself on the box, either.
  2. Charles Hallahan, Pale Rider, 1984.        Passed on Clint Eastwood’s invitationinvitation to join  the villain LaHood’s … hoods!   But he’d done the rowdy gang bit  in A Clockwork Orange- 13 years ago thank you very much! Competing at the 1985 Cannes festival, the Western was the start of Clint’s artistic respectability.  Some called it a Shanere-make (do’h!) and it was re-made by new auteur Dolph Lundgren  (of all people)  as Missionary Man in 2007.
  3. Maurice Roëves, Doctor Who #135: The Caves of Androzani , TV, 1984.   Clarke was the outsider among regualar Whovians Patrick Allen, Alun Armstrong, Nicholas Ball, Steven Berkoff, Kenneth Cope, Michel Elphick in the Stotz loop.
