    Default Peter Wyngarde

    He seemed to have appeared in every '60s or '70s show once, except maybe Rising Damp or The Liver Birds (just lookalikes)... now he's gone I wondered if anyone has any fond memories?

    I remember him in The Prisoner, The Champions, The Avengers, and a later Doctor Who. The strangest place he ever turned up though might be as a villainous character in Marvel comics' X-Men: Jason Wyngarde! He corrupts the Phoenix superheroine who become Dark Phoenix, eats an inhabited planet's sun, is put on trial in outer space for it and commits suicide.

    There was a poll of ladies at the height of Wyngarde's popularity in the late 60s/early 70s that voted him as the man they would like to have been their first lover.

    In my first year of secondary school--1973-74--we were taken into the dining room to watch a schools programme as the TV was kept there and prior to it starting an episode of Jason King was being shown. I don't know why that seemingly trivial incident has stuck in my memory for 40+ years.

    I remember Wyngarde as Klytus in Flash Gordon, which stuck in my mind as a 9 year old on account of the bizarre death the character suffered: flung on to a floor of spikes (by Timothy Dalton, no less) which prompted his eyes and tongue to crawl out of his face for some reason.

    In fact, Flash Gordon was notable for the grotesque deaths some of the characters had to endure: General 'Vot do you mean, Flash Gorten apprrrroachink?' Kala disintegrating into a puddle of steaming squid ink and Peter Duncan oozing green blood after being stung to death by some sort of scorpion/bladder thing in a tree stump.

    I seem to mostly remember Brian Blessed with wings and leather gear from that Flash Gordon film. Not sure what that says about me.

    He was so popular, he was allowed to release records!

    Quite a few celebrities released singles in the 1960-70s, I found a website a while back of someone who collected them.

    I can't remember the brand but I think Jason King smoked French Cocktail cigarettes, with coloured paper.
