RIP Jerome Willis

A belated obituary for that fine character actor Jerome Willis, who sadly passed away on the 11th January aged 85.

A veteran of theatre and with over 100 screen credits to his name too, it is perhaps easier to name what Jerome wasn't in rather than what he was, but he was a particular favourite of mine for his role as the officious SIS mandarin Matthew Peele in the excellent spy drama The Sandbaggers and his guest role as the corporate polluter villain in the Jon Pertwee Doctor Who serial The Green Death aka 'the one with the maggots' as anyone of a certain age will tell you (pictured above)

His film credits also included Andrew Mollo's Diggers film Winstanley, Lifeforce, Orlando and Perfume: The Story of a Murderer
