James Bree passes away

Post by TOMSPY77 on Wed Feb 18, 2009 6:39 pm

I was oddly enough watching Lust in Space starring this actor when I saw this on my Yahoo home page:
The character actor James Bree - who had three notable roles in Doctor Who - has died at the age of 85 after a long illness, reports The Stage.

Bree's first appearance in Doctor Who was as The Security Chief in the 1969 ten-parter The War Games - soon to be released on DVD. He appeared again in the show in 1980, playing Decider Nefred in the four-part story Full Circle, which was recently released on DVD in the UK as part of The E-Space Trilogy.

His final appearance in the show was as the Keeper of the Matrix in The Trial of a Time Lord: The Ultimate Foe in 1986 (also available on DVD).

Bree's many other TV credits included The Jewel In The Crown, I, Claudius, Glittering Prizes, The Duchess of Duke Street, Z Cars, Rumpole of the Bailey, The Professionals, and Budgie. His film appearances included On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.

Bree died on December 1, 2008 according to the report, but his death has only just been announced.


May he rest in peace...
