Sad news today that iconic TV actor Clive Dunn, OBE passed away, from complications following surgery in Portugal.
Dunn was born in Covent Garden, into a family of actors and it was clear from a young age that he would be continuing the family tradition. He started acting professionally in the 1930s, until the outbreak of WWII, where he enlisted with the 4th Queen’s Own Hussars. He was captured in Greece and spent more than four years an an Austrian POW camp.

Another winter is passing and on a dark and stormy night, we built a fire, poured a healthy measure of a decent fiery spirit and settled down to watch Kenneth Branagh in the first two series of Wallander.
While I found the series itself interesting and entertaining, by the time I had watched just a couple of episodes, I was much more intrigued by the theme tune; a haunting folk arrangement which even reduced to only a few bars for the opening credits, made every hair on the back of my neck stand up straight.
