Aged 83. https://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-...-gentle-touch-star-jill-gascoine-dies-aged-83 The Gentle Touch was appointment TV for me in the early Eighties*, and a rewatch the best part of a decade ago proved it has stood the test of time incredibly well. Jill's part in that series' success is not to be underestimated. She had numerous scenes that were terrifyingly good. * I also watched every episode of C.A.T.S. Eyes, but that information doesn't leave this thread.
