    A wonderful actor, enjoyed the majority of his performances, most recently in From Hell (although I do think he was a little small to be Jack The Ripper!)

    Rest in Peace Sir Ian

    The first thing I think of whenever I see his name.


    Parkinson's seems to be a particularly cruel illness. Hope he's now found his peace. He'll certainly be remembered.
