Never to be Forgotten:
Roger Lloyd-Pack 1944-2014

Roger Lloyd-Pack, a much beloved British actor who played Bartemius Crouch Sr. in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, has died from pancreatic cancer at the age of 69. He also played John Lumic, a desperate industrialist who creates the Cybermen, on two episodes of Doctor Who in 2006. In a bit of casting coincidence, his son Barty Crouch Jr. is played by David Tennant, who played The Doctor in the 2006 season.

Other work in genre films and TV shows includes Interview with the Vampire, U.F.O., Nineteen Eighty Four, The Magus and the British TV show The Avengers.

British obits mention his best known TV shows, Only Fools and Horses and The Vicar of Dibley. He also did a lot of work on the stage. Michael Billington in The Guardian calls Lloyd-Pack "the Perfect Pinter performer".

I send my best wishes to all the friends and family of Roger Lloyd-Pack, from a fan. He is never to be forgotten.

  1. It's funny, I know RLP as a spoken word artist that I've been playing on the show for a while now. His best piece is called "Fishing for Sheep", Very dry and humorous. RIP Mr. Pack, you will be missed!

    1. Hi, Michael, thanks for stopping by. I hadn't heard his spoken word material, I'll take a look for it online.
