Sue Holderness just Tweeted recently, she's abroad filming - still working! It's amazing, I was watching something with her in from 1972 recently.

A lot better than I remembered it, the clairvoyance part is pretty small. A typical internal department episode. Only major down point is the rather elaborate plot for a bit of financial fraud. Good build up, some fun moments.
Amazing how different Finch looks with a shave, haircut and nice suit.

Oh dear! Not like The Avengers Forever to muck up actor names.

Is he famous for being hirsute and unkempt? :)

Beard in The Tragedy of Macbeth and moustache & sideburns in Frenzy but clean shaven in Death on the Nile. Comme ci comme ca.

And the famously bearded Jesus in The Martian Chronicles.

I see he turned down a regular role as Doyle in The Professionals. Would have been amazing to see him and Lewis Collins together.
