RIP Keith Barron and Liz Smith

Versatile British actor Keith Barron died Nov. 15 after a short illness. He was 83.
Barron enjoyed a “long and varied career… of which he was immensely proud”, a statement said, referencing his many roles across television which included appearances in “Coronation Street,” “Casualty,” “DCI Banks,” “Doctors,” “Holby City” and “Benidorm.”
But MSTies will remember him as Bradley in the movie in episode 1107- THE LAND THAT TIME FORGOT.”

The Guardian has the story.

And while we’re noting departures, gossip columnist Liz Smith died Nov. 12. She was 94.

MSTies may remember that she was mentioned in a host segment in episode 505- THE MAGIC VOYAGE OF SINBAD.”

Her New York Times obit is here.

Thanks to Timmy for his copious headses ups.

    Liz Smith –

    When Liz was a student at The University of Texas at Austin she was immersed in the University fraternity/sorority community and destined to get her “MRS” degree ushering her into the life of a well to do junior leaguer. Instead she went to New York City and became something that is unique to this day – a gossip columnist with morals. Liked and admired even by those she put under her magnifying glass Liz found society doors from the Brahmans of Boston to the Inside the Belt Washington Insiders open to her. All of this was and is well outside my world, but one has to admire talent and success in any field. RIP
