Doctor Who fans will kinda remember Richard Todd for his part as Sanders in the 1982 Peter Davison story, Kinda. Though for others, this real life war hero will be remembered for roles in such films as The Dam Busters (1955) and the Yangtse Incident (1957).
Todd, who had been fighting cancer, has died at the age of 90. He had been one of the first British soldiers to parachute into France on D-Day.
He has a long list of credits with film and television roles as early as 1937 to as recent as 2007.
An inside look at how David Tennant shaped the role of the Doctor. (Video is most likely locked down to the US only we fear).
This year's EA British Academy Children's Awards honours Bernard Cribbins.
