Have your say

I never heard it announced on the television, but the actor Simon Ward died last week.

In 1972 he portrayed Churchill in Young Winston. Part of it was filmed on the Longmoor Railway, which had a terminus at Liss.

In All Creatures Great and Small he played the part of James Herriot, along with one of his best friends, Anthony Hopkins, who played Siegfried Farnan.
