HOWARDS' Way actor Nigel Davenport, who appeared in many classic British films and TV dramas, has died at 85.
The star was also well known for his role in Oscar-winning movie Chariots Of Fire and as the father of actor Jack Davenport.
But for many TV viewers in the late 1980s he will be best remembered for his performance as tycoon Sir Edward Frere in BBC1's Howards' Way. He also clocked up film roles including Michael Powell's cult movie Peeping Tom, and made a breakthrough with A Man For All Seasons in 1966.
