    Sad news. I remember him in Where the Heart Is, Take Me Home (with the yummy Maggie O'Neill) and most recently as Alan Banks' father in DCI Banks.

      I also have fond memories of him in Take Me Home (which I have on *ahem* DVD-R), as well as the Captain in the Dr Who serial Enlightment, the two Nigel Barton plays from the 60s and so much else. R.I.P.

        Actually Keith Barron, not Baron. Enjoyed him and Nigel Havers in The Good Guys.

          Sad news indeed. I've always liked Keith Barron very much. Had no idea he was in his 80s!

            RIP Keith Barron. First saw him with Rita Tushingham in the Comedy Playhouse pilot episode for their 1974 series, No Strings.

              I always liked Keith Barron too. There's a great outtake of Keith getting cramp when in bed for a supposedly romantic scene and he had no option but to jump up out of the bed in agony.

                  I have a series of "It's Dark Outside" on DVD from the 60's & Keith Barron plays a dark character very well indeed.

                  He was a fine actor who was very good in everything he did, R.I.P.

                    I liked The Good Guys too, thanks for reminding me of this. Jenny Agutter appeared in one episode. Sadly no DVD release.

                        A fine actor, loved him in many TV roles including the previously mentioned Good Guy's, The Professionals, Randall & Hopkirk (Deceased).
                        In films as the leery photographer in the Firechasers and as the doomed Dr Haynes in Nothing but the Night.

                          Sad to hear about this I watched the fifth series of Tales of the Unexpected - he was in an episode called A Harmless Vanity and the day after I saw it I found out he had died

                            A very well known TV face over the last 50 years and a fine actor who's brush has covered a very large canvas.

                              I remember him as Rose's Australian beau in Upstairs, Downstairs.
