      He was a great actor but terribly treated due to his sexuality as were a lot of people. He deserved better.

        From Talking Pictures:
        "Talking Pictures TV is sad to hear that #PeterWyngarde has died. We will be showing The Innocents, on Fri-26-Jan at 9pm in tribute to him"

            R.I.P.

            A great actor and personal favourite of mine, always watchable. Standouts off the top of my head: character of Jason King (which he created to be fair), The Innocents, The Avengers episode "A Touch of Brimstone" and Doctor Who serial "Planet of Fire".

                Although he had a very intense look about him there was always that faint twinkle in the back of his eyes, he will be missed. Funny but I had written to the Fantastic film festival asking could I get a photo signed, no answer, although it was not Tony Edwards as he always helped me it was one of the other organisers. Rest easy my friend knowing that you brought a lot of pleasure to others through your work and talent.

                          An actor of amazing presence and voice and staple of our childhoods with his ITC work.
                          Loved him as Baron Gruner in the D.Wilmer Sherlock Holmes and as Langdale Pike, opposite his friend Jeremy Brett,
                          Peter always had a an air of mystery about him, perpetuated by differing tales of his own upbringing.
                          With all the smoke and mirrors surrounding his life and times, a biography would be a monumental task, but tongue firmly in cheek, I have a couple of title suggestions.

                            I think one word sums the man up & that is "Panache"! He oozed it!
