The Saturday interview: Janet Suzman

20 August 2011 1:07 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Janet Suzman was one of the giants of the British stage in the 60s and 70s. She might have made it in Hollywood too – if she hadn't looked so good in a tiara

'See Pooh bear up there?" says Janet Suzman, pointing to a little doll on the bookshelf. "That was a present from Judi Dench when Josh was born. Isn't it sweet?" We're sitting in what was once her son's nursery at Suzman's Hampstead home. Now little Josh is Dr Joshua Nunn, 30-year-old father to a seven-month-old daughter. He's a postdoctoral research associate at the cool-sounding Ultrafast Group at Oxford's physics department and is currently researching the field of quantum memories. Perhaps Dr Nunn will tell us some day if quantum memories are like the human ones that suffuse this room – memories of 30-year-old kisses and of bedtime stories read by one of the RSC's most seductive voices, all locked, »

Jeremy Paul obituary

25 May 2011 4:06 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Prolific playwright and the hidden hand behind a string of classic TV series

Jeremy Paul, who has died of pancreatic cancer aged 71, was a prominent and industrious television writer associated with many of the leading series of the past 40 years, from Upstairs, Downstairs and The Duchess of Duke Street in the 1970s, to Roald Dahl's Tales of the Unexpected in the 80s and Lovejoy in the 90s. Relatively unknown writers such as Paul – who also wrote three BBC Plays for Today, including The Flipside of Dominick Hide (1980), starring Peter Firth as a time-traveller, and many of Granada Television's Sherlock Holmes series, starring Jeremy Brett and Edward Hardwicke – are the unsung heroes in the sustained supply of wit, literacy and humanity in our popular culture.

A 1988 West End stage spinoff of the Granada series, The Secret of Sherlock Holmes, was revived last year at the Duchess theatre, starring Peter Egan »

Alfred Burke obituary

18 February 2011 4:03 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Actor best known as the private detective Frank Marker in the television series Public Eye

For 10 years, the actor Alfred Burke, who has died aged 92, starred as the downbeat private detective Frank Marker in the popular television series Public Eye (1965-75). The character was intended as a British rival to Raymond Chandler's American gumshoe Philip Marlowe. Tough, unattached and self-sufficient, Marker could take a beating in the service of his often wealthy clients without quitting. "Marker wasn't exciting, he wasn't rich," Burke said. "He could be defined in negatives."

An ABC TV press release introduced the character as a "thin, shabby, middle-aged man with a slightly grim sense of humour and an aura of cynical incorruptibility. His office is a dingy south London attic within sound of Clapham Junction. He can't afford a secretary, much less an assistant, and when he needs a car, he hires a runabout from the local garage. »
