Actor Graham Crowden has died aged 87.
The Edinburgh-born actor was probably best known for his roles in the television shows Waiting For God and A Very Peculiar Practice.
His agent Sue Grantley said: "He was a wonderful, wonderful man and a brilliant actor and we will miss him terribly."
In a career spanning more than half a century, he appeared in films including the cult 1968 movie If.... and the James Bond adventure For Your Eyes Only.
He turned down the role of Doctor Who after the departure of Jon Pertwee but later appeared in an episode of the long-running science-fiction series as a villain opposite Tom Baker.
He leaves a wife and several children including a daughter, Sarah, who followed him into acting.
