(1963), Seance on a Wet Afternoon (1964), Blind Corner (1964), The Pleasure Girls (1965), Doctor Zhivago (1965), Game for Three Losers (1966), I'll Never Forget What's 'Is Name (1967), Attack on the Iron Coast (1968), Curse of the Crimson Altar (1968), Arthur! Arthur! (1969), Nobody Ordered Love (1972), Fern the Red Deer (1977), Richard's Things (1980), Claudia (1985), Captured (2003) and An Adventure in Space and Time (2013), his last. His third wife was his Coronation Street co-star Sue Nicholls, who survives him. He died from Alzheimer's disease.
