Whatever happened to #61
Barry Evans from Doctor in the House and Mind Your Language. I used to think he was quite handsome and had a nice voice but he came to a sticky end.
Once he lost his boyish looks, he had trouble finding acting work and took to the bottle. In fact, he died of alcoholic poisoning. That is the official cause of death, but somehow a rent boi was mixed up in it. He made a will a couple of days before his death, his credit cards were stolen, his telephone line cut and someone else had been driving his car the day he died. His blood alcohol reading was around .2% Although the young man was charged with murder, the prosecution offered no evidence and the case was dropped.
