Frontios Actor Peter Gilmore Dies
Although he was best known for his portrayal of the rugged, steadfast Captain James Onedin in Cyril Abraham’s The Onedin Line, Gilmore was introduced to a whole new generation of viewers when he took on the role of Brazen, the security chief of the human colony Frontios in the 1984 serial of the same name – where in keeping with his heroic persona, he sacrificed himself in order for the Doctor escape.
Gilmore died in London on 3 February 2013, survived by his wife and a son, Jason, from his first marriage. You can read a full obituary at Cult Britannia.
