Actor and voice of Oxfordshire-based radio stations JACKfm and Union JACK radio, Paul Darrow, has died after a short illness.
Darrow was best known for playing Avon in the BBC science fiction series Blake's 7, as well as appearances on Doctor Who, The Saint and Little Britain.
Ian Walker, CEO of JACK, said Darrow's "rich tones and flippant delivery style always brought a smile to everyone who knew him".
Darrow was born in Surrey on 2 May 1941 and studied at Rada, where he shared a flat with fellow actors Ian McShane and John Hurt.
