Sadly the news has come through that actor Jeremy Bulloch has passed away.
He was someone I met several times and have great memories of. We had a great conversation in Dublin about his time on Doctor Who, working with William Hartnell and how he nearly became companion to the third Doctor, Jon Pertwee. He was massively generous with his time to fans of all ages. My prized possession is a signed replica of McQuarrie art signed by Jeremy featuring Boba Fett and the other bounty hunters. I met him in Dublin, Belfast and London and never came away with unpleasant memories. You’ll see a lot of tributes but none will have the video of Jeremy in Belfast playing drums with the cantina aliens. RIP sir. It was a pleasure.
