The first biography of Britain’s greatest television actor and most underrated stars, a performer of exceptional talent brought down by desperate times and his own demons. Send in the Clowns tells the sometimes heart-breaking story of the original star of TV’s The Avengers and, later, The Lotus Eaters and films such as The Hill and Get Carter.

Comments / Reviews
“He had more talent in one little finger than most actors do in their whole bodies.”
“He had an ability to hit a line dead centre so there was no possibility of disbelief in the audience and so that you couldn’t see the joins …he was a ruined genius.”
“I have read hundreds of music, TV and film-related biographies in my time and this splendid one stands up there as one of the best.”
