The urbane Patrick Macnee, who played the murderous thief Norman Alexander in this episode, has died aged 93.

According to the copy of the script I have, this was the name of the character played by Patrick McNee in The Man Who Murdered Himself.  Sadly, McNee has passed away at the age of 93.  Here's a link to his obituary on the BBC News website:

I loved watching The Avengers with him and Diana Rigg and it was initially odd to see him in another role on ASJ.

So sorry to read about him passing. He was wonderful as Steed in The Avengers.

I didn't see anything elsewhere on the board so I posted an announcement in the ASJ Characters thread in the Discussion Spot forum about his passing, along with a link to an obituary, a couple days ago. Maybe that and this thread can be merged, BJ?
