It is with deep regret we have to report on the passing of Trevor Baxter.
Baxter who had a wide career, appearing in such shows as Z Cars, The New Avengers and George and Mildred.
To Doctor Who fans he is best known for playing Professor George Litefoot, pathologist and eventual comrade of impresario Henry Gordon Jago, from the Fourth Doctor story The Talons of Weng-Chiang.
He returned to this role in 2009 in the Big Finish audio drama The Mahogany Murderers, which would end up serving as the pilot for 2010’s Jago & Litefoot series box set. Thirteen box sets were produced over eight years, the most recent of which was released just a couple of months ago.
Baxter was 84.
