Tony Haygarth, actor in the Morse episode ‘Daughters of Cain’, has died. (1945 – 2017)

Tony Hogarth, who played Ted Brooks in the Inspector Morse episode, Daughters of Cain, has died at the age of 72. He was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2014.

Tony was a familiar face and a character actor on British TV and it would be easier to mention what popular programmes he didn’t appear in than what he did.

In the Inspector Morse episode he played the bully and wife abuser Ted Brooks with such elan that you hated the character as much as those around him.

As a small tribute here is a few scenes from his role in Daughters of Cain.

Up until a few years ago I was my mum's full time carer. She died last year of Covid. I am now about to start my third year year at Edinburgh University studying for a second degree this one being English Literature. My other degree is in Ecological Science. At the moment I am attempting to write a novel.
