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.

After having looked after my mum for some 11 years she is now unfortunately in a nursing home. I'm afraid her dementia worsened as did her physical capabilities. UPDATE: My mum died from Covid-19 on the 6th May 2020. So, for the first time in 21 years I find myself no longer caring for anyone. Apart from my mum I was also a single parent to two children and also looked after my dad who had Alzheimers, (he died in 2005). So, I have decided to return to University to try and get another degree this time in English Literature. (My other degree I got some 30 years ago is one in Ecological Science). After a year at college I have passed all grades and now will start Edinburgh University in September 2019. I am now in second year having passed all the requirements in first year.
