I’m afraid I am the bearer of bad news. The wonderful John Shrapnel, with the mellifluous voice, has died. He passed away on the 14th February 2020, aged 78.
John was a British actor who appeared in many classic British TV and radio shows.
John appeared in the excellent Morse episode, Death is Now my Neighbour as ageing Don Juan, Dr. Julian Storrs.
John also played Morse in three BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisations with Robert Glenister as Lewis; Last Seen Wearing, The Silent World of Nicholas Quinn and The Wench is Dead.
Here is slice of John in the Morse episode, Death is Now my Neighbour.
Loved John in this episode and as Morse in the Radio dramas. Thank you John for making the Morse Universe a better place. We won’t forget you.
R.I.P John Sharpnel.
