Sadly, I have to report the death of actor Julian Curry who appeared as Alan Cartwright in the Morse episode Twilight of the Gods.
Julian died on the 27th June 2020 at the age of 82.
It is always sad when a star of the Morse Universe passes. It makes one want to hold the Morse Universe tighter to one’s heart and hope that this loss does not lessen the love for the Morse series. Ironically, I am working on my review of the Twilight of the Gods episode.
I am sure you, like me, will want to send our thoughts and love to his family and friends. Julian had been a British character actor for many years appearing in many TV shows. He is probably best know for appearing in the brilliant Rumpole of the Bailey.
Thank you Julian for being part of the Morse Universe we love you for it. Here is Julian in the Morse episode.

At last but not least please think about buying my book on the Lewis TV series.
I have been a fan of Julian Curry for many years. He played the rather hapless opera- and wine-loving Richard Wagner devotee, Claude Erskine-Brown in the ITV series Rumpole of the Bailey (1978–1992). His character was married to Phyllida Trant Erskine-Brown (Patricia Hodge), who played Lady Hanbury in “Ghost in the Machine” (2006).
So very sorry about Julian Curry. We remember him most from from the Rumpole series. He and Patricia Hodge as Phyllida made an amusing couple. I remember him from way back in 1976 when he was in “Glittering Prizes” which starred Tom Conti. We recently saw him in the Morse episode “Twilight of the Gods. He’s popped up now and again in things like “Midsomer Murders” and it was always a delight to see him. We’ll miss him.
Very sorry to hear about Julian Curry. He was an excellent actor and such a complicated villain in the Lewis episode.
Hi Belle. Julian never appeared in any Lewis episode.
Only seen this now, very sad to see that Julian has passed on. I liked him very much in Rumpole of the Bailey, another fantastic series the likes of which we will never see again, and he played a very nasty villian in the excellent Jeremy Brett version of Sherlock Holmes “The disappearance of Lady Francis Carfax.
He was the cousin of the actress Angela Lansbury and he was also an expert on wines and produced a guide to wines for Naxos.
He really was very good in Rumpole and helped to make the series so very special.
