Aubrey Morris

Quince, Silent Dust

by Pete Stampede

Aubrey Morris' characters are generally other-worldly and knowing more than they let on (as with Quince in "Silent Dust"). His films include A Clockwork Orange, The Wicker Man (with Christopher Lee) and Woody Allen's Love and Death, but his TV credits are truly enviable. He was the Town Crier who pronounces a death sentence on Number Six in The Prisoner, "Dance of the Dead" (1967), having previously acted with Patrick McGoohan in Danger Man/Secret Agent, "The Paper Chase" (1966) which McGoohan also directed; again as actor-director, the loyal McGoohan used Morris as a fussy reverend in the most recent Columbo telefilm, "Ashes To Ashes" (1998). Add to that Morris' roles as a white-suited gambler in The Sweeny, "Stoppo Driver" (1975), the owner of a cafe for spies in Man In a Suitcase, "Variation On A Million Bucks" (1967), a dodgy butler in Michael Palin's Ripping Yarns, "The Curse of the Claw" (1977)—good grief! Is there a favourite series of mine this man hasn't been in?
