He will always be remembered for being one of the greatest actors in The UK especially during the 70's.
I thank him for all the joyful hours watching the Onedin Line.
My thoughts are with his family.
A Swedish OL fan
Thank you Marianne for sharing this sad news.
Skickat från min iPhone10th February 2013 at 1:36 pm #1446bastet1958MemberDear shipmates,
Peter Gilmore has passed away.
The Captain has set sail for his very last journey.
I was immensely sad when I heard this news.
Peter has died in a hospice. I do hope he did not have to suffer too much in the end.
My condolences to Anne and his son Jason, his nearest and dearest.
"He was a gentle man and a gentleman"; how well Jessica put it.
Peter, you have brought so much happiness into our lives:
by your fine acting, your smile, your humour.
You will always be loved and remembered.

As often as I watch that channel I have never seen one ad for it, but tonight (Feb 10) at 8pm US Eastern Time SyFy is airing 'Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome'. At first, in spite of fans' demand for it, SyFy said they were not going ahead with this pilot even though it had already been filmed. The producers then put it up on Youtube and it's gotten millions of hits. So during SyFy's bit 20th Anniversary Special a few months ago they made a big deal of mentioning "upcoming works", and including 'Blood and Chrome' amongst them (though there was no mention of when it would air).
So, in spite of the demand, I think SyFy (or NBC) is going to air the pilot without advertising it so they could say "Oh, look, almost no one watched it. Horrible ratings. No series. Sorry, fans." (Fox was almost as bad with the 'Doctor Who' TV Movie in 1996.)
So let the word get out: Tonight, 8pm US EST on SyFy, 'Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome'. Hopefully enough people will watch it that it gets a chance at a series.

Peter made the part of James Onedin into something special. Coupled to the other fine actors and actresses in the series really turned out something that I doubt will be matched again in a TV series.
Condolences to his wife Anne and his family and friends.
