simon_deeTHE Summer of Death strikes once more as Simon Dee – it’s Siiiiiiiiimin Dee – dies. he was 74. Who knew Dee, the first superstar of British TV broadcasting, could get that old?

He was born Cyril Nicholas Henty-Dodd in Lancashire. He changed his name, combining his son’s forename with the initial letter of his surname to become Simon Dee.

Dee… became a bus driver and lived in Winchester, Hants after his television career ended.

Now Dee’s time is up and his clipboard is interned in the TV vaults.

Pictures here.
