It's been announced that actor Richard Hatch who played Captain Apollo in the original Battlestar Galactica series has sadly passed away.
Our sincere condolences to his family.
More to follow.
Rest in Peace Richard.
It's sad Tony, another one of our TV heroes gone, although I remember enjoying Battlestar Galactica at the cinema when it first appeared.
I enjoyed the rebooted series more. His performance in that, as a political prisoner who was released and rose up in the ranks of government was really excellent.
Strangely Kev, I never got into the rebooted series, even though I know it was very popular with a lot of people. I watched the entire first season and I just didn't get what the hype was all about. I still prefer the original series for all it's shortfalls.
Just been on Radio 2 news , here in the UK, about Richard's passing.
