Administrator - Posted on 28 July 2009

Harry Towb as Osgood (left) with Terry Scully (right)British actor, Harry Towb has died at 83 on Friday after briefly battling cancer. Born in Larne, County Antrim, grew up in Belfast, and moved to England in the 1950's, has passed away peacefully in his home in London.

Although his career spanned the stage, television, and film with roles in everything from Little Shop of Horrors (stage), The Avengers (TV), and The 39 Steps (film), for Doctor Who viewers, they may recognize him as Osgood in the 1969 story, 'Seeds of Death' with Patrick Troughton or as McDermott in the 1971 story, 'Terror of the Autons' with Jon Pertwee.

He is survived by his wife, Diana Hoddinott (also an actress), his children Emily, Daniel and Joshua, and three granddaughters.
