Dame Beryl Bainbridge has died aged 75. Beryl made a couple of appearances in Doomwatch as an actress/extra in both the Season 1 finale "Survival Code" as a WREN and in "Tomorrow, the Rat" as one of the drinkers in the background behind Dr. Mary Bryant during her marvellous "before you offer to buy me a drink..." speach. Beryl was a successful prize winning author. More information can be found courtesy of the BBC News page here
