Hugh Lloyd - a friend remembered

Thursday 21st August 2008

It was with sadness that the Devious team learnt about the death of legend and cameo cast member Hugh Lloyd, who died on the 14th July 2008.

Hugh and his wife Shan had been long term friends of (Devious team member) Stephen, having been introduced via JNT in the early 90's. As well as being regular attendees to social functions at Cranford Towers, we were delighted when Hugh agreed to appear alongside Peter Tuddenham to play one of the Timelords in the dramatic finale to Devious. Stephen recalls the filming of that sequence....

"Hugh was amazing... Despite the fact that we made cue cards for both of them, Hugh made a point of learning his script, and was witty and sharp as a button during the recording. He and Peter were a fabulous double act.. and some of the improvised comedy Hugh came out with still makes me smile even though I must have seen it countless times.

We shall remember you for all time Hugh, and I still think of you every time I hear the word 'scenario'. "
