Gary Downie

Outpost Gallifrey is reporting that Gary Downie died this morning. Downie worked on a number of British shows, including Doctor Who, and I met him at a convention in Chicago. In fact, I have a little story.

I can't remember the exact circumstances, but I was stuck in a room and hadn't had any food for awhile. Gary had an apple, but he wasn't going to eat it. When I mentioned that I was hungry, he offered me the apple, which I gratefully took. Later, when he signed my yearbook, he drew a little apple with a bite out of it.
