As a huge fan of WED, I was sorry to learn of the death of Brook Williams. I only learned of his death whilst browsing the imDb website today, prior to the showing of WED on BBC1 tonight (16/8/05). As he was still relatively young, I looked for more information on his death. My initial searches only showed that his passing was not widely reported. However, I did eventually find this obituary from the Guardian:

Brook Williams, who has died of cancer aged 67, was one of the most charming, witty and promising exponents of light comedy in postwar Britain. He was the second son of actor-playwright Emlyn Williams and younger brother of Alan Williams, the novelist.
A man of enthusiasms (snooker, pool and golf) and sociability, Brook seemed to match his father in his acting of comedy. Yet he could never, it seems, settle down to a steady career. He was on the London stage in the 1960s - like his father, he worked regularly with the producer Hugh "Binkie" Beaumont - and in more than 100 films, sometimes through his friendship with Richard Burton, although all his parts were more or less minor

Please note his performance in Zulu, arguably his most famous role, in his selected filmography.

Sorry, I confused him with Neil McCarthy... :(
