Fantastic, Matthew! Thanks a million. You're a life saver as I generally don't do obits but really wanted to have something about Jimmy Sangster. I met him once or twice briefly during Don's Hammer events and he was kind enough to sign his books for me. I wish I had an incredibly insightful question to have asked him (I never do) but remember him as a really nice and courteous gent with an amused glint in his eyes over the adoration he received.
