Show Notes Chapter Markers

Barry Evans was a huge star in the 60s, 70s and 80s. 

One of the heart-throbs of his day, he was recognisable to millions for his roles in several big ITV sitcoms like Doctor in the House and later as the teacher Mr Brown in the London Weekend hit Mind Your Language.

But Barry kept himself to himself and was a very private figure. Little has ever really been said or written about him until now

Here Ashley chat's to Daniel Ward who has just published a new book about Barry's life and death

Across 75 minutes, they discuss his career, fame, personal life (it's emerged Barry was actually bisexual) and the circumstances surrounding what remains his suspicious death.

For anyone who remembers Barry Evans, it's an intriguing chat. 

Daniel Ward's book is available price £19.99 from Fantom Publishing. www.fantompublishing.co.uk
