RIP, Ingrid Pitt

Ingrid Pitt, the star of several Hammer films, and one of the greatest British horror films of all time, The Wicker Man, has died. Most people know that she starred in some of the more saucy Hammer vampire films (often in limited amounts of clothing) and was very beautiful. What people often don't realise is that she was a concentration camp survivor and also a very talented actress, with her own theatrical touring company. She also wrote.

  2. Rhian, she even wrote a Doctor Who story, although I believe it was only ever made in audio form. One cool woman!
