The Fourth Horseman - Guest Cast



Peter Bowles

Well known actor Peter Bowles was deliberately cast as Abby's husband
David, in order that his death in this first episode would surprise the
viewer. Peter is most fondly remembered for the roles of Richard De
Vere in
To The Manor Born
(1979-81) [shown below with Penelope Keith
as Audrey],
The Irish RM (1983-5) and Guy Buchanan in Perfect
Scoundrels
(1993). Most recently he has appeared in the feature films
Love and War (2000) and One of his Hollywood Ten (2000).


Peter Copley


Peter Copley who played Bronson is perhaps best known for his portrayal of
Dr. Warlock in the classic Doctor Who story
Pyramids of Mars
(1975) [pictured

is still acting today. Some of his roles in the 90s included Harold Richards in
Lovejoy
(1992), Abbot Herebert in Cadfael (1993) and Robinson in Wives and
Daughters
(1999). [Portrait below Bromhead Photography]

Say Never Again, but is best known for his portrayal of another Doctor, Dr.
