Simon MacCorkindale 1952-2010

This is a lovely article about Simon from someone who recorded some of his voice over work

He had a rich, warm voice, full of authority, but had the rare ability to make it flick from friendly to menacing within the same sentence. His range was truly excellent.

Goodbye, Simon MacCorkindale

This is an interesting article on Simon’s small role in the film Wing Commander.  This has info about cut lines and a good discussion between a few fans of the film

The man only had a bit part with three lines in the whole film, and it still manages to be one of the most memorable performances.

A small tribute to Simon from someone who worked with him

Yet Simon, with his genial demeanour and infectious boyish enthusiasm, was utterly behind it. A thoroughly likeable man, possessed of great generosity of spirit, he was a source of constant of encouragement at the time

Series: New Tricks
Episode: S7Ep5 – Good Morning Lemmings
First Aired: 8 October 2010
Character: Sir David Bryant

Description: Brenda and the team reopen the investigation into the murder of graffiti artist Danny Tyler who died from a head trauma caused by a blunt instrument. Their interest in the case has arisen from the appearance of recent graffiti proclaiming ‘I Killed Flak”, Flak being Tyler’s street name. Tyler had acquired a level of fame and his work is now quite valuable. They have CCTV footage of the latest graffiti artist but the person can’t really be identified. There was clearly friction among the taggers in Tyler’s clique, not the least of which due to his rising fame and they were also involved in a string of ATM robberies. When the ‘I Killed Flak’ graffiti is shown to be a publicity stunt, they look at an art patron as a possible suspect. Meanwhile, Brian has taken to using Twitter with the user-name topcop999 but his fascination with it results in him becoming sloppy in his daily work.
