R.I.P. Nicol Williamson

Actor Nicol Williamson died. He was 75.

Williamson played everyone from Macbeth to Sherlock Holmes, but to me he will always be Merlin in Excalibur, still my favorite adaptation of Malory's Le Morte d'Arthur. And Williamson was my favorite Merlin. Rest in peace, magician. You were a dream to some, a nightmare to others!
