I've heard rumours that they are working on a release of Dear John on DVD.

If it does get released I'ed seriously consider buying it. I haven't seen it since it was originally on TV in the 80's and it would be interesting to watch it now as an adult in light of Ralph Bates's marvelous Poldark performance.

I liked Ralph Bates as Warleggan. I saw Ralph the other week in The Agatha Chrisite hour, the Magnolia Blossom episode. Very well acted.

I never knew that he was  great, great nephew of the renowned French scientist Louis Pasteur.

Someone has mentioned on another thread that Ralph Bates played a very different character in a comedy series called Dear JOhn. Although i never watched this regularly i remember his character well and was surprised just how much of a contrast the part was from George Warleggen, a talented actor indeed and a great loss.

I watched the 1970 version of The Horror Of Frankenstein the other night with Ralph Bates in the main role.

I think they saw him in this before selecting him to play George, it was a similar period.

I only watched it because Ralph was in it.biggrin

So true.  I also thought Jill was much better in the second series.  Maybe he brought out more in Elizabeth's character.  Though the writing was closer to the novel, so that could have been a factor.

Ralph Bates was perfect as George Warleggan- a wonderful actor, he created a multi-faceted George- a villian, it's true- but I've always thought he also showed a vulnerable, unsure of himself side to the character, which made him very interesting to watch!

Poor guy!  He's dead already (cancer). 

He was in the 6 Wives of Henry VIII, playing Catherine Howard's lover.
