    Loved Catweazle as a kid.
    "Geoffrey Bayldon, best known for his roles as the eccentric wizard Catweazle and as the Crowman in Worzel Gummidge, has died at the age of 93.
    Bayldon served in the Royal Air Force before graduating from the Old Vic Theatre School. He immediately started racking up credits, appearing alongside Christopher Lee in 1958's Dracula, Marc Bolan in the T-Rex concert film Born to Boogie, and playing Q in the unofficial James Bond film Casino Royale.
    But it was as Catweazle that Bayldon found fame, entertaining a generation of children as a kooky 11th century wizard who is transported to modern day and befriends a young boy."
