I met Derek many many years ago through Nigel when I joined his Theatre of Debate company on the Advisory Board. Derek welcomed me immediately and thereafter shared his immense experience of the theatrical and tv world – usually over a glass – or two, or three…. of wine. RIP my dear.

I am very sad at hearing this sad news. I first met Derek at Zenith North, when I was cast in my first regular role on Animal Ark. He introduced me to my favourite restaurant, Le Mercury. In return I spent many afternoons working on trying to get that car of his to work! LoL
A lot of fond memories
He was a one of kind
Rest in Peace Derek. My brother from another mother
