    Like many of his film appearances,LOVE VICIOUS,esp Sir Ian.Still don't know why he can't be honest about whether he actually ever had secret crush on Sir Ian when they were both studs at Cambridge,that's why I'll always admire Sir Ian more for his honesty!Sir Derek supposedly said he had a crush on Sir Ian,even told him to his face,then retracted that in the press.Surely his mate,Richard Clifford wasn't feeling that threatened afer 35 years together?I'd have more respect for Derek if he'd just let it be,rather than taking it back,like Maxwell Sheppard telling Fran Fine he loved her,then took it back.This is not the years where being gay meant risking jail,or the horrors Alan Turing and others were subjected to.Be honest,be safe in your choices.Being gay is no stigma,be proud of who you are.NO BULLYING!Always felt Sir Derek didn't give a hoot what the next person thought anyway.

    LOL funny in his performance as the "househusband" of Sir Ian McKellen's Freddie.Outstanding as Brother Cadfael,endearing in I,Claudius,which I only recently watched on dvds.Heartwarming as Arthur in movie Little Dorrit,which I couldn't sit thru when aired on tv due to its length Parts I & II).He was so gorgeous in his younger days,and now is even more handsome with his white hair,and beard,thanks to a real babyface.In Ironclad,a tale of Magna Carta England,he was an obstinant landowner who'd rather bow down to the evil King John than stand for what's right with the Knights Templar.Great as the Father Immortal in Underworld:Evolution.So many memorable screen performances,and I've only started watching what we can see in USA of his stage career.Fantastic Alan Turing performance in BREAKING THE CODE as the father of modern computers and deciphering the Enigma Code,which probably saved millions of lives in WWII,only to be brought down because of his homosexuality.Benedict Cumberbatch to star in new adaptation of Enigma Code/computer work in Christmas release of new movie on same topic.LOVE THIS MAN!

    Watched in PBS dramas,comedies (Vicious) over the years,and this handsome man never fails me!Glad he's since recovered from a terrifying fall while on holidays (tore quad tendons in both legs-can't even imagine how excruciating that must've been).Great voice,convincing in film roles,would love to see him on stage,but have yet to see England!Long May You Run,Sir Derek!

    Derek and Ian McKellen are 2 of my fav actors,and love them both in VICIOUS,as a long-time gay couple.Just finished his autobiography,and enjoyed it.A very humble man from working class origins,he's never ceased to amaze me with his acting.Love him in Last Tango In Halifax,he and Anne Reid are wonderful to watch,even with their dysfunctional families.And what a turn he did singing in the Season 2 finale at Celia-Alan wedding.And his dancing with Celia,Anne Reid said he was a jive dancer,he and a pal won a dance contest when he was in early days in school.Jealous of his partner,Richard!
