In this BBC interview from 2009, David Warner talks about his life and work including his well known role as Morgan in the film version of ‘A Suitable Case For Treatment’ (1966). He discusses the challenges of playing the part – a role which Ian Hendry also took on in the BBC production of 1962.

During this interview [from 8mins 5sec], David refers to this earlier performance and in a few brief but telling words, states that ‘Ian Hendry was Morgan‘.

We appreciate David’s humility, but regardless of comparisons it gives us a glimpse of just how powerful Ian’s performance must have been. Sadly, that BBC productions is missing, presumed wiped – but we live in hope that one day it will be discovered.
