Ingrid Pitt - 1937-2010

Some sad news came in today. Just as we did a Hammer Horror special on the show, Ingrid Pitt, possibly the most famous Hammer girl has died in London at the age of 73. She will be remembered as one of the greatest on-screen vampires for her parts in The Vampire Lovers, Countess Dracula and The House That Dripped Blood. Matthew's challenge for the show, was is fact The Vampire Lovers so he has her performance fresh in mind, but I would hope that all those who haven't seen it go out and rent or buy a copy this week to pay tribute to a magnificent lady and the amazing contribution she gave to British horror films!

May she rest in peace.
