Revolution of the Swinging '60s is underway, and hormonally rampant [yet

was the debut for actor Barry Evans. He followed with the role of Dr Michael
Upton on the British TV series Doctor In The House (1966-69).
Then, to shake the wholesome 'Young Doctor' image, he began a series of
Sex Comedies (including UNDER

OF A TAXI DRIVER, also with Judy Geeson). During this period he
also gave a jarring performance for Pete Walker's DIE
SCREAMING MARYANN. Interestingly, Barry returned to British television
in 1979 for a decade of Mind Your Language before getting

Evans unemployed, working as a London taxi driver, until he was found
dead from alcohol poisoning in February 1997 at age 53.
