Saturday 13 June 1970 saw Patrick Wymark’s last appearance on British TV in Lily, a 30 Minute Theatre play about the prosecution of journalist W.T Stead for exposing the trade in young girls in Victorian Britain. The play starred Avis Bunnage (above) as a former prostitute and Dandy Nichols as procuress Nancy Broughton. Iain Cuthbertson played Stead, and Wymark played Richard Webster, the Attorney General, who led what many saw as a political prosecution against Stead.
