Is this the Face of Evil?

Today we wish the legendary Patrick Macnee - Battlestar Galactica's Count Iblis (and the voice of the Imperious Leader and the Opening Narrator!) - a very fine 90th birthday!

"There are those who believe that life here began out there, far across the universe with tribes of humans who may have been the forefathers of the Egyptians or the Toltecs or the Mayans. Some believe there may yet be brothers of man who even now fight to survive, somewhere beyond the heavens...." 


  1. He may have been the face of evil for (part of) the 70s, but in the 60s (and part of the 70s) he was the perfect gentleman: John Steed!

  2. Count Iblis still scares the sh*t out of me. (Mr. Macnee was great in The Howling, too.)

  3. I always remember him from the 1951 version of Scrooge. He payed a young Jacob Marley.
    He was so great as Iblis. I think I read somewhere that he was intended to be the devil.
