James Bond's original nemesis DR. NO has died - the actor Joseph Wiseman passed away on Monday (19Oct09).
Wiseman played the metal-clawed, crazed scientist in the first ever 007 feature film in 1962, which starred Sean Connery and Ursula Andress.
He died aged 91 at his home in New York after a prolonged battle with ill health - almost eight months after his wife, modern dancer/choreographer Pearl Lang, died suddenly from a heart attack following hip surgery.
As well as his role as Dr. No, Wiseman featured in a string of films including Detective Story and The Unforgiven.
He also had guest roles in Law & Order, The Streets of San Francisco and The Twilight Zone.
