Peter Jones

Peter Jones (12 june 1920 - 10 april 2000) was a British actor who played in 1968 the role of Sir Arthur Doyle in the episode The Curious Case of the Countless Clues of the TV series The Avengers (S07E19) with Patrick Macnee (John Steed) and Linda Thorson (Tara King).

Singers masters commit murder leaving irrefutable evidence accusing members of the aristocracy. Steed, too curious became annoying. The victim must be Tara King... This episode refers to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Sherlock Holmes with the character of Sir Arthur Doyle bearing the coat and cap detective and smokes a pipe.
