Barrie Ingham was an English actor.


Born in Halifax, West Yorkshire, he was a Royal Artillery Officer before becoming a stage actor with various well-known companies including at the Library nd Royal National Theatres.

Though he often appeared in supporting roles in films, including Day of the Jackal, Ingham was frequently seen as a supporting player on television, beginning with an appearance in Doctor Who and including a guest role in Star Trek: The Next Generation. He also played the lead in A Challenge for Robin Hood and perhaps most famously voiced Basil of Baker Street in The Great Mouse Detective.

He passed away on January 23rd, 2015.


Ingham was frequently seen on both the Broadway and West End stages, making his musical debut in Pickwick opposite Harry Secombe, and later appearing in new musical On the Level.

He later played Herbie, the long suffering manager and husband to Rose in Gypsy in the original London production. In 1981 he played the unscrupulous Uriah Heep in Copperfield. As well as playing the lead in The Great Mouse Detective, he also had a brief singing part as mouse henchman Bartholomew.

Ingham was also in the final cast of Aspects of Love during its original run, and played Sir Danvers Carew in Jekyll & Hyde during the show's entire Broadway run, as well as the subsequent video. In 2003 he returned to the West End stage, playing the role of Elisha J. Whitney in Anything Goes.
