Stephen Churchett, a well-known English actor, died at the age of 74.
He was a British actor and director who appeared as Marcus Christie in EastEnders from 1990 to 1991, in 1993, from 1996 to 2004, and 2014 to 2015.
W Stephen Gilbert revealed the news of his death in a Facebook post in which he lauded his acting abilities and commended how good he was in his parts.
Gilbert stated, “
“He was a chameleon-anonymous presence who showed up in everything and always delivered.”
I gave him a little part in King of the Ghetto, and the director Roy Battersby (who is very picky about performers) adored him.
More encouragingly, his theatrical piece Tom and Clem (1997), which envisioned a set-to between Clement Attlee (Alec McCowen) and Tom Driberg, was a critical hit (Michael Gambon).
He wrote for shows like Kavanagh QC and Lewis and dramatized numerous Marples (the ITV generation). He was a nice man who had a full and exciting life.”
Stephen George Churchett was an English actor and writer who was born on 10 April 1947 in Bromley, Kent.
One of his most well-known roles was that of solicitor Marcus Christie in EastEnders, which he played on and off between 1990 and 2004.

Eyes, Lucan, Casualty, Moon and Son, Bugs, The House of Elliot, Peak Practice, Silent Witness, Dangerfield, Pie in the Sky, The Bill, Preston Front, Boon, Monroe, Dalziel and Pascoe and Porkpie.
In 1985, Churchett featured in the Doctor Who episode Attack of the Cybermen.
In the ‘Allo ‘Allo! episode “The Sausages in the Trousers,” he voiced Wing Commander Belfridge.
As Councillor Jack Druggett, he appears in many episodes of The Brittas Empire.
Churchett has written episodes of The Bill, Kavanagh QC, Inspector Morse, Dalziel and Pascoe, Monsignor Renard, and Hornblower, as well as the script for Lewis. He has also played the Coroner in four Agatha Christie’s Marple television adaptations (The Murder at the Vicarage, The Moving Finger, Murder Is Easy, Endless Night). In 1984, he played Major Reeve in Miss Marple’s The Body in the Library.
