William Windom, who I've always thought gave the single best performance on Star Trek TOS, in the episode The Doomsday Machine, has died. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=9djuORzi9rU



Emmy winner William Windom dies at 88 Aug. 19, 2012, 7:21 PM EST

William Windom, a 1970 Emmy Award winner for his show "My World and Welcome to It," died on Thursday at home in Woodacre, Calif. He was 88.

The cause of death was congestive heart failure, his wife Patricia told the New York Times.

"My World and Welcome to It" was based on James Thurber's humorous essays and cartoons, and Windom later toured with a one-man show drawn from the program.

He may have been at least as well known for his numerous guest appearances on several TV shows, including "Star Trek," "The Twilight Zone" and "Night Gallery." But it was a recurring role that began in 1998 on "Murder, She Wrote" that may have brought him the most fame.

He played a doctor in the imaginary town of Cabot Cove, Me., who was best friends with the show's star, played by Angela Landsbury.

Mr. Windom also had a few memorable supporting roles in films, as in Hour of the Gun (1967), The Mephisto Waltz (1971) and Escape From the Planet of the Apes (as the President). //// R.I.P.
