Dorinda Stevens

The actress Dorinda Stevens died on October 25, at the age of 80.

Born in Southampton on August 16, 1932, she appeared in many well-known television series, including Fabian of the Yard, No Hiding Place, The Saint and The Avengers. She was also seen in two Carry On films, Carry On Constable (1960) and Carry On Jack (1963).

In 1964, she appeared in a spy film, Night Train to Paris, of which one reviewer wrote: “The most attractive thing about the whole picture is a nifty blonde called Dorinda Stevens. The woman can act, too, which is more than can be said for most of the others.”

Stevens’ funeral will be held at 11.15am on November 6 at Bournemouth Crematorium.
