I still think they should have used Prowse's voice for Vader.

That higher-pitched-than-you-expect tone, slightly camp West Country accent,  all filtered through the metallic clang effect.

Would have been far scarier.

He used to frequent the gym just down the road from Borough High Street station.

The Curse of HMHB claims another victim :'(. He was namechecked in “Sponsoring The Moshpits”.

Close behind David Prowse, AKA Darth Vader, is Jeremy Bulloch, AKA Boba Fett. He died yesterday, aged 75. He has starred in Dr. Who episodes, three James Bond films as well as two Star Wars films, amongst other roles. RIP.
