RIP William Christopher
A sweeter, nicer, more gentle man you'd never find. He was an absolute pleasure to work with. And he took a thankless role and turned it into a vibrant character.
I've always felt that Bill had the single greatest moment of MASH. It was during "the Interview" episode when Father Mulcahy says this:
When the doctors cut into a patient and it's cold, you know the way it is now, today steam rises from the body and the doctor will will warm himself over the open wound. Could anyone look on that and not feel changed?
I never thought that line could make me any sadder, but from now on it will. RIP Bill Christopher.
And what's very eerie, Bill died one year to the day that Wayne Rogers died.
