Actor-songwriter Trevor Peacock passes - appeared with Beatles on TV and wrote Herman's Hermits hit

British actor Trevor Peacock, who appeared with the Fab Four as Peter Quince in the "Midsummer Night's Dream" segment of the "Around the Beatles" TV special, died March 8 at age 89.

Peacock is likely best known to British TV fans for his role as Jim Trott in the BBC series "The Vicar of Dibley." He also was a successful songwriter, penning "Mrs. Brown, You've Got a Lovely Daughter," a major hit for Herman's Hermits, along with songs recorded by Beatles-associated folks such as the Vernons Girls, Joe Brown, Billy Fury and Bernard Cribbins.
