Subject: George Logan, Hinge and Bracket star, dies aged 78

Written By: Philip Eno on 05/22/23 at 8:28 am

Entertainer George Logan, one part of the the Hinge and Bracket comedy and musical act, has died at the age of 78.

He played Dr Evadne Hinge in the duo, who were well known in the 1970s and 80s with TV shows on the BBC and a radio programme on BBC Radio 2.

South Lanarkshire-born Logan launched his drag routine with Patrick Fyffe to acclaim at the 1974 Edinburgh Festival.

The pair also performed on two Royal Variety shows and appeared for royalty on more than 15 occasions.

The characters Hinge and Bracket were elderly women living in a fictional Sussex village, who spent their time reminiscing about their careers in classical music. The pair both sang, with Hinge playing along on the piano.

They appeared in the series Hinge and Bracket on BBC One from 1978 to 81, and on Dear Ladies, which ran on BBC Two in 1983 and 1984.
