Trek Today has video of Patrick Stewart carrying the Olympic torch through Croydon on July 23.
(Did they match him with Croydon because of its many science fictional associations — home to Doctor Who’s companion Sarah Jane Smith, for many years the residence of Darth Vader actor David Prowse, and still the headquarters of Banana Wings’ Claire Brialey and Mark Plummer?)
I saw the torch relay pass through Hollywood one night before the 1984 Olympics. Had goosebumps, caught up in the emotion of the moment. Also remember during that season they illuminated the Hollywood sign’s white letters in an array of colors.
