Default Captain Steve Minto - UFO

Somewhat late in the day, I discover the origin of Steven Berkoff's character's uncommon surname in The Cat With Ten Lives.

In 1970, Mr Berkoff married painter Alison MINTO. So it doesn't take a Holmesian genius to work out the obvious connection.

Not sure that this has been mentioned before.

Yes, quite interesting. There was a story of sorts in the Daily Mail today quoting Berkoff and his dissatisfaction with Jeremy Corbyn and it mentions Alison Minto as his first wife.

Presumably when it came to UFO he was able to pick his own surname for his character!
