In June 2013, Gascoine publicly revealed that she had Alzheimer's disease, at a Beverly Hills gala which was set up to raise money to fight the disease. In August 2016, her husband Alfred Molina reported that she was "in a very advanced stage of Alzheimer's", and had been in a specialist care home for over two years. She died on April 23, 2020 in Los Angeles, two weeks after her 83rd birthday.


Gascoine made an appearance at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2008, whereupon she announced her retirement from acting. Five years later, it was revealed that she had been diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease.


In 1997, Gascoine was diagnosed with kidney cancer, though the disease was detected early and she made a full recovery.


As her screen work began to wind down, she turned to writing, publishing a trio of novels, respectively, in 1995, 1995 and 1997.


In addition to her television work, the actress also performed on the West End stage, including a starring role as Dorothy Brock in a 1987 revival of the musical 42nd Street at The Theatre Royal, Drury Lane. Her younger co-star (as Peggy Sawyer) was Catherine Zeta-Jones.


In 1986, Gascoine married fellow London-born actor Alfred Molina and in the 90s made her home in Los Angeles, though she returned to the U. K. on a number of occasions.


Eyes (1985) (akin to a British Charlie's Angels (1976)), with Maggie turned private eye.


However, she ultimately became best-known for her role as the emancipated, forthright DI Maggie Forbes in the ITV series The Gentle Touch (1980), the very first British police drama featuring a female (senior) police officer.


The concept may well have been inspired by the earlier American series Police Woman (1974). Publicity claimed that London 'bobbies' wrote to the producers of Gentle Touch, attesting to its authenticity (interesting footnote: the reason why there was never any footage of Maggie actually driving a car was that Gascoine had never learned to drive). There was a later, more action-oriented spin-off, entitled C. A. T. S.


Her first recurring TV role was as Letty, the prim, philanthropically-minded wife of taciturn sea captain James Onedin (Peter Gilmore) in The Onedin Line (1971).


Finlay's Casebook (1962), Dixon of Dock Green (1955), Softly Softly: Task Force (1969) and Raffles (1975).


Jill Viola Gascoine was born in Lambeth, London, on April 11 1937. She was educated at Tiffin's Girls School (by her own account, a traumatic experience) and later studied at the Italia Conti Academy of Performing Arts in London. She began her career as a fifteen-year old chorine in pantomime and spent a decade-long apprenticeship singing and dancing in revues and musicals. Married at 28, her first husband was a compulsive gambler who also resented her ambition of becoming an actress and abandoned her and her two children some time during the late 60s. Having to support her family on a single income, Gascoine found work in Glasgow cabaret as a singer and dancer. She was eventually able to get into acting with a repertory company in Dundee and from there (with the aid of theatrical agent Marina Martin) landed parts in popular television dramas including Dr.


Daughter of Francis (1907-1995) & Irene (née Greenwood) Gascoine (1910-1956). An only child.
