Dirk Benedict as Columbo

Former A-Team star Dirk Benedict has been forced to pull out of a performance at the Lichfield Garrick.

The ex-Battlestar Galactica actor had been due to play Columbo at the theatre in a production Prescription: Murder in February 2011.

However, the star will now be replaced by another actor after citing personal reasons for his withdrawal.

It is not yet known who replace Benedict in the show, which runs at the Garrick from February 22 to 26.

For more information, visit or call the box office on 01543 412121.
