This is a bit obscure but does anyone remember the series The Time Tunnel? I think it was probably the first thing I saw Jim McMullan in when her appeared in a episode playing Merlin the magician. A few Dallas alumni appeared in that series looking so young that they are almost unrecognisable.

In a previous life, yes. It was the same season as THE GREEN HORNET. Good times. Unless you were in Saigon.

Yeah, you could totally buy him and Donna together.
I could totally see why Donna wanted to marry him.

He played the character well. He was good looking & had a warm personality.

If any character was to take Donna off Ray, Senator Andrew Dowling was the right character.

He'll be missed. One of the show's better Guest Star's. :cry:

Sorry to hear of Mr. McMullan's passing. :rip:

So in the Dallas universe, Texas' two senators in the US Senate were Sen. Dave Culver and Sen. Andrew Dowling? I assumed Sen. Dowling was from Texas in those stories but I never remember it being an established fact. :think:

In the early days, there was Senator Wild Bill Orloff and, briefly, Senator Bobby Ewing. Later, there was Senator O'Dell (aka Paul Galveston aka Sheriff Titus Semple).

I'm not sure that he was.

I was always under the assumption that Bobby was a State Senator (as opposed to US Senator) as he was always going to Austin. I always found the politics of Dallas interesting.

Wild Bill was a State Senator as well. Cliff ran for the seat he had vacated, but lost to the dull Martin Cole of Fort Worth, who as KGIM viewers were assumed to know, was married to either the niece or daughter of the still-popular Mr. Orloff

Sorry to hear the news, I thought his character was rather dull on Dallas but a good match with similar interest for Donna in the show
RIP Jim McMullan
