Richard Doyle didn't exactly sweep into the Costa Mesa restaurant like a Hollywood star, but he might have. In a sweater the color of lime sherbet, with a pair of sunglasses dangling from his collar and his hair slicked down, he looked as though he had just taken a meeting at the Polo Lounge. Doyle's Tinseltown meetings usually take place on the San Diego Freeway in his phone-equipped Volkswagen.

Pssst! Richard Doyle is b-i-g, as in giant Hollywood close-up. For anyone who hasn't noticed--and, says the South Coast Repertory actor, "very few have"--that's Doyle playing the backup pilot who tries to save Harrison Ford and the free world in "Air Force One." Doyle's furrowed, square-jawed face fills the screen in the summer blockbuster from Sony Pictures Entertainment, which grossed $55 million in its first week and tops the current box-office list in the trade magazine Variety.

Mr. and Mrs. Arnold Jacobs, our lifelong family friends . . . avid Times readers and theatergoers as well, loved the article ("For Richard Doyle, an Actor's Life Is Driving" by Jan Herman, Calendar Sept. 20). I'm of the same mind. It is the most interesting, timely, colorful and informative--not to mention accurate--interview I've had to date. Thank you for doing such a professional job. RICHARD DOYLE Santa Ana Doyle is a founding member of South Coast Repertory.

David Emmes, producing artistic director of South Coast Repertory Theatre, left this week for Singapore to explore the prospect of an SCR tour of the Far East with stops in Hong Kong and Tokyo. "The Singapore Arts Festival extended an invitation for the company to come over with a production in June of 1990," Martin Benson, who co-directs the Costa Mesa troupe, said Tuesday. "We've talked about the possibility of doing two plays there in repertory. I think it probably will be a 'go.' " Benson cautioned, however, that Emmes hadn't yet seen the theatrical facilities in Singapore.

M emo to Bing Crosby, Hans Christian Andersen and William Shakespeare, c/o Eternity (V.I.P. Section): Dear guys, I know you probably hang with different crowds up there, but there's something happening in Costa Mesa that should bring the three of you together. It seems South Coast Repertory's Young Conservatory Players are staging a musical version of "The Emperor's New Clothes" (sound familiar, Hans?). The folks behind it say they got a lot of their inspiration from you, Bill.

In the strange case of the derelict house, there's no mystery surrounding the identity of its most famous occupant. Not only did Arthur Conan Doyle live at Undershaw, but he designed the place himself and produced some of his finest work under its gabled roofs, including "The Hound of the Baskervilles. " What baffles John Gibson is how the home of one of Britain's best-known authors has been all but abandoned, left to fall into disrepair and pegged for conversion into a block of apartments.

The Straits Times, Singapore's most prominent newspaper, gave South Coast Repertory's "You Never Can Tell" a mixed review. It called the production "well-crafted," the sets "superbly adaptable" and the costumes "charming." But the show "failed to engage the emotions." Richard Doyle was praised for his "commanding presence" and John-David Keller for his "poignant" performance.
