"At Christmas I no more desire a rose Than wish a snow in May's new-fangled mirth; But like of each thing that in season grows."

I just googled him and didn't realise he'd played Sherlock Holmes on the radio and appeared twice in Doctor Who.
Quote from: Janie Jones on September 02, 2021, 10:09:38 AMA question for the oldies or nostalgic TV completists, there was a dark haired 40 ish man who popped up on TV comedies and kids' shows in the late 70s who specialised in a sort of resigned and miserable jobsworth demeanour, I remember him as a zookeeper, a little bit like Blakey off On The Buses but more understated, downtrodden and existentially pessimistic. He fitted the thread title well but I don't know his name.

Quote from: neveragain on September 02, 2021, 11:35:14 AMNeil McCaul - wonderful comic actor. Sadly best (or worst) remembered as Hitler in the ill-fated Heil Honey I'm Home (where he actually gives a great performance emulating the lead of a 50's American sitcom) but just watch him in the first episode of People Like Us. Just brilliantly deadpan and believable while still silly. Was in some soap or other for ages and produced some funny cock-ups for It'll Be Alright On The Night.
