Dear @Robin_Askwith , could you please share the photo of Windsor Davies in the cupboard again? I think it will lift all our delicate spirits. Thank you.

That's a very small Windsor Davies. Thought he was Dick Emery at first.

"I'm just popping out to do my milk round Windsor, please wait in the cupboard!"

"No problem, boyo! Shag a few birds on your round for me, eh?"

Showed this picture of Windsor Davies in a cupboard to my brother, who said "Imagine checking into a hotel room and finding this!"

Quick as a flash, I replied, "Even worse, imagine finding it when you were checking out!"

Lovely.  Would like to take this opportunity to record the existence of the Robin Askwith Charity XI football team, which has left no trace on the internet.  But now it has.

It's the Jagger resemblance that did it for him, isn't it?

Is that wardrobe really a time portal/teleportation device that only Windsor Davis can use to swap places with people in any location, whether they like it or not?

eta: That guy with a pint seems to be thinking 'fuck me, I'm stuck in a wardrobe, I was outside a pub a second ago'
eta2: from the look on his face I think he's just found bits of Prince Philip floating in his pint (either that or he's just realised it's piss).

Possible explanation for Windsor in a wardrobe?
(from the shitcoms thread)

There was a story at the time Bottle Boys was on (and it was recognised as being extremely poor even at the time) that Robin Askwith hid in a cupboard rather than film that week's episode, so awful was the script. I think it was the Daily Mirror's TV critic at the time who was so impressed by this that she instigated the Commemorative Robin Askwith Plaque for services to television comedy.
