Clive Merrison

Clive Merrison: 

Of rather cadaverous and ascetic demeanour, he has played a succession of doctors, politicians, courtiers, teachers and other vaguely sinister and authoritarian parts in 'Crown Court', 'Yes Prime Minister', 'Doctor Who' (1967 & 1987), 'The Borgias' and 'Reilly, Ace Of Spies'. He is also the voice of the BBC's radio incarnation of Sherlock Holmes* (1989-98) and played Fenelon-Barnes in 'The English Patient' (1996) and the headmaster in 'The History Boys' (2006).

*Surely wasted on radio...
Sidney Paget's evocation of Sherlock Holmes, 1904
