Clive Swift

Clive Swift: 

Tidy and precise sort of actor, often typecast as the timid official or henpecked husband - for example, the long-suffering Richard Bucket in the interminable 'Keeping Up Appearances'. His earlier career included some interesting British films like 'Death Line' (1973), 'Frenzy' (1972), the Dave Clark 5 clunker 'Catch Us If You Can' (1965) and Peter Hall's 'Midsummer Night's Dream' (1968). I'd be disappointed if he hadn't been in 'Doctor Who', 'Heartbeat', 'Tales Of The Unexpected' and 'Minder', but of course, he was.

He was also in the 1972 BBC 'Dead of Night' ghost story 'The Exorcism' - looking pretty groovy.
