The very image of the establishment, he has played ministers, lawyers, bankers and doctors since the early 1950s. His film credits include impressive entries such as 'Gandhi', 'If', 'Barry Lyndon', and 'O Lucky Man', as well as unlikely oddments like Reg Varney's drag-act monstrosity 'The Best Pair of Legs in The Business'. His appearances on British TV include semi-regular roles in 'Callan', 'Devenish' and 'Mapp & Lucia', plus endless parts in everything from 'Jason King', Steptoe & Son' and 'Some Mothers Do Ave Em' to 'Brideshead Revisited', 'Harry Enfield' and 'Dad's Army'.
