† Jun 25 1928 – May 2 2017
Specialising in the affable sort of toff, jolly sort of magistrate and approachable sort of army officer, this old Etonian has been popping up on TV and in films for the last 60 years. My favourites among his many roles are Lord Collingford in 'Catweazle' and Chief Constable Chubb in 'The Flaxborough Chronicles', but you may have seen him in 'The Avengers', 'The Saint', 'Quiller', or 'Rumpole of The Bailey'. Or maybe 'The Darling Buds Of May' or, quelle surprise, 'Midsomer Murders'. Seems like a gent, anyway.
