Broad and brawny actor, now most familiar as Roy Evans in 'EastEnders' - the genial car salesman who stepped into the shoes of his rogueish counterpart Frank Butcher (Mike Reid) - in fact Tony Caunter has played his small part in some of the best of British cinema and television.
|Tony Caunter in 'The Likely Lads': a classic tragicomic moment. Terry reluctantly |
joins the Army to stick with his mate Bob, who is sent home because of his flat feet.
You could, for example, have seen him in a host of cult classics, from 'The Avengers', 'The Saint' and 'The Champions' in the '60s, through to 'The Professionals', 'The Sweeney' and 'Minder', not to mention fanboy favourites like 'Catweazle', 'Blakes 7', and of course 'Doctor Who' (in three stories: 'The Crusade', 'Colony in Space' and 'Enlightenment') .
|As Kenneth Cope's exasperated site manager in 'Catweazle'.|
'He that moves the Wogle Stone, all alone shall moan and groan.'
