Colin Jeavons

Colin Jeavons:

Excelling at the more unctious and sinister of minor characters, he was memorable as Shadrack in the TV 'Billy Liar', although unavoidably overshadowed by Leonard Rossiter's  movie portrayal, he also featured in 'Blue Remembered Hills', several episodes of 'The Avengers', 'The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy', and has played both Moriarty and Inspector Lestrade in various Sherlock Holmes adaptations. He also sang the theme-tune and narrated 'Barnaby The Bear'. And this: 'Joe'.

As a ex-POW in an episode of 'The Baron'

  1. Loved his work. I recall him playing in a Dickensian play, where he really was creepy, he says "I am ever so Umble Sir...." If I knew my Dickens, I could name the character.

  2. I totally agree, he is a treat to watch. It's Uriah Heep in 'David Copperfield', Jeavons is in the 1966 BBC version.
