† March 23 1921 – October 16 2021*
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'.
Edit: October 19, 2021. Sad to hear that the redoubtable Geoffrey Chater has passed away at the great age of 100. An excellent innings.
