Leslie Schofield

Leslie Schofield: 

One of those long-faced types who often populate the perifery of British drama, appearing as ratty villains, petty bureaucrats, sleazy bohemians and indignant customers. He has appeared in films ranging from 'Star Wars' (as the splendidly named Moradmin Bast) to 'Villain' and 'Force 10 From Navarone'. His TV career started on a moderate high, with parts in 'Doctor Who', 'Softly Softly', 'The XYY Man', 'Blakes 7' and of course modern parent Tom* in 'The Fall & Rise of Reginald Perrin'. Latterly he's been seen in 'Juliet Bravo', 'Coronation Street', 'EastEnders', 'ChuckleVision' and the inevitable 'Midsomer Murders'.

In 'Randall & Hopkirk (Deceased)'.

*It had been bothering me that Mr Schofield somehow wasn't the Tom from Reggie Perrin that I remembered. Turns out that the part was played by TIM PREECE in the first series. Accordingly, I add an annexed mini-salute to Mr Preece here.
