The king of snide. The emperor of unctuous. He's the perfect casting for a mean-minded official, sinister headteacher, devious accountant or oily undertaker. It's always a pleasure to see him pop up on TV in 'Minder', 'Budgie', 'Doctor Who' or 'Tucker's Luck'. Or the odd period drama, from 'Poldark' and 'A Horseman Riding By' to 'War & Remembrance' (as Adolph Eichmann) and 'The Scarlet Pimpernel'. And let's not forget 'The Basil Brush Show', 'Coronation Street' and the popular kids' space movie 'The Empire Strikes Back' (1980).

It's UNCTUOUS, mate. Milton also contributed an advice for thesps column to THE STAGE in the 1990s.ReplyDelete
