Peter Armitage

Peter Armitage: 

† Oct 23 1939 – Nov 30 2018
Rugged northern fellow probably best-known as Bill Webster in 'Coronation Street' or as the Yellow Pages advert dad who laments 'I were right about that saddle, though'. Like many authentic salt of the earth-type character actors, he came through the Joan Greenwood/Harry H Corbett-mentored East-15 acting school and went on to appear in TV roles in 'The Sweeney', 'The Professionals', 'Strangers', 'G.B.H', and the inevitable 'Holby City'/'Casualty'/'The Royal'. Lots of "By 'eck, think on mind..." etc
