† October 28 1945 - March 19 2009
Here's a difficult one. I'm assuming with fingers crossed that Mr Greene is still with us, but I haven't been able to verify it. Things are confused by the fact that there is another Peter Greene in the movies (the American one who played bad guy Zed in 'Pulp Fiction').
The one I'm saluting here is the lanky red-headed chap you've seen playing the clueless chaplain of St Swithin's Hospital in ITV's 'Doctor in Charge', or perhaps as Grace Brothers' resident boffin, demonstrating a dummy that drops its own trousers in 'Are You Being Served?'.
|Chrissie's pipe-smoking boyfriend in 'Man About the House'
He appeared in two episodes of 'The Young Ones': as a teacher in a 'Grange Hill' spoof scene with Ben Elton; and as the vicar in Rik's favourite sitcom 'Oh Crikey!'
|As the man from the BBC in the 'Dad's Army' skit from
'A Christmas Night With The Stars' in 1972
The trail goes cold with this sketchy imdb snippet from 2002: 'Works for an independent research company, but still does corporate work and directs local shows.'

Postscript and apologia:
In my initial post, I inexcusably gave Mr Greene the credit for one of British cinema's finest 'Fwooooaarr!'s as Henry the clumsy ambulance driver in 'Carry On Doctor' (1967). Click here. This is of course the late Peter Gilmore. I'm indebted to r lewis for the correction.
Sorry to hear, via the contribution in comments below, that Peter Greene passed away in 2009
