Clocked a load of villains in "Regan", the pilot for The Sweeney:

Don Henderson, Morris Perry, David Daker, Stephen Yardley, Maureen Lipman. All good, but Morris Perry was superb.

Thanks to donations from members I've been able to move Planet Mondas to a faster server. But I'm still working on further improvements. Ad Revenue covers the server fees, but not my time, so if you like you can buy me a coffee, which will help fuel me! Thanks in advance! Mat Sadler (matjkd)

Having a rewatch of The Knights of God, spotted Owen Teague, Peter Childs and Teniel Evans - I'd missed them before.

And of course, Patrick Troughton. And then there's Gareth Thomas, playing a resistance leader again.

Re-watched The Pleasure Girls on DVD and was pleasantly surprised to see what Polly was up to before working at the Post Office Tower.

Watched the two surving episodes of The Quatermass Experiment a few days back. Duncan Lamont (Death to the Daleks) as the doomed astronaut, Peter Bathurst (the Governor in Power of the Daleks/Chin in Claws of Axos) as one of his dead crewmembers, Paul Whitsun-Jones (the Marshall from The Mutants).

But pride of place goes to the guy who played poacher Sam Seely in Spearhead as a copper.

Don't tell me it's actually been released on DVD?
Or was this just a YouTube?

The episodes I'd downloaded from youtube - it'll be a miracle on a par with Christ rising from the dead is this EVER sees a DVD release. You've more chance of getting a shag off the Pope.

How the mighty have fallen...

More spotted in The Sweeney: Russell Hunter, Linda Bellingham, Phillip Madoc, Frederick Jaeger (alongside Patrick Mower, so it's a Special Branch reunion), John Challis (Camfield directed that episode), Peter Halliday, Sally Faulkner, Micheal Sheard, Gabriel Woolfe, Myra Francis, Wanda Ventham and Leslie Schofield.

Paul Jerricho in a Secret Army I watched last night as a Nazi posing as a British airman to infiltrate the resistance smuggling line.
(Doctor Who) has been hijacked and redefined as a lucrative modern franchise. They've literally taken a square peg and painfully made it fit a round hole by taking enormous liberties with much of its fundamental essence. There's no turning back now.

Spotted Wolfe Morris as a small time crime boss in "Stoppo Driver", alongside Benny from Crossroads and "Dodgy" Don Beech from The Bill.

Lewis Fiander was in the last one I watched as a corrupt lawyer, whereas a young and very hot Maureen Lipman popped up in another episode.

Two more Sweeney episodes - John Hurt as the main villain in the first, the second episode was again a Camfield one, this time with Norman Kay as the villain.

Still with The Sweeney. The two films have Lynda Bellingham, Morris Perry, Bernard Kay in the first, with Lewis Fiander in the second - there may have been other faces but those spring to mind).

The episodes I've watched over the last few days have included Derek Francis, Hywell Bennett and Stephen Pacey (a bit of a stretch I know, but he's in a couple of Big Finish audios and has read some of the Target Books). One episode was directed by Douggie Camfield.

More Who faces lurking amongst the villains in The Sweeney. Today I've started series 4 and we've had Micheal Melia, Derek Martin (he's part of HAVOC and an uncredited soldier in The Claws of Axos, but he's best known as Charlie Slater in Eastenders) and Janet Ellis.
