Just watched the second episode of Special Branch. Apparently the police commander in the first season of Special Branch was in Terror of the Autons. He's the timelord who meets the Doctor at the research station.

Morris Perry is a delight to watch as the slimy and slippery Moxon, whereas Derren Nesbit is a terribly wooden actor.

Paul Darrow gives an electrifying performance as a lawyer at an inquest. Very Avon.

Plodding through Special Branch further, we've had Geoffrey Bayldon and Frank Windsor (The Promised Land), Micheal Keating (A Date with Leonidas) and John Bailey and Edward Burnham (The Kazamirov Affair). The latter also had a young Ray Smith (Spikings from Dempsey & Makepeace).

The title music is odd, quite jazzy but ends up like the theme from the Adam West "Batman"

Not spotted but heard the ol' Black Guardian's voice booming out of some Count's mouth at the start of Lust for a Vampire.

Hurray! I've reached the colour episodes of Special Branch, so apart from the sublime Fulton McKay, I've spotted George Pravda and John Bryans (he's in Creature from the Pit, but I always think of him as Councillor Berkol and Shrinker from Blake's 7).

Oh, there was also the bloke who was Bob Hall in Evil of the Daleks too.

A whole bunch in The Sea Wolves, including Moray Watson from Black Orchid, Bernard Archer from Pyramids of Mars and Morgan Shepherd from Impossible Astronaut.
Also saw The Cybernauts episode of The Avengers, which has both Frederick Jaeger and Bernard Horsfall.
(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 Julian Glover, Denis Lill, Camille Coduri and a very young looking John Simm in last night's episode of Rumpole of the Bailey on TPTV.

With my finger on the pulse of new TV guff, I've started getting into the Sharpe series of TV films, starring Sean Bean, who, I was once told, replaced Paul McGann in the lead role (after he injured his knee in a footie game, played during a break in filming).

Michael Cochrane (from Black Orchid and Ghostlight) plays a semi regular baddie in the series, Sir Henry Simmerson.

Here he is being torn a new one, by Sir Arthur Wellesley, not yet the Duke of Wellington ( played rather well by David Troughton, son of Pat, and a huge rubber nose).




PS. Not Who related, but a young Daniel Craig also appears in this episode, as a caddish, gentleman lieutenant.

Now that we all know about the rude bits, aren't they rude? And as we get older, they get ruder and ruder. :oops:
