He and his wife were so dissatisfied with Fawlty Towers that they chose another hotel, "next to the prophylactic emporium." :shock:

I'd forgotten about that, good spot.
Richard Davies was also in One Foot in the Grave episode, ''Monday morning will be fine'', Mocking Meldrew in a case of mistaken identity.
Anthony Sharp (The Vicar) if i can recall correctly was in the TV Series To the Manor Born.

Neil also appeared in the films Zulu and Where Eagles Dare.
Richard Davies who played the Butcher in the second Steptoe film, (where Albert sneezes on the steak) also appeared in Zulu.


I spotted him in the film version of "George and Mildred" the other day!

JG Devlin's last role was as the priest in Bread.

The episode with the most other stars, I believe, was 'Oh What a Beautiful Mourning'. Of course there was Molly Sugden, Tommy Godfrey and Rita Webb in that one, and I don't think I have to mention their credentials because they should be well known by everyone. Yvonne Antrobus, who I believe was in a Doctor Who, among others. George A Cooper, who had a long and varied career including long running roles in Grange Hill and Billy Liar. Queenie Watts who was Mrs. Keene on Dad's Army, and also played many other roles. Gilly Flowers who did several episodes of Fawlty Towers, and there were other veteran actors in that episode with somewhat long, but also somewhat forgettable careers with but a few highlights. Margaret Flint played Lenny Godper's mum in an episode of Porridge as well as a customer caught in the clutches of the evil Arkwright in Open All Hours. Several of the above mentioned actors also had minor roles in Z-Cars, The Bill, Coronation Street and other popular television shows and films of the time.
I thought we'd nick a wreath off one of the graves as we went in.

I saw Angus Mackay (the bed salesman, from And so to Bed) the other day in One Foot in the Grave.
He was in the episode 'The Eternal Quadrangle', the one where Victor takes up painting nude models :D

Another one in Oh What a Beautiful Mourning was Bartlett Mullins who was Old Cloughie in the original Likely Lads series, playing one of Albert's brothers.

Well spotted Stephen - I just watched 'Mourning' . Gilly Flowers was also in it as well as 'Seance in a wet reg and bone yard' .

She played one of the Ladies in Fawlty Towers, one of her funniest lines was in The Kipper when she was shut in the wardrope by Basil with the dead body - That Thing as she called it :) :)

I grew up with him as the Caretaker in "Grange Hill". That and the bloke in the Job Centre in "Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em".
