Just on Glynn Edwards I’m surprised no one has mentioned him as Dave the barman in Minder.

I can't believe nobody has mentioned John Laurie. Fraser from Dad's Army in "Wallah-Wallah Catsmeat"!!!

John Laurie in the 40s also appeared in a very early film version of Shakespeare's HENRY V which featured a 10yo GEORGE COLE (Minder) in his first ever television role... (uncredited)

Did anyone mention Richard Hurndall from 'Any Old Iron' yet? He replaced William Hartnell as the first Doctor in The Five Doctors because Hartnell had passed on several years previously.
I thought we'd nick a wreath off one of the graves as we went in.

I never knew that, thanks!! I knew Hartnell was replaced in that because of bad health, but never knew the Steptoe connection. Fantastic. Doctor Who was as revolutionary as Steptoe was - it altered a who genre.

I suppose the early ones were pretty good but I lost interest in them when Sylvester McCoy was cast. Can't stand that David Tennant either. Always looks like he's coked up to the eyeballs

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Tennant was brilliant, but Eccleston was the greatest. McCoy was bad, but MCGann was the worst, if we forget David niven in the movies... Great to have a Steptoe connection to it.

According to the sources I have seen, Hartnell passed away in 1975 and The Five Doctors wasn't released until 1983, so it's not that he wasn't available due to illness (unless you count being dead in the grave for 8 years as 'illness').

Didn't Peter Cushing star in a couple of films as the Doctor? I seem to remember watching one with a young Bernard Cribbins and quite liking it
