Apart from Frank Thornton.

He's played four different characters: The Economist, 65 Today, Steptoe A La Carte and Steptoe & Son Ride Again.

The Vicar 100% - it's most inclement out.

I'm also a big fan of Mr Greenwood, the income tax inspector from Live Now PAYE Later - "painful..."

There’s lots of characters from “Ride Again” I'd liked to have seen more of that deserved to be in the telly series. Bill Maynard (George), Neil McCarthy (Lennie), Milo O’Shea (Dr. Popplewell), everyone getting hammered. Not to mention their wives, alternately weeping and doing high kicks :shock:. A favorite bit, when Frank Thornton (as the insurance salesman) wasn’t spared the drunken invective, “...He’s a shop steward!" :lol:
