Phillip Madoc along with the Welsh chap who was in Dad's Army for a while (Can't remember his name) were the go to people if they ever needed a Welsh person in a TV programme back in the day. Madoc though was a good actor with that strong, deep voice, Either a villan or a person in authority.
That would have been Talfryn Thomas(1922-82) who played Private Cheesman after there was a spare position in the platoon after James Beck(1929-73) suddenly died.
Thomas was only in one series(1974) he had a major part in Survivors(1975) as Tom Price. His part in subsequent Dads Army series was not reprised.

The late Ruth Madoc was at one time married (1961-81) to fellow actor Philip.
Philip Madoc(1934-2012) played the U Boat Captain in the memorable 1973 Dads Army episode “Desperate Attachment”

I started watching a four part documentary series on the BBC iPlayer last night.
My Life as a Rolling Stone.
Although it’s been available since the summer it’ll be there for a few more months yet if anyone is interested.
The episodes are individually about (and include archive footage of and interviews with) Charlie Watts, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Mick Jagger.
I know a bit about the Rolling Stones but wouldn’t consider myself a fan particularly, so I‘ve already learnt some interesting things e.g. the crucial importance of the late Charlie Watts’ drumming style to their music and the fact that the unique guitar sound of Keith Richards is partly because he removes one string from his guitars so only plays off five.
I’ve not watched the the final two episodes yet, but I imagine they’ll be good too.
They’ve mentioned several times on the series that it’s the band’s 60th anniversary this year.
Not bad considering Charlie Watts’ widow sometime around the time of their wedding in 1964 said to her mother-in-law that she was finding his frequent absences from home recording and touring difficult to deal with.
Mrs Watts senior apparently replied not to worry it’ll all be over in a year or two!

10th December 1980.

Fantasy Island on ITV London. It was shown in most regions at various times, not Networked.
Iirc it rocked up on a Sunday afternoon in the Westward TV area.
A surreal drama to say the least, though it did run for 7 seasons(154 episodes) More suited for US audiences than on this side of the pond.
Starring Ricarldo Montalbán & Hervé Villechaize as Mr Roake & Tattoo respectively(left & right in photo)
‘Fantasy Island where dreams come true’

Watched a recording of the 1975 Dads Army Christmas Special.. My Brother & I. One of my favourites where Captain Mainwarings drunken brother Barry turns up in Warmington on Sea much to the straight laced Captains embarrassment.
Arthur Lowe played the part of his brother. Just one scene when they are together.
The camera angles during the scene are positioned so that only one of the brothers is seen at once, the other speaking out of vision, allowing Arthur Lowe to pre-record his dialogue for the unseen brother.

It’s on Gold again next Tuesday( 13th Dec) at 8:10pm & on BBC2 on Boxing Day at 6.30pm.
