Philip Whitchurch

  1. Kenneth Cranham, Dead Man’s Folly, TV, 1986.    Whitchuch was a busy TV actor  buyt Cranham always the better cop. (On radio, too; indeed, on Radio Four). His Detective Inspector Bland told Peter Ustinov’s Hercule Poirot: “I was  present when you solved the ABC Murders 15 years ago.”  Except that tale, renamed The Alphabet Murders by MGM, was made 22 years earlier. I know because I was present on the Elstree set, interviewing Tony Randall who was Agatha Christie’s Blegian sleuth (!).  And there was no Bland in the cast. Unless he was David Lodge ‘s anonymous Sergeant.
