Nicholas Parsons

  1. David Tomlinson, Master of Bankdam, 1947.       Too busy for one of the central- and divided – Crowther family,the plummy-voiced Parsons had time only forthe smaller role of a certain Edgar Holeyhouse.
  2. Ken Dodd, Doctor Who #146: Delta and The Bannermen, TV, 1987.      Chimeron Queen Delta escapes the baddies and heads to Disneyland (!) but arrives at… a Welsh holiday camp. Talking of which, the plummy Parsons was in the mix for The Tollmaster. Some of the unit were annoyed by the Beeb’s “celebrity casting” of Dodd, a superstar comic.
