My first photographic contribution here and it looks like Victor has found his first fan. Actually, the man
with him is none other than John Rudling, who later played Penelope Keith's butler Brabinger in sitcom
To the Manor Born
. In this scene from The Invisible Man
episode Point of Destruction
(1959), he gives
Test Pilot Victor the go-ahead to fly a plane ... but it soon crashes (due to the evil doctor's tampering).

A few days after I spotted Victor in that ITC show he was back in another, this time in the entertaining
episode The Ubiquitous Mr Lovegrove (1965)
. He plays a cashier in a casino that is part of
an odd dream Patrick McGoohan is having (yes, another one!). With them here is Edward Underdown:
I have yet another excuse to mention The Day the Earth Caught Fire, Gerald, as Edward's appearance is not the only connection. Peter Butterworth's in it too, in a rare villainous role, but they didn't have any scenes together. Nor did Peter get the chance to act with his Carry On colleague Patsy Rowlands, who played one of the gamblers. Instead he formed an unusual double-act with Mike Pratt. I'll post a capture of them at 'Actors We Didn't Expect To See Together' soon.
