    Original thread:

    Extras in 'Public Eye'


    My thanks again to Andrew Pixley for supplying the uncredited names, and to Britmovie's Gerald
    Lovell for some good work in the last few weeks identifying a few faces in surviving ABC episodes.


    We start with Ray Smith, Alfred Burke and our first subject Vic Taylor in Shades of White (1971):

    Inspector Firbank, Frank Marker and the unnamed detective are following suspicious housekeeper Sheila Allen!


    The lucky girl about to replace Marker in the red telephone box (not many left now) is Maris Hendrick:

    Not a misprint. There really is a Maris Hendrick. Now a mature model:

      Jason Ives, I presume. As a 'police aide' in Series 5's finale John VII, Verse 24 :
      ‚ÄčClick image for larger version  Name:	Jason Ives in Public Eye -  John VII, Verse 24.jpg Views:	0 Size:	55.0 KB ID:	68076

      Recorded on 29th April 1971. The cast finished work just in time to watch that evening's (surviving) Top of the Pops
      episode featuring McGuinness Flint (which included Gallagher and Lyle) and Pan's People dancing to Mama's Pearl


      The WPC bringing tea into Insp. Firbank's interview room in Ward of Court, taped two weeks earlier, is Jean Seagrove:

      Stephanie Bidmead is fighting for custody of son John Ash with estranged husband Brian McDermott.


      I believe I've found Jean's appearance in Shades of White and will attempt a comparison in my next post.

        Re: Jean Seagrove

        Difficult to prove there is a likeness between these tiny images from John VII, Verse 24
        and Shades of White, where Jean (?) is in black and white, smiling and has her hair down:

          Leila Hart

          Evoking memories of Britt Ekland in The Wicker Man, Leila is briefly seen as 'The Landlord's Daughter'
          in this mini-musical scene from a 1980 episode of The Two Ronnies. Her father is played by Fred Lucas:

          That credited
          appearance helped me identify her as one of the nurses in How About a Cup of Tea? (1975):

          Ray Smith, in his last Public Eye episode, is visiting Marker in hospital, following his attack in a barber shop.


          Cropped for Movie Dude, in the hope he'll create a page for her:

          The uncredited cast list states that the other two nurses are played by Penny Lambeth (or maybe
          Lambirth?) and Monique Bryant, who is familiar enough for me to confirm she's NOT one of them.

            Marvellous stuff, cornershop! In the original thread, you've already given us good coverage of the multiple roles played by extras in "The Beater and the Game" (obviously some of the Thames records don't give individual role attributions), but at that time, we all thought this gentleman was Terry Rendell (or Terry Rendle) with barman George played by Hubert Rees:

            When in fact we now know he's Billy John. He does his bit in the episode as a hotel guest, pub patron and passerby and ironically and confusingly, Terry Rendell is listed in the extras section too! I think there's still conjecture as to who Terry is, but by a process of elimination, it's possible he's the gent with moustache in the far background (with Billy John just out of shot!), (left) because Terry is the only other extra in this in common with the Elders extras in DOCTOR WHO "Planet of Fire" from 13 years later (right):

            As cornershop mentioned before, John More is in "The Beater and the Game" as well, although he's listed as "John Moore".

              Thanks, Gerald. The man with the moustache behind Terence Rigby (above) is definitely Garth Watkins:

              From the episode John VII, Verse 24

              I remember the Billy John/Terry Rendell confusion at the old thread. Significantly, Movie Dude has only two 'identifications' of the latter, one of which ( bottom left) is a brilliant match for the Beater and the Game image. They could ALL be the same man. Is there a chance he really is Terry Rendell (seeing as he's named in the uncredited cast list) or do you have confirmation that he's Billy John?

                The Terry Rendell (Rendall/Rendle)-Billy John debate continues: they're both in "The Beater and the Game" and years later, THE CRIMSON PERMANENT ASSURANCE. I think it was Dave or philly who put up a Spotlight picture of Billy John, possibly on the old forum, and it's definitely the chap in the pub picture in post #7 and all four of the group of those in your post #8. There is a lookalike - Movie Dude's Unknown Male 10 - but as far as I know, it's not considered he is Terry: certainly, he's never been seen in any of the "Terry Rendell within groups of extras" that have been examined.

                  I am familiar with Unknown Male 10. So many images yet still without a name.

                  Optimistic that your unidentified passer-by in Doctor Who -
                  Spearhead from Space, Part 1 is Public Eye extra Joy Burnett:

                  She is in the uncredited cast list for Come Into the Garden, Rose,
                  which was also recorded in 1970. The hairstyles appear similar ...

                  Alfred Burke behind the display window.


                  A more straightforward identification here. Penny Price in It's a Woman's Privilege (taped in 1972):

                  'Secretary'? I thought that was Yvonne Gilan (to James Laurimore)? Unless she's Brian Deacon's.


                  Cool addition - Penny graced the Daily Express's William Hickey column on 31st December 1971:

                    Curiously enough, it's "Come into the Garden, Rose" I wanted to mentioned today as well. I'm not sure about Joy Burnett, cornershop, as she's only in Episode Four of "Spearhead from Space" and that DOCTOR WHO image is from Episode One. The BBC records are often notoriously unreliable but they list Rachel Hipwood and Marie Johnson as the only unplaced female extras for that episode and sadly neither of those ladies are on the "Rose" extras list.

                    Brian Nolan you spotted in this before (he's in "Spearhead from Space" too!); Brian's in the pub and later in the hotel, but in white hat, this seems to be Pearl Walters in the tearoom (and later on she pitches up in the Home):

                    Having tea too is Stenson Falcke on the upper level. He's about the only one there not wearing a hat!:

                    Did you ever resolve the identification of Ron Tingley in CALLAN? He's in "Rose" as well, and I'm wondering if this is he wearing glasses in the background in the latter pub scene:

                    This man is also a hotel guest later on. The only other alternative would be Peter Holmes.

                      A shame about the unsuccessful comparison with Joy Burnett. It looked to be a good match. Her IMDb credit for the Doctor Who serial will have to be changed then if it's mistakenly listed as Episode 1. Obviously I didn't get round to posting my captures of Stenson Falcke and Pearl Walters at the old forum. The former is identical.

                      Re: Ron Tingley

                      The man with the glasses in your last screencap has to be Cy Town, who is behind Alfred Burke here:

                      The mysterious Peter Holmes on the right?

                      I think that's Ron Tingley between Alfie and barman John
                      Devaut. Comparison with the Callan image you alluded to:

                      Back to that Callan picture (from That'll Be the Day). It's possible they were reunited as Cy is facing our subject:

                        I'm pretty sure that's not Cy Town in the glasses at the back there. I'm wondering if it is the gentleman on the right next to Cy in your image below - maybe Peter Holmes - who has borrowed Cy's glasses!

                          We should point out that Anne Carroll, who sadly passed away not long ago, and screen husband Graham Armitage are next to Alfred Burke in the larger image.

                        Unknown Male 10
                        I have long thought that he is the actor known as George Feasey, the only evidence is a small out of focus shot in Monty Python's Flying Circus - How not to be Seen, broadcast in 1970, this is four years after the latest cap on UM10's page, if it is him, his hairline has continued to recede and he has grown the hair round the back of his head longer. George Feasey is also in a Public Eye episode (i forget which now), unfortunately it's a restaurant scene and he is a customer and none of them are identifiable, all out of focus, he is also probably George Seasey in a Mystery and Imagination episode, again there are more names in the booklet than are spotted in the scene, no-one looks like UM10 or the Monty Python George.

                          At least we know that's Cy Town with the extra I've 'pencilled in' as Ron Tingley, who is even more elusive in my screencaps from his IMDb-credited episodes of Villains and Doctor at Large. Where can he be (putting it politely)?

                          I think I've found Edith Saville in Come Into the Garden, Rose. Behind George Sewell and Madge Ryan:
