        Things are looking up for the latest boyfriend of landlady Avis Bunnage: it looks like it's Robert Vossler

        Things are looking hot for hospital visitor Pat Ryan. The old dear behind him isn't Gertrude Kaye, but it looks like she's borrowed one of Gertie's hats

        Tom is visiting Leslie in the maternity ward even though he didn't do the deed. The visitor in shadow in the middle looks like it's Jack Armstrong

        And if it's Jack (far left in this one), it's very likely it's pillbox hatted Alicia St. Leger on the other side of Tom's head.

        IMDb has Kay Walsh down as playing an uncredited prostitute, but I think it could just be a mistaken sighting for the credited Patricia Phoenix in a blonde wig.

          • "Shadbolt" is one of the better episodes of THE PROTECTORS, well directed by the able John Hough, although much of the tension is lost when the action shifts from an Edinburgh to London train to a quarry:

            Here the ambulance man on the right assisting Tom Bell (11 years older from the above) is Peter Roy, but the on-screen credits are all over the place, as are the locations. Nyree Dawn Porter and Tony Anholt are credited, but don't appear, Stanley Stewart plays the Attendant and Neville Barber the Police Inspector and not the other way round, and although Tony Barwick only gets the screenplay credit and not his usual of script editing his own work while he's at it, David Lane gets his turn of the double whammy by being the Editor and Supervising Editor at the same time. (IMDb gets in on the act by listing Glenda Allen as the uncredited Shadbolt's Girl, but the girl is the credited Georgina Hale.) The location nonsense has Mr. Bell near the centre of Edinburgh, suddenly 15 miles away at the Forth Road Bridge, and then back again in the city centre.

                I was on the lookout for George, but I couldn't spot him.

                • Yes you are right Gerald, not George. Unusual not to find him in a Bryan Forbes film though.

ID:	65295 I always presumed the interior shots (sets) in the Friends UK based episodes were shot in America but apparently not. Here’s Aiden Harrington as a wedding guest at Ross’s ill fated wedding to Emily.

                      • I don't mean to be controversial here but Aiden Harrington's biography on IMDB? Could people read it and get back to me please? Three homes, acting on stage here and in America, voted most promising star of tomorrow etc. I've never heard of this information before. I thought he was just a prolific extra. Comments please.

                        'He was noted for being a method acting and appeared in several well known shows throughout England and America'

                        being a method acting?

                        Comment


                        • Well that is very strange Marcus. I mean no disrespect to the late Aidan and his family, but he was always a crowd player or extra, and I don't think he ever had any credited appearances.
                          There is also no theatrical history on the Theatricalia website.
                          Homes in Blackrock and estates in Surrey and California? home to the worlds richest real estate! He must have had a lot of outside business interests, because the money from being a film extra wouldn't even cover his airfare!
                          It's almost as though The Harrington family were talking about two different people.
                          Maybe a member of his family quietly embellished his CV a little for a laugh.. unless they can convince us otherwise..

                          Comment


                          • Is it possible that it was written by someone pretending to be a family member as a joke? Odd joke if it was as an interest in extras is rather a niche subject. Very odd.
