  • Syd Walker was a favourite of my (late) father, who liked to repeat a (rather naughty) yarn of Syd's involving a small child wetting a bed and of course ending with a "what would you do chums?".

    • There are many holes in one in "A Hole in One", the penultimate episode of TILL DEATH US DO PART. I think the rather drunk Alf and Bert had much to do with that. In the clubhouse:

      Here they are getting sloshed on the free champagne with Hugh Elton joining in. The barman is Philip Gilbert, who plays Jim and not a golfer as shown on IMDb

      More excitement for Lewis Alexander to bristle his moustache at as Pat Gorman gets an extravagant couple of lines to shout, almost as loud as his sweater. The two other golfers at the bar are Ballard Berkeley and Peter Welch.

        Looks very like a still sprightly Wallace Bosco (centre). Waiting at the door is a pouting Cedric Hardwicke.

        • All our regulars must've been feeling healthy when they made White Corridors at Pinewood in 1951, so there are no new sightings to be reported and in fact only one in the medical staff:

          Naomi Chance as a nurse more interested in doing the tidying up than the health of one of the doctors . . . though it is boring old James Donald, I suppose.

            Now carefree, Jessie warbles "I'm Looking for You" and looks and finds Cot D'Ordan.

            A still from the film shows George Zucco at the party, but he doesn't appear in the film. And the listing of David Niven in the film I can't verify as there was no apparent sight of him, although one gentleman with wavy hair looks like him from the back, but not from the front!

              Do you mean that he isn't in the credits? He's listed as (uncedited) on the IMDb

              And the listing of David Niven in the film I can't verify as there was no apparent sight of him, although one gentleman with wavy hair looks like him from the back, but not from the front!
              David is only listed on the IMDb as "bit player (uncredited)" so he won't be expected to be in it much, he might be fairly heavily disguised. His first few roles in American films (according to his autobiography) were playing people like Mexican bandits. But he should be recognisable in the film as first released to be listed on the IMDb.

              This was his first film role (according to the IMDb) so I wouldn't expect much of an appearance, but he should be recognisable to be listed. Maybe his part was cut before the film was released?

              If you're sure that the version that you saw was the version as it was first shown (not cut) and that you're sure that he wasn't in it then you can request that he be revoved from the IMDb listing

              • Congratulations on that early sighting of Naomi Chance, Gerald. White Corridors was a "Viewers' Choice" film on BBC1 about 30 years ago. The channel would ask its daytime audience to select the film they'd most like to see out of the four (?) recommendations. A young Eamonn Holmes was one of the presenters who'd introduce the winner, while eating from a bag of popcorn on at least one occasion.

                More 'Gideon's Way' identifications?

                Credit to Movie Dude for all the images. The first shows Dorothy Frere in Upstairs
                Downstairs
                - The New Man, which I think is a good match for Unnamed Extra #19
                in the episode The Wall. She's the woman who steals a baby from outside a shop ...



                I'm convinced the secretary in Fall High, Fall Hard, right, is Rosemary Dorken.
                Comparison with her role in Ghost Squad - The Man with the Delicate Hands:


                Very distinctive actress. I don't know how we missed her. Rosemary did have uncredited parts in the 1963 films The V.I.P.s and The Haunting but would have been a familiar face on TV from Emergency Ward 10. I have some of her episodes on DVD. Like the previously-sighted Michael Graham Cox, she was a guest in Undermind around the time they appeared in Gideon's Way.

                • Thanks, cornershop. I remember something similar for television programmes in the 60s called STAR CHOICE, where the stars of a series picked their "favourite" episode for Sunday afternoon viewing (in other words, the excuse for a repeat). One I recall was Peter Cushing picking "The Dancing Men" from his SIR ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE'S SHERLOCK HOLMES series. The BBC used the opportunity to show a properly-edited version as the one they had run on its original airing had at least two sequences where the Temporary Fault card had to quickly come up as the AFM had come into shot and said "hold it there . . .", etc.

                  Not quite the pride of the BBC, but holding it there for The Pride of the Force in 1933:

                      Out in the hotel lobby, the shadow just missing his cue as he descends the stairs is Ned Lynch (he's in the earlier dancing scene with Jack Armstrong too) and the doorman is Arthur Mullard, remarkably not on the IMDb uncredited list. Bill Fraser is, as an alleged railway porter, but the character is not played by Bill at all

                      That's all in a Blackpool hotel. In the Premier Hotel (sic), London, the receptionist may be a very young Moray Watson.

                        Also fairly startling is the youthfulness of Blackpool bobby John Adams.

                          The exciting () climax is severely compromised by the darkness of the scenes, but I've tried to lighten this police car shot; we can hardly make out Inspector Andrew Cruikshank (sic), but it's Richard Bird dozing and John Wilder on the wireless (right)

                          Managing to get into the key light is this onlooker. Good move as it appears to be a very young Harry Van Engel.

                          In addition, in a theatre scene, the Lon Chaney, Jr. lookalike turns up as a stagehand and it sounds like the voice of E. V. H. Emmett coming from a radio in a scene in a café operated by Andreas Malandrinos.

                                The stitching leads to Court No. 1 where Judge Frederick Kelsey isn't taking the case. Frederick gets a line to say and then turns up moments later as a gowned lawyer in Court No. 3.
