      More sad news for Harry Fielder, who has lost several good friends in recent years. My deepest sympathies to Aitch and the rest of Dudley Sutton's friends and family.

      Of the many performances I've seen, my favourite is his villain in the Thriller episode Kill Two Birds, holding tourists Gabrielle Drake and Susan Hampshire hostage, along with café owner Bob Hoskins. Funny as well as menacing! Two other roles that easily come to mind are the central character in The Human Jungle (a boxer) and a two-part episode of The Baron, as a sadistic American crew member on Reginald Marsh's ship.

      I hope someone has a copy of his Live interview with Des O'Connor and Melanie Sykes they can upload (2004, according to his filmography). He was a great guest and it will bring back a happy memory of this distinctive - and very popular - British actor.

              Sad news. Loved his performance as Stanley Coulter in The Boys particularly his facial expression as the judge dons the black cap and passes sentence.

                Dudley was one of my all time favourite character actors and one of the all time greats of the business.
                Wonderful in The Boys and The Devils and Crossplot.
                Loved him on TV in The Sweeney, The Beiderbecke's and of course as Tinker in Lovejoy.
                RIP

                  R.I.P. Dudley......

                  As well as his excellent acting in 'The Boys', he was also quite a character in 'The Leather boys' (along with Colin Campbell, another passing this year).

                    He did a R4 programme some years ago, possibly based on his stage show, where he said that he was one of Roger Moore's favourite people to beat up in The Saint - evidently much liked and well thought òf as a reliable presence.

                        Just drawing your attention to something in the Guardian obit: Gary Kemp of Spandau Ballet's tweet on the subject.

                        "Spandau Ballet musician and actor Gary Kemp added: “Farewell Dudley Sutton. One of our greats and a charming man. Another one of Joan Littlewood’s brood of amazing actors leaves us.”"

                        Nice, and unexpected.

                          Sorry to read this. Another great actor. He was brilliant in George and Mildred The Movie as the lead biker.

                            Did he play a Ted in that episode of Minder where there was an Elvis impersonator used to make some 'demos' that they were auctioning for big money? Or has my memory mixed him up with another actor? The IMDB doesn't mention Minder.
