Poor old Ralph, he needed his old mates George and Sid Rouse to help him out with these carol singers!
Tide was nearly full. Mist lay in a grey scarf along the line of the cliffs. .. and they walked home hand in hand through the slanting shadows of the new darkness.
Someone has mentioned on another thread that Ralph Bates played a very different character in a comedy series called Dear JOhn. Although i never watched this regularly i remember his character well and was surprised just how much of a contrast the part was from George Warleggen, a talented actor indeed and a great loss.
Poor guy! He's dead already (cancer). He was in the 6 Wives of Henry VIII, playing Catherine Howard's lover.
