Doctor Who - Rings of Akhaten Eleven


...to explain to Sarah who Philip Madoc is (because he's the star of some BBC radio adaptations of the Cadfael mysteries in which I thought she might be interested. Her iTunes recently went up the stuff, losing her copies of the unabridged Cadfael audiobooks read by Stephen "Omega" Thorne, and she is seeking replacements. One of them - the unabridged Thorne one, not the Madoc adapt, is available on Amazon, for the price of about £72:00. Yeah. Right. We're full of those tricks. Anyway, I digress).

Because she's a Doctor Who fan, the first thing I suggested was, "well, he was Mehendri Solon in The Brain of Morbius."

<blank look>

...*thinks*..."Well, you know that episode of Dad's Army? 'You, vot is you name?' 'Don't tell 'im, Pike.'..?"

<recognition> "Oh, he was the German in that?!"

I mean, it's probably a bit telling that I couldn't immediately think of much that he'd done, but OTOH, is the man's legacy reduced to that one line in an episode of Dad's Army..?
