Oh that is sad news, he was a nice chap, once we went at lunchtime to the white horse and he noticed we were fans,so he dug out some video he had taken while they were filming at the pub, several years later I was wandering though Huddersfield market, and low and behold he was running a market stall, he had moved on from the pub as his wife had been ill and she found the hours were to much for her, we had a long chat and he dug out some pictures he had from filming and let me have them

One of the unsung but vital members of the cast per say. Although unaccredited he is fondly remembered by fans of the show for the scenes in the iconic White Horse pub . I think he grabbed his fifteen minutes of fame with two hands and clearly from the personal experiences of Terry and HJ was a very likeable and personable gent . Another link to the show sadly passes away .

Sad news. I always liked the idea that they let him play himself on the show.

One of the things I like to do is try and figure out which pub scenes are studio and which were actual location filming. In the later years it’s often hard to tell.

My apologies for the oversight, I am not one for checking the closing titles when shows are broadcast and assumed he would not have been named in the cast list but clearly he was .
I didn't mean it as a criticism, but just thought you'd like to know he was recognized. I only found out when someone asked me the name of the episode where Billy Hardcastle shot the arrow into the electric box.

I know there was no criticism , me2 , I was pleased that you clarified the information . I just felt it was appropriate to apologise for my error given the context of the Thread .
