Maybe best known to non-UKian Who fans as Mr Popplewick in Trial of a Time Lord, and of course played Hyacinth Bucket's ne'er-do-well brother-in-law Onslow in Keeping Up Appearances, but to me (and probably quite a lot of other people on this side of the pond) he'll always be Eddie Yates, binman/Hilda Ogden's lodger in Coronation Street. Which is a bit strange, as Wikipedia tells me I was only five years old when he left said soap, but he'd clearly worked his way into my consciousness by then.

But yes, another one of my pop cultural reference points gone. It seems to be a recurring theme, these past couple of years.

I come to bury Neil Gaiman, not to praise him.

No, no, actually, I do come to praise him a bit, actually...

SPOILERS FOLLOW!! )

EDIT: Looks like Lawrence Miles has in the meantime actually deleted his blog post that I link to in this post, which is something he does sometimes. So that's why the link doesn't work any more.
