I was just listening to him last night on the BBC iPlayer.
He narrated How To Be Sherlock Holmes.
Good memories for those of a certain age. Top Gear did an affectionate tribute to those 70's shows, like Department S and The Persuaders.
I've only watched the start but I think Mindhorn may have been influenced by the same, maybe more 80's.
The best of those raffish, e-type driving, probably massively un PC nowadays 70's types. Shame he wasn't on screen more often.
Most of my record collection would be considered ‘strange’ by most
I’ll give it a listen. I wonder if it beats the William Shatner album
Don't know about the Bill Shatner album, Herlock, but I've heard Leonard Nimoy on LP, and it's a trip!
Afraid I know little about Mr. Wyngarde, but I've seen "Department S" discussed on a board for fans of espionage fiction and drama. It was apparently well-known in its day, though the still posted above is a bit alarming. Will need to check the "Doctor Who" wiki to see which episodes Wyngarde appeared in.
