Personal Quote:

The BBC is meant to represent values - honesty, decency, values - ITV is not. Why should they compete? ITV does that stinking, sodding Coronation Street (1960) until you get brained out. Then the BBC comes out with that stinky, slobbing, clichéd, mindless, moronic EastEnders (1985). See more »


Deported from the USA due to a "deficiency in his documentation". Berkoff violated visa regulations in 1997 by staying one day longer than he was supposed to. See more »
