Personal Quote:

[on the death of his comedy hero Rik Mayall] It is a terrible loss, he was a true pioneer and an incredible force. His peers and him were as important to comedy as The Sex Pistols were to music. They shook things up and changed it for the better. For me, The Young Ones (1982) will always be his signature performance. Rick was just a character for the ages. I'm really sad. See more »

Trivia:

Along with Alan Dale, Daphne Ashbrook, Guy Siner, Maurice Roëves, Olaf Pooley, Barrie Ingham, John Franklyn-Robbins, Christopher Neame and Deep Roy, he is one of only ten actors to have speaking roles in both the Doctor Who and Star Trek franchises. He played the Editor in Doctor Who: The Long Game (2005) and Montgomery "Scotty" Scott in Star Trek (2009). He appeared with Roy in the latter. See more »
