Who was that man?
26 August 2004 | by (Newcastle, England) – See all my reviews

I used to love this - time spent watching it was a treat that helped me keep my sanity when my children were tiny and I longed for the sound of a grown-up voice. I loved the scenery, and the sort of close-knit community that probably hasn't ever existed, but is comforting to think of. The story lines were wonderful - mostly real-life "I can relate to that" stuff, with a bit of drama (and sometimes sheer silliness - remember the "Nicki the Russian spy" storyline?) thrown in to stop you getting too complacent! Funnily enough, a couple of friends and I were regretting its demise the other day, and were recalling favourite characters - which brings me to my question. Who was/is the actor who played "Nosey" (Respect the Sabbath) Parker, the world's most up-himself Calvinist vicar - he was brilliant! He's one of those actors you see in loads of stuff, but don't usually associate with any one part. We have been racking out brains. Any offers?
