As a hefty admirer of Richard Long - not for his versatility, heaven knows - but rather for his extremely likable personality = he seemed to be a very cordial man in real life.
I thought he was brilliant in "Nanny and the Professor" as well but he pretty much went from 1878-1970: his personality was that of a sincerely kind man - or he was a far better actor than i assumed! Anyway, without giving out spoilers, Jarrod has been temporarily blinded in a nasty (foul play) explosion in his office.
Long gives a well-modulated performance and he's excellent.
I remember as a boy asking my mom just why Victoria was so mean to Jarrod "You've lived in this house all your life" - in reference to his getting around without sight "Because self-pity is a very bad thing" was mom's wise answer.
