In Prisoner was Ted Douglas and Pixie Mason's father - also made an uncredited appearance in one scene of the final episode as a policeman - by the time you had noticed he was there, the policeman turned into someone else for the next shot. Also was script editor throughout. Did a Lazarus-type return from the dead as Harold Bishop in Neighbours (Then again, perhaps we dreamed it all ....). In the film Body Melt played the evil Dr Carrera whose drug trials killed lots and lots of unwitting (and a few witting) people - great comedy role that ...
