    Re: Brit movie/tv quiz.

    That was definitely my favourite of the Ripping Yarns series.

    Name the BBC series that featured an Edwardian adventurer, who was frozen and emerged in the London of the swinging sixties. Also, can you name the actor who played the main character. For a bonus, the actor went on to star in a very popular and long-running ITV series several years later--can you also name that one?

    Correct! He played Grayson, the school bully, in Tomkinson's Schooldays

    Correct, well done. Both series were very witty and I remember watching and enjoying them.

    The two sitcoms had almost the same titles. At the start of each episode the two leads would sit before an audience and talk about the early days of their relationship, and that would transition into the sitcom proper.

    Ok, Lisa Goddard starred in a sitcom that was a follow-up to one that had John Alderton and Pauline Collins as the leads. Can you name both sitcoms?

    Now, I know this one as that film was on TV not too long ago, and I was surprised to see that the guy who played Albert Tatlock was in it, Jack Howarth was the actor's name.

    Staying with Coronation Street, which long-serving Street actor got a thumping from Michael Caine in Get Carter? Just to be clear, the actor is now deceased and I believe was in Get Carter before joining the Street.
