    One of the few actors who almost became a children's TV presenter as "Mr Derek" to Basil Brush of course - and of course, Heartbeat and the "somewhere in between sitcom and satire" Yes Minister.

    Was he the puppeteer of Basil Brush though? (the same for Rodney Bewes and Roy North) - I thought that job would have gone to someone under the desk operating the puppet.
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

    Hearing about derek passing away as a shockindeed

    I loved Basil Brush and Derek's voice-over's - that era was along with the Wombles .... the "Cream of British Kids TV" I think/believe

    RIP Derek Foulds
