Sad coincidence: Philip Madoc RIP

Quite unrelatedly, I was listening to Stan Tracey’s version of “Under Milk Wood” only this morning, thanks to punctum’s Pink Floyd essay: of course the narrator is Merthyr Tydfil-born Madoc, doing all Dylan Thomas’s voices (as he no doubt had many other times). Also a Doctor Who stalwart: just one of those fixtures, really. Only 77.

(<-- He's not on this one, I don't think: but I spent long hours as a kid poring over the cover as I listened to my parents' copy, so I can't help the association.)

    He was also the U-Boat captain in the famous “Don’t tell him Pike” episode of Dad’s Army
