Cribbins’ Classics

I think we’re all pretty much agreed on the fact that your can’t beat a bit of Bernard Cribbins; although I think any decision on badly-researched hacks can wait.

Former Doctor Who stars David Tennant and Bernard CribbinsRecently the Cribster was at the first night of The Railway Children at Waterloo station (no, really) and was asked by the press what made his list if credits so memorable.

His answer? Without hesitation, Bernard Cribbins replied:

“Because I was in them.”

With typical deadpan timing, Cribbins was nevertheless on the nail. Of course he’s a find actor but he has also been extremely wise with his choice of work, from The Railway Children of course through to the classic episode of Fawlty Towers (“The Hotel Inspector”) to the recent (not “classic”, Tim Walker) appearances in Doctor Who as Donna Noble’s granddad, Wilf Mott, most notably in the David Tennant era finale, The End of Time.
