Welsh actor Philip Madoc dies

Philip Madoc
Now it is news that Philip Madoc has died, after a short illness. Whatever else Philip Madoc did in acting, and it was considerable, his finest hour must have been portrayal the German U-boat officer in Dad's Army. It may not have been top flight drama but it was definitely the best line in British comedy. It showed up the just how marvellous British humour can be, especially English humour, and it is a fitting tribute to him.

He was also fantastic as Lloyd George.
