    For generations of kids in the UK Bernard Cribbins was beloved. He WAS the Wombles! His role in The Railway Children is iconic are his novelty chart hits including "Right Said Fred". He is about the only UK TV personality of that era who didn't end up in prison for kiddie fiddling

    Chris DeVoe 3 months since last false death report!

    I was looking through his IMDb credits, which are considerable, and I have to confess, despite all the films I've seen, I don't recall him in anything other than Doctor Who and Fawlty Towers.

    He did make a big impression on me as Donna's grandfather, Wilford Mott.

    I definitely have to search out The Railway Children.

    That Fawlty Towers episode with Cribbins was hysterical! That was when he hit my radar.

    I almost associate him with Marty Feldman or Syd James, though they were of an earlier generation of Brit memories. RIP

    I'm a little confused. I thought someone named Alexi Sayles was involved?
