...or Grouty.

I've just had a squint at his filmography on IMDB. Long, really long. He was only in four episodes of Porridge, and according to a report I read on the BBC website was a bit naffed off annoyed about only being known for being Grouty.

I've seen him in lots of things and he's been great in them all.  I always think first of him as Tulkinghorn in Bleak House.

There's me as well, and I remember when Tony Steedman took over.

I remember him in other stuff as well, but forever cemented in my mind as Grouty.

No. He was brilliant. That Christmas crib scene was a classic.

And of course Winston the Ogre in 'Time Bandits'.  I have unsuccessfully been trying to master the way he says "bloody prawns" for decades.

He must have done 'The Sweeney'. Surely. He did malice very well.

Looking at his Wiki entry,I was reminded of a TV series called "The Gold Robbers,in which Vaughan played a detective. I can remember watching that on black and white TV. Now feeling quite old.
