Bright’s Boffin’s: Ejected! (S3EP1 ITV Mon 3 Jan 1972, Johnny Briggs, Aubrey Woods)



Whitney Houston & Bobbi Kristina

In season three opener Ejected! Bertram Bright and his crew are once more looking for pastures new having been thrown out of their old headquarters. Bright decides they should buy a car thinking that it will make their search easier. The only problem is Bright isn’t quite the driver he believes himself to be.

Each season of the series saw the gang having to move, it does of course enable them to keep their adventures fresh.

Johnny Briggs, who plays Tippy, notched up seven appearances on the show, he is course best known for his very long running role as Mike Baldin in Coronation Street. Aubrey Woods, here playing an auctioneer, appears six times through the series run – in a different role each time. He’s another of those well known faces familiar to genre fans for roles in shows such as Doctor Who and Blake’s 7.
