The Last of the Baskets: Well Done, Good and Faithful Servant (S1EP2 ITV Mon 17 May 1971, George Waring)



In Well Done, Good and Faithful Servant, Bodkin has a hard time persuading Clifford Basket, the new Earl of Clogborough, to accept his new lot in life.

George Waring, who plays Mr Foster in this episode, was another of those reliable hard working character actors who popped up in most popular TV shows from the early 1960’s onward. He did score a few prominent roles but was mostly a guest artiste.
