435: Remembering William Russell – The Adventures of Sir Lancelot Commentary

Remembering William Russell - The Adventures of Sir Lancelot Commentary

Esteemed British actor William Russell sadly passed away on June 4th, 2024, at the age of 99. An actor with a career spanning 73 years, his final screen appearance was, of course, in a 2022 Doctor Who episode, The Power of the Doctor.

Over the years, Russell (who also acted under the name Russell Enoch) accumulated a remarkable 109 screen and audio credits (based on an IMDb figure which we suspect is incomplete) dating back to 1949.

In this podcast, we take a look at Russell’s most famous role before Doctor Who. 30 episodes of The Adventures of Sir Lancelot were recorded, a show that was a hit on both sides of the Atlantic. Such a hit, in fact, that some episodes were recorded in colour, way back in 1956!

So, join Christian Cawley and James McLean as they watch, and talk over, episode 1 of The Adventures of Sir Lancelot.
