    Sometimes the lights all shining on me, other times I can barely see.
    Lately it occurs to me what a long strange trip it’s been.

            So talented. RSC wanted him as child actor aged 12.
            So talented he would sing his TV shows themes.

              You may have seen him unknowingly in Hammer's Scars of Dracula (1970).

              He's definitely best known here for starring in three long-running TV series: The Sweeney in the 1970s alongside John Thaw, Minder in the 1980s with George Cole, and New Tricks in this century.
              Scars of Dracula: Directed by Roy Ward Baker. With Christopher Lee, Dennis Waterman, Jenny Hanley, Christopher Matthews. A young man, Paul Carlson, is on a trip and spends the night at Count Dracula's castle. He is murdered. After some time has passed, the young man's brother Simon comes to the small town where all the traces end to look for him.
