Personal Quote:

[on John Thaw] He has an extraordinary range. He still looks the same of course: that distinguished, grey unflorid approach. But the character is very different. He works from a brilliant but subtle palette of colours.

Trivia:

He was awarded the OBE (Officer of the Order of the British Empire) in the 2000 Queen's New Years Honors List for his services to drama. See more »
