In his career he has played numerous roles, in radio and TV, and is frequently cast as nice but essentially ineffectual characters. His filmography includes appearances in mostly comedy shows, such as Spitting Image, Who Dares Wins, KYTV, My Dad's the Prime Minister, Nighty Night, My Family and Benidorm.
He also played Michael Wenton Weakes in series one and Nobby the Pawnbroker in series two of Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency on BBC Radio 4, adapted from two of Douglas Adams' other books (Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency and The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul). This radio series also starred Stephen Moore and Peter Davison (who also appeared in the Hitchhiker's TV series), and was directed by Dirk Maggs who was chosen by Adams to produce the Tertiary, Quandary and Quintessential phases of the radio series.
