Was Gupta played by an Indian actor or was he a white bloke who'd raided Alec Guiness's shine box?

The actor who played Gupte, Derrick Branche, was fantastic as Father Hernandez in Father Ted.

In regard to this thread, I recall seeing this exchange on the mighty IMDB about Mr Bewes' life now: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0079815/board/thread/43217889

Oh, but I *like* it.

Anyway, if one say, watches or discovers an old show via cable or DVD, why does that mean that one's comments are no longer valid?
