SPOILER ALERT........Ooops too late Whistling nnocently

Nope, I give up.

I have searched and searched to try and find out who the man is standing at the back next to Hugh Paddick in the photo in the Quiz 22 Question 7 photo.

He's clearly not Bill Pertwee or Douglas Smith

Couldn't be the young Ron Moody, could it?
He was in the pilot, apparently...

In the two minutes I took to find the photo and come back to this page I find I've been usurped! Yes, it's Ron Moody. He was replaced by Bill Pertwee after the first series as he had theatre commitments.

So it is! Not obvious though to me and would never have got that - and there was me thinking I was good at spotting early UK comedy talent. Thank you Lazzard.

Well it was a matter of deduction really.
Took a list of all the cast members and (after a detour through the Frazer Haynes Four and various producers!!) found the only one unaccounted for was Mr. Moody.
