Arthur Lowe

Arthur Lowe was an actor with a particular adeptness for slightly blustering, comic roles. First seen on stage in 1945, he soon established himself as a reliable theatre actor and appeared across the country. Enjoying a consistent string of guest roles on both television and in film, he became a national star during the 1960s and 70s, first in Coronation Street and his own character's two spin-off sitcoms (Pardon The Expression, Turn Out The Lights), and later in the iconic BBC series Dad's Army.
