Obituary: Donald Sinden

Renowned for his rich, booming voice and commanding presence, Sir Donald Sinden, who has died aged 90 after a long illness, was a star of stage, television and radio for seven decades.

BBC News, 12th September 2014

Never The Twain ran for ten years on ITV. Ten years! Donald Sinden and Windsor Davies were two rival antique dealers, continually trying to get the better of each other. A sample of the writing? "I started at the bottom, you need brains there." The punchline? "Well, your brains are in your bottom." This drivel ended in 1991.
