Hi,
I was wondering if anyone knew more about actress Barbara Roscoe, who played the receptionist in "The Murder Market"? It seems that she did some film/tv work possibly, before her appearance, but I'm not sure what all she did.
Thanks Smile

Many thanks - yes, I did in fact have a glance at her credentials (seems like there ought to be a good Steed line there.. Very Happy ) and wondered why her acting seemed to stop with The Avengers. Ebay has a photo or two of her from time to time, suggesting that she possibly modelled at one time.

the show, along with other UK productions, used a slew of different actors, etc..

many has guested on secret agent man, avengers, etc..sorta neat to see all of them popping up on other shows, from time to time...

Remember, acting doesn't end with TV and film.

That's the thing I hate about IMDb--there's absolutely no listings for stage productions. You end up with all these holes in people's careers, especially British actors, who spend more time on stage on average than Americans. Confused

True, but it is a movie database. I suppose we should be grateful TV is included (athough there can be a fine line between the two). Perhaps there should be a big overhaul with a name change.

..and radio! Many actors spend 90% of their broadcasting career in British radio plays and series. And it has spawned/nurtured some big productions and bigger writers... anyone heard of a chap called Douglas Adams?

True, but they transcended the "movie" bit a long time ago--they list talk show appearances and documentary extras. I think theatre would be the next logical step.

Definitely. There's something galling about the fact that when you look up Simon Jones he only gets a credit as Arthur for the TV series (which I adore, but still). That means nada for Susan Sheridan and Geoffrey McGivern have no H2G2 credit at all. That can't be right. Confused

(In a side note, I spent last night trying to figure out why I recognised the voice of the head lizard man on Doctor Who last night. Bothered me the whole time. Then I saw the credits and there was Stephen Moore. He's everywhere! Very Happy )

I wonder if there's a search page, something like IMDB, that would cater to and list say, stage productions, etc...

You'd think someone would have put one together, wouldn't you? Some theatres list all their stage productions and information on their sites, but you sort of need to know what to look for first, which makes finding new stuff difficult.

Yes, it seems like a theatre search would be a viable feature of a larger site, such as IMDB. Perhaps the film industry feels threatened?

I did find that she was in a movie entitled "School for Scoundrels," which sounds like a good Avengers episode title. Very Happy
Here's a magazine appearance that was on ebay recently (albeit, here she is a brunette).
The description said that this publication is from October 1960:

I have School For Scoundrels on DVD - a double bill with the very wonderful The Green Man - it does sound like the Avengers episode School For Traitors, you're right.

This link may help- http://www.theatredb.com/ and there's also http://www.ibdb.com/index.php. The latter is a Broadway data base.

There's also this:

(Avengers stalwart Christopher Benjamin, proving how, uh, sparse the database actually is).

I'm sure there used to be another one that had amazing data - it's where I found the only decent photo of Emma Thompson's father I've ever seen.
