British actor Geoffrey Bayldon has died at the age of 93, his agency has confirmed.

He was best known for playing the lead role in TV series Catweazle, and the Crowman in Worzel Gummidge.

The actor’s film credits include To Sir With Love and The Pink Panther Strikes Again, as well as big-screen versions of Porridge and Steptoe and Son.

He famously turned down the lead role in Doctor Who twice, but did eventually make an appearance on the show in 1979.

Bayldon was born in Leeds on 7 January 1924.

After studying at the Hull College of Architecture, he began acting and trained at the Old Vic Theatre School.

He went on to star in a whole host of films and TV shows – including playing Q in 1967’s Casino Royale, which was loosely based on Ian Fleming’s first James Bond novel.

But it was his roles in Catweazle, which ran for two years from 1970, and Worzel Gummidge, which ran from 1979-81, that were his most famous.

Bayldon also made appearances in TV series including Z-Cars, The Avengers and The Tomorrow People and, more recently, Heartbeat, Casualty and My Family.

Cafcass Asked Me If I Had Any Ideas. Here Is My 16 Page Response!

Peace Not Pas

Over the last month I have been relentlessly hassling Cafcass (The Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service) in an attempt to get them to safeguard my children from their mother’s ongoing emotional abuse. At time of writing, I have now not seen my children for almost 11 months. This is due to their mother denying me contact and alienating my children against me and my family following or separation last year. For a detailed explanation of parental alienation click here.

A couple of days ago a member of management from Cafcass telephoned me to discuss my concerns about their lack of effective protection of my three children.

I asked him numerous questions such as “what are you planning to do to protect my children?” Most of the questions he was unable to answer. However he rather surprisingly agreed with me that the current system in place for…

Barnförhör i barnahus

Avskilda barn - Secluded children

2017-05-11 Lena Hellblom Sjögren

I Dokument inifrån, SR den 10 maj 2017 visades att två bröder 5 och 7 år gamla, förhördes av uniformsklädd polis som pressade pojkarna, vilka senare utpekades som skyldiga för att ha dödat Kevin 4 år. I nyhetsinslagen som följde har talats om hur mycket bättre det blivit sedan dessa förhör hölls år 1998. Nu är det civilkädda specialutbildade förhörsledare som fått lära sig om traumatiserade barn. De förhör barnen i mysiga miljöer på barnahus och ställer aldrig ledande frågor eller pressar barnen med suggererande frågor, fick vi lyssnare höra.

Detta stämmer inte alls överens med de förhör jag granskat som psykologisk sakkunnigutredare. Här ska ett aktuellt exempel ges genom ett utdrag med ett förhör av en 13-årig flicka, ett förhör som gjordes på ett barnahus med en polis som anses speciellt duktig på att förhöra barn. Namnet på flickan har bytts ut. Pappan troddes ha…
