.. and even made an album with Eric Sykes in 1962.
We remember her as Madam Rosa in the Catweazle episode' The eye of time' which was originally broadcast on the 15th March 1970.
I quite agree, she was fantastic in it. Geoffrey adored her. He remembered that he felt so sorry for her during the filming because she was very uncomfortable due to her size by then and perspiring profusely, but it didn't have any effect on her scenes or her acting abilities She was lovely and I would have loved to have met her myself.
