Anyway, The Saint was on.
I've never really watched the series despite Roger Moore being my favourite James Bond. Just by viewing it, you can see a bit, nay - a lot, of Bond in Moore's Simon Templar.
But that isn't why I am writing about The Saint this morning.
I caught a minute or two of another actor in the episode that was airing. The top of his head was bald with grey hair around it. When he spoke, I recognised who he was.
It was the actor who played Mr Griffiths - the caretaker in Grange Hill during the period I liked the series the best - the 1980s.
I was quite surprised at his head. That episode of The Saint must have been made plenty of years before Grange Hill so he had the aged look - that he had playing the old caretaker - early in his life.
A look at IMDB points to 1969 being the year that the episode was made. George A Cooper began working as Mr Griffiths sixteen years later.
Cooper passed away, at the age of 93, in November of 2018.
