The Real England is a concise, direct, and not-so-gentle window into the depths of the leftovers of the world’s once greatest empire. It is told from the perspective of one lone (or not so lone) long term visitor. It informs one of the dregs of the country and helps to explain quaint British oddities such as the crack addicted chav.

So sad, he was not really leading man material but he had a wonderfully attractive character. I enjoyed Dalziel and Pascoe.
No, not a leading man but a leading man in the sense that he was an excellent actor and sometimes, I think, underestimated. Very sad. Far too young.
Oh, my mother loved Dalziel and Pascoe. It’s one of her all time fave shows. How very sad that he died so young.
Far too young.
Sad news indeed. I regret that he was seemingly best known for somewhat average TV shows, when he was a far better actor than these scripts gave him the chance to show. There were many memorable performances where his character often stole the scene. ‘Jewel In The Crown’ sticks in my mind, as well as ‘Sleepers’. He had such an expressive face, and despite often being cast as an East European, he was very English.
He will be sadly missed from our screens, large and small.
Best wishes, Pete.
Spot on, Pete.
I was saddened and shocked to hear of Mr Clarke’s death, especially as he had always looked so robust like a great bull. And, of course, he *was* “leading man material” as his roles in Dalziell and Pascoe, Nice Work, and Moving Story (to name but three) attest; after all, “leading man” does not necessarily have to be a synomyn for matinee idol or romantic lead, just look at Charles Laughton, Stratford Johns, Toby Jones, Gene Hackman et al!
Exactly so, Mr K.
He was in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, too with Alex Guinness.
Indeed, yes. In fact, we downloaded and re-watched Tinker… about eighteen months ago. So many excellent actors in the cast that are no longer around.
Yes he was. I watched it again recently, on BBC re-runs. And some episodes of ‘Callan’ too, if I recall. Best wishes, Pete.
I thought the film was a poor imitation. I remember a friend of mine coming round once when I was half way through the TV series on dvd.She couldn’t understand why I was watching somehtng ‘so boring’ and within five minutes was completely transfixed. We had to watch the whole lot.
What happened to the guy who played Guillem, Michael…Oh, can’t remember his name. I’ll have to go and Google him now!
Michael Jayston. He’s ended up doing more voice work than anything else. When we were still in the UK, he was in Emmerdale!
I’ve not wanted to go near the film, quite frankly.
It was awful It subsituted cheap and nasty violence for creeping dread.
I can just imagine.
