Blundell played Banks in both the banned 1977BBC version and the cinematic remake of the production two years later. His character was the 'daddy' (i.e., the self-appointed head inmate via use of force, violence and intimidation) of the institution until he was overthrown in a bloody attack by Carlin, the lead character played by Ray Winstone. He also appeared in Quadrophenia as a Rocker(again in a film with Ray Winstone).
Afterwards, Blundell appeared sporadically on television, featuring in shows such as Just Good Friends, Juliet Bravo and Girls on Top but spent a longer period in the theatre. He had a small role, again with Winstone in the lead, in Nil by Mouth in 1997.
