Span of career[edit]

So which is it. Did he make his debut in the mid '50s or has his career spanned over half a century? (talk) 04:44, 4 March 2012 (UTC)

Doctor Who appearance[edit]

In case anyone thinks it's worth mentioning in the article, there's news that Bernard Cribbins will be in the next season of Doctor Who. --Mark H Wilkinson (t, c) 15:09, 27 August 2007 (UTC)

Bernard Cribbins is in "The Adventures of Picasso" (1978) swedish film. right? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:11, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

That's correct. The Swedish name of the film is "Picassos äventyr" and can be found under Bernard's entry at IMDB. Any idea whether he was speaking English or Swedish? He was also in a film which was in French and English (Allez France!) although I don't know which he spoke in that film. If he was speaking a foreign (to him) language in those movies, that could be a point worth including. Opinions, others?

I remember seeing him in a fim in which he played a policeman. It was a drama and he was very good in it. He was investigating a murder that happenned a long time ago and discovered the murderer was the man who was now his boss in the police. Can anybody remember the name of the films, its not on any cv or database i've seen for him. A Quinlan82.42.121.120 (talk) 10:48, 7 April 2011 (UTC)

You might be referring to "Dangerous Davies: The Last Detective." I haven't seen it so I can't say for certain but the information at IMDB suggests it could be.
I'm not certain whether you raise that question in relation to improving the article. If not, just a "heads up." Talk pages are basically more a place for editor-discussions than chat about the content. If what I wrote is confusing, try the guidelines here: Guidelines  :-)

Doctor Who media hat-trick[edit]

Cribbins is to my mind the only actor to have appeared in Doctor Who in all three licensed media of TV (Wilf Mott, throughout 10th Doctor era), film (Tom Campbell, Dalek Invasion Earth 2150AD) and radio (Arnold Korns, The Horror Of Glam Rock, BBC Radio 7). If true, this is a highly notable record. Has this been remarked upon anywhere else that we can cite, please? Andrew Oakley (talk) 16:42, 1 February 2011 (UTC)

Links leading nowhere[edit]

There are a number of links leading to non-existent articles. Would it be worth changing these back to text only? Most of them are in the second Television section. In the case of "The Further Adventures of Noddy", it would be possible to redirect it to a section on the Noddy page where it's listed: Noddy Entry

Also, I made a minor edit a few minutes ago but overlooked the "Explain" box. I don't know if the history can somehow be edited but figure I'll leave that be, since I'm not sure how. The edit was simply correcting a typo on the second Television entry "The Good Old Days" where the 's' had been left off the end of 'Days' and the link was therefore pointing nowhere instead of to the correct page. Mathsgirl (talk) 07:10, 2 July 2011 (UTC)

Rearranging entire entry may be a good idea.[edit]

If you look at the contents, you'll notice that section 1 is about his early life and sections 2, 6 and 7 are about his career. They are divided by sections covering specific aspects of his career. Also there are two sections headed "Films" (3 and 11) and two sections headed "Television" (5 and 10). Perhaps they should be merged to form two sections instead of the four. I'm still getting the hang of the policies here and how to edit correctly so I'll leave it for more experienced editors to make those decisions and carry out any action decided upon.

Music Charts[edit]

One section says his record "hole in the ground" was #1. The later section says #9. Which is it? --Quatermass (talk) 22:18, 11 May 2012 (UTC)

New photos[edit]

I've uploaded the rest of the photos of Cribbins from the filming of Old Jack's Boat last year. Thought they might be useful for the article. commons:Category:Old Jack's Boat. -mattbuck (Talk) 09:59, 30 April 2013 (UTC)

Television appearances[edit]

I'm sitting here watching Midsomer murders and Bernard cribbins is in it. It's the later version,not the version with john nettles[1]

He played a character called Duggie Wingate and the episode was made in 2013 — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:01, 5 February 2014 (UTC)
