Wilfred was the real hero.

Father figure to a walking god; able to cut through all the bull and get down to what's truly important.

He didn't need any gizmos or powers to do the right thing. He'd just rally the community watch group, swing by the corner for some Ensures, and get to work stopping the aliens and saving the Doctor.

*SO* glad to see Wilf again!  He really is beloved!

I always thought the idea, in his mind, that he was responsible for the Tenth Doctor's passing must have weighed heavily on him.  He was - is - a good man.

Seen him (Bernard Cribbins) in a lot of things - 'Vincent Mountjoy' in 'The Mouse on the Moon', 'Captain Jack Tars' the "taxi driver" in the David Niven 'Casino Royale', 'Tom Campbell' in 'Daleks: Invasion Earth 2150 AD', various parts in the Steed/Peel 'The Avengers', the 'Carry On' films, 'Fawlty Towers', 'Space: 1999', 'Last of the Summer Wine', and more.

I've said it before, I'll keep saying it - ONE SCENE needs to happen: Wilf realises that he had some memories erased of being a policeman in the 60s, hopping into a police box one evening, and being carried off to fight aliens.

Yep.  He was always keenly aware that he was in the presence of entities that far outstripped us, and yet he never let that rob him of his human dignity.

A living example of the British striving to 'Keep Your End Up'.

Tom Campbell?  (And yes, you are right.)

Cribbins was also the voice of Arnold Korns in 'Horror of Glam Rock', an episode of the TV Series "Doctor Who: The Eighth Doctor Adventures" (??!?)

... And now I have some research to do...

Ah.  It's an audio play from Big Finish productions.  IMDB had got it wrong.

But take a look at that cast list ...

That is part of the Lucy Miller adventures, among the best audio dramas Big Finish has produced, and the definitive (in my mind) 8th Doctor revival series.

Really loved hating his obnoxious character in Fawlty Towers.  He was so lovable as Wilf!
