Have your say

Douglas Gorin, known by many locally as the star of Guildhall pantos dating back two decades, recalls his time treading the boards with Dad’s Army star Bill Pertwee.

Douglas appeared alongside Mr Pertwee in Babes in the Wood at Cliffs Pavilion, Southend-on-Sea, in 1978/9. Douglas played the hero Robin Hood, while Mr Pertwee was a bad guy, playing a robber.

In this video, he talks about Mr Pertwee as a fellow thespian.
