Other roles you think Paul would've been good at
Magic Toenail
There was once an anime Yoroiden Samurai Troopers known as Ronin Warriors in the English dub, which die hard B7 fans might want to check out. The voice of Anubis was played by an English voice actor Paul Dobson, and he did a pretty good Paul Darrow impersonation. Anubis was a bad guy turned good guy-very common in Japanese anime. Ever since then I thought that Paaul would make a good Samurai

Speaking of anime, I think Paul would make a good Inspector Zenigata (from the Lupin the 3rd anime series/movies).

Hmmm...I never read the Discworld series.

Is the character any good?


We were lucky. A British friend of ours got us into the Discworld series years ago and we have read every one of Terry Pratchett's books now. We happen to love Pratchett and his intelligent but very funny portrayal of the beings of the Discworld and Ankh-Morpork. If you happen to read Guards! Guards!, I challenge you not to hear Paul Darrow's voice. You actually may be able to look up Paul's performance a number of years ago in clips on YouTube. He's wonderful at sly comedy.

Here's another big fan of Pratchett! The Discworld books were and still are a common trading item amongst geeky students.
Here's Paul Darrow in Guards Guards:

I wish I had seen this theatre production...
But as a fan of both Pratchett and Mr Darrow I like to collect data.
For those amongst you who are interested, here is an excerpt from the L-space Prachett Fandom, an interview with Paul by Karen Kruzycka,
Terry Pratchett's Guard! Guards! Spring Tour 1998.
As the first performance drew near, I managed to catch up with Paul Darrow during rehearsals and have a quick chat with him. He was as charming as I'd hoped. "Rehearsals are going very well," he told me. "In fact, we're even ahead of schedule. This afternoon we're running through the whole of Act One for the very first time - it should be interesting."

I asked Paul what he likes about Sam Vimes. "He's laid-back and very centred," he said. "He's amiable, but tough. Something like an Eastwood or a Bogart character - he's seen life, and it holds no surprises for him any more. I admire his coolness and his truthfulness." And Vimes' bad points? "Well, of course, he drinks too much."
I wondered what Paul thinks of Terry's writing. "I like Terry's use of filmic references - he's obviously a big fan of the cinema. We're probably of similar ages, so I know exactly what he's talking about. His work is very different from other writers' - and, of course, it's a fantastic success."
Paul told me about the other projects he'd been working on recently. "I've worked on a couple of CDROM games in recent months. One is War of the Worlds, in which I play the Martian General. The other is Queen: The Eye - I actually wrote the novelisation of this game." Paul also featured in a brand new Blake's 7 radio production, which was broadcast not long ago.
Before the battery on Paul's mobile phone died completely, I enquired whether he was looking forward to the tour. "So far I'm enjoying it," he said, "otherwise I wouldn't do it at all. It's a funny part, and Vimes has some really good lines. The tour will be visiting many nice places with lovely theatres. I am sure it'll be a great success."

PC I am as green with envy as you are purple in the picture! Wow. How lucky were you and what a cool photograph.

Roles for Paul Darrow - padded up he'd actually make a good Falstaff I reckon - cynical, opportunistic, sly, excellent company, hint of pathos, eye for the ladies.

He'd be a good M in James Bond movies.

Did you hear his Lord Ratten in the Minister of Chance? A very Masteresque performance and very good.

He'd be good in House of Cards as Francis Urquart. And there must be several roles for him in Game of Thrones.

Has Paul ever done comedy? I'd like to see him appear in a show like The Big Bang Theory. Smile

He played The Sheriff of Nottingham in a Christmas Panto opposite Jason Connery as Robin Hood.

I saw him in the play Don't Start Without Me back in the 80's and if I recall, this is the play where he danced around the stage with a huge sombrero on!
Watch the Adventure game on Youtube...as he ends up crying 'Help!'
Cold.....you don't know the meaning of cold.
Cold is when you have ice on the INSIDE of the window!!!

Cassius in Julius Caesar, he has a lean and hungry look...Iago in Othello....I bleed, my lord...

It's just come to me - Paul would have made a good Shredder (or Splinter) in a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie.

Yes a lot. The Strangerers. Toast. Some children's programmes. Guards Guards. Haggard.

He'd make an excellent older Flashman if they ever film the series and would have been brilliant in the role in his younger days.

Yes! I love Flashman, and can so picture Paul in the role!
