When Bernard Cribbins speaks, it is not uncommon to see the faces around him light up. Of course, these might belong to folk in their early middle age who are transported back by that unmistakable, expressive voice to the BBC series The Wombles in the early 1970s, or any one of over a hundred appearances on the oral storytelling series Jackanory.

And he’s still, at the age of 80, entertaining audiences young and old, recently recording audio books for The Wind In The Willows and David Benedictus’ new Winnie The Pooh stories.

But if his voice is recognisable to an older generation, his face will be well known to today’s young audience as that of Donna’s grandfather in the current run of Doctor Who, which culminates in two specials over the festive period.

    Bernard deserves everything he gets. He is a fantastic actor and when I see him on the tele it always brings a huge smile to my face.
