Recently released back into the community after two years treading the West End boards in the Olivier Award-winning comedy The 39 Steps Critch still found time to quench his vampiric thirst for showbusiness by popping up in Miranda, Skins and Downton Abbey on TV, as well as voicing various computer games such as Witcher and World Of Warcraft and RAC Radio ads for Classic FM. Still dabbling in Radio Drama he can be heard as a regular reader on What The Papers Say for Radio Four and as assorted characters in plays. You may have seen him knocking meaningfully on wood in the Oak Furniture Land commercials on TV – go on, shout “Got any veneer in ‘ere?” at him and hear him scream! Watch out for his turn as the good old fashioned British Pathe Newsreader in the movie Monuments Men Directed by George Clooney. Who Critch swears is a good friend of his but we don’t believe a word.
