30 Days Of Adam Adamant #2

03. Favourite regular character

Adam! Adam's great. He dashes heroically into battle with a cape and a sword-stick, and he wears the most splendid shoes. Gerald Harper plays him perfectly, with tongue just slightly in cheek, like a Boy's Own hero come to life. He's a bit ridiculous, but in all the right ways.

04. Favourite guest character

That's a tough question. John le Mesurier is as good as you'd expect as the oily Velmer in "The Terribly Happy Embalmers", and Peter Vaughan is extremely effective as crazed preacher Doctor Mort in "The Doomsday Plan". Then there's Peter Jeffrey as Sinoda, the beautiful-people-collecting nut from "Beauty Is An Ugly Word". I think I would choose Colin Jeavons, though, as fashion designer-gone-evil Roger Clair in "To Set A Deadly Fashion". He's brilliant, he really is.

Poor Adam having to fight all these nutcases! I was reading your answer to #4 and going "Ah yes, their guest appearances in 'The Avengers' were good too." It's a small acting world. Much underrated Colin Jeavons, I think.

Oh, Adam doesn't mind. He's never happier than when he's leaping about with the fisticuffs and the sword-swinging. He's a very obliging hero.
