Round-faced and pushy-looking, Terence Alexander started a regular film career in the 1950s, usually appearing in light roles -- as smooth, upper-class charmers, beguiling rogues or amiable oafs. He was a natural for a part in The League of Gentlemen -- and it was probably his best film role.(Source: available at Amazon Quinlan's Illustrated Dictionary of Film Character Actors).

Peter Martin: Well handsomely, old chap. Luckiest day in my life when you asked me to check on that license number. Which reminds me - I owe you a tenner.
