Clive Walter Swift (9 February 1936-1 February 2019[1]) was an English actor who played Mr Jobel in Revelation of the Daleks and Mr Copper in Voyage of the Damned. He is best known for his role as long-suffering husband Richard Bucket in the popular BBC sitcom Keeping Up Appearances. Swift also played Reverend Brewer in Born and Bred and Sir Hector in John Boorman's 1981 film Excalibur.

Doctor Who Magazine contributor Benjamin Cook interviewed Swift about Mr Copper and Voyage of the Damned for DWM 391. During the course of the interview Swift questioned Cook's journalism credentials, dismissed questions, and commented on not being paid to participate. Swift cut off Cook's final question with the remark that "I know that you all think that this is a big world, this Who business. But it isn't. There are much bigger things than this." When Cook replied, "Maybe, but it means a lot to a great many of us," Swift terminated the interview.[2]
