Victor Maddern (16 March 1926-22 June 1993[1]) played John Robson in the Doctor Who television story Fury from the Deep. Maddern was a prolific supporting actor in British film and TV, probably most noted for appearing in various Carry On films.

He also made four guest appearances on police series Dixon of Dock Green from 1967-1975. While the final episode he guest starred in, It's a Gift, is lost, an outtake survives in which Maddern's character tries various times to tell another character (played by Alan Tilvern) "It’s down at Dock Green nick"[2]. After two failed attempts, Maddern eventually asks the director "can’t I just say it’s down at the nick?".
