3. David McDonald (Actor) EDITED: He said he was a Doctor, but everyone questioned it.

7.James Michael Aloysius Bradford (Actor) Started his career playing a brickie on a building site in Germany. The gobby one.

Well done Helen, all correct, thanks also to Doug, Riel and Vince for taking part.

I've just tried looking for the advert from the 80's, but can't find it. I used to work in a petrol station just outside Bristol in the early 80's and would pass a shell garage on the way, and would remember tagline.

The only ads I can find are from the 50's/60's so it's possible that was in the back of my mind.
