Windsor Davies’ best known role was as Battery Sergeant Major Williams in the British sitcom It Ain’t Half Hot Mum (1974–81). Among his catchphrases was “Shut Up!”, delivered as aneardrum-shattering military scream. Another phrase was “Oh dear, how sad, never mind”, delivered in a dry, ironic manner, and used when others around him had problems. Davies and co-star Don Estelle had a number one hit in the UK with a semi-comic version of “Whispering Grass” in 1975. He played major roles in two later Carry On films, Behind (1975) and England (1976), in the latter as a sergeant major. He played the antique dealer, Oliver Smallbridge, in Never the Twain (1981–91), with Donald Sinden. Windsor has also had a hugely successful career as a voice over artist due to his distinct and powerful voice and still works to this day.
