Life

Hugh Lloyd was born in Chester and went to school at The King's School, Chester. Upon leaving school he spent two years as a newspaper reporter on the "Chester Chronicle".

His first professional acting appearance was with ENSA and he worked in repertory theatre until 1957, when he made the first of 25 appearances on the television series "Hancock's Half Hour". He appeared with Terry Scott in the series "Hugh and I" and "The Gnomes of Dulwich"; with Peggy Mount in "Lollipop Loves Mr. Mole"; in "Jury" and "You Rang M'Lord?". He created the series "Lord Tramp" (1977), written by Michael Pertwee, in which he also starred. The "Comedy Playhouse" special, "Hughie", in which he starred as a recently-released prisoner following the ending of "Hugh and I", was unsuccessful.

Television plays in which he appeared include "She's Been Away" (starring Peggy Ashcroft); "The Dunroamin Rising"; "A Matter Of Will" (with Brenda Bruce); and a number of Alan Bennett plays, notably "" (with Patricia Routledge), "Say Something Happened" (with Julie Walters and Thora Hird), and "Me, I'm Afraid Of Virginia Woolf". He played Goronwy Jones in the "Doctor Who" episode "Delta and the Bannermen" and has appeared in numerous television light entertainment shows, including Victoria Wood, Jimmy Cricket and "Babble Quiz".

On the West End stage, Lloyd spent three seasons at the Windmill Theatre; a year at the Strand Theatre in "When We Are Married"; two years in "No Sex Please, We're British" at the Strand; and at the Lyric Theatre in "". He was part of the Royal National Theatre company under Ian McKellen, in "The Critic", "The Cherry Orchard" and "The Duchess of Malfi". He has also performed in over twenty pantomimes.

Lloyd was awarded an MBE in the 2005 New Year Honours List for his services to drama and charity. Lloyd died in 2008 at his home in Worthing. [http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/obituaries/2403860/Hugh-Lloyd.html]
