'Sergeant Cork' remembered with affection.
I used to enjoy 'Sergeant Cork' on Saturday evenings in the mid-1960s, not least with a fish and chip supper. Freddie Fowler's character Chalky was something of a scene stealer: 'Here's your tea, Sergeant - it's just how you like it: as hot as Hell and as strong as the Devil'. I paraphrase the quote today still, on occasion. Towards the end of the series, production standards seemed to slip - certainly it seemed like live television. I never found Charlie Rodway particularly convincing - sorry. Bruce Forsyth paid tribute to the show's two main characters in one of his Sunday Night shows around 1964.
