L.W.T.'s 'Who Do You Do?' was a quick fire sketch show starring top impressionists of the day, such as Freddie Starr, Janet Brown, Faith Brown, and Russ Abbot. The one who made the biggest impact on me though was Peter Goodwright; I once saw him do a 'Dad's Army' routine in which he did the voices of the entire cast. Paul Melba ( whatever happened to him? ) was good too; nobody did James Mason better! Kenneth Williams impersonator Adam Daye went on to appear in 'Opportunity Knocks!', rather than the other way round! '60's songstress Sandie Shaw appeared in one episode. The gags were fairly corny; one sketch had Tarzan ( Freddie Starr ) playing cards with Cheetah the chimp. Tarzan threw the cards into the air, and exclaimed angrily: "Me Tarzan. Him Cheetah ( cheater )!". Starr played James Cagney in another sketch. "You dirty rat!", he said. Then the camera pulled back to reveal Starr giving a toy rat a good brushing! 'Who Do You Do?' proved sufficiently popular with viewers to run for many years. In the mid-80's, L.W.T. revived it under a different title - 'Copy Cats'.
