Last night I was watching 'Who's that merry man with Billy then'. That's the episode in which Billy gets a new recruit. If you remember, Billy is waiting at a bus stop for his new recruit. People get off the bus and go their separate ways, that is except for a very powerful looking woman with a stern but happy face. The reception committee stare in disbelief and Billy's jaw just hangs open. I don't recall or rather didn't recall seeing this woman in anything else on the Telly. How wrong I was. I watched the credits come up at the end of the episode and watched for who was playing this domineering strong athletic female. I saw the name but could not believe who the actress was playing the part. Valerie Leon. She was, and still is, a very beautiful seductive woman. I thought that there must be more than one actress with that name. Today I searched the web for Valerie Leon. You will find her and the clip at the bus stop at this web addy.
That has to be the best makeup and acting I have ever seen. Maybe you already knew who it was. Looking at the faces on Clegg and co I get the impression that they weren't acting. It's as though they were expecting an attractive woman. I think the makeup had been kept secret. You can see the bus stop scene under 'Showreel'.
