Not him. Stratford Johns (and Frank Windsor) were in Softly Softly after Z Cars.

The actor I am looking for is best known for a comedy role in which he played someone called Cuthbert

He played the same character in two sitcoms and is the only member of the original cast of the earlier sitcom still alive.

Nicholas Smith? I think that his name was Cuthbert ?? the department manager in "Are You Being Served". I right, I had forgotten that Molly Sugden is no longer with us.

Spot on David. Nicholas Smith, who played Cuthbert Rumbold in "Are You Being Served" is the father of Catherine Russell, who plays Serena Campbell in "Holby City"

Thank you John. It came to me afterwards that his name was Rumbold.

Staying with the same programme, the actor who replaced Trevor Bannister also had a UK hit single which reached number 9 in 1980. Names of actor and song please.
