Major Crime and Corporal Punishment

"Major Crime and Corporal Punishment" were mentioned as a comedy military double act in a Lovejoy episode. Former Major Linden Walker (played by John Wells, better known for his Denis Thatcher impersonations) had been Major Crime, and former Corporal Tinker Dill (played by Dudley Sutton) had apparently been called Corporal Punishment.  John Wells sadly died in January 1998, when he was 61.

This episode 15, broadcast on 3 February 1991, was called Who Dares, Sings.  It was in the second series.  The first series was in 1986.  For those who are interested in Lovejoy locations, as I am, the pub restaurant was in fact The Nag's Head at Moreton, near Ongar, Essex. It was once known as Moreton Massey.  The pub restaurant is still operating.   http://www.grahamsatthenagshead.com/
