G'day Sandman55. That's her. I thought she would be easier. Who do you have for us?

Cheers.

Stella Maria Sarah Miles Franklin, known as Miles Franklin was an Australian writer and feminist who is best known for her novel My Brilliant Career, published by Blackwoods of Edinburgh in 1901. While she wrote throughout her life, her other major literary success, All That Swagger, was not published until 1936

No takers? It must be harder than I thought. Think of her as a younger person and the nursery rhyme "Polly put the kettle on"

Cheers.

Still no takers, she acted in a comedy series with her tall lanky husband at the time. The series is still repeated and I still get a laugh at it.

The face is familiar, but the second female name in the Rhyme doesn't ring any bells.   No help from me I'm afraid.

Hi Sheba her name in the series was the first name in the rhyme. This will probably give it away. There were only 12 episodes made of the series.

OK terriwa I'll give it to you yes it is John Cleeses ex she played the part of Polly in Fawlty Towers and her name is Connie Booth over to you for a picture.

Acting career

Booth secured parts in episodes of Monty Python's Flying Circus (196974) and in the Python films And Now for Something Completely Different (1971) and Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975, as a woman accused of being a witch). She also appeared in How to Irritate People (1968), a pre-Monty Python film starring Cleese and other future Monty Python members; a short film titled Romance with a Double Bass (1974) adapted by Cleese from a short story by Anton Chekhov; and The Strange Case of the End of Civilization as We Know It (1977), Cleese's Sherlock Holmes spoof, as Mrs. Hudson.

Booth and Cleese went on to write and co-star in Fawlty Towers (1975 and 1979), in which she played waitress and chambermaid Polly.

Booth played various roles on British television, including Sophie in Dickens of London (1976), Mrs. Errol in a BBC adaptation of Little Lord Fauntleroy (1980) and Miss March in a dramatisation of Edith Wharton's The Buccaneers (1995). She also starred in the lead role of a drama called The Story of Ruth (1981), in which she played the role of the schizophrenic daughter of an abusive father, for which she received critical acclaim. In 1994, she played a supporting role in "The Culex Experiment", an episode of the children's science fiction TV series The Tomorrow People.

Psychotherapy career

Booth ended her acting career in 1995.[6] After studying for five years at London University,[4] she began a career as a psychotherapist, registered with the British Psychoanalytic Council.[4][6][8]

Personal life

In 1971, Booth and Cleese had a daughter, Cynthia,[4] who appeared alongside her father in the films A Fish Called Wanda and Fierce Creatures. Booth and Cleese divorced in 1978.[1] With Cleese, Booth wrote the scripts for and co-starred in both series of Fawlty Towers, even though the two were actually divorced before the second series was finished and aired. Booth's daughter Cynthia married screenwriter Ed Solomon in 1995.[9][10]

Booth married John Lahr, author and former New Yorker senior drama critic, in 2000. They live in north London.[6]

Thanks Chris & Sharyn. This guy is an actor and in a popular TV series that I have watched that repeats over and over you didn't actually see his face so I think you might need clues but we will wait and see.

No not David Ross. You're close you have the right Android but David Ross only played Kryten in one or two episodes and he was later replaced with the man in the picture who became a regular in the series.
