Beyond The Railway Children: Bernard Cribbins’s weirdest and most wonderful roles

  • Amongst the many skills that the late, great actor Bernard Cribbins possessed was the ability to make the nation cry. Cribbins, who has died at the age of 93, was beloved by one generation for his appearance in The Railway Children as the superficially crotchety but deeply decent station master Albert Perks, and by another for his appearance in the David Tennant-era Dr Who as the former soldier Wilfred Mott, grandfather of the Doctor’s companion Donna Noble.

Fourth man executed in controversial Arkansas death penalty case

A fourth inmate has been executed in just a week in the US State of Arkansas after weeks of controversy about plans for a high number of executions in a short space of time. Kenneth Williams was one of eight prisoners who were told they would be executed within 11 days because one of the lethal injection drugs used would expire at the end of April. Williams, 38, was serving a life sentence for murdering a cheerleader and killed two people after escaping from jail. The four executions in a week is said to be the highest in US death penalty history since the 1950s, in a case in which Arkansan’s governor, Asa Hutchinson, was accused of acting “recklessly”. After legal challenges and a public outcry over the reasons for the fast pace in executions, four of the prisoners initially issued with death warrants were spared execution for now.
