From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

William Desmond Anthony Pertwee (born July 21, 1926) Amersham, Buckinghamshire, is a British comedy actor. He is the cousin of former Doctor Who actor Jon Pertwee and nephew of the screenwriter and actor Roland Pertwee.

He appeared alongside Kenneth Horne, Hugh Paddick, Betty Marsden and Kenneth Williams in the radio comedy series Beyond Our Ken and Round the Horne in the 1960's.

His most prominent role was that of ARP Warden Bert Hodges in Dad's Army, which he played in both the original television series and the radio remakes, as well as the radio sequel, It Sticks Out Half a Mile, set after the war, in which Hodges takes up a surprising new project.

He later played the police constable in another creation of Jimmy Perry and David Croft, You Rang M'Lord?.
