He was born in Westcliff-on-Sea, Essex, England. The son of a doctor, he made his acting debut at the Theatre Royal in Bournemouth.

His early acting career saw him playing a succession of doctors and policemen in many films, the former on film in Hell Drivers (1957), the latter on television in Big Breadwinner Hog (1969). He was more prolific in television from the 1960s and played character roles in many series and programmes including The Lotus Eaters (1972-73) and The Duchess of Duke Street (1976-77), though is perhaps best known for his role as Doc Morrissey in the BBC sitcom The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin (1976–79) in which his catchphrase was "Take two Aspirins".
