Roger Lloyd Pack in last ever role, BBC Radio 4 comedy spoof show “Gloomsbury”
The late Roger Lloyd Pack (Barty Crouch, Sr.), who sadly passed away this year, will be heard in the upcoming Bloomsbury Group spoof season. The second season of the Radio 4 comedy, called Gloomsbury, will air in March.
Roger recorded his parts for the show toward the end of last year, and the first episode of the show will be dedicated to him. They are the last ever roles that he recorded. Roger plays “the amorous gardener Gosling and long-suffering husband Lionel Fox.”
Gloosmbury also stars Miriam Margolyes (Professor Sprout), who plays Vera Sackcloth-Vest. Miriam said,
The first [season] was met with hysteria and delight from everybody, and I’m 100% thrilled to be back playing Vera amongst this extraordinary cast. Vera is great fun to play because she’s a fount of sexuality and desire and simply doesn’t care how much sex is involved.”
It has only just been revealed that Roger was involved with the show, and he said before his death,
I’ve always been interested in the Bloomsbury set, and I think it’s a rather brilliant idea to make fun of them as they lived in this extraordinary, slightly snobby bubble.”
