Richard Gibson played Gestapo Officer Herr Otto Flick in the BBC series, ‘Allo ‘Allo!. Dressed in an ankle-length leather coat and with the obligatory stiff-legged limp and walking stick, Herr Flick spent his life suppressing peasants, seducing Helga, the German town Commandant’s assistant, and vainly trying to get his hands on the original of the painting “The Fallen Madonna with the Big Boobies” by Van Klomp.

Richard Gibson toured with ‘Allo ‘Allo! when it transferred to the stage, having successful tours both in the United Kingdom and abroad. The stage version of the show gave rein to his other skills and he was able to demonstrate his mastery of the violin.

He released a single with his ‘Allo ‘Allo! colleague Helga called ‘Rock Around Ze Clock’.
