Some of Steve's work
« on: August 17, 2009, 02:20:22 PM »
Born in Bradford, West Yorkshire on 5 November 1947, became a civil servant when he left school. Eager to become an actor, he performed with an amateur group in Bradford, then trained at the Central School of Speech and Drama. Before joining the cast of Follyfoot he appeared in 'The Grievance' and 'The Rivals of Sherlock Holmes'. He has since appeared in many programmes including 'The Legend of King Arthur', 'Break in the Sun' and 'Enemy at the Door'.
In recent years he has acted in numerous radio plays and taught at the Central School of Sppech and Drama. His ambition is to direct radio plays, somthing the BBC has already asked him to do. 'But I think I need to do a lot more teaching and to direct in fringe theatre before I'm ready for that' says Steve. He has two children, Eleanor and Jessica and lives in West London.

Certainly not a complete list, but a fair bit to see:

IMDB has a page on Steve which concentrates on his tv work:


He particicpated in an advert for "Tetley's Bitter" beer.

Episode or two of "all creatures great and small" , the james herriott series from the late 70's. he played the part of a soldier involved in the care of an officer's horse. ( I may be wrong on the exact plot) but I clearly remember his appearance.

(Not sure of date, but yellowed and at least 15years old) - you might have it already, it was in the TV times.

Lambert, Martin

b. 1955

Martin Lambert was the assistant vet in Bill Robertson's practice from 1984 to 1989. Soon after his arrival in Ambridge, Shula Archer caught his eye and he went as far as pushing Eddie Grundy into the River Am when he insulted Shula at a bonfire party. When Shula had had enough of him, he turned his attnetions to her younger sister Elizabeth,

Martin wasn't thought of as kind, but could be on occasions: he once gave Walter Gabriel a budgie to keep him company. Wanting to live in Ambridge, he tried to rent Honeysuckle Cottage from Nelson Gabriel after Walter's death, but Nelson decided to keep it in the family. Martin did his best to persuade Caroline Bone to let him have a cheap room at Grey Gables but Jack Woolley put his foot down. Unable to find anywhere else to stay he was forced to move in to Grange Farm. Joe and Eddie Grundy, delighted to have a resident vet, tried to get free consultations for their stock. But Martin knew his proce and veterinary bills duly arrived. Eventually Joe's gloomy prophecies and selpulchral cough drove him to move into a flat in Borchester.

Scott Cherry; David Goodland; Steve Hodson

They Saw It Happen (and in fact this audiobook has been nominated for an award for this - see and their 2004 Audie Awards - but not sure that Steve is up for an award personally). He has consistently been narrating until now. So....hope he's still registered with Equity!

Gosh, Nik you have been busy transcribing and posting all this delicious info on Steve. Thanks.

He has been very busy on the radio, too. I understand he has recorded over 1000 plays.

He did play a soldier in AGGAS, Trooper Raven who took care of an officer's horse before they were made redundant with the army's use of mechanical vehicles. It wasn't his first military part. He also appeared in A Horseman Riding By 1978 in which he played an injured First World War soldier.

I can add to the Audiobook list too!..

Breed of Giants by Joyce Stranger.
Turkish Gambit, and Winter Queen by Boris Akukin.
A Spot of bother, Mark Haddon
This age we live in, David Wilson
Samurai William, Giles Milton.

And his latest... A Narrowdog to Carcassonne by Terry Darlington (2007), which won an Americian Audie award for the best non fiction audiobook. And it's sequel A Narrowdog on Indian River. (2008)

There are probably more but that's all that comes directly to mind.

He may have been missing( >47< )from our TV screens but Steve certainly hasn't been idle. I believe he also directs now too!
