He also played Edward, the footman, in the period drama Upstairs, Downstairs, and played Billy Henshaw in the sitcom In Loving Memory.
Christopher was best known for his portrayal of Herman Teasdale, who went on to become known as Moreton Beamish, in Last Of The Summer Wine. The actor first began making guest appearances in the show in 2001, and eventually joined the show’s cast until it went off the air in 2010.
In 2006, he appeared in a small role in Emmerdale, alongside his former Upstairs, Downstairs co-star Jenny Tomasin, and later joined the cast of the mini-series Sense & Sensibility, adapted from the classic Jane Austen novel.
