Leslie Gilbert Dwyer (28 August 1906 – 26 December 1986[1][2]) was an English film and television actor.[3]


He was born in Catford, the son of the popular music hall comedian Johnny Dwyer, and acted from the age of ten and appeared in his first film in 1921. He is perhaps best known for his role as the Punch and Judy man Mr Partridge in BBC sitcom Hi-de-Hi!. Film roles included In Which We Serve (1942), The Way Ahead (1944), the 1952 remake of Hindle Wakes, Act of Love (1953) in which he played a two hander scene opposite the young Brigitte Bardot, Room in the House (1955), the 1959 remake of Hitchcock's The 39 Steps, and Die, Monster, Die! (1966).[4]

He played Sergeant Dusty Miller in the original 1942 production of Terence Rattigan's play Flare Path.[5]

He played Drinkwater in the 1953 television production of George Bernard Shaw's Captain Brassbound's Conversion. His most notable television role was as Mr. Partridge, the miserable, hard-drinking Punch and Judy man with an aversion to children, in the British sitcom Hi-de-Hi!. He took roles in Public Eye in 1969, Doctor Who (as Vorg in Carnival of Monsters in 1973) and in Steptoe and Son, Terry and June, Wodehouse Playhouse, Z-Cars[4] and The Sweeney, in which he played "old sea dog" Ted Greenhead in the episode Trojan Bus.


Dwyer died on 26 December 1986, aged 80 (respiratory failure due to pulmonary embolism). His grave is located in the East London Cemetery.[6]
