One of the true mega-stars of CBSRMT he was in 179 episodes. Recognizable from his typically older male character roles. He played Dr. Watson in several of the Sherlock Holmes adaptations. Benson died in 1995.

He was fantastic. An actor that could play most any role, and every episode I heard was completely believable. A true multi- talent!
