** Made a second appearance as host in season 45, which (coincidentally) happened to be set right after MargaretThatcher's death. Although noticeably subdued compared to his first appearance, the episode contained several gems such as challenging Gerry Adams to a fistfight on national television.

BLESSED's reputation for boisterousness is such that some online forums, such as Gallifrey Base (a major ''Doctor Who'' forum) are coded so that whenever his name is typed in, the website automatically renders it in ALL CAPS as done here.



In his personal life, BLESSED is almost but not quite the exact opposite of his stage persona. BLESSED is a mild-mannered and soft-spoken man, who is a vegetarian, practices meditation and spends a lot of time caring for abused animals. He is well aware of his boisterous reputation and enjoys poking fun at it on TV chat shows and in public appearances.

* He directed and starred in an adaptation of ''Theatre/KingLear'' where he played the title character in 1999. It clocks in at one hundred and ninety two minutes. Strangely, where most actors would be screaming their heads of during the storm scene, Brian was much quieter in comparison to even how he usually is in films.

Along with [[Series/TheAvengers Diana Rigg]] and [[Series/TopGear Jeremy Clarkson]], he's from Doncaster. The fact that Doncaster is now also home to an extensive school and college for the deaf may not be coincidental.

* GentleGiant: BLESSED may be calmer than apparent. During the filming of ''Prisoner of Honor'' he reportedly managed to keep OliverReed sober by sheer force of being big and intimidating.

* In an epsode of the British 1970s anthology show ''Thriller'' he gives a surprisingly quiet performance as a rural police chief helping a young woman investigate a cold murder case. [[spoiler:Turns out he is the murderer, though]].

* He had a live-action role in the otherwise-execrable ''VideoGame/WingCommander'' spinoff ''VideoGame/Privateer2TheDarkening''. [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment A certain notorious web critic]] gave it a good skewering (though he regarded the non-playable FMV bits to be fairly sound).
