The voice that told Peter Graves the tape would self-destruct in five seconds in Mission Impossible. You heard him but never saw him. Pity that. You could've had an episode where Graves hooks up with the disembodied voice for a swift one at the local bar after said mission had been achieved.

"This tape will self-destruct in five seconds. By the way, Mr. Phelps, there's a lovely little bar just around the corner and I'm wondering if you'd like to..."

Phfsssssst...

I'm pretty certain that my uncle went to school with Bernie The Bolt (or one of them, if there was more than one of them).

Was Orson, on Mork & Mindy, ever seen on camera?

No. Just this voice which sounded like the ones you got in the opening credits of every Quinn Martin-produced cop series.

The Big Giant Head from Third Rock From The Sun. Always heard (via the thin dim one) but never seen.

There seems to be something of a theme developing here: if you're an aspiring young actor seeking exposure and wanting to be seen on film and television, don't typecast yourself as:

a. an alien overlord
b. a domineering wife

Well, those particular offscreen types don't really exist today do they (unless I've missed a few)? And it's also interesting to note that the offscreen presence card has been played in mostly wildly successful shows as opposed to complete clinkers.

There should always be a place on the television for the alien overlord.

I should also take this opportunity to mention Joe Maplin, from Hi-de-Hi.

I think there should be a thread where we nominate characters that should've stayed offscreen instead of stinking up the place with their presence.

Anything with Joan Collins in for a start.

The baddie on Inspector Gadget. You only saw his fist. And his cat. Not connected to each other.

I once dallied with the fantasy where a rival operative in Bond's department, hating his guts, had every name on his official documentation and identification changed to James D. Nob.

Childish, I know.

I was going to delete the above post on grounds of idiocy, but then I thought, 'nah, warts n' all'.

Ian: That post gave me my first coffee/monitor-interface, spluttering laugh out loud moment of the day, so thanks for leaving that in.
