Gorden Kaye (born as Gordon Fitzgerald Kaye on 7 April 1941 in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire) is a BAFTA-nominated ...
René François Artois (Gorden Kaye) - The local café proprietor, whilst trying to remain impartial, has been brought into the war on both sides. The Germans are threatening to shoot him if he does not secretly hide stolen valuable paintings; the Resistance are using his café as a safe-house for shot down British airmen; and on top of that, he is trying to keep his passionate love affairs with the café serving girls secret from his wife. When caught in the arms of another woman, René invariable responds with the phrase "You stupid woman! Can you not see that..." followed by a convoluted explanation, which Edith always believes, resulting in an apology from her. René does not care much for his mother-in-law, often referring to her as a "silly old bat!". Each episode starts with scenery, costumes or props from the end of the previous episode, and (usually) René opens each episode with a monologue to the camera starting "You may be wondering why..." and proceeding to describe the situation he finds himself in, and summarise the events of the previous episode leading up to it.
