I thought it was about time Edward had his own discussion thread - even though photos and information regarding the actor might not be as readily available as it would with other actors in the cast. Apologies in advance for some of screenshots that are not of the best quality.

What a splendid actor - and with a facial expression that predated Grumpy Cat by decades! I'm doing some research on Edward, and I believe he lived for many years in Berrylands, Surbiton - not far from Berrylands railway station. Can anyone confirm that?
Ted has the best facial expressions of anyone in this series by a looooong way
No doubt about it. My son was watching the Test match episode recently and loved the comical expression and pose of the verger every time he took up position as a ball was about to be bowled. It's the same in Brain v Brawn and the way he scans the area to see if it's ok to light the fire. Can make you laugh without uttering a word.
The test match is probably the best episode for his expressions. His cricket poses are just so random, yet somehow completely fit the situation. He also seems to make lines his own. Like how he says 'he's hit him, right across the gargoyles' or 'bloodcurdling it was' He gives the line his own character and makes it funnier than it necessarily is.
