Lynda Baron
(born 24 March 1939[1]) is a BAFTA-nominated English stage, film and television actress, perhaps best known for playing the extremely busty Nurse Gladys Emmanuel, the object of Arkwright's affection, in the BBC comedy series Open All Hours.

Early life and career

Lynda Baron was born in Urmston, Lancashire and originally trained as a dancer at the Royal Academy of Dance.[1]

Early in her career she appeared in repertory theatre and several West End revues. Her early television roles included small parts in Crossroads (1964), Up Pompeii (1970), Z-Cars (1971), and the British horror film Hands of the Ripper (1971). Baron appeared on television in BBC Three (1965), a series in the vein of That Was The Week That Was, involving some of the same performers. She also alternated with Annie Ross as the resident singer on Not So Much a Programme, More a Way of Life (1965). Baron has taken part in the BBC science fiction series Doctor Who three times. She was heard as a singer in the 1966 serial The Gunfighters, appeared in front of the cameras as Captain Wrack in the 1983 serial Enlightenment, and again in 2011 in Closing Time as Val.

However, Baron is best known for playing Nurse Gladys Emanuel in the popular BBC comedy series Open All Hours alongside Ronnie Barker and David Jason. The show ran for four series in 1976, 1981 to 1982 and 1985, and was subsequently voted eighth in Britain's Best Sitcom in 2004. Also in the 1970s and 1980s, Baron co-starred in the ITV sitcom Oh No, It's Selwyn Froggitt! and the forgotten BBC sitcom A Roof Over My Head. She had small parts in Minder and Last of the Summer Wine. In 1986 she acted with Stanley Lebor in a party political broadcast for the SDP–Liberal Alliance.[2] Baron also appeared in the 1987 Christmas special of The Two Ronnies. In 1987 Baron starred in the London production of the musical Follies at the Shaftesbury Theatre. Baron then went on to appear in the BBC Two comedy series KYTV.[3]

In the 1990s Baron played Auntie Pat in five episodes of the ITV sitcom The Upper Hand (1992–93). She also appeared in the film Carry On Columbus in 1992. Baron then went on to star in the children's television series Come Outside (1993). In that series she played Auntie Mabel, an everyday woman living in a bungalow, set in Denham. She flies round on various adventures in her spotted aeroplane with her dog Pippin. In 1995 Lynda Baron voiced the character of Nanny Ogg in the BBC Radio 4 adaptation of the Terry Pratchett Discworld novel Wyrd Sisters. In 1997 Baron played Renee Turnball in Coronation Street and took guest roles in Dinnerladies (1998), The Mrs Bradley Mysteries (1998), Sunburn (1999), Nancherrow (1999), and Goodnight Sweetheart (1999).

Baron continued to work regularly on TV and the stage in the 2000s, with credits including Fat Friends (2000–2005), The Bill (2000), Doctors (2000, 2006, 2010 and 2011), Peak Practice (2001), Holby City (2002 and 2006), Down to Earth (2005), Rome (2005) and Casualty (2009). In 2005 Baron appeared in the film Colour Me Kubrick opposite John Malkovich and in 2007 starred in a stage version of In Celebration, opposite Orlando Bloom and Tim Healy.[4] Baron briefly appeared in the BBC soap opera EastEnders in 2006 as Linda Clarke, the mother of Jane Beale. In September 2008 it was announced that Baron would be returning to EastEnders as Linda Clarke.[5] She appeared regularly in the series from November 2008 to February 2009. In May and June 2009 Baron appeared at the Menier Chocolate Factory in a production of Rookery Nook, a play by Ben Travers.[6]

Lynda Baron's other theatre credits include An Inspector Calls, Stepping Out, Entertaining Mr Sloane and The Full Monty.

Recent years

In August 2010, Baron appeared in an episode of Agatha Christie's Marple on ITV.

In September 2010, Baron appeared in a one-off television drama The Road to Coronation Street on BBC Four, about the early days of the British television soap opera Coronation Street. Baron played the actress Violet Carson who played Ena Sharples in the soap.[7] Baron was nominated for the 2011 British Academy Television Award for Best Supporting Actress for this role.

From October 2010 to February 2011, Baron starred alongside Maureen Lipman and Roy Hudd in a West End production of When We Are Married by J B Priestley.[8]

In April 2012, Richard Kates released an album entitled "There's Something About You", which featured Lynda Baron performing the track, "A Hard Man Is Good to Find!"[9]

On 11 May 2012 Baron appeared in the Afternoon Play on BBC Radio 4, Mrs Lowry and Son, playing the mother of artist LS Lowry.[10]

She is currently appearing in a production of D.H. Lawrence's play The Daughter-in-Law at the Sheffield Crucible in March 2013.[11]

Carry On Columbus (1992) is the 31st and final (to date) film in the series of Carry On films to be made; it was a belated entry to the series, following 1978's Carry On Emmannuelle. It was produced to coincide with the 500th anniversary of Christopher Columbus' discovery of the Americas (two other more serious films on the subject, 1492: Conquest of Paradise and Christopher Columbus: The Discovery came out the same year).


Christopher Columbus (Jim Dale) believes he can find an alternative route to the far East and persuades the King (Leslie Phillips) and Queen of Spain (June Whitfield) to finance his expedition. But the Sultan of Turkey (Rik Mayall), who makes a great deal of money through taxing the merchants who have to pass through his country on the current route, sends his best spy, Fatima (Sara Crowe), to wreck the trip...


The only main series regulars present are Jim Dale (in his eleventh Carry On), Peter Gilmore (also in his eleventh), Bernard Cribbins (in his third), Leslie Phillips (in his fourth), Jon Pertwee (in his fourth) and June Whitfield (also in her fourth). The only actor to bridge the gap between Carry On Columbus and the previous entry was Jack Douglas, making his eighth appearance in the series.

Original Carry On performer Frankie Howerd was signed up to appear, but he died shortly before he was due to film his role. His part as the King of Spain was offered to original series regular Bernard Bresslaw, who turned it down. Leslie Phillips eventually took on the role, playing opposite June Whitfield as the Queen, a role turned down by both Joan Sims and Barbara Windsor.

The producers managed to persuade a number of alternative comedians such as Peter Richardson, Alexei Sayle, Rik Mayall, Julian Clary and Nigel Planer, all of whom except Clary are from The Comic Strip, to appear in the film.

This was the last film that Gerald Thomas directed, as he died on 9 November 1993.

Filming and locations

  • Filming dates: 21 April – 27 May 1992



  • Frensham Ponds. This location was previously used nearly 30 years earlier for the similarly nautical Carry On Jack.


The film was panned by many critics but it took more money at the UK box office than the two other Columbus films released in 1992, Christopher Columbus: The Discovery and 1492: Conquest of Paradise, although all three films flopped.
