When there was a need, Secombe would often play the part of a Yorkshireman, usually un-named. One example of Secombe's Yorkshire accent is in the episode "Lurgi Strikes Britain", where he plays a bus conductor in Oldham (some of the outlying villages of Oldham were situated in the West Riding of Yorkshire at the time.), the first victim of the dreaded lurgi. He also uses the accent as a workman in "The Last Tram (From Clapham)", and as the Manager of the East Acton Labour Exchange in "World War I". In "The Macreekie Rising" he plays a dim Yorkshireman on guard at the Tower of London, using the name "Fred Nurke".
