I think Shane Briant was a very under used actor,like Robert Tayman he had an amazing androgenous look.He was in "Demons of the Mind",another unfairly maligned latter day Hammer with Paul Jones,later they starred together in the great Sweeney episode "Chalk and Cheese"."Vampire Circus" star Tayman has a brief appearance in one of the best episodes of the 1st series of "Survivors",it's strange to watch as he looks and sounds so ordinary (though he was re voiced for "V Circus") compared to the few films he did ("House of Whipcord" the other I can think of).Interesting to note that due to tv scheduling times (everything on the hour/half hour) shorter Hammer features such as "Cash on Demand" are very unlikely to ever be shown,I remember C4 showing a Hammer short by Joseph Losey called "A Man on the Beach" which lasts less than 30 mins...
