Win a set of Icon/Hammer UK DVD releases!

UPDATE 27th September 2011:

1. Bernard
2. Leo McKern (Moriarty in The Adventure Of Sherlock Holmes' Smarter Brother; Peter Hammond was in TV Sherlock Holmes, not movie)
3. Time (although this was something of a trick question, the key clue is in the film Captain Kronos, where the word/character-name definitively means "time", which is also the most common agreed literal meaning of the Ancient Greek word Χρόνος ["chronos", or "kronos" in the film]; sadly nothing to do with Cronus/Saturn the Titan).

In any event, the judges' decision is final!
