The latest episode of Who Do You Think You Are? continues tonight on BBC1 at 9pm with Martin Shaw, star of The Professionals, Judge John Deed and Inspector George Gently. Martin’s family roots have strong Birmingham connections in the thriving brass industry of the 1800s. If you’d like to know more, TheGenealogist has looked into his family history in their ‘Featured Article’ section.
It promises to be an interesting episode tonight. There’s a grandfather who suddenly disappears and also some of Martin’s ancestors were involved in the gun manufacturing industry in the 1800s, a coincidence given the ‘expert shot’ that Martin Shaw played in his acting role in The Professionals, that of former Detective Constable Raymond Doyle!
