MICHAEL HORDERN (Gandalf): The first – an archangel – who’s guarding a vase?
2. The second – spends more than an age at his house?
CHRISTOPHER FAIRBANK (Shagrat): The third graced our screens in ‘Auf Wiedersehen, Pet!’
ROBERT STEPHENS (Aragorn): The fourth was a Prince on a Veronese set.
5. The fifth, though no hobbit, loves victuals and drink,
PAULINE LETTS (Ioreth): The sixth – Walford matriarch allows us – I think!
7. The seventh played quack to Ross Poldark’s old flame -
8. The eighth, (flag the second), definitive Thain!*
LEONARD FENTON (Daddy Twofoot): The ninth, (flag the fourth), a Walfordian quack -
10. The tenth – Tucker’s sister? (Once a river flows back).
11. In eleven, a saint meets a foundling most poor -
WILLIAM NIGHY: In twelve, it seems Shakespeare’s nearby, but wherefore? **
13. Thirteen is a saint, and a visionary too, **
MARION DIAMOND (Galadriel): Fourteen is a maid, and a gemstone most true.
15. Fifteen: Eighties game, plus a bounder and measure, **

17. For seventeen, no spade? Petrified, but not dead!
JENNY LEE (Shelob): Eighteen, (flag the sixth), Attercop! Poison-head!

You *are* on a roll, but a very brief explanation of the answers would be nice.

No to Matthew Vine.

I hadn't heard of a foundling named Thorne.

Think of a Dickensian foundling.

I am re-watching the hilarious 80's dramatisation of Tom Sharpe's 'Blott on the Landscape.' Simon Cadell is wonderful in it. He died tragically young. Celeborn in the BBC LOTR, but probably best known for playing Geoffrey Fairbrother in the holiday camp sitcom 'Hi De Hi.'

MICHAEL HORDERN (Gandalf): The first – an archangel – who’s guarding a vase?
IAN HOLM (Frodo): The second – spends more than an age at his house?
CHRISTOPHER FAIRBANK (Shagrat): The third graced our screens in ‘Auf Wiedersehen, Pet!’
ROBERT STEPHENS (Aragorn): The fourth was a Prince on a Veronese set.
OZ CLARKE (Singer): The fifth, though no hobbit, loves victuals and drink,
PAULINE LETTS (Ioreth): The sixth – Walford matriarch allows us – I think!
HUGH DICKSON (Elrond): The seventh played quack to Ross Poldark’s old flame -
JOHN MCANDREW (Pippin): The eighth, (flag the second), definitive Thain!*
LEONARD FENTON (Daddy Twofoot): The ninth, (flag the fourth), a Walfordian quack -
ELIN JENKINS (Eowyn): The tenth – Tucker’s sister? (Once a river flows back).

THEME: THE BBC 'LORD OF THE RINGS' RADIO DRAMATISATION.

Oz Clarke now presents a programme called 'Food and Drink.' At least, when I say 'now,' I mean the last I heard, he was still the host and the programme was still running.

Two to go!

EDIT: One to go now!

I do understand jokes, when I understand their context! Just asking you to explain the connection, that's all.

Ah.

The remaining answer is the sibilant genius.
