Cerys shares my affection and fascination for Al Dixon's Walter...
He was absolutely great and a real '80s cult. As he didn't appear in the credits, I'm finding it impossible to map his reign in terms of episode numbers. Do you have the info?
Al Dixon did occasionally appear in the closing credits, Cerys, but not often as he was non-speaking! The production team occasionally allowed his inclusion if Walter had featured prominently in the episode.
Al Dixon first gave us Walter in episode 597, broadcast in September 1980. The synopsis was:
Beckindale's eerie Bogle Bog is definitely not the place to be stranded in the dead of night - but that's exactly where Amos Brearly finds himself!
The episode was written by the show's creator, Kevin Laffan.

Walter made his final appearance in episode 1011, broadcast in December 1985:
It's the day of the village show and Amos Brearly is ready for stardom. But a night of celebration turns sour for Jackie Merrick.
The episode was written by Michael Russell.
Walter appeared in the village show, which was Toad Of Toad Hall.
