Actors from a programme appearing in another

Spurred on from the "Crossovers" and "Same Character, Different Programme" threads I thought about at least two actors in a programme appearing in another, say as guests. Not to include spin off programmes. Some examples come to mind, perhaps you can add others?

Dennis Waterman and Stephanie Turner: Brother and sister in, "Special Branch", husband and wife in, "The Sweeney".

Patrick Troughton and Colin Douglas: "Dr Who- The Enemy of the World" and "A Family At War"

Colin Douglas and Coral Atkins: "A Family At War" and "The Sweeney-Contact Breaker" (didn't appear together in the latter)

Dennis Waterman and George Cole: "The Sweeney-Tomorrow Man" and "Minder

John Alderton and Pauline Collins- "Upstairs Downstairs" and "No Honestly"

Just some that come to my mind.

Just remembered the early '60s film, "This is My Street" which featured Mike Pratt and Annette Andre who of course appeared in "Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased)"

The "David Croft Repertory Company" (Paul Shane, Jeffrey Holland, Su Pollard et al.) in Hi-de-Hi!, You Rang, M'Lord?, Oh! Doctor Beeching, etc. (Were Donald Hewlett and Michael Knowles joined at the hip?)

A less obvious one: David Jason appearing as Blanco alongside Ronnie Barker in Porridge before they went on to make Open All Hours, the age gap being interestingly reversed!

In a similar vein, Rik Mayal and Adrian Edmonson (The Young Ones, Bottom) and add Nigel Planer (The Young Ones, Filthy Rich and Catflap). As a further add on, include The Comic Strip Presents for all of them.

I'm not sure if this counts as I don't recall that they shared screen time together, but Doctor Who's Kinda featured both Simon Rouse and Jeff Stewart who both went on to have long standing roles in The Bill.

Probably bound to happen as both actors seem to be in everything at the moment:

Nicola Walker and Mark Bonnar both appeared in the second series of Unforgotten and they are also in Big Finish's Eighth Doctor adventures Doom Coalition and Ravenous.

Also Martin Miller (Kublai Khan) was in that one, a mini-"Doctor Who" Convention.

Although they weren't in the same scenes, Roger Delgado and Clive Morton in a "Virgin Of The Secret Service" episode, and of course the "Who" serial "The Sea Devils", several years later.

In the same serial, Clive Morton and Royston Tickner, and then two years later in "Rogue's Rock".

Corinne Skinner-Carter and Rudolph Walker both appeared as husband and wife in a 1993 episode of Lovejoy and then cropped up again as the separated couple Audrey and Patrick Trueman in Eastenders.

Dianne Parish was also in the episode of Lovejoy and related to them in some way during their Eastenders stint.

Talking of "Eastenders", Rudolph Walker teamed up with Kate Williams for a while, having previously appeared together in "love Thy Neighbour" of course.

Mention of Rudolph Walker - he was in Doctor Who: The War Games with Leslie Schofield, who also popped up in Eastenders as a regular. Not sure if they shared any screen time though.
