Playing the exiled Spanish bartender in that sitcom, Montez was memorable for his thick, brown hair and Zapata moustache.

The sensible thing to do with Bettany Hughes is to keep saying to yourself "She's not really smiling at me... she's not really smiling at me". She does smile very winningly, you see, and given that television has the trick of making you think you're the only person in the room anyway, it would be very easy to lose a sense of perspective, particularly since she's considerably more attractive than the average ancient historian. If a real person was talking you like this – eyes sparkling, corners of the mouth crinkling uncontrollably halfway through perfectly routine sentences – you might reasonably conclude that they had a bit of a crush on you. For those reasons, I imagine that she's a bit of a magnet for the less stable viewer, and she won't have done anything to diminish the nutcase ratio in her postbag by taking on the subject of Atlantis, which for the past 100 years or so has been like a lightbulb on a hot summer night, barely visible for the swarm of conspiracists plinking and bouncing off its surface. Lonely classicists may have been in trouble too. The sequence in which Hughes fluttered her eyelashes at the camera and waved around a heavily annotated Loeb edition of Plato's Timaeus and Critias looked like some kind of very high-minded erotica.
