Myfanwy Talog (Welsh pronunciation: [məˈvanuɨ ˈtalɔɡ]) (born Myfanwy Talog Williams; 31 March 1944 – 11 March 1995)[1][2] was a Welsh actress, best known to the media as the long-term partner of Sir David Jason.


Personal life

She was born in Caerwys, Flintshire, where a plaque can now be seen on the house where she was born. She worked as a teacher before taking up an acting career, and appeared mainly on Welsh language television, in comedy and children's programmes. For audiences in Wales she was forever associated with the character of Phyllis Doris, which she played in the series Ryan and Ronnie. She later appeared in several English-language sitcoms and soap operas. She lived with David Jason for eighteen years until her death, and accompanied him to Buckingham Palace in 1993 to receive his OBE.


On television, Talog narrated Will Quack Quack and voiced The Two Girls in the SuperTed episode, SuperTed and the Pothole Rescue for S4C and Siriol Productions. She also did voices on Alias the Jester and The BFG (with David Jason voicing the BFG) for Cosgrove Hall. She also sang the theme tune to DangerMouse, which was narrated by David Jason.
