Peter Woodthorpe (25 September 1931 – 12 August 2004) was an English film, television and voice actor who supplied the voice of Gollum in the 1978 Bakshi version of The Lord of the Rings and BBC's 1981 radio serial. He also provided the voice of Pigsy in the cult series Monkey and was Max the pathologist in early episodes of Inspector Morse.In the summer of 1955 he played Estragon in the first British production of Waiting for Godot. He had then just finished his second year at Magdalene College, Cambridge, and expected to return after a run of a few weeks. When the play was successful, faced with the choice of dropping out either from Cambridge or from the play, he chose to stay with the play and his acting career. In 1960, he played Aston in the first production of Harold Pinter's The Caretaker at the Arts Theatre, in London, prior to transferring to the West End's Duchess Theatre on 30 May 1960. He also starred as Oxford in the Broadway musical Darling of the Day .Before going up to Cambridge he served as a national serviceman in the Royal Navy, training at the Joint Services School for Linguists as a Russian interpreter.In 1964 and 1965 he made three films for cinematographer-turned-director Freddie Francis: The Evil of Frankenstein (1964), Hysteria (1965) and The Skull (1965), the first two for Hammer Films and the last for Amicus Productions. His characters in these films were all sleazy, corrupt and manipulative types (a hypnotist, a nudie photographer and a corrupt landlord).In 1974, he played writer Honoré de Balzac in the BBC series Notorious Woman.One of Woodthorpe's best remembered roles was the guest role of Reg Trotter, father of Del Boy in the 1983 Christmas special, "Thicker than Water", an episode of the BBC sitcom, Only Fools and Horses. In 1984, he and Lennard Pearce (who starred on the programme as Grandad Trotter, Reg's father, and appeared alongside him in that episode) were seen together again in an episode of Minder (TV series) titled The Balance of Power.

#Fact
1He and Brother Theodore have both played Gollum twice. Theodore played the role in The Hobbit (1977), while Woodthorpe played him in The Lord of the Rings (1978). This incomplete adaptation sparked two other adaptations: the animated The Return of the King (1980), in which Theodore reprised the role; and the BBC radio production, in which Woodthorpe reprised the role. Theodore played the role opposite Orson Bean, who played Frodo, but had previously played Bilbo in The Hobbit. Woodthorpe played the role opposite Ian Holm, who played Frodo, and would go on to play Bilbo in Peter Jackson's films.
2Played Gollum in both The Lord of the Rings (1978) as well as in the Lord of the Rings BBC radio production.
