    When I was in P7 (2000/2001) they showed us this educational video where Craig Charles goes on a ghost Train and uses a thesaurus to learn different scary words.
    It was definitely him but the character he played was called “Dean Craig” or something like that.
    I can find no record of him being in this video online.
    Does anybody else remember it?

    The only non-archived Craig Charles thing I can recall is him being sent to interview some people involved in Star Trek: Insurrection for some BBC film programme in 1998/99. Specifically the part where he pretended to beam up by tapping his chest before they put an effect on, while pulling this exaggerated face of disdain like he’s really above this Star Trek crap he keeps being paid to do.

    He kept making digs at Coronation Street in the season 1 commentary then went in to star in it for 10 years.

    That’s nothing; he ripped the piss out of Red Dwarf fans for the first fifteen years he was involved in the show.

    Wiki says in 1997 he was in a schools education series called “English Express Language Skills”. Videos aren’t there but:

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b036k14r The description for this is “A visit to a haunted house in search of words to express fear.”

    And one here https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0077vld “Craig Charles explores how choosing and using words helps conjure up images in people’s minds.”. Clip on there of Craig reading a poem.

    Ah thanks Stephen
    I’d been strongly suspecting the Mandela Effect

    Now I’m wondering whether I dreamed the Star Trek thing, since you’d think there would be some record of that and I can’t even remember what happened outside of the introduction (V/O “We sent Craig Charles to [‘boldly go’, etc]…”, Craig standing in some random street for an afterthought pick-up shot going along with the director’s inane request, disappears in rubbish sub-Red Dwarf wibble effect).

    Posted at 5:45 am, it really was too early for that Star Trek crap!

    His wriggling worm mime in Parallel Universe is a lot better than the one he does in that clip.
