Cricket commentator for BBC? RadioFour? (the TMS? longwave edition), who is delightfully insane.  Now retired. He spends as much time talking about Pigeons, the colour of the local Bus?es and what he's going to have for tea as he does on the cricket match he's commentating on.
Not to be confused with the villain from James Bond?
"Do you expect me to talk?"
"No, Mr. Bond, I expect you to eat one of Mrs. Worthington's delicious cream cakes"
Actually, I learnt from his appearance on DesertIslandDiscs? that IanFleming? was at school with HenryBlofeld's father, and later was a member of the same London club as father and the two Blofeld sons. Apparently, Fleming didn't get on with them very well, and when trying to find a name for the central baddie in his Bond books read down the list of members at the club - stopping when he hit Blofeld.

To be fair, there's a lot of downtime in Cricket, to be filled with meandering chat.  There's only so many times you can say "And he threw the ball... and oh!  He narrowly nudged it to one side.  And now they've gone in for a spot of tea."  --Vitenka
