I'd like to establish the common name for Scottish actor Dave/David Anderson. The raw CLT numbers are useless, as they're thrown off by, among others, the American actor with the same name ('Close Encounters of the Third Kind') and the times where make-up artist David LeRoy Anderson is credited without his middle name. The spread for the Scottish actor seems to be like this:

DAVID ANDERSON (9 titles, 9 confirmed)
- Doctor Who: The Aztecs (confirmed by SoylentDave)
- Doctor Who: Lost in Time (confirmed by SoylentDave)
- Doctor Who: The Time Meddler (confirmed by SoylentDave)
- The Avengers (ep. 'Build a Better Mousetrap') (confirmed by T!M)
- Gregory's Girl (confirmed by T!M)
- Local Hero (confirmed by T!M)
- Rebus (confirmed by SoylentDave)
- A Sense of Freedom (confirmed by AiAustria)
- Up Pompeii (confirmed by SoylentDave)

DAVE ANDERSON (9 titles, 8 confirmed)
- Monarch of the Glen: Series 5 (confirmed by AiAustria)
- The Omega Factor (confirmed by SoylentDave)
- Orphans (confirmed by SoylentDave)
- Postmortem (confirmed by SoylentDave)
- Rab C Nesbitt: The Complete Series 1 (confirmed by SoylentDave)
- Restless Natives (confirmed by AiAustria)
- Soldier Soldier: The Complete Sixth Series
- Taggart (ep. 'Knife Edge ') (confirmed by SoylentDave)
- Tutti Frutti (confirmed by T!M)

It would still be nice to have 'Soldier Soldier confirmed, but with 9 titles for each name variant, this seems like a tie. With the larger number of profiles acting as the tiebreaker, thanks to fairly popular titles like 'Gregory's Girl', 'Local Hero' and 'Doctor Who', David Anderson wins out here.
