Fame in a Name

A Puzzle by Eddie Sedgemore

This is based loosely on word-pairing competitions that have been in past issues of Quo Vadis?, the difference being that two clues will give an Association member's surname. All answers are members mentioned in the Spring 2015 issue of Quo Vadis? I was going to have an odd name out but I don't think that would be fair to that Association member!

Winners will be announced in the next issue. Enjoy! 

a/ "A Question Of Sport" team captain 
b/ An elderly monarch 
c/ He played the part of an archaeologist in a series of films
