Alastair went to school in Bruntisfield and to Gillespie's School, where his father was a JP and a governor of the school.
Alastair had a cameo as a phony medium duping a gullible old lady who is trying to communicate with the spirit of the father of Edward Everett Horton, a mild mannered and naive reverend who is the new secretary of a country squire.
