Richard Dawson had already made a name for himself on the ludicrous “Hogan’s Heroes.” Before contract disputes soured his mood in the last years of “Match Game,” Dawson delighted to no end.
Miller goes on to argue that Dawson possesses an unusual and unhealthy sway over the contestants — they know how sophisticated he is, they know the potential bite of his silver tongue and they will do anything to prevent his ire, including permitting the obligatory kisses of their womenfolk.
Miller wrongly assumes that Dawson’s sangfroid is akin to the cheap irony of Letterman and Carson; for him, Dawson is a bullying arbiter of televisual cool, at once indulging and mocking the unhip enthusiasm of the contestants.

Dawson follows fellow off-spinners Graeme Swann (1999 to South Africa) and Jason Brown (2001 to Sri Lanka) into an England tour party after playing just 10 first-class games.
But he contributed 30 wickets in nine games to Yorkshire's first County Championship success for 33 years and hopes are high that he will rise to the challenge of bowling in the sub-continent, where the only spinners to thrive are those of genuine ability.
India was seen as the ideal environment to continue his cricketing education and he responded by taking a creditable six wickets in the series, including a four-wicket haul on debut.

A silk shirt in an empty English cupboard, Richard Dawson helped bowl Yorkshire to their first Championship since 1968, and at just 21 was chosen for England's 2001-02 tours to India and New Zealand.
An accurate, attacking bowler with a dainty, high-stepping action reminiscent of Peter Such, Dawson flights the ball well, and extracts plenty of turn, grips the turf and uses his height to conjure some hearty bounce.
Handy in the outfield as well, he is multi-dimensional enough to make more of a mark than England's last two wet-nursed offspinners, Jason Brown and Graeme Swann, and in 2004, he was named in England's 30-man pool of players for that season's Champions Trophy.
