He was thought by many to portray Dr. Watson with an excellent style. He played Dr. Watson in the adventures of Sherlock Holmes for two series. He was replaced by Edward Hardwicke at his own recommendation, because he did not want to be typecast. Other notable TV appearances include his turn as Joseph Stalin in the British serial Reilly, Ace of Spies and the John Wyndham science fiction story Random Quest. He also played William Morris in the 1975 series The Love School. Burke frequently portrays Johannes Coenradus Klene in the Dutch commercials for Klene liquorice.
