As a young boy, he was evacuated from London during the Blitz, to the countryside near a military airfield, where he befriended American airmen. This led to a lifelong fascination with military aviation. As a young man, Quiney served as a radar operator in the Royal Air Force, and later in life he realized a dream of piloting a restored Supermarine Spitfire.
He is the husband of Ginnie Hole; screenwriter for The House of Elliot, Casualty, and many other television programmes.
A tall man with thick white hair, Quiney is frequently seen with his Border Collie Rex, on the heath or in Greenwich Park.
