The door on the rear passenger side of my BA refuses to lock...it makes a loud clicking noise but doesnt lock, all the other doors do. Will it be a dead actuator, or something else?

Yep, it'll be a dead actuator.
Mymates had been like that for a while. The car would lock except for that door, even though it makes the sound.
I think its something to do with a plastic mechanism in the actuator itself, that s**t itself.

The BA and territory door locks are a common problem, they always stuff up, if your cars under warrenty no problem but if not i think its about $135 for a new one

the new ones do have a steel insert in the plastic that breaks so it shouldnt happen again.
