Posted Yesterday, 11:34 AM

Further to the discussion I had in an entirely inappropriate thread on Doctor Who vs Wrestling in the Death List.

 

Although there have only been two Doctor Who hits I thought I would check how many actual picks had a Doctor Who credit to their name

 

The list is surprisingly short

 

  • Anna Wing
  • Peter Sallis
  • Michael Gough
  • Nicholas Parsons
  • Patrick Moore
  • Geoffrey Hughes
  • Kenneth Kendall
  • Joan Sims
  • Jon Pertwee
  • William Hartnell (already dead when picked)
  • Beryl Reid

You could also add Roy Castle and Peter Cushing.

 

I only have two DW alumni in my Shadow list this year.

Clifford Earl (born Ken Earl), who appeared twice in Doctor Who, Station Sergeant in The Daleks' Master Plan and Major Branwell in The Invasion, 81. http://tobyhadoke.co...-1933-2015-rip/

 

Seems to have been a go-to actor for police roles, was also in the TV version of Bootsie and Snudge, Danger Man, The Avengers, Softly Softly and so on.

omg for a minute I thought ud said Earl Cameron had died !

Robin Phillips, UK born director and actor has died at the age of 73. http://www.cbc.ca/ne...at-73-1.3168217

 

He appeared in episodes of The Avengers and The Saint, but Dr Who fans will know him best playing the part of Altos in the First Doctor story, The Keys Of Marinus.

another Dr Who actor Aubrey Morris  has died at 89 http://www.theguardi..._source=dlvr.it

What role did he play in Doctor Who?? I can't find his credit on Dr Who on his IMDB page, nor place him in any serial.
He appeared in the series in 1967. He played Padmasambhava in episodes 2 to 6 in the story The abominable Snowmen
  

Wasn't him.....his brother...

Maybe you are getting him confused with Aubrey Woods who was the Controller in Day of the Daleks and appeared in the Blake's 7 episode Gambit.
 
He died a while ago.


"His brother"..... Coff.

He was in Babylon 5 and he was famously the Captain in the Bath  in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (TV)

 

 

He was also in the Ripping Yarns episode of "Curse of The Claw" as Grosvenor the Butler. But in terms of Sci-Fi shows he was also in an episode of Space: 1999
