Remembering Regular Doctor Who Guest Actor Philip Madoc

Philip Madoc in The Brain of Morbius

The late, great Philip Madoc is the core of our Kasterborous podKast (with a “K”) this week, as we discuss his appearances in The Krotons, The War Games, The Brain of Morbius and The Power of Kroll.

Probably best known as the War Lord or Mehendri Solon, Madoc also appeared in the second Dalek movie, Daleks – Invasion Earth 2150 AD in 1966.

Sadly Madoc, born in Merthyr Tydfil, Wales passed away at the weekend following a short illness, aged 77. Born in 1934 he had a career stretching over 50 years and was one of the most compelling British character actors of his generation. There is barely a famous TV show from the 1960s and 1970s that he didn’t appear in.

You can find out more thanks to BBC News; our typed obituary will appear later on but in the meantime you can find more information about his long and varied career below.
