the tardis crew

The Doctor travels in his trusty Tardis with three companions in this tale; Bradley, Phillip and Amber. Bradley takes the lead in the early part of the story as we see the Doctor struggling with his confused memories. Phillip seems more understanding, and gradually we see why the third companion Amber is no longer travelling with them.

The Tardis crew react to the events around them - or do they?

The Doctor

Tony Garner plays the "Two and a halfth Doctor". His resemblance to both Patrick Troughton and Jon Pertwee is something of a bonus, and certainly one of the reasons the story was written as it was. If you can't see the resemblance then wait until you see the regeneration scenes..!!!

Tony is an "amateur-dramatics" actor - he has appeared in many productions by the Saltdean Amateur Dramatic Society near Brighton, Sussex.

Hugh Lloyd

Hugh Lloyd (MBE) played the part of the Scribe - a Timelord official.

The Scribe is a quiet man, and only speaks when he is spoken to. Wielding the Quill he holds immense power, and in conjunction with the Voix he meets the Doctor at an opportune moment!

section: 

Bradley / Auriga

The Doctor's assistant Bradley is played by one of the writers; David Clarke. As with Tony Garner he's a keen amateur actor, having been in many local productions in the Hove area over the years.

Not all is what it seems however with Bradley. He and Phillip may not be who we think they are...

Here he is with the Doctor, exploring the dome

Peter Tuddenham

Peter Tuddenham played half of the Timelord double act from episode six - Voix

 

Voix is the voice - appropriate, since Peter is essentially a voice artist. Heard in many classic BBC Doctor Who stories he is better known for his portrayal of Orac and Zen in Blake's 7.

Whilst we were working with him he regaled us with tales of working at Glyndebourne as a voice coach for a new opera where the cast were required to sing in a Suffolk accent of all things!

section: 

Aturo / Villager

The part of an itinerant villager seen briefly in the Imberhorne scene is played by Arthur Harrod, another long time Dr Who fan and early leader of the BADWAS (Brighton Area Dr Who Appreciation Society). Like Stephen he was subjected to the indignity of wearing an awful wig for this brief role - hence his nickname "Wiggy" (that scene only).

section: 

Chaldar / Imberhorne

Chaldar the Time Lord politician / official is a stuffy argumentative pompous individual, and meets his just desserts during the latter parts of the film. As one of Callisto's benefactors he is forced to play another character for the Doctor's memories, and so turns up as the argumentative pompous Village leader Imberhorne.

 

Both are played with stuffy pomposity by the stuffy pompous (very) amateur actor, co-writer, set-builder Ashley.

 

 

section: 

Covellitor / Villager

When not in an (unflattering / fetching - delete as appropriate) wig and tartan playing a Village Leader and warrior, Stephen Cranford plays the Time Lord official 'The Covellitor'

Charged with ensuring the test goes to plan, he becomes increasingly nervous about the turn of events. Finally, as the pilot of the second Tardis, he is forced to take evasive manoeuvres to try to keep the team alive after they are attacked by the twisted character Auriga.

section: 

Aquilia the Observer

Heather Miller (nee Cohen) plays Aquilia the Observer. Sent by the TimeLords to watch the progress of the Doctor's test. Watching from afar using binoculars she herself realises she is being watched. Stalked by something rather unpleasant in fact.
