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!

Hugh Lloyd was a famous, talented and a lovely man to work with. With his own comedy series with Terry Scott ("Hugh and I") in 1962 and his appearances in Tony Hancock's Half Hour he has warmed the hearts of many of us over the years. With serious roles amongst the comedy he is still regularly found on our screens. One of his later roles playing a cleric in a film released not long back seemed rather close to his cameo role in Devious! - he was happy to play the role of Scribe for us - indeed the part was always written with him in mind!

Sadly Hugh has recently passed away. His inclusion on the War Games in an edited version of his scene playing Scribe along with Voix was something we had hoped for. Look out for the bit where he wipes the table - with a proper dusting cloth - like he was expecting it...

'ere - he's nicked my wine gums...

Hugh received an MBE in the New Year's Honours List 2005

Hugh's film and tv roles include...

Chica de R?o (2001), "Oliver Twist" (1999) (mini TV Series),Great Expectations (1999) (TV),Alice in Wonderland (1999) (TV),Cider with Rosie (1998) (TV),Quadrophenia (1979),"Lollipop Loves Mr Mole" (1971) (TV Series), "Gnomes of Dulwich, The" (1969) (TV Series), Punch and Judy Man, The (1963), "Hugh and I" (1962) (TV Series), "Hancock's Half Hour" (1956)
