Death of a War Lord
The Welsh actor, Philip Madoc, died on 5th March 2012. Madoc is most well known among Who fans for his role as the War Lord in final Troughton story, The War Games. He also appeared alongside Tom Baker in the classic Brain Of Morbius as Solon. Less well known are his appearances in the Krotons (Eelek) and the Power of Kroll (Fenner). He also appeared in the film 'Daleks: Invasion Earth 2150 A.D.', making him (along with Bernard Cribbins) one of the few actors to appear in both the TV series and the film spin-offs. He also appeared in the Big Finish audio dramas Master and Return of the Krotons.
Read more about Philip's life in his obituary in The Independent.
There's a great series of pages on his roles in Who here.
The Whoniverse just got smaller.
More to the point, what's it all about? Me? Well no, not really. (OK, just a bit) But Who. Who? Doctor Who. What? No, not Doctor What, although he's here somewhere as well (or will be). Doctor Who, the typically British and uniquely odd BBC TV time-travelling series, which started way back in 1963 and is still going strong today. Blending the old and the new, aiming to bring you all the stuff you didn't know and even the stuff you didn't know you needed to know... and more! And me? A mad manic megalomaniac... with a dash of delusional paranoia, the ups and downs of a flip-flop, oh, and a constant headache...
