Doctor Who stalwart Philip Madoc has died aged 77

I am very sad to announce that the legendary Philip Madoc died this morning aged 77. He was surrounded by friends and family and died of a short illness he had only had since January. He had a long illustrious career and appeared in several roles in Doctor Who including: Brockley in the theatrical film, Daleks' Invasion Earth 2050 A.D, and in the television programme as Eelek in The Krotons, The War Lord in The War Games, Solon in The Brain of Morbius and Fenner in The Power of Kroll.

As Eelek in The Krotons.
As The War Lord in The War Games.
As Solon in The Brain of Morbius.
As Fenner in The Power of Kroll. 
To me, he will always be one of the very best guest stars Doctor Who will ever see. He will be remembered by many for his wonderful, numerous and varied roles. One thing is for sure, the world is less one fantastic actor.

We loved Philip Madoc. His acting style was so Welsh and forthright, you never forgot it. He will be much missed.

I love the new blog design!
