Derek has notched up eight appearances in Doctor Who, as an extra, stuntman and most significantly as Mitchell in the classic 1977 story Image of the Fendahl. (His other Doctor Who's were The Romans, The Massacre, The Highlanders, The Web of Fear, Inferno, The Mind of Evil and The Claws of Axos.) Derek has also starred in the films: Piggy Bank [1997] and Boston Kick Out [1994].


Nicolette Roeg


Nicolette starred in many West End Musicals before she turned her attention to television. Her most celebrated stage performance was as Nancy in the 1966 production of Oliver!. Jon Pertwee was also in the cast as Fagin. This performance can be heard on LP. Other LPs featuring Nicolette include The Pajama Game, in which she sings 'Hernando's Hideaway', Belle and Two Cities. [Nicolette is pictured, below left, during her musical heyday].

Some of her TV and Film credits include:

Paul Seed


Paul Seed went on to play the villainous Graff Vynda K in
Doctor Who: The Ribos Operation [see below] the following year. During the rehearsal period for this story, it was actually Paul's dog that bit Tom Baker's face. Tom's 'wound' can be clearly seen in this and the following story, The Pirate Planet. Paul gave up acting pretty soon after he started out and become an accomplished TV director instead. Some of his directing credits (many of which are for award winning series) include: House of Cards, To Play the King, Murder Rooms, Playing the Field, A Rather English Marriage and A Touch of Frost.
