Doctor Who / The Avengers (Tara King-era) Actor Connections

Lately, I’ve been going through some other movies and shows and finding where there are actors or creative talent that they have in common with Doctor Who.

Also recently, I finished going through all the “Emma Peel” episodes of the 1960s TV show The Avengers and blogging about each one (starting here), including noting when its guest cast were also people who made appearances in Doctor Who. I was struck by how much crossover there was.

If I was an unscrupulous Time Lord with the ability to travel through the fourth dimension and to try to affect changes that I thought would make things better, there’s probably a bunch of stuff I’d do with my favorite TV series, Doctor Who.  Like many-a-fan (I assume), I’ve thought of these things from time to time, and I now I’m going to list them over a series of posts.

Blake’s 7–the Doctor Who Connections (Part 2–the Actors)

In thinking about the TV show Blake’s 7 recently (for reasons that will be coming up soon), I’ve been noting how many connections there are between that British science fiction series and another one that we all know and love, Doctor Who.

I’ve talked about meeting both Matthew Waterhouse and Sarah Sutton at my first two Doctor Who-related conventions in New York City. The archival evidence (my autograph book) seems to suggest that my next convention visit was in Philadelphia, where amongst other, I met Carole Ann Ford.
