The Watcher’s Fiendishly Festive...

CONNECTIONS

1 They belong to the select club of characters who have climbed inside a Dalek casing (The Witch’s Familiar; The Escape and The Ambush; The Dimensions of Time; Planet of the Daleks).

2 They both concern much-loved Oliver Postgate TV shows (in The Girl Who Died, the Doctor dubs one of the villagers ‘Noggin the Nog’; the Master watches Clangers in The Sea Devils).

3 They have all appeared in Doctor Who before and after officially changing their professional acting names. Jenna Coleman started off as Jenna-Louise Coleman; Simon Paisley Day (Rump in Face the Raven) was previously Simon Day (Steward in The End of the World); Mitzi McKenzie (Nancy in The Green Death) was previously Mitzi Webster (Jane Leeson in Colony in Space); John Wills (a Cyberman in The Moonbase) was previously John Maxim (Frankenstein’s Monster in The Chase); and veteran Dalek Operator Murphy Grumbar started off as Peter Murphy in the first couple of Dalek serials.

4 Okay, this one is seriously obscure – so, as Richard Osman would say on Pointless, very well done if you got it at home. The answer is that the actors who played them have all stood as parliamentary candidates in UK elections – and for an interesting variety of parties. Richard Franklin (Mike Yates) has worn a number of rosettes over the years, including those of the Liberal Democrats (1992), the Referendum Party (1997), UKIP (2001), and his own Silent Majority Party (2005); David Webb (Eric Leeson in Colony in Space) was a staunch libertarian who stood as an independent freedom of expression candidate against Margaret Thatcher in her Finchley constituency in 1983; Ralph Arliss (Tuar in Planet of the Spiders) stood for the Green Party in 2005; Brian McDermott (Sheard in Time-Flight) was another of 2001’s Ukippers; and the recently deceased Terence Denville (a Cyberman extra in The Invasion) stood on several occasions in the 1970s and 80s for the fascist National Front Party, which wasn’t very nice of him.
