Maurice Roëves

  1. Chris Sullivan, Lifeforce, 1984.
  2. John Hallam, Lifeforce, 1984.
  3. Maurice Colbourne, Doctor Who #133: Resurrection Of The Daleks, TV, 1984.     Aunty wanted a name for Commander Lytton… like Roëves. Meg Bennett, Brian Blessed, Kenneth Cope, Timothy Dalton   (the future Lord President in #202: The End of Time, 2000), Leslie Grantham (not yet Dirty Den in EastEnders), Alfred Lynch, Clive Merrison (BBC Radio’s Sherlock Holmes), Terry Molloy (aka Davros), John Rhys-Davies. Plus several of the astonishing army of 203 candidates for just 18 roles in that year’s Lifeforce movie mess: Nicholas Ball, Steven Berkoff, Tom Chadbon, Paul Darrow, Michael Gothard, Don Henderson, Del Henney (he became Colonel Archer), Martin Jarvis, Michael Jayston, Edward Peel, George Sewell, Patrick Stewart, Anthony Valentine and David Warner. All 25 up for one role in a Doctor Who… Preposterous! Roëves entered the Whoverse as Stotz in #135: The Caves of Androzani, 1984, as Doc5 Peter Davison regenerated into Doc6 Colin Baker.
