Patrick Mower

  1. George Lazenby, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, 1968.
  2. Barry Evans, Die Screaming Marianne, 1970.      Marianne was Susan George. wanted by schlocker Pete Walker the previous year for Cool It, Carol! Marianne is the victim of her father, another of Walker’s depraved Establishment figures. Barry Evans was the girl’s guy, when Walker’s other targets would have been stronger: Mower or Ian McShane. Greatposter though. Bardotesque!
  3. Keith Barron, The Land That Time Forgot, 1974.      Considered for an Edgar Rice Burroughs fable mixing Doug McClure, WWI German submarines and dinosaurs. Honestly
  4. Andrew Burt, Doctor Who #126: Terminus, TV, 1983.      Mower, Burt, Nicholas Ball, Tom Chabon, Paul Darrow, Michael Gothard, Del Henney, Bernard Hill, Patrick Stewart, Anthony Valentine, David Warner were in the Valgard mix – to join Doc5 Peter Davison at the Terminus space station which proves to be a leper colony. Now read on…
  5. Patrick Stewart, Lifeforce, 1984.
  6. Michael Gothard, Lifeforce, 1984.
  7. Aubrey Morris, Lifeforce, 1984.
  8. Nicholas Ball, Lifeforce, 1984.
  9. Chris Sullivan, Lifeforce, 1984.
  10. Tom Adams, Doctor Who #130: Warriors of The Deep, 1984.        Competing for Commander Vorshak in Doc5 Peter Davison’s finale were 13 of the army of 203 candidates for just 18 roles in that year’s Lifeforce movie mess: Mower, Steven Berkoff, Kenneth Colley, Michael Craig, Paul Darrow, Anton Diffring, Del Henney, Martin Jarvis, Ian McCulloch, Patrick Stewart, David Warner, Simon Williams and Peter Wyngarde. Plus three outsiders: Brian Blessed, Peter Gilmore, Gareth Hunt. The difference being Who was science fiction and Lifeforce was science fart.

  11. Del Henney, Doctor Who #133: Resurrection Of The Daleks, TV, 1984.       Mower was the first choice for Colonel Archer (opposite Doc5 Peter Davison) but Mower never met The Doctor in any of his 62 screen reles, during 1964- 2017.
  12. Paul Darrow, Doctor Who #141: Timelash, TV, 1985.       Mower, Darrow, Steven Berkoff, Andrew Burt, Tom Chadbon, Michael Gothard, Ronald Lacey and David Warner were in the frame for Tekker opposite Dic6 Colin Baker. Producer John Nathan-Turner suggested Darrow play Tekker like his Blakes 7 character, Avon. Darrow had a loftier notion. Richard III.
  13. William Gaunt, Doctor Who #142: Revelation of the Daleks, 1985.     For the second time, 25 actors were up for a single rôle… in Doctor flaming Who. How preposterous..! An unlikely choice for a mercenary, Gaunt was selected late in the game after an exhausting Orcini search through Joss Ackland, Ray Brooks, James Ellis, John Fraser, Peter Gilmore, Denis Lill, Philip Madoc, Peter Vaughan… Plus survivors of the Lifeforce brigade: Mower, Tom Adams, George Baker, John Carson, Frank Finlay, Julian Glover, Michael Gothard, Del Henney, Peter Jeffrey, TP McKenna, Clifford Rose, Patrick Stewart, Nigel Stock, Anthony Valentine, David Warner and Frank Windsor.
