Roy Kinnear

  1. Aubrey Morris, Lifeforce, 1984.  
  2. Rodney Bewes, Doctor Who #133: Resurrection Of The Daleks, TV, 1984.       In the mix for Quartermaster Sergeant Stein with Meg Bennett and James Ellis – opposite Doc5 Peter Davison. Bewes made him different. With a stutter. D-d-d-didn’t help.
  3. John Stratton, Doctor Who #140: The Two Doctors, TV, 1985.     The two (?) Time Lords were Doc2 Patrick Troughton and Doc 6, the short lived Colin Baker. Shockeyes were more plentiful, 22 of them: Kinnear, Stratton, Joss Ackland, George Baker, Ian Bannen, Brian Blessed, Denholm Elliott, James Ellis, Frank Finlay, Ronald Fraser, Michael Gothard, Don Henderson, Donald Houston, Freddie Jones, Jeremy Kemp, Ronald Lacey, TP McKenna, Aubrey Morris, Donald Pleasence, Peter Sallis, George Sewell, Peter Vaughan.
  4. Clive Swift, Doctor Who #142: Revelation of the Daleks, 1985.       Swift won Jobel (unlike Kinnear or Ronald Lacey) but won a callback… some 22 years later… to be Mr Copper in the 2007 Christams special, #188 : Voyage of the Damned. Kinnear never did Whove – too husy with 162 roles (eight for his pal, director Richard Lester) during 1955-1991.  Roy tragically died in Madrid on September 20, 1988, after a horse-fall during Lester’s Return of the Three Musketeers. Lester never made another film.
