Tony Caunter

  1. Stephen Yardley, Doctor Who # 138: Vengeance on Varos, TV, 1984.        Not quite matching the Lifeforce movie’s 203 candidates for 18 roles that year but as many as 58 guys were seen for just three roles in this Doc6 Colin Baker episode – the majority being Lifeforcers! (They did not share the same casting director, so how did Cannon get hold of the Whoverse lists?) For example, there were 19 contenders for Arak… Caunter, Yardley, Alun Armstrong, Nicholas Ball, Jim Broadbent, Andrew Burt, Tom Chadbon, Peter Childs, Kenneth Cope, Paul Darrow, Tom Georgeson, John Hallam, Brian Miller, Tony Osoba, Edward Peel, Carl Rigg, Colin Scully, Donald Sumpter, Dave Warwick.  
  2. Forbes Collins, Doctor Who #138: Vengeance on Varos, TV, 1984.      Caunter was also among the 20 names rung up the flagpole for the treacherous Chief Officer, alongside Collins, Tom Chadbon, Peter Childs, Michael Culver, James Ellis, Tom Georgeson, John Hallam, Terrence Hardiman, Don Henderson, John Hollis, Ronald Lacey, Edward Peel, Clifford Rose, John Savident, George Sewell, Patrick Stewart, Donald Sumpter, Malcolm Tierney – and Stephen Yardley, who played Arak. Caunter, an EastEnders star (565 episodes) appeared in three Time Lord trips, 1965-1983: #14: The Crusade, #58: Colony in Space and #127: Enlightenment.
