BERNARD HOLLEY - DOCTOR WHO
First airing in 1963, 'Doctor Who' soon became a British Institution, initially running for 26 years, the adventures of the Timelord from Gallifrey, travelling through time and space in his TARDIS, became seminal viewing for millions of viewers. In 2005, it made an unbelievable return to our screens, and continues to enthrall viewers of generations old and new.
Bernard Holley's association with 'Doctor Who' began in 1967, with one of his first television roles, as Peter Haydon in the classic Patrick Troughton story 'Tomb of the Cybermen'. He later returned to the series to star as The Axon Man (and the voice of Axos itself) in the Jon Pertwee 4-part story 'The Claws of Axos'. Bernard was interviewed for Special Features on both Special Edition DVD releases of the stories in 2012.
In 2006, Bernard's association with the show continued when he was cast as Marvin Glass in the audio drama 'The Worst Thing in The World', part of the Bernice Summerfield spin-off series, by Big Finish Productions. In 2011, 40 years after he first played the part, Bernard reprised his role as Axos in the new 'Doctor Who' audio drama 'The Feast of Axos', starring Colin Baker. He was then cast as Brother Phaedrus in the 2012 adventure 'Love and War', opposite Sylvester McCoy. He continues to be a welcome guest at 'Doctor Who' conventions and guest signings.
