William Marlowe

William Marlowe (25 July 1930 – February 2003) was a British theatre, television and film actor. He served in the Fleet Air Arm and hoped for a career as a writer before training as an actor at RADA. His most famous role was probably that of Chief Supt. Thomas in The Chief (1990). Other roles include Sir Guy of Gisbourne in The Legend of Robin Hood (1975), A Family at War (1970–72), DCI Bill Russell in The Gentle Touch (1980–84), and Harry Mailer in the Doctor Who serial The Mind of Evil (1971). He reappeared in Doctor Who four years later as Lester in Revenge of the Cybermen (1975). His guest star roles include Barlow at Large, Breakaway, Callan and Catch Hand. Both of Marlowe's wives have Doctor Who connections: He was married to Catherine Schell (City of Death) from 1968–1977 and Kismet Delgado, widow of Roger Delgado (Who 's The Master) from 1979-2003. Many books erroneously claim he was married to Fernanda Marlowe (Corporal Bell in The Mind of Evil and The Claws of Axos) at the time The Mind of Evil was filmed in 1971.
