Wendy was cast as the second Doctor's companion Zoe Heriot in 1968, first appearing in the season five finale 'The Wheel In Space'. She remained on the show until 'The War Games' the following year, electing to depart with co-stars Patrick Troughton and Frazer Hines. Her other TV appearances included 'Crossroads', 'Freewheelers' and 'Emmerdale Farm'. A role in the 1971 cult British horror film, 'The Blood On Satan's Claw' was followed three years later by an appearance in the London stage play, 'Doctor Who And The Daleks In The Seven Keys To Doomsday'.
Son of Patrick, Michael started his career as an Assistant Stage Manager at the Arts Theatre in London. He has appeared in numerous film and television roles, most notably in 'The New Statesman' 'Minder' and 'Lucy Sullivan Is Getting Married'. He took five years out from acting to teach physics and drama at the secondary school level and in 2011 wrote a biography of his father. He appeared in the 2014 'Doctor Who' Christmas Special 'Last Christmas' as Professor Albert and now regularly features in audio dramas for Big Finish.
Joining the show as a make-up assistant on 'The Savages' starring William Hartnell, Sylvia clocked up 13 Patrick Troughton stories as a make-up designer between 1967 and 1969. She also worked on classic episodes featuring Jon Pertwee and Tom Baker, including 'The Sea Devils' and 'Genesis Of The Daleks' - most notably moulding the latex mask to Michael Wisher's Davros. Sylvia's other TV credits include 'Steptoe And Son, 'Porridge' and 'Poldark'.
Catherine played Ara in the early Patrick Troughton serial 'The Underwater Menace'. Other TV appearances included 'Z-Cars', The Wednesday Play' and 'Dixon Of Dock Green' and in the movie 'Private Road' alongside Susan Penhaligon. During the 1970's Catherine went on to feature on soundtrack recordings in the UK and Europe. The title track of her second Folk album 'Harry' received an Ivor Novello Award. She now writes history books - her latest being a study of the Theatre Girls Club at 59 Greek Street in London's Soho district.
Kevork appeared as Kemel Rudkin, an ill-fated technician in 'The Wheel In Space'. His film roles include the academy award-winning prison drama, 'Midnight Express', 'Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade' and 'Taken 2'.
