I just got learnt some sad news today on the death of long time Dr Who stalwart and Dalek Operator John Scott Martin ..


Quote:
The Stage entertainment industry newspaper reports that actor John Scott Martin, veteran of countless roles in over one hundred episodes of the classic series of Doctor Who, died on January the 6th, at the age of eighty-two. His daughter Catriona has penned an obituary piece for the paper, outlining his career.

Martin is best remembered by fans as the main Dalek operator across the twenty-six years of the classic series, but he also played various other monsters opposite the first seven Doctors, and also had occasional more visible roles, such as the dead miner at the start of The Green Death. In 2004, he told BBC News how he would love to play a Dalek again for the new series.

In addition to his Doctor Who work, Martin appeared in BBC series such as Quatermass and the Pit and I, Claudius, as well as in films (including Little Shop of Horrors) and the theatre. In 2004, he appeared as the old man who inherits all of Swansea in the Russell T Davies comedy-drama serial Mine All Mine for ITV1.


I'll also never forget his small but wonderful role in Monty Python's the meaning of life.

RIP John Scott Martin..

This is really weird.

I've just this moment finished watching the "Genesis of a Classic" documentary from the Genesis of the Daleks DVD and was marvelling at John Scott Martin's refulgent hair.

RIP

It was probably RTD dismissing him out of hand from appearing in the new series as a Dalek again which did it.

John Scott Martin told BBC News how he would dearly and desperately love to play a Dalek again for the new series after loyally putting in over 26 years previous selfless service to the series.

What a cruel and heartless blow it must have come to the veteran "Lead Dalek Man" when RTD callously turned him bluntly down and dismissed him without a seconds thought.

I shouldn't think John Scott Martin ever fully recovered from the heavy heart-rending diminishing blow to his professional integrity and confidence and that's what eventually led to his demise, heart-broken, and neglected, his final dying wish never granted by those greedily wielding the power to do so.

RIP John Scott Martin - we shall never, ever forget....

A beautifully heartfelt and moving panegyric, Mr Filth.

Yes, we will never forget...

Did he phone you to tell you his final dying wish then? How do you know he was turned down "bluntly"?

I had a feeling that RTD would turn out to have been involved Laughing

I wouldn't be surprised if we ended up deciding that he was behind the Dyatlov Pass Incident.

Rob probably blames RTD for climate change and the conflict in Gaza! Laughing In truth Rob emits more hot air than anyone else on the planet. Laughing

It's enough that Ruminant T Diddle was responsible for the crimes of Love and Monsters, Last of the Time Turds, Partners in Crime, and Journey's End.
