  • Portrayed

    Lilt, Mr. Crane in Doctor Who, 1985, 2006

Colin Spaull is among a small band of actors who have appeared in both classic and the new Doctor Who. Apart from Colin Baker (Revelation of the Daleks) and David Tennant (Rise of the Cybermen and Age of Steel), Colin has worked with two other Doctors, Paul McGann in Grand Theft Cosmos for Big Finish Productions and Peter Davison in The Last Detective.

Colin trained at the famous Drama School in Soho in the west end of London, called The Italia Conti Stage School. That's where he first met Graeme Harper, who went on to become one of the best known Doctor Who directors.

Colin’s first professional job was as “Pip” in BBC TVs Great Expectations. He then became the youngest member of the 1967 Old Vic Theatre Company playing the boy parts in Shakespeare's plays. He has made films with Peter Sellers, David Niven and been directed by Alfred Hitchcock. He has been in many West End theatre productions.

He’s also appeared in countless TV programmes … too numerous to mention!

A popular guest at Doctor Who conventions, Myth Makers are delighted to interview Colin!
