    Margot Hayhoe

  • Portrayed

    Production Manager in Doctor Who, 1966-1970

Margot Hayhoe started her career as an actress, but quickly realised she’d be better suited behind the camera!

She joined the BBC and moved into production, starting out as an Assistant Floor Manager and finally rising to Producer.

In an incredibly successful and varied career, she worked on so much classic BBC television drama that it’s pointless to try and list it all here!

For Doctor Who fans, her work on The War Machines, Fury from the Deep, The Ambassadors of Death, Logopolis, Castrovalva and Snakedance gives an utterly unique perspective on the programme. Then there’s heradditional acting roles!!!

In this absolutely fascinating interview, Robert Dick chats to Margot about an amazing career that didn’t go exactly as she thought it would!!!
