Wasn't Bonnie Langford.I'm afraid it was Earl Cameron  .Dead just a month short of 103 :( Was he the oldest living Dr Who actor ever? He was certainly the first black actor with a major speaking role I think. A true legend in every way ! So 100 yr old Arnold Yarrow inherits the title of oldest living Dr Who actor.Congrats to him!  http://mobile.royalgazette.com/news/article/20200703/acting-legend-earl-cameron-dies-aged-102&template=mobileart

 

Just been perusing this thread, so apologies for being a few days old but after Earl Cameron's death, I was looking at the research I did for Round 1 of Biblio's Scavenger Hunt Bingo (Doctor Who actors). By my reckoning, since I compiled the list in 2016, we've lost the oldest 5 living Doctor Who actors (of which Cameron was the oldest): Earl Cameron, Richard Beale, Peter Sallis, Dudley Simpson and Nicolas Parsons, plus plenty more from the top 20 or 30. I believe (and I'm sure someone on here will correct me if I'm wrong) the oldest living Doctor Who actors now are:

 

1. Arnold Yarrow (100) - Bellal in Death to the Daleks (1974)

2. Donald Pelmear (96) - Professor Rubeish in The Time Warrior (1973/74)

3. Laurie Webb (96) - Mr Ollis in The Three Doctors (1973)

4. David Graham (96) - Professor Kerensky in City of Death (1979), plus other roles including voices of the Daleks (and Parker in Thunderbirds)

5. William Russell (95) - Ian Chesterton, companion of the First Doctor

6. Morris Perry (95) - Captain Dent in Colony in Space (1971)

7. Ysanne Churchman (95) - Alpha Centuari in The Curse of Peladon (1972) and The Monster of Peladon (1974)

8. Andre Maranne (94) - Benoit in The Moonbase (1967)

9. Gregg Palmer (94?) - Cyberman in The Tenth Planet (1966)

9. David de Keyser (93) - Voice of the Atraxi in The Eleventh Hour (2010)

10. June Brown (93) - Lady Eleanor in The Time Warrior (1973/74)

11. Geoffrey Palmer (93) - Masters in Doctor Who and the Silurians (1970), Administrator in The Mutants and Captain Hardaker in Voyage of the Damned (2007)

12. Graham Rigby (93) - Larry in The Dalek Invasion of Earth (1964)

13. Derek Smith (93) - Doorman in Human Nature (2007)

14. Wendy Danvers (93?) - Amazonia in The Curse of Peladon (1972) - status unknown

15. Frank Windsor (92) - Ranulf in The King's Demons (1983) and Inspector Mackenzie in Ghost Light (1989)

16. Peter Cellier (92) - Andrews in Time-Flight (1982)

17. Michael Craig (92) - Commodore Travers in The Trial of a Time Lord: Terror of the Vervoids (1986)

18. Mark Eden (92) - Marco Polo in Marco Polo (1964)

19. Georgine Anderson (92) - May in Gridlock (2007)

20. Bernard Cribbins (91) - Wilfrid Mott, companion of the Tenth Doctor (plus other Who roles)

21. Frank Mills (91) - Radio Telescope Director in Terror of the Autons (1971)

22. John Nettleton (91) - Reverend Ernest Matthews in Ghost Light (1989)

23. Damaris Hayman (91) - Miss Hawthorne in The Daemons (1971)

24. Thelma Barlow (91) - Lady Thaw in The Lazarus Experiment (2007)

25. Steve Machin (91) - Various parts in Old Who

26. Patricia Prior (91) - Mr Ollis in The Three Doctors (1973)

27. John Woodvine (90) - The Marshal in The Armageddon Factor (1979)

28. Colin Jeavons (90) - Damon in The Underwater Menace (1967)

29. Clifford Rose (90) - Rorvik in Warriors' Gate (1981)

30. Roy Evans (90) - Trantis in The Daleks' Master Plan (1965/66), Bert in The Green Death (1973) and Miner in The Monster of Peladon (1974)

31. Henry Woolf (90) - The Collector in The Sun Makers (1977)

32. Shirley Cooklin (90) - Kaftan in Tomb of the Cybermen (1968)

33. Gary Watson (90) - Arthur Terrall in The Evil of the Daleks (1967)

34. David Garfield (90) - Neeva in The Face of Evil (1977) and Von Weich in The War Games (1969)

35. Lilias Walker (90) - Sister Lamont in Terror of the Zygons (1975)

36. John Rolfe (90) - Soldier in The War Machines (1966) Sam in The Moonbase (1967) and Fell in The Green Death (1973)

37. Alan Curtis (89) - Major Green in The War Machines (1966)

 

I think that's all the living Doctor Who actors who are over the age of 90. Hope this is useful. :)

 

Special mention for Barbara Clegg (94) - writer of Enlightenment (1983)

 

EDITED to include @msc's more *complete* research... :facepalm:

Nice work, Rover. Just to add:

 

Arnold Yarrow (100) - Bellal in Death to the Daleks (1974). Yarrow celebrated his 100th birthday in April and described himself as "frail but happy". He got thousands of well wishes from Dr Who fans, and is a bit bemused people still remember his career.

 

Donald Pelmear (born 1924) - Professor Rubeish in The Time Warrior (1974), one of the many fun eccentric boffins in Who.

Laurie Webb (born 1924) - Mr Ollis in The Three Doctors (1973) - there was some "isn't he dead?" talk on twitter a while back but then he showed up alive and well.

Graham Rigby (born 1927) - Larry from The Dalek Invasion of Earth (1964), believed to be still with us. Well, he was when he was last interviewed for the DVDs.

Derek Smith (born 1927) - the doorman from Human Nature (2007) - "Spare a penny?" "I didn't even spare you" - presumably DWM or the like would have mentioned if he'd died. Although it was a spot up from extra work, so if anyone dies without any noticing here...

Georgine Anderson (born 1928) - one of the old lesbians in Gridlock (2007) - not sure if you were counting New Who. But then Thelma Barlow, so you must be...

Steve Machin (born 1929) - but bit parts, and last acted in the 1980s, so another who could easily die off the radar.

Patricia Prior - born 1929, Mrs Ollis in The Three Doctors (1973) - yes, they're both still alive, and Prior was known to be around a month ago.

Shirley Cooklin - turned 90 in March 2020. Kaftan from Tomb of the Cybermen (1968) - Doing conventions in 2018, was alive for her 90th this year, retired a long time ago now but should get an acknowledgment of her death when she goes, if not a full QO (sorry Latham fans)

Alan Curtis - Major Green from the War Machines. Still going, not as ill as I had thought (Parkinsons iirc) and turns 90th on the 30th July 2020.

David Garfield (born 1930) - Neeva from Face of Evil, and Von Weich from The War Games. Still acting till relatively recently and doing fan stuff recently too.

Lilias Walker (born 1930) - Sister Lamont from Terror of the Zygons. Went into obscurity after retirement but recently heard she was still going.

John Rolfe (born around 1930) - Fell in The Green Death/Sam in The Moonbase. Another who vanished from the spotlight, but was alive last I heard. You have to assume a chap who touches on so many different online geekdoms would be noticed by someone somewhere if he died.

 

Barbara Clegg - Not an actor but worth a mention, surely? The writer of Enlightenment turned 94 in March 2020.

 

Wendy Danvers from Curse of Peladon is allegedly still alive at 93, but she's very much long out of the spotlight.

 

John Greenwood - D'Artagnan from The Mind Robber - died in November 2018 according to some recent checks in The Stage. As an example of folk dying off the radar.

 

Martin Cort is about this age and still runs his own website.

 

Also I just heard in the last week that Gregg Palmer who played a Cyberman in The Tenth Planet is still around as imdb mixed up his records with an American actor who isn't related. He'd be about 94 now. See? This thing is forever changing thanks to research!

It is the anniversary of the death of William Hughes (20) two years ago. Young Davros? The talking roles in the Krillitanes story?

 

Not sure they are using kids as much as they did back in the Ninth/Tenth/Eleventh Doctor eras.

Probably 20 of them in the one where all the regenerations were shown in Whittaker's Timeless Child arc, thinking about it after my bacon sarny.

Many thanks msc. I can tell you exactly what happened after looking through your names - when I did my research 4 years ago, I went through Wikipedia and clicked everyone with a page to get a DOB. That gave me 885 names so I didn't bother looking up the people who didn't have wiki pages, not least because the chances of them earning a QO were slim to none in many cases. I did have Philip Latham on my list though, so he passed that test, if seemingly not in real life! I haven't updated it since I did the research, which would be around first series Peter Capaldi (Dark Water/Death in Heaven) so there's bound to be a few more to add on the cusp if I do some research into later Capaldi/Whittaker.

I'm loathe to comment as I'm sure msc will have a younger option! :lol: Emilia Jones who played Merry in The Rings of Akhaten (2013) is 18 now and Isabella Blake-Thomas who played "Child" in The Bells of Saint John (2013) is 17. Taking it a step further, the twins who played Melody Pond in A Good Man Goes to War (2011) will be approaching double figures now, and I'm guessing there have been other babies in more recently too (did Clara have a baby in one of her many "future with Danny" scenes?) Young Davros was played by Joey Price. He's be about 13-15 now?

Wasn't really being serious, @RoverAndOut. I'm guessing the youngest would be the baby Brendan in the Timeless Child arc ha!

 

No doubt when they hit 18, IMDB will be on it...or not...I dunno.

Basically if this forum shows anything, its that in the really popular deadpool topics like football and acting and music, names can show up all the time or disappear as research items improve, and even folk on the ball with their subjects like Ulitzer on music or OoO on football can turn away for 5 seconds and come back to a long lost death certificate from the 70s and 5 new old guys showing up in their local press to suddenly make all the hard work out of date! That's life, I guess!

Have just found out that actor Edmund Kente died aged 72 back in January, completely off the radar. He had a decent sized role as a Scrooge turned Cyber-human Scoones in the David Tennant 2009 Dr Who Christmas special The Next Doctor. But I add pictures as he'd been in a fair few things including Downton Abbey, The Tudors and Eastenders over the years.

iain's been happily getting it bloody wrong for 15 years since the day he was born.

 

Actually, the Winston's Fumbs track on one of the Nuggets boxsets I've got isn't too terrible, if extremely of its time. Sounds like his face didn't fit; it must have been too big, which is why he quit/got booted.
