Alfred Lynch (1931-2003)

  1. George Baker, Doctor Who #111: Full Circle, TV, 1980.      The baker’s dozen actors up for Login were familiar names from 80s Whovian casting register. Lynch, Baker, Joss Ackland, Brian Blessed, John Carson, James Ellis, Frank Finlay, Bernard Hepton, Donald Houston, Jeremy Kemp, William Lucas, TP McKenna, Edward Woodward. And they stayed listed until they became unavailable. For example, Lynch agreed to be Commander Millington in #154: The Curse of Fenric, 1989.
  2. Frank Windsor, Doctor Who #128: The King’s Demons, 1983.      Aunty’s usual 80s suspects were flagpoled for Sir Ranulf Fitzwilliam at the court of King John, circa 1215… Lynch, Joss Ackland, George Baker, Ian Bannen, Julian Glover, Michael Jayston, Peter Jeffrey, Dinsdale Landen, TP McKenna, Clifford Rose, Peter Vaughan, Edward Woodward. Plus three Z Cars cops: booming Brian Blessed, Irish James Ellis… and the quiet Windsor.
  3. Ian McCulloch, Doctor Who #130: Warriors of The Deep, 1984.      The 13 possible Nilsons were Lynch, Peter Arne, Ian Holm, Dennis Lill, Ian McKellen, Clive Merrison (BBC Radio’s Sherlock Holmes), John Normington plus five of the astonshing army of 203 candidates for just 18 roles in that year’s Lifeforce movie mess: Nicholas Ball, Tom Chadbon, Michael Gothard, Ronald Lacey, Edward Peel. Not the happiest of Whoverse shoots - and not just because Doc5 Peter Davison obey Doc2 Patrick Troughton’s golden rule. Three seasons and out…
  4. Maurice Colbourne, Doctor Who #133: Resurrection Of The Daleks, TV, 1984.        Producer John Nathan-Turner wanted a name for Commander Lytton… like Lynch, Meg Bennett, Brian Blessed, Kenneth Cope, Timothy Dalton   (the future Lord President in #202: The End of Time, 2000), Leslie Grantham (not yet Dirty Den in EastEnders), Clive Merrison (BBC Radio’s Sherlock Holmes), Terry Molloy (aka Davros), John Rhys-Davies, Maurice Roëves. Plus seurvivor of the Lifeforce bvrigade: Nicholas Ball, Steven Berkoff, Tom Chadbon, Paul Darrow, Michael Gothard, Don Henderson, Del Henney (he became Colonel Archer), Martin Jarvis, Michael Jayston, Edward Peel, George Sewell, Patrick Stewart, Anthony Valentine and David Warner. All 25 up for one role in a flaming Doctor Who… Preposterous!
