Also note him in these movies:
Dr. Terror's House of Horrors (1965) .... Dr. Blake (segment "Vampire")
The Devils (1971) .... Ibert

About one photo of King Priam exists, showing him from the side. Costume details are not clear.
___

Barrie Ingham played Prince Paris.

He previously appeared in the Peter Cushing film Dr. Who and the Daleks (1965) as Alydon, leader of the Thals. However, he's wearing heavy drag-queen makeup in that film, making it fairly useless for reference.

He also appeared in:
Danger Man -  The Vacation 29 January 1961 (Season 1, Episode 20)

He's not in the episode too much, apart from one long car scene. He turns out to be a baddie.

This was not Loose Cannon's source.

___

James Lynn played Troilus. He had very few other roles, and for once Loose Cannon actually gave up on this character. There are several photos of him with Cressida, shown from a side view, usually from a worm's eye view. Although not the best angles, Loose Cannon used these in their recon.

___

Frances White played Cassandra.

I'm not sure what Loose Cannon's source was, but it shows her as young with long hair.

11 years later, she appeared looking older with her hair up in a bun, in I, Claudius. She's quite excellent in it.

"I, Claudius" .... Julia (2 episodes, 1976)
    - Waiting in the Wings (1976) TV episode .... Julia
    - A Touch of Murder (1976) TV episode .... Julia

I believe Loose Cannon took a lot of their costumes from I, Claudius.

Frances White also appeared in:
Mary, Queen of Scots (1971) .... Mary Fleming

In May 2009, Doctor Who Magazine published its 22nd Special Issue, entitled 200 Golden Moments. Two actual photos of Cassandra appear, showing her in a tiara/coronet headdress and short hair, as well as "poison spike" shoulder brooches.

Previously, no photos of Cassandra were known to exist, and this look for Cassandra is a surprising one, different from how she appeared in Loose Cannon's recon.

___

Jack Melford played  Menelaus. He also appeared in:
Lust for a Vampire (1971) .... Bishop

___

Cavan Kendall played Achilles.

___

Tutte Lemkov (Cyclops) played Kuiju in Season 1's Marco Polo, and Ibrahim in Season 2's The Crusade.

At least one photo of Cyclops exists.

___


Alan Haywood played Hector. Loose Cannon used grabs from The Avengers.

"The Avengers" The Gilded Cage  9 November 1963 (Season 3, Episode 7)
"The Avengers" A Chorus of Frogs   9 March 1963 (Season 2, Episode 24)

A Chorus of Frogs is also, strangely, good reference for Polly in The Macra Terror. There's an actress with an identical hairstyle.

More of Barrie Ingham [Prince Paris] in Danger Man -  The Vacation 29 January 1961 (Season 1, Episode 20)

This is from the first, half-hour Danger Man series.

They're pretty good quality for their size (and blow up well), but I was having trouble getting Danger Man in its full quality, so I decided to jump the gun and post some smaller web style video grabs, so you get the idea.

Ivor Salter (Odysseus) appeared in two hourlong episodes from the second Danger Man series:

"Danger Man" Such Men Are Dangerous  12 January 1965 (Season 1, Episode 14)
"Danger Man" Yesterday's Enemies  13 October 1964 (Season 1, Episode 1)

He appears at the end of one episode and at the beginning of the other. Although he's a killer in both, he's classy and understated, not a brute.

I'm still not sure what Loose Cannon's source was.

tygerbug wrote:"Danger Man" The Ubiquitous Mr. Lovegrove  17 February 1965 (Season 1, Episode 18)

Francis De Wolff [Agamemnon] has a large part in this episode from the second, hourlong Danger Man series. He plays a casino owner who has discovered John Drake's identity, and seeks to blackmail him out of 10 thousand pounds. Cool and sly, De Wolff shows he could have played The Master.

Foreshadowing The Prisoner, the episode ends on a surreal note, revealing that Drake hallucinated the entire hourlong story after a car accident. Several episodes from this run foreshadow the Prisoner a bit, with downbeat endings, but this one in particular shows Drake trapped in a world of people trying to control him. A heartbeat sound features on the soundtrack.

Jean Marsh (Sara Kingdom).

Image
Image
Image

These images are from The "The Saint," The Scales of Justice - 1 December 1968 (Season 6, Episode 10)

I'm afraid this is three years after her Doctor Who role, but it's in color and I have a lot to show you from this episode, so let's start with this one.

Image
Image
Image


Jean Marsh is one of our best-loved actresses, with as long and distinguished a career as anyone in show business. She is perhaps best known for co-creating (with Eileen Atkins) "Upstairs, Downstairs" which ran from 1971 to 1975.

She first appeared in Doctor Who as Joanna in The Crusade, and one of her episodes is missing. She also appeared in the 80s story Battlefield.

Image
Image
Image

But she is best known to Doctor Who fans for her Daleks' Master Plan role as Sara Kingdom, formerly of the Space Security force, who kills her own brother Bret Vyon, while under the command of the evil Mavic Chen. She comes to regret her actions, and becomes a good friend to the Doctor and Steven. They proceed to have several exciting adventures in time and space together, before she succumbs to what might be the most tragic death in Doctor Who history.

Tough as nails, but with a heart of gold underneath, Sara Kingdom is not your average Doctor Who companion. She's certainly not a screaming 19 year old ...

Jean Lyndsay Torren Marsh was born on the first of July 1934, in Stoke Newington, London. She was 31 years old when she played Sara Kingdom in The Daleks' Master Plan, in nine episodes from December 4th 1965 to January 29th 1966.

Katarina appeared in 5 episodes, and Bret Vyon appeared in four. All three function as Doctor Who companions during their respective episodes, though whether any of them can count as official companions is in doubt. With 9 episodes, Sara Kingdom makes the best case for official status, and has recently appeared in two "Companion Chronicles" audio plays by Simon Guerrier. Jean Marsh has also contributed to the DVD of Battlefield and the Loose Cannon production of The Daleks' Master Plan. She appeared recently in Mark Gatiss' Crooked House.

We're looking at these Doctor Who episodes.

The Knight of Jaffa (3 April 1965) - Joanna
The Wheel of Fortune (10 April 1965) - Joanna

The Traitors (4 December 1965) - Sara Kingdom
Counter Plot (11 December 1965) - Sara Kingdom
Coronas of the Sun (18 December 1965) - Sara Kingdom
The Feast of Steven (25 December 1965) - Sara Kingdom
Volcano (1 January 1966) - Sara Kingdom
Golden Death (8 January 1966) - Sara Kingdom
Escape Switch (15 January 1966) - Sara Kingdom
The Abandoned Planet (22 January 1966) - Sara Kingdom
Destruction of Time (29 January 1966) - Sara Kingdom

At one point she was married to Jon Pertwee.

If it helps you in your animation for whatever reason, here are her measurements.
Measurements: 36 1/2-26-37
Height 5' 6½" (1.69 m)

This, of course, is the well-loved series starring Roger Moore as suave ladies man, and man of action, Simon Templar. All available on DVD courtesy of Lord Lew Grade.

Jean Marsh appeared in three earlier episodes of The Saint dating back to 1964. We'll get to those in a moment.

Image
Image
Image

In these images, she is 34 years old. She is 31 in her Doctor Who roles.

Image
Image
Image

She plays Anne Kirby, whose father is a target for assassination. She is able to sleuth out the attempted murderer, but then becomes a target herself. As you can see, she's in the episode throughout.

Image
Image


The episode also features Victor Maddern, who played Robson in Fury From the Deep, the man who becomes possessed by the weed creature and kidnaps Victoria in a helicopter.

Victor Maddern also appeared in a presumably larger role in "The Saint" - The Fast Women - 13 January 1967 (Season 5, Episode 16), with Kate O'Mara and John Hollis.

Image
Image

It's worth tracking down good reference of Victor Maddern because Fury From the Deep only exists as very poor quality telesnaps. Sadly his role in this episode is a small one. However, he is the same age here as in his Doctor Who role.
