The actor Philip Madoc has died at the age of 77. He is best remembered by Doctor Who fans as the mad scientist Solon who was building a new body Frankenstein like for a mad Time Lord Morbius. This is one of the most fondly remembered tales of Tom Baker’s time with wonderful dark comedy dialogue.

He also appeared alongside the second Doctor Patrick Troughton in the War Games and Peter Cushing in the sixties movie Dalek Invasion of Earth. He impressed Tom Baker no end by reading novels in Latin and by all accounts they had a great time filming Morbius.Unlike many who have appeared in the show he was a favourite with fans and actors alike.
