Bernard Archard Guardian Obituary
The Guardian has published an obituary to the late Bernard Archer, the British character actor who appeared in the classic Tom Baker era adventure Pyramids of Mars.
Archard was also known as/credited as Archer, and enjoyed a prolific career as a guest/character actor from his first television appearance in 1957 throughout the 60s and 70s.
His role of Professor Marcus Scarman in Doctor Who is one that is overlooked in the Guardian obit, however, but it is an appearance that viewers of the episode will not forget, as he portrayed the undead pawn of Sutekh, the Egyptian devil.
Bernard Archard died on May 1st 2008 at the age of 91, and is survived by his civil partner James Belchamber
