From Mike Tucker in "The Archers" to Davros in Doctor Who ...


Terry Molloy studied Music and Drama in Liverpool in the 1960s, and played in a soul band for three years, even performing in the famous "Cavern" club.


Terry became the third actor to portray Davros in Doctor Who - the character had previously been played by Michael Wisher and David Gooderson. He is the only actor to have played Davros in more than one serial, namely "Resurrection of the Daleks", "Revelation of the Daleks" and "Remembrance of the Daleks". He will be returning to the part later this year, when Big Finish release a quartet of audio dramas about the early years of the character, under the banner "I, Davros".

Each chapter of "I, Davros" will cover a significant moment in his life, revealing previously untold details of how and why Davros became the notorious creator of the Daleks. Big Finish has previously released a highly regarded double CD story entitled simply "Davros" by Lance Parkin. Elements from this story will also be woven in to this new mini-series. Terry also played the role for Big Finish in the dramas "Juggernauts" and "Terror Firma".

Terry played another role in the original television series, that of Russell in "Attack Of The Cybermen" – before being cast he had been considered for two other roles in that serial - Griffths (eventually played by Brian Glover) and Payne (played by James Beckett).

Other television roles have included Stan Harvey in Crossroads, plus Bergerac, Angels, French and Saunders, Chalkface, Chancer, Specials, The Bill, Dangerfield and All About Me. For BBV, he played DI Burke in "The Devil of Winterborne".

Radio fans will know him as the voice of long-standing character Mike Tucker in BBC radio 4 series "The Archers".

We are delighted that Terry joined us for the Cult TV Festival in 2006.
