A regular guest in the worlds of Doctor Who, and familar face from a huge range of Cult TV series ...

 

Guest-starring in the Cult TV shows The Saint, Department S, The Persuaders! and three episodes of The Avengers, Bernard appeared in four Doctor Who adventures directed by John Maloney.

He played Gulliver in the 1968 story The Mind Robber, a Time Lord in The War Games, which marked Patrick Troughton’s last outing as The Doctor, and appeared as Taron in Planet of the Daleks opposite Jon Pertwee. Playing Chancellor Goth in The Deadly Assassin, his battle with Tom Baker is one of the most violent scenes in the history of the series and drew strong complaints from Mary Whitehouse.

Amongst his numerous television credits, Bernard portrayed Sir Christopher Hatton in Elizabeth R and Dr Philip Martel in Enemy at the Door, set during the Nazi occupation of the Channel Islands, Rankin in The Jewel in the Crown, the Prime Minister in For the Greater Good, and Peter Dobson in Nice Town.

After roles in Minder and Between the Lines, he played Harland in The Return of Sherlock Holmes's The Hound of the Baskervilles, starring Jeremy Brett and Edward Hardwicke, and the elder Crawford in David Pirie's Murder Rooms: The Dark Beginnings of Sherlock Holmes.

On the big screen he played Campbell opposite George Lazenby’s James Bond in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, then went on to appear in Gold and Shout at the Devil for director Peter Hunt. More recently he played General Edgar in Richard Attenborough’s Gandhi and Balliol in Braveheart.
