From The Valeyard to Colonel Mustard ...


Michael Jayston, as fans of Doctor Who will know, played the character of 'The Valeyard' in Colin Baker's final season, who was in fact the final regeneration of The Doctor himself!

Michael is well known both on-screen and through his voiceover work. He played Ernest Bristow in several episodes of The Darling Buds of May, and was Colonel Mustard in the UK 1991 version of Cluedo. Other series we have seen him in include "UFO", "Tales of the Unexpected", "CATS Eyes", "Press Gang", "Callan", "Casualty", "Heartbeat", "Quiller", "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy", "Crazy Like A Fox", "A Bit of A Do", "Haggard", "The Bill", "Outside Edge", "The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes", "The Edwardians", "Holby City" and what was expected to be the last ever episode of "Only Fools and Horses" in 1996.

He appeared in the 1997 mini-series "20,000 Leagues Under The Sea", and has worked in many period pieces, including 1968's "A Midsummer Night's Dream", 1970's "Cromwell", 1971's "Nicholas and Alexandra", 1973's "The Merchant of Venice", 1973's "Jane Eyre", 1975's "King Lear", and 1988's "Macbeth".

Big screen appearances include "The Internecine Project", "Zulu Dawn", and "Highlander III: The Sorcerer".
