We're sad to report that Roger Lloyd-Pack, who played John Lumic in two episodes of Doctor Who, has died aged 69.
Roger was best known in the UK as Trigger, the dim-witted friend of the Trotters in the BBC sitcom, Only Fools and Horses. He was also a regular in The Vicar of Dibley and starred in a number of movies, notably playing Barty Crouch Snr in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
But Doctor Who fans will always remember him for his role of John Lumic, the ruthless creator of the ‘new’ Cybermen when they returned to our screens in 2006. He played Lumic in Rise of the Cybermen and The Age of Steel, providing a memorably chilling opponent for the Tenth Doctor.
