Bernard Bresslaw

Bernard Bresslaw, shown here getting made up as the first Ice Warrior for the 1967 Doctor Who story, “The Ice Warriors”, was already a household name in Britain, but was happy to play a role where his face wouldn’t be seen, and came up with the sibilant voice himself, which meant he would be completely unrecognisable.

He had a young son at the time, which may have had something to do with him taking the part.
