  • The third of four children of a Scottish Presbyterian classics teacher. Failed all his exams before leaving Edinburgh Academy. First job was working in a tannery. Began his work in the theatre in 1944, performing in repertory theatres around the country. Made his London debut in 1956, starring in George Bernard Shaw's Major Barbara. Was offered the role of fourth Doctor in the BBC series Doctor Who in 1963, but turned it down because he didn't want to commit himself for three years. Joined the National Theatre in 1965, performing in a revival of Pinero's Trelawny of the Wells. Between 1990 and 1994, starred in the BBC sitcom Waiting for God. Tall, with a commanding stage presence, booming voice and larger-than-life personality, he specialised in eccentric roles such as mad scientists and flawed clergymen. His last appearance was as a guest star in Foyle's War in 2008, two years before his death.
