Doctor Who Vs. The Beast Must Die

This low-budget British B-movie was shown on the Horror channel yesterday. In fact, the production - released in 1974 - was so cheap that an Alsatian doubled for the werewolf! Peter Cushing led the cast here (pictured as Dr Lundgren) in another Amicus horror feature, again co-produced by the Dalek film makers, Max Rosenberg and Milton Subotsky.
Eight other co-stars with Doctor Who connections here are:
  • Michael Gambon (Jarmokowski) portrayed both Elliot and Kazran Sardick in A Christmas Carol
  • Anton Diffring (Pavel) was De Flores in Silver Nemesis
  • Tom Chadbon (Foote) played Duggan in City of Death, Merdeen in The Mysterious Planet, and voiced Gordon for No More Lies (Big Finish, 2007)
  • Sam Mansary (Butler) was a Delegate in Mission to the Unknown, a Journalist in The War Machines, and a Diplomat in Day of the Daleks
  • Andrew Lodge (Pilot) was an Assistant in The Savages
  • Carl Bohen (Hunter) was a Tharil in Warriors' Gate
  • Valentine Dyall (the Break voice) was the Black Guardian from The Armageddon Factor to Enlightenment, and voiced Slarn for Slipback (Radio 4, 1985)
  • Bill Mitchell (Narrator) was a Newcaster in Frontier in Space, and voiced Zor for The Pescatons (Argo, 1976)
  • Ted Samuels had also worked on SFX for both Dalek films
