Peter Craze (1946 - 2020)

The latest issue of DWM has reported that Peter Craze has passed away. It was actually on 30th December, 2020, but most of us only learned of it at the end of last week.
He appeared in Doctor Who on three occasions. The first was as Dako, a young Xeron rebel in The Space Museum, where he featured alongside the late Jeremy Bulloch - his friend and contemporary at drama school.

His next appearance was a brief one - as the captured French soldier Du Pont in The War Games.
His final role was a more substantial one - that of the Customs Officer Costa in Nightmare of Eden.

His other connection with the worlds of Doctor Who was, of course, the fact that he was the younger brother of companion actor Michael Craze, who played Ben Jackson between The War Machines (1966) and The Faceless Ones (1967).
