Philip Madoc
Philip Madoc (born 5 July 1934 in Merthyr Tydfil) is a British actor who has had many television and film roles.

Perhaps his most famous role was as the title character in the BBC Wales drama The Life and Times of David Lloyd George. However he first gained widespread recognition in two TV serials, first as the relentless SS Officer Lutzig in the WW2 serial Manhunt (1969), and then as the vicious Huron warrior Magua in a serialization of The Last of the Mohicans (1971). His trademark style in both parts was a sense of restrained, quiet menace which went further than any overt aggression. He reprised the character of Lutzig somewhat in a later episode of the comedy Dad's Army where he played a U-boat Captain held prisoner by the Walmington-on-Sea platoon of the Home Guard. Despite being surrounded by seasoned comic actors and having relatively few lines he easily stole the show. He also appeared in a controversial episode of The Goodies ("South Africa").

He has had several roles in the BBC science fiction television series Doctor Who. In 1966 he appeared in the movie Daleks - Invasion Earth 2150 AD. Later in the 1960s he appeared two Second Doctor serials — The Krotons and The War Games and in the 1970s he appeared in two Fourth Doctor serials — The Brain of Morbius and The Power of Kroll.

He also made a memorable guest appearance in Terry Nation’s Survivors television series. Madoc has also starred as Ellis Peters' medieval detective Brother Cadfael in several BBC Radio 4 Adaptations.

He was married for a time to the actor Ruth Madoc, but they later divorced.
