Barbara and Ian leaving 'Dr. Who' (1965)

1965-04-02 Daily Express.jpg

[edit]

Two of the regular time travellers in the B.B.C. science fiction series. "Dr. Who" are leaving the cast.

Actress Jacqueline Hill — who plays Barbara — and actor William Russell — who plays Ian — will come down to earth on June 4.

Both have asked to leave the series after 18 months in the TV time machine.

Now the scriptwriters are deciding how to write them out — and it may mean the return of the Dalek monsters.

"I think we will go out in a blaze of glory." said 32-year-old Miss Hill yesterday. "We may capture a spaceship From the Daleks and fly back to earth.

"It has been great fun in 'Dr. Who' — but we can't go on forever. I want to return to the stage!"

Mr. Russell said : "I want to do comedy in the live theatre. I think It would be a bit indulgent to stay any longer with 'Dr. Who.'"
