Philipp Brammer (Credit: Berchtesgadener Anzeiger)Philipp Brammer, the voice of the tenth Doctor to German viewers, has died after suffering a fall on a walking trip this week. The actor and voice artist from Munich was found by police and mountain rescue crew in the Edelweißlahnersteigs area after he had been reported missing by his wife on Monday, having not returned from his planned trip to the Edelweiss Breitlahner.

Brammer was a popular voice artist who, as well as portraying the tenth Doctor aka David Tennant, also provided voices for Gaeta in Battlestar Galactica, Rainbow in Stargate Atlantis, and Lex Luthor in Smallville; other dubbed actors included Martin Freeman in The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, Leonardo di Caprio in Marvin's Room and Jason Priestley in both Beverly Hills 90210 and Tru Calling. As an actor he appeared in television series such as Die Rosenheim-Cops, SOKO 5113 and most recently The Old Fox, but was perhaps best known for his role as Jan Günzel in the series Lindenstraße. He also provided voices for video games such as Lost Horizon
