The actor Barrie Ingham has died at the age of 82.

Barrie Ingham played Paris in the 1965 Doctor Who story The Myth Makers.

He is perhaps better known for his appearance in the first Dalek feature film, also released in 1965, where he played Alydon, the Thal who discovered the Doctor's TARDIS in the Petrified Forest and who left a case of the Thals' anti-radiation drug for the TARDIS crew.

In his long career Ingham has been featured in over 200 British and American films and TV productions. After playing Sejanus in Granada TV's The Caesars (1968), he had a short spell as an ambitious government minister in The Power Game in 1969. In 1971 took the leading role in the series Hine, as an unscrupulous arms dealer.

He is one of a select group of actors to appear in both the "Star Trek" and "Doctor Who" franchises, playing Danilo O'Dell in Star Trek: The Next Generation: Up the Long Ladder.

On stage he played with many leading production companies including the Royal Shakespeare Company, Mermaid Theatre Company and Royal National Theatre.

Sir John Gielgud gave him his Broadway debut and he subsequently played in many Broadway musicals, including Copperfield on Broadway, and opposite Angela Lansbury in the London production of Gypsy: A Musical Fable in 1973.
