David Graham (born 11 July 1925[1]) was a frequent guest actor on the original series of Doctor Who. Well known for his portrayal of the ill-fated Professor Fyodor Nikolai Kerensky in City of Death, Graham also played the bartender Charlie in The Gunfighters. He also cameoed as an uncredited rebel in The Dalek Invasion of Earth. (DWM 280)

A versatile voice-over actor, Graham's most prolific Doctor Who work came in providing voices for Daleks in The Daleks, The Dalek Invasion of Earth, The Chase (for which he also provided voices for the Mechonoids), Mission to the Unknown and The Daleks' Master Plan, as well as both Dalek movies starring Peter Cushing, Dr. Who and the Daleks and Daleks' Invasion Earth 2150 A.D.. He additionally voiced the narrator of AUDIO: The Daleks, a Century 21 Productions audio adaptation of the last episode of The Chase.

Many years later he also voiced Shedgerton in the Big Finish Main Range audio story The Defectors and Percy Till in Static.

Outside Doctor Who, Graham is perhaps best known for providing several voices for a number of Gerry and Sylvia Anderson's popular "Supermarionation" adventure series, such as Thunderbirds, for Century 21 Productions. These included the regular characters of Gordon Tracy, Brains, and Parker, the latter of which he reprised for the 2015 reboot, Thunderbirds Are Go!. He also voiced Gordon, Parker and Brains, as well as multiple guest characters, in the first series episode The Man from MI.5, which was a crossover with the Doctor Who universe.

Graham has also featured in a number of television commercials, appearing as the "Big Brother" character on the giant screen advertising the Apple Macintosh computer in 1984, and reprised his role of Brains for a series of credit card commercials in New Zealand.
