Hamish Wilson (born James Aitken Wilson[1] in Glasgow, 13 December 1942[2]-26 March 2020[3]) played Jamie McCrimmon during episodes 2 and 3 of the Doctor Who television story The Mind Robber when Frazer Hines fell ill with chicken pox.

Wilson trained as an actor at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, from which he would later receive a fellowship. At the time that he came to do his Doctor Who appearance, he was working as a furniture and fittings remover in London.

After Doctor Who, Wilson became a radio producer, working with Radio Forth and Radio Clyde before moving to BBC Radio Scotland. In his later years, he became a senior producer for BBC Radio 3 and BBC Radio 4.

He sadly passed away on 26 March 2020, as a result of contracting the coronavirus [4]
