Michael Gough (23 November 1916-17 March 2011[1]) played the Celestial Toymaker in the Doctor Who television story The Celestial Toymaker and Hedin in Arc of Infinity.

He would also have returned as the Toymaker for The Nightmare Fair had the original Season 23 not been cancelled. (DOC: The Lost Season) It is unknown if he was actually approached about making the audio play, but he had been retired for almost a decade by the time it was produced, only appearing in two Tim Burton films as a personal favour.

Gough was also considered to play Dr Fendelman in Image of the Fendahl. (INFO: Image of the Fendahl)

A longtime character actor employed on both sides of the Atlantic, Gough is most widely known for playing Alfred Pennyworth from 1989 to 1997 in Batman, Batman Returns, Batman Forever and Batman and Robin.

Gough was married to Anneke Wills, who played companion Polly Wright, for 17 years (1962-1979).
