Michael Sheard (18 June 1938-31 August 2005[1]) made several appearances on Doctor Who. He worked with every Doctor during the programme's original run save Patrick Troughton and Colin Baker. He was also a one-time Big Finish audio actor, where he worked with Paul McGann.

Sheard was interviewed in several Doctor Who documentaries, including Osirian Gothic, Chronotrip, and Where on Earth Is ... Katy Manning Because She'd Really Like to Know! He also contributed to the audio commentary for Pyramids of Mars.


Outside Doctor Who he was perhaps best known for his portrayal of Admiral Ozzel in The Empire Strikes Back, and for playing Mr Bronson in Grange Hill. He also portrayed Adolf Hitler several times, most recently in an uncredited cameo in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. He also played Heinrich Himmler on several occasions.
