Biography

Bernard Cribbins is an English voiceover artist, character actor, and comedian. He is most recognizable to sci-fi aficionados for his appearances in the "Doctor Who" franchise. Born in 1928, Cribbins served as a young man in the Parachute Regiment, the British Army's airborne assault force, and worked an apprenticeship at the Oldham Repertory Theatre. In the mid-to-late 1950s, he acted in several West End plays, including "A Comedy of Errors". Segueing into film in the 1960s, he played Tom Campbell in "Daleks' Invasion Earth: 2150 A.D.", a film based on the British sci-fi TV show "Doctor Who". He is often remembered as the station porter in 1970 film drama "The Railway Children". From 1965 to 2001, "Jackanory" was a BBC children's show in which an actor would read excerpts from novels or folk tales. Cribbins appeared as a reader over 100 times -- more than any other guest. A recurring fixture in bit parts in film and TV over the years, he remained loyal to the "Doctor Who" series in various reinventions. In 2007, he guest-starred as glam rock promoter Arnold Korns in "Horror of Glam Rock", a "Doctor Who" radio play for BBC Radio. The following year, he joined the cast of the 2008 series update of "Doctor Who", this time portraying Wilfred Mott, a traveling companion of the Doctor.
