Yee Jee also has a myriad of professional endeavours, including web development, photography, writing, and much more.


Frazer Hines – Jamie McCrimmon

Frazer Hines appeared in many films before the age of 15, including Charlie Chaplin’s A King in New York. However, his big break came when he took on the role of Jamie McCrimmon opposite Second Doctor Patrick Troughton in Doctor Who. As Jamie, he appeared in 117 TV episodes – more than any other companion in the history of the show (and more than most Doctors!). He has gone on to reprise the role for Big Finish in recent years, as well as voicing the Second Doctor on occasion.

Other roles since include Joe Sugden on the long-running soap opera Emmerdale Farm and Sir Gordon Fletcher in Outlander – a TV series based on a book inspired by his performance on Doctor Who. He also has an extensive theatre career, including many pantomime appearances.

He has also release two books: Hines Sight, a reissue of his 1996 autobiography, and most recently the photo collection, Fifty Shades of Frazer.


Wendy Padbury – Zoe Heriot

Wendy Padbury played companion Zoe Heriot opposite the 2nd Doctor Patrick Troughton and Frazer Hines (as Jamie McCrimmon) in Doctor Who from 1968 to 1969. Wendy later appeared in “Doctor Who and the Daleks in the Seven Keys to Doomsday” in 1974, a stage play at the Adelphi Theatre London based on the television series, in which she played a companion named Jenny, opposite Trevor Martin as the Doctor. She then made an appearance, again with Hines and Troughton in Doctor Who’s 20th anniversary story, “The Five Doctors”. Wendy has also made numerous Big Finish audio dramas.

In her other work as an agent Wendy contributed in a major way to the new Doctor Who series by discovering Matt Smith, who later went on to the role of the 11th Doctor in the series.


Terry Molloy – Davros

Montmorency Montgomery Bear has been Sage, Mentor, Yogi, Procurer of Suspicious Liquids and Chocolaty Substances to Terry Molloy since he was a mere ‘Youngling’ with grubby knees!

As a result of Monty’s sparkling advice and party animal persona, Terry’s career has risen to the dizzy depths of infamy… working continuously on Radio, TV, Film, and Stage, for the past ‘nearly fifty years’ with all the enthusiasm and dedication of a racing slug!

Monty has helped Terry win several prestigious Radio and Audio Drama Awards both in the UK and the USA., though no-one is quite sure how he got the money together for the bribes. In 1973 Terry joined the cast of BBC RADIO 4’s “THE ARCHERS” as ‘Mike Tucker’. Forty-four years later, he is still a regular in Ambridge!

It has long been believed that it was Monty’s penchant for ‘evil intelligences’ and the tutoring he gave, that enabled Terry to take on the mantle of ‘Davros’, creator of the Daleks in “DOCTOR WHO” from 1983 until the closure of the ‘Classic Series’, and then voicing the character in many Big Finish audio adventures, including the much acclaimed four part mini-series “I, Davros”. Monty’s secret love of the downright weird also pushed Terry into the cult paranormal comedy audio series “The Scarifyers” as ‘Prof. Edward Dunning’ to David Warner’s ‘Harry (Thumper) Crow’.

Terry’s screen career has been blighted by Monty trying to market him as ‘The New Schwarzenegger’, but recent work on a number of mainstream and Indie films with talent like John Hurt, Roger Lloyd Pack, Neve Cusack, Caroline Catz, & Eileen Atkins, have restored Terry’s faith in cakes (in fact most foodstuffs… apart from pasta!) as a spiritual catalyst to his burgeoning waistline.

When not playing Ukulele or travelling the world with his long suffering Teddy Bear ‘Monty’ as a companion, Terry enjoys the quiet life… walking his dogs on the beaches of rural Norfolk.. and counting sheep.


Steve Gostelow – Dalek/Cyber Operator

Prop maker and actor Steve Gostelow appeared in 30 Years in the TARDIS, a documentary celebrating the 30th anniversary of Doctor Who, as a Dalek operator, Cyberman and the Cybercontroller.

Steve also supplied props and costumes for the same production. However, he’s not coming to (Re)Gen alone – he’ll be accompanied by a silver Troughton-era Dalek, some oldschool Cybermen helmets, and a few other props familiar to fans of the Classic Series!


Simon Fraser – Comic Artist

Simon Fraser is a Scottish comics artist most known for co-created the Eagle Award winning Nikolai Dante for 2000AD, where he has also drawn Judge Dredd.
