  • A brief synapse of the early and forgotten acting roles which began the career of the British actor Tim Pigott-Smith.

    In the opinion of this humble reviewer, the acting career of British actor Tim Pigott-Smith is greatly underappreciated. Among his first prominent but now mostly forgotten roles on television were a couple of appearances on the BBC science fiction classic series Doctor Who which helped to launch a number of actors' careers in television and movies. In the first of these appearances he played a minor role of a British military officer in the Jon Pertwee Doctor Who story "The Claws of Axos". Later, he played a much more visible role of the Duke Guiliano's trusted friend Marco in the Tom Baker Doctor Who story "The Masque of Mandragora". This was an especially exceptional performance by Mr. Pigott-Smith with great direction, period sets, and wonderful costume design with the story setting in the early years of the Renaissance in Italy. The video is well worth buying even if you are not a fan of sci-fi. This was one of the roles that helped to launch his career to heights he achieved in such roles as "The Jewel of the Crown" later on.moreless
