appeared in
A Town Call Mercy
      He first became known to television audiences in the mid-1960s as Steven Taylor, one of the early time-travelling companions in the programme Doctor Who, when the Doctor was played by William Hartnell.After leaving Doctor Who, Purves became a regular presenter on the children's magazine programme Blue Peter from 1967 to 1978. Purves maintained his connection to Doctor Who throughout his time on Blue Peter, often hosting special features on the programme and interviewing the actors. These included many clips from episodes which are otherwise now lost, most notably The Daleks' Master Plan, in which Purves himself had appeared. Purves has provided DVD commentaries for many of the surviving Doctor Who episodes he appeared in and documents the making of each of his Doctor Who stories in his autobiography, Here's one I wrote earlier. Purves was also a good friend of the actor Jon Pertwee, who played the Third Doctor.

From 2001 to 2004, Bruno  played the character of Todd Grimshaw in the ITVsoap opera Coronation Street. As the first openly gay character on the show, Langley developed a large gay following

Since leaving Coronation Street, he has played roles such as the part of Adam Mitchell in the 2005 series of Doctor Who with Christopher Eccleston and Billie Piper, appearing in two episodes, "Dalek" and "The Long Game", and provided an audio commentary for the DVD of these episodes . He also filmed a small role in the feature film The League of Gentlemen's Apocalypse, released in June 2005, an episode of Dalziel and Pascoe, the little-seen filmHalal Harry, and read Horace for BBC Radio 7.

In the summer of 2005, Langley appeared in an acclaimed run of Romeo and Juliet opposite fellow ex-soap actress Scarlett Alice Johnson at Stafford Castle, and on 30 October 2005 he appeared on stage at the Old Vic theatre in London in the play Night Sky with Christopher Eccleston, Navin Chowdhry, David Warner, Saffron Burrows and David Baddiel.

In Spring 2006, Langley appeared in Life Imitates Art at the Camden People's Theatre. In 2006, he was seen in a production of A Taste of Honey which toured the UK extensively and played a short run at the Richmond Theatre.


Matthew was a companion of Tom Baker and Peter Davison's Doctors from 1980 to 1982. Waterhouse was the youngest actor to play a companion (Sarah Sutton was the youngest female actor and second youngest to play a companion; several companions since the series' 2005 revival have been portrayed in their youths actors younger than Waterhouse, notably 10-year-old Caitlin Blackwood who originated the role of Amy Pond before it was taken over by her adult cousin, Karen Gillian), and had only appeared in one television drama prior to being appointed in the role. He played the schoolboy Briarley in the BBC2 adaptation of To Serve Them All My Days with John Duttine, and it was only shortly before he filmed his appearance on the miniseries that he found out he had secured the role of Adric.[3]

Waterhouse returned to the sphere of Doctor Who and took part in the audio commentaries for the DVD releases of Earthshock and The Visitation released in 2003 and 2004 respectively. He also provided commentary for The Keeper of Traken, released in 2007 as part of the New Beginnings box set. Though released separately, all commentaries were recorded in the same week, as noted by Waterhouse in his commentary for The Keeper of Traken. More recently, in late 2008, he made an audio commentary, jointly with Peter Davison, Janet Fielding and Sarah Sutton for the DVD releases of Four to Doomsday and Black Orchid. He also talks about his complete tenure on the show in the featurette "The Boy With the Golden Star" dedicated to Adric on the Warriors' Gate DVD.

Garrick Hagon (born 27 September 1939) is a film, stage, television and radio actor best known for his role as Biggs Darklighter in Star Wars: A New Hope. His many films include BatmanSpy GameMe and Orson Welles andThe Message. He was the rebel leader Ky in Doctor Who: The Mutants and played Simon Gerrard, Debbie Aldridge's husband in BBC’s The Archers.
Also the 11th Doctor Story "A Town Called Mercy" is the third episode of the seventh series of the British science fiction television series Doctor Who, transmitted on BBC One in the United Kingdom on 15 September 2012. It was written by Toby Whithouse and directed by Saul Metzstein.

Joanne appeared as Sadie in this year’s DR Who episode of A Town Called Mercy. Space travel fans may remember Joanne as Zoe Lessard in the BBC series Space Odyssey: A Journey To The Planets. Other tv highlights include Sally in the first series of Mistresses, Francine in Our
Friends In The North and comedy credits such as Miss Jocelyn and Man
From Auntie. Joanne has also appeared in numerous roles on radio and stage.
