Michael Jayston played the Valeyard, a Time Lord-like individual, who, according to the Master, was an amalgamation of the Doctor's darker sides from between his 12th and final incarnations, who frequently menaced the Sixth Doctor so he could take the Doctor's remaining lives.

The Valeyards first appearance was The Trial of a Time Lord: The Mysterious Planet and ran for 14 episodes to The Trial of a Time Lord: The Ultimate Foe in 1986.

Other notable career highlights include Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy with Alec Guinness, Zulu Dawn with Bob Hoskins, Burt Lancaster and Peter O’Toole, Highlander 3 and 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea.
