Michael Troughton was a familiar face to TV viewers in the 1980’s and 90’s starring alongside George Cole and Dennis Waterman in Minder as DC Melish, the put upon cop forever trying to nick Arthur Daley for his dodgy deals. He also played the even more put upon MP, Sir Piers Fletcher Dervish who had the misfortune to share an office with Alan B’stard as played by Rik Mayall in The New Statesman.
In the 2014 Doctor Who Christmas Special, Last Christmas, Michael played the character of Professor Albert. He also stars as the Second Doctor in Big Finish Productions Doctor Who audios, a part he was born to play following in the footsteps of his father, Patrick Troughton who played the second Doctor on TV from 1966 to 1969. Michael, has also written a biography of his father as well as a photography book of Patrick’s roles on film and TV.
We are thrilled to be welcoming Michael to Hull Comic Con and can’t wait to talk to him about his career as well as hearing about his Dad.
