Alec with colleagues, 3rd from right.
It is with great sadness that we report the recent passing of former Senior Camera Operator, Alec Wheal. Alec worked on the majority of Doctor Who stories between Destiny of the Daleks and the Greatest Show in the Galaxy. He was regarded by many as an unsung hero of the show and he remained a fan of Doctor Who until the end.
Alec was a highly skilled camera operator who adapted to the ever changing needs of the TV studio environment and was much loved by the Doctors and companions who worked with him.
Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison said "As the senior Cameraman, Alec Wheal was the rock of the studio recordings of Doctor Who, both during my time, and throughout the seventies and eighties. We developed an understanding, so that in those moments of panic as the clock ticked round to ten pm the end result was always as good as it was”.

The Doctor, being an immortal Time Lord and all, has been around the block probably more times than he can count. For over 2000 years, he’s been navigating his way through all sorts of situations, from the mundane to the fantastical to the, well, slightly ridiculous. So it’s not surprising that he’s picked up a few valuable life lessons along his many and varied travels.
Here are 9 noble rules to live your life by, according to the Doctor (and one from Rose!):Lesson 1: Run like hell, because you always need to. Lesson 2: Laugh at everything because it’s always funny. Lesson 3: Never be cruel and never be cowardly. And if you ever are, always make amends.
