Doctor Who fans will kinda remember Richard Todd for his part as Sanders in the 1982 Peter Davison story, Kinda. Though for others, this real life war hero will be remembered for roles in such films as The Dam Busters (1955) and the Yangtse Incident (1957).
Todd, who had been fighting cancer, has died at the age of 90. He had been one of the first British soldiers to parachute into France on D-Day.
He has a long list of credits with film and television roles as early as 1937 to as recent as 2007.
The BBC has released a promo for their Christmas line up (see second video below) which features some clips from the Doctor Who: The End of Time specials. One fan ("WhoFan9") made their own edit of it strictly for The End of TIme which you can see below.

READER'S DIGEST EXCLUSIVE:
David Tennant has nothing to say to Matt Smith
David Tennant has admitted he has "nothing to say" to new Time Lord, Matt Smith.
Tennant told Reader's Digest, in an exclusive interview for the December issue, that he'd spoken to his successor several times "but there's nothing to say. I think we both thought we'd be able to exchange lots of ideas. But actually it's none of my business how Matt does it and nothing I say can really help him."
Talking about his final foray as the Doctor in this year's Christmas special, Tennant says "This year we've done something different. It is still set in Christmas, but it's perhaps not got quite as much, er…Christmas cheer as before." Tennant adds that come Christmas Day he'll be watching his own send off. "Just to enjoy the moment. It's my last Doctor Who – it will be nice to witness that."
