Grahame 'Gray' Flynn

Grahame 'Gray' Flynn lives in the city of Exeter in the United Kingdom. In recent years he has designed for the theatre, art directed commercials for television and also appeared in many productions as an actor. He also works for an Exeter based charity.

Gray's earliest memories of Doctor Who are being sat in front of the television by his parents in the late 1960s. He counts the Pertwee, Tom Baker and Colin Baker eras as his favourites.

In the mid 1980s he worked closely with Stuart Evans of Sevans models producing a number of model kits.

Grahame is fortunate to have met many of the actors and production crew from the original series having corresponded with many and produced the highly successful 'Battlefield' Conventions. He is delighted to count Colin Baker as a close friend describing him as being, "One of the most honourable people I have ever met".

Gray became a close friend of the late producer, John Nathan-Turner designing many shows for him and working with him on his infamous Doctor Who Magazine Memoirs. Gray regards John as being his mentor. Prior to his death they were working on a book project about costume and properties.

Throughout the 1990s Gray was involved in the Longleat Doctor Who days and renovated many properties for the Doctor Who exhibitions at Longleat and Llangollen. He was delighted to work with Steve Cambden on his 'Doctor's Effects' book.

Gray has been collecting costume and properties from the series for many years and is delighted to share some of them here.

He is particularly interested in tracking down Tom Bakers check waistcoat and an original Voc robot costume.
