Robert James (28 March 1924 – 31 July 2004) was a British actor, who was best known for his television work.

Although a handful have survived, many of James' television performances were amongst those discarded by UK broadcasters throughout the 1960s and 70s, including his iconic role as Lesterson in The Power of the Daleks , which now only exists as still photographs and audio recordings.
He was married to actress Mona Bruce (1924-2008) until his death; they had one child. Clair Mcallister [ citation needed ]

The Ninth Doctor is an incarnation of the Doctor, the protagonist of the BBC science fiction television series Doctor Who. He is portrayed by Christopher Eccleston during the first series of the show's revival in 2005. Within the series' narrative, the Doctor is a centuries-old alien Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey who travels in time and space in the TARDIS, frequently with companions. At the end of life, the Doctor regenerates; as a result, the physical appearance and personality of the Doctor changes. Eccleston's Doctor was a war-torn loner who disguises his trauma brought on by the Time War using a sense of humour and determination to protect the innocent. The production team's approach to the character and Eccleston's portrayal were highlighted as being intentionally different from his predecessors, with Eccleston portraying the character as being less eccentric.
