David Graham (Controller 2957)


Controller 2957 is the future projection of Simon whom the children meet during the Burn Up. He appears cowardly and nervous but poccesses a brilliant mind. He still feels protective about Beth even though they were proved to be incompatible by a computer. He was originally Commander Traynor's assistant but took over his mentor's post when evidence was uncovered that pointed to the Commander being a traitor. Traynor has never forgiven him.

  David Graham is perhaps most famous for a number of roles in which his face has remained hidden... His is the voice of many of the puppets seen in the Gerry & Sylvia Anderson children's series of the 1960s including Lady Penelope's cockney chauffeur, Parker and the stuttering inventor Brains in the perennial Thunderbirds.

He is still often called upon to supply their voices for promotional work and documentaries. David was also bought in on the early episodes of Doctor Who to supply the modulated voices (along with Peter Hawkins) of the original Daleks.

Over the years, David has used his vocal abilities to supply his performances with a wide variety of accents including American, Russian, French, Italian, Middle European, German, Spanish and Hungarian.

He was also a member of the BBC Radio Drama Company from 1975 to 1977.

In the UK, his face is probably best known as the long suffering Mr. Bloom in the BBC supernatural comedy, "So Haunt Me" which ran for three series in the early nineties and starred Miriam Karolin.
