Matthew Waterhouse

Date of Birth: 19th December 1961
Country of Birth: UK



Looking something like a ragazzo from a Pasolini film, Matthew Waterhouse was already in his late teens when he landed the role of Adric, the young boy from Alzarius, in the long-running science fiction series "Doctor Who" (Alzarius, as I'm sure every reader of BoyActors will already know, is a planet in E-Space). Adric (the name is an anagram derived from the surname of Paul Dirac, the famous twentieth-century physicist) had a brilliant mathematical mind, and always wore his Star of Mathematical Excellence on the breast of his tunic. In the last episode of the story-arc "Earthshock", he was given what has to be the most spectacular and memorable departure of any Doctor Who companion at any time in the programme's history - essentially being splattered all over the primordial Earth in order to wipe out the dinosaurs. In 1998 Waterhouse moved to the United States, where, amongst other things, he was to become a moderately successful writer. In 2010 he published his wonderful memoir "Blue Box Boy", an autobiography which focuses particularly on his time with "Doctor Who".
