From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia
Frazer Hines (circa 1985).

Frazer Hines (born 22 September 1944, Horsforth Yorkshire) is a British actor best known for his roles as Jamie McCrimmon in the BBC science fiction television series Doctor Who, and Joe Sugden in Emmerdale.

At the age of eight, after studying acting at the Corona Academy, he made his acting debut. He was thirteen when he appeared in Charlie Chaplin's A King in New York (1957) and by the age of fifteen, he had appeared in six films. In 1960 he appeared in the eight-part serial The Young Jacobites. His television roles included The Silver Sword (1957-8), Emergency Ward Ten (1963), and Coronation Street (1965).

In Doctor Who he played the part of Jamie McCrimmon, a companion of the Second Doctor, from 1966 to 1969 as well as reappearing in The Five Doctors (1983) and The Two Doctors (1985).

After his three-year stint as Jamie in Doctor Who he resumed the life of a jabbing actor until 1972, when he was cast in the soap opera Emmerdale Farm as Joe Sugden — a role he has played until 1994. In between making episodes of Emmerdale, as it was renamed in the 1980s, he has continued a career in the theatre and made occasional appearances in other TV shows.

Hines is the only still-living Second Doctor companion actor not to act in a Big Finish Productions Doctor Who audio play (the others have played characters other than their television roles).
