From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Maurice Colbourne (September 24, 1939, Sheffield–August 4, 1989, Brittany) was a British stage and television actor.

Colbourne took his stage name from an earlier film actor who had the same date of birth (in a different year) as his. He first became well known when he played the lead in a BBC drama series, Gangsters, during the mid-1970s, and afterwards appeared regularly on screen. He is best remembered as Tom Howard in the 1980s serial, Howards' Way, a part he was still playing when he died suddenly of a heart attack.

He twice appeared in the science fiction series Doctor Who as the character Lytton; in Resurrection of the Daleks (1984) and Attack of the Cybermen (1985).
