Actor JOBY BLANSHARD

In Doomwatch - The Red Sky
Joby Blanshard as Colin Bradley
Joby Blanshard
Born 17 November 1919
Died 26 November 1992 (Age 73)
Born in Beverley, Yorkshire, England, UK

Joby Blanshard played Colin Bradley in DOOMWATCH. Bradley, or 'Brad', was always at work in Doomwatch offices, analysing some substance or rigging up an experiment or complaining about problems with the Doomwatch computer, a digital/analogue hybrid which he built.

One factor of making the episodes look dated is seeing Bradley doing complex calculations on a mechanical adding machine as opposed to a calculator, and at the time the episode Friday's Child was criticized for showing antiquated pieces of equipment in Dr Patrick's lab. Bradley seldom appeared without wearing his white lab coat and with his forthrightness and blunt Northern accent he lasted all three seasons and proved an excellent anchor man. On finding a new form of pollution, Quist would return to the offices where he would confidently hand it over to Brad, who, within the hour, would cheerfully provide all the required information. Joby Blanshard had been a character actor for several years, with appearances in episodes of THE AVENGERS and ADAM ADAMANT LIVES!.
