Hugh David
Born July 17, 1925 – Died September 11,1987

Hugh David was an actor turned television director. He was born in Aberystwyth, Wales. His directorial credits include Compact, Z Cars, The Pallisers and Doctor Who, for which he directed two stories in the Patrick Troughton era. While still an actor in the early 1960s, he had actually turned down the leading role in Doctor Who when it was offered to him by his friend, the producer Rex Tucker. David later stated that as he had recently starred in the Granada Television series Knight Errant and disliked the high public profile it brought him, he was not keen to take on another leading role.
