Well known for his portrayal of Professor Fyodor Nikolai Kerensky in City of Death, Graham also played Charlie in The Gunfighters. A versatile voice-over actor, Graham provided voices for the Mechanoids in The Chase, and also for the Daleks in The Daleks, The Dalek Invasion of Earth, The Chase, Mission to the Unknown and The Daleks' Master Plan, as well as both of the Dalek movies starring Peter Cushing, Dr. Who and the Daleks and Daleks' Invasion Earth 2150 A.D..
Outside Doctor Who, Graham is perhaps best known for providing the voice of "Brains" in the popular "Supermarionation" adventure series, Thunderbirds. He recently reprised that voice for a series of credit card commercials in New Zealand.
