Earl Cameron (born 8 August 1917) played Glyn Williams in the Doctor Who story The Tenth Planet.

He is one of the few actors from Bermuda to appear in Doctor Who. He is also the earliest black actor with a speaking role in Doctor Who whose work survives. According to Toby Hadoke, he is the second black actor in a speaking role in the series' history, but his work is the earliest which is known to survive as of July 2015, since The Smugglers guest star Elroy Josephs' contributions are missing.

He claimed to have introduced his agent Terry Carney to William Hartnell's daughter Heather, which led to their marriage and the eventual birth of Jessica Carney, author of Who's There? The Life and Career of William Hartnell. (DCOM: The Tenth Planet)

Following the death of Olaf Pooley in 2015, Cameron became the oldest living Doctor Who actor.
