IMDb profile

Howard Lang (20 March 1911-11 December 1989) played Horg in the Doctor Who television story An Unearthly Child. A veteran of the Royal Navy, Mr. Lang's non-Doctor Who television acting credits included a recurring role in the series Sir Francis Drake (co-starring Roger Delgado and Peter Diamond). He also had parts in such varied series as Dixon of Dock Green, Z-Cars, The Six Wives of Henry VIII and The Persuaders!, but became best known for playing Victorian sailor Captain Baines on The Onedin Line. He also appeared in such films as The Trials of Oscar Wilde, Gorgo, A Night to Remember and The Haunting. Among his last roles was Winston Churchill in the American television mini-series, The Winds of War, in 1983.

Having appeared in the second, third and fourth episodes of the first Doctor Who serial in 1963, Lang coincidentally died five days after the original transmission of Survival Part Three, the last episode of the original TV series.
