He was never credited as production designer on Doctor Who, but he directed the plurality of the stories in Seasons 9 and 10. These included the first colour appearance of the Daleks and Roger Delgado's final appearance as the Master.
Bernard's work on Doctor Who was amongst the last work he did for television. He left for a new career in fine arts in the mid-1970s, worked among other things as theatre director.
After the cancellation of the Doctor Who series, Bernard tried to bring the series back, with David Burton as the new Eighth Doctor, producing two episodes independently, partly on a Vienna location, to present and pitch them to the BBC. Bernard's Doctor would have had two companions, twins by the names of Heart and Diamond. The BBC rejected it and the whole thing, reported in Doctor Who magazines, ended before it ever aired.
