  • Doctor Who CITY OF DEATH director Michael Hayes very RARE signed photo

8x10 inch photo from the Doctor Who series 'City of Death' signed by series Director the late Michael Hayes.

This was signed at his home on July 23rd 2013. Doctor Who memorabilia signed by Michael is VERY rare.

Michael Hayes directed the Doctor Who serials The Androids of Tara, The Armageddon Factor and City of Death.

Hayes was initially reluctant to direct Doctor Who, which he thought of as "a children's show with dodgy effects". 

However, due to his friendship with head of serials Graeme MacDonald and producer Graham Williams, he agreed to do one, hoping it would never actually happen. He came to like the show, agreeing to do two more.

For City of Death, Hayes travelled to Paris. In this story, he made a 'Hitchcock' appearance as the shifty-looking passenger wearing a cloth cap and carrying a metal case seen exiting the train at the Metro station Boiss?re after the Doctor and Romana – as well as dubbing one of the lines where a gendarme tells the Fourth Doctor that the Mona Lisa has been stolen.

Hayes was a newsreader for the BBC World Service for many years.

Other works include Skorpion, All Creatures Great and Small, Prince Regent, The Standard, When the Boat Comes In, Rooms, The Onedin Line, Oil Strike North, Churchill's People, Play for Today, Thirty-Minute Theatre, The Sextet, Take Three Girls, Jenny IV, The Wednesday Play, The Promise, The Troubleshooters, The Jazz Age, Theatre 625, A Flea in Her Ear, Boy Meets Girl, Thirteen Against Fate, The Spies, Sherlock Holmes, Cluff, Detective, First Night, Maigret, BBC Sunday-Night Play, Moonstrike, A for Andromeda, An Age of Kings
