Stunt Performer, TV Actor
Who is Stuart Fell?
Stuart Fell is a professional actor and stuntman. Prior to this career, Fell served in the Parachute Regiment. He has appeared on British television many times, with his earliest role being in the LWT comedy series Hark at Barker, in which he plays the driver of a car that crashes when he's distracted by Ronnie Barker carrying a mannequin. In 1971, he appeared as an uncredited extra in the Doctor Who serial Terror of the Autons, and his last role came in 1998, as a stuntman in Duck Patrol.
He worked in over twenty Doctor Who stories in all, from 1971 to 1983, most often as a stuntman or extra, though he served once as a fight arranger in 1981. He was Dennis Moore on horseback in Monty Pythons Flying Circus. Literally sitting in for John Cleese.
His small size made him ideal for a number of roles- he was able to get inside a number of small, cramped costumes and even doubled for Katy Manning and Louise Jameson. His large range of varied skills also earned him considerable praise. In several DVD commentaries, a number of people have remarked that "he could do anything" from juggling, fire-breathing, acrobatics, stilt-walking and ride a motorcycle. As a relatively young new-comer to stunt work, he was eager to prove himself. One example was in The Claws of Axos, where he is shot and then flipped backwards on a wire rig.
