Clement Graham Crowden (30 November 1922 – 19 October 2010)[1][2] was a Scottish actor. He was best known for his many appearances in television comedy dramas and films, often playing eccentric "offbeat" scientist, teacher and doctor characters.
Crowden was born in Edinburgh, the son of Anne Margaret (née Paterson) and Harry Graham Crowden.[3] He was educated at Clifton Hall School and the Edinburgh Academy before serving briefly in the Royal Scots Youth Battalion of the army until he was injured in a bizarre accident. During arms drill, he was shot by his sergeant-major when his rifle discharged. The sergeant said "What is it now, Crowden?" Crowden replied, "I think you've shot me, sergeant." He later found work in a tannery.

  • He has performed with the National Theatre.
  • He was offered the role of the fourth Doctor in the BBC series _"Doctor Who" (1963)_ (qv) after the departure of 'Jon Pertwee' (qv), but he didn't want to commit himself to one role.
  • He is the father of 'Sarah Crowden' (qv).
