David Benson

Noel Coward in Goodnight Sweetheart

David Benson is an actor, writer and comedian who made his name with his one-man show titled Think No Evil of Us: My Life with Kenneth Williams about the life and career of the late actor, for which he won the Scotsman's Fringe First award in 1996. Perhaps best known to many as Noel Coward from the 90's time-travel comedy series Goodnight Sweetheart, David Benson's career started years earlier when he wrote for Jackanory starring Kenneth Williams. Fans of sci-fi may also recognise David from his role as Herald from Doctor Who episode Robot of Sherwood and Blade Runner 2049 where he played the Hologram of Liberace.

David also plays the recurring role of Panda in the Iris Wildthyme series, a collection of humorous audio dramas for Big Finish, which stars former Doctor Who companion Katy Manning. When not touring in the theatre he can be found on BBC radio, playing all the character parts in the science fiction comedy series The Scarifyers.
