Julian Glover (born 27th March 1935) played Richard the Lionheart in The Crusade and Scaroth in City of Death.

Outside of Doctor Who, he is probably best known for playing General Maximilian Veers in Star Wars and Walter Donovan in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. He also played the villain Kristatos in the James Bond film For Your Eyes Only and has also contributed voice acting work to the Harry Potter film series.

Glover once confided to interviewer Gary Russell that William Hartnell wasn't "much fun to work with" but that he very much enjoyed the company of William Russell and Jacqueline Hill. He called Maureen O'Brien "one of the most enchanting women that has ever lived and breathed". He also volunteered that he would've "loved to have been Doctor Who". (BBC DVD: Lost in Time) As for this time on City of Death, surviving outtakes included on the DVD release show Glover in good spirits and having fun during scene breakdowns and shooting a time-lapse sequence.
