About Mike Tucker

Mike started in the effects business in 1985, when he joined the BBC VFX Department and began a long association with ‘Doctor Who’, he worked as one of Mike Kelt’s assistants on the motion control sequence from ‘The Trial of a Timelord’ before becoming one of the principal effects crew for both Sylvester McCoy’s run as the Doctor and the first seven series of ‘Red Dwarf’.

In 2005 he became one of the first people to have worked on the “classic” series of ‘Doctor Who’ to work on the revived version starring Christopher Eccleston, employed as model unit supervisor for several episodes and overseeing the construction of the new look Daleks.

Mike has been recognised twice by the BAFTA Craft awards for the miniature effects work on ‘The Day of the Doctor.’
