John Levene’s best known role was that of Corporal, and later Warrant Officer John Benton of UNIT in the classic series of Doctor Who opposite the third Doctor, Jon Pertwee.
Levene’s first acting role was in the television series Adam Adamant Lives! Other TV roles included episodes of Callan (1970) and The Adventurer (1972), and he also appeared in the films Go for a Take (1972), Dark Places (1973), Psychomania (1973), and Permission to Kill (1975). He made an uncredited appearance as a Cyberman in the 1967 Doctor Who serial The Moonbase and as a Yeti in The Web of Fear, before making his first appearance as then-Corporal Benton of UNIT in The Invasion (1968). The Web of Fear was, incidentally, the serial that introduced Benton’s commanding officer, Brigadier Alastair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart, who was only a colonel at the time. Lethbridge-Stewart and UNIT were featured heavily in early 1970s Doctor Who, and the promoted Sergeant Benton also became a regular.
