Hailing from Statford-on-Avon, Mark Strickson was raised in the village of Ilmington. Coming from a musical family, Strickson learned to play several instruments – including singing in the Trinity Church choir. Strickson attended RADA, where he studied music and acting.
Strickson had his first television roles in Celebration, Strangers, Angels and Juliet Bravo. After being auditioned for the role of Turlough, Strickson had to choose between taking the role on Doctor Who or continuing with the part of an ambulance driver in Angels. Fortunately, he chose the role that saw him become the companion of the fifth Doctor and a firm fan-favourite.
After leaving Doctor Who, Strickson went onto play the young Scrooge in A Christmas Carol (1985). In 1988, he took a break from acting and moved to Australia with his wife, actress Julie Brennan, and studied for a degree in zoology. He later returned to the UK in 1995, where Strickson went onto produce a number of wildlife films for television.
