Gabriel Woolf (born 2 October 1932) is an English film, radio and television actor.
Woolf renewed his association with Doctor Who in 1981 by reading three novelisations of Doctor Who stories for the Royal National Institute of Blind People. The books were The Three Doctors, Doctor Who and the Carnival of Monsters and Doctor Who and the Loch Ness Monster, all written by Terrance Dicks.
He joined up with the Doctor again by performing in the Big Finish Productions audio play Arrangements for War and its sequel, Thicker than Water. He also appeared on the Pyramids of Mars DVD in a sketch called Oh Mummy: Sutekh's Story and a documentary piece titled Osiran Gothic.
In 2005, he returned to work with the writers of Oh Mummy, appearing in the Doctor Who DVD extra Eye On Blatchford as the demented Doctor Amadeus Gowel. In the Magic Bullet Faction Paradox audio plays Coming to Dust (2005), The Ship of a Billion Years (2006) and Body Politic (2008), all written by Lawrence Miles, Woolf reprises his role as Sutekh.
In the 2006 series of Doctor Who, Woolf returned to provide the voice of "The Beast" in the two part story "The Impossible Planet" and "The Satan Pit". His many parts on BBC Radio include Shakespeare's Romeo and Inspector Charles Parker in the dramatisations of the Lord Peter Wimsey mysteries.
He toured with the author Colin Dexter, performing readings to accompany Dexter's talks.
Woolf is also a Vice President of the Joyful Company of Singers.
