Mark Eden (born 14 February 1928) is a British actor.[1]


Born in London, Eden has appeared in repertory theatre in England and Wales and at the Royal Court Theatre. His many television and film roles include the Doctor Who serial Marco Polo (1964) in which he played Marco Polo, a reporter in Quatermass and the Pit in 1958, Number 100 in The Prisoner in 1967, and Inspector Parker in the TV adaptations of several Lord Peter Wimsey stories in the 1970s. He also had a long running role in Coronation Street (1986–1989) in which he played Alan Bradley. His exit from this role was famously being knocked down by a Blackpool tram. At the location there is now a tram stop which recalls this scene.[citation needed]
