Brian Reginald Miller (born 17 April 1941) is a British actor. He has performed in various Doctor Who productions, appearing as Dugdale in the serial Snakedance (1983), providing Dalek voices in Resurrection of the Daleks (1984) and Remembrance of the Daleks (1988), playing the role of Wiston in the 2005 stage production of The Trial of Davros, and playing the tramp Barney in the 2014 episode "Deep Breath".

Miller played Mr. Buttle in Terry Gilliam's 1985 film Brazil.

Other television series in which he has appeared include Blake's 7 (in the episode "Horizon"), The Bill, Angels and Casualty.

On 8 June 1968, Miller married actress Elisabeth Sladen in Liverpool. 5 years later, Sladen took on the role of Sarah Jane Smith, a long-term Companion on Doctor Who, though her performance on the show did not overlap with the episodes Miller took part in. Their marriage lasted until her death on 19 April 2011.

After the departure of his wife from Doctor Who, they returned to Liverpool and performed in a series of plays. This included a two-person production with Sladen in Mooney and his Caravans. A notable TV appearance was Miller playing the husband of Sladen in the ITV drama Send In The Girls.

Miller and their daughter, Sadie Miller, performed with Sladen in a number of Sarah Jane Smith audio plays, released by Big Finish Productions.

Miller appeared alongside his wife in the The Sarah Jane Adventures, as Harry the caretaker in the serial "The Mad Woman in the Attic" (2009). He has an occasional role in the radio serial The Archers as Jason the builder.

More recently, Miller briefly played Cliff Pughes in Coronation Street and Mark in Wizards vs Aliens.
