Kevin Stoney (22 January 1921 – 22 January 2008) was an English actor. He was best known for his television roles, in which he became familiar for his "portrayal of establishment types".
During the Second World War, Stoney served with the Royal Air Force. On television, he appeared in three serials of the science fiction series Doctor Who over a period of ten years, playing Mavic Chen in The Daleks' Master Plan (1965), Tobias Vaughn in The Invasion (1968) and Tyrum in Revenge of the Cybermen (1975). Stoney also appeared in two episodes of another BBC science fiction series, Blake's 7, playing Councillor Joban in the episode Hostage and Ardus in the episode Animals. He also played the astrologer Thrasyllus in the 1976 BBC adaptation of I, Claudius, a role he had earlier played in Granada Television's 1969 series The Caesars.
Other credits include: The Adventures of Robin Hood, The Saint, Danger Man, The Avengers, Dr. Finlay's Casebook, The Prisoner, Softly, Softly, Man in a Suitcase, The Troubleshooters, Doomwatch, Freewheelers, Z-Cars, The Tomorrow People, Ace of Wands, Special Branch, The Onedin Line, Fall of Eagles, Space: 1999, The New Avengers, Quatermass, Hammer House of Horror, Bergerac, All Creatures Great and Small, The Bill and in the highest rated episode of Inspector Morse.
In 1985, it was reported in the Doctor Who fan magazine DWB that Stoney had died at the age of 64, but in 1987 he made an appearance at a Doctor Who convention to prove he was very much alive, to the shock of the fans. He retired in 1993.
