William Marlowe (25 July 1930 – 31 January 2003) was a British theatre, television and film actor.

He served in the Fleet Air Arm and hoped for a career as a writer before training as an actor at RADA. He was cast in A Family at War (1970–72), as Harry Mailer in the Doctor Who serial The Mind of Evil (1971), as Sir Guy of Gisbourne in The Legend of Robin Hood (1975) and as DCI Bill Russell in The Gentle Touch (1980–84)

He reappeared in Doctor Who as Lester in Revenge of the Cybermen (1975). His guest star roles include Barlow (1975), Breakaway (1980), Callan (1972) and Catch Hand (1964). Later he played Chief Supt. Thomas in The Chief (1990).

He was married to actress Linda Marlowe (née Bathurst) from 1958–1967, to actress Catherine Schell from 1968–1977, and to Kismet Delgado (née Shahani), the widow of actor Roger Delgado, from 1983 until his death in 2003, aged 72. Many books falsely claim that he was once married to actress Fernanda Marlowe.
