* ''Series/DoctorWho'' has had several actors who played very large numbers of minor roles, and actors who specialised in playing [[PeopleInRubberSuits Rubber Suit Monsters]] and hence appeared as many different "characters". In terms of humanoid characters with significant dialogue, the record is held by Michael Sheard, who played six different named characters in as many stories between 1966 and 1988.
