Vernon Dobtcheff (born 14 August 1934) is a Franco-British actor.

Dobtcheff was born in Nîmes, France, to a family of Russian descent. He attended Ascham Preparatory School in Eastbourne, Sussex, England, in the 1940s, where he won the Acting Cup. One of his many television roles was as the Chief Scientist in the Doctor Who series The War Games in 1969, in which he became the first actor ever to mention the Time Lords by name.

In his 2006 memoir Red Carpets and Other Banana Skins, British actor Rupert Everett describes an encounter with Dobtcheff on the boat train to Paris, and reveals his extraordinary reputation as the "patron saint" of the acting profession, stating that Dobtcheff "was legendary not so much for his acting as for his magical ability to catch every first night in the country". Widely travelled and prone to pop up in the most unlikely of locales, if unable to attend an opening night, Dobtcheff will still endeavour to send the cast a card wishing the production good luck.

Dobtcheff appeared in the Doctor Who audio drama The Children of Seth in which he plays the role of Shamur.

Au début des années 1930, Reinhard Heydrich, militaire renvoyé de la Reichsmarine, rejoint le nazisme sur la suggestion de sa femme Lina. Il devient alors le bras droit du chef de la SS naissante, Heinrich Himmler. Celui-ci le nomme en 1939 à la tête du RSHA, l'organe principal de police secrète et judiciaire du Reich, dont l'une des sections est la célèbre Gestapo. Principal adjoint de Himmler, il est l’un des hommes les plus puissants du régime. En septembre 1941, Hitler lui donne en complément les attributions de vice-gouverneur de Bohême-Moravie, la partie occupée de la Tchécoslovaquie : pour cela, il a des bureaux à Prague où il règne en maître, car le gouverneur en titre Konstantin von Neurath est vieillissant et malade. Comme Heydrich est resté chef du RSHA, il a aussi pour mission de mener à son terme le plan déjà entamé d’extermination des Juifs d’Europe : la « solution finale de la question juive ».

The film opens with a quote from Céline's Journey to the End of the Night: "To travel is very useful, it makes the imagination work, the rest is just delusion and pain. Our journey is entirely imaginary, which is its strength." The main character is an aging socialite, Jep Gambardella, who once wrote a famous novel in his twenties, only to retire into a comfortable life writing cultural columns and throwing parties in Rome. After his 65th birthday party, he walks through the ruins and city streets, encountering the various characters, reflecting on his life, his first love, and sense of unfulfillment.

In 1984, in Kiev, schoolteacher Andrej Romanovich Evilenko is dismissed from his position after attempting to molest a student. Driven by his psychopathic urges and embittered by the collapse of the Soviet Union, Evilenko begins to rape, kill, and cannibalize women and children. It is hinted throughout the movie that Evilenko somehow gained the power to psychically influence his victims, which accounts for their lack of resistance and his continuous evasion of the authorities.
