Forester

Last updated 19 July 2013




Forester was a businessman who backed the creation of a new anti-pesticide DN6. With his fortunes dependent upon its success, he attempted to cover up a report from Farrow about the product's lethal consequences by murdering the government scientist, but raised the suspicions of local telephone operator Hilda Rowse, whose husband and local policeman Bert Rowse then investigated and arrested Forester and DN6 developer Smithers.

The character was played by Alan Tilvern in the original recorded Planet of Giants; for the reconstructed episodes three and four of the story for its DVD release, the role was portrayed by Toby Hadoke.
