Buddhist homosexual traitor Mike Yates (played by Richard Franklin) was a captain at UNIT during the Third Doctor's era.


First showed up in Terror of the Autons. He turned traitor in Invasion of the Dinosaurs and was allowed to "resign quietly" from UNIT but showed up again in Pertwurst's final story Planet of the Spiders.

Refused to take the hint and continued showing up, first in The Five Doctors and again in Dimensions In Time.


He and Jo totally had a thing going before she completely forgot about him to go bang Clifford Jones.

Did you know you can pay him £10 to jack you off?
