|Character Name||Bob Mathias|
|Played by||Anton Phillips|
23 end credits
Age 32, born 1967.
In 1997 he appears to be in charge of Medical (Dragon's Domain) but by 1999 he is Dr Helena Russell's deputy. Alternatively the more senior medical chief in 1997 may not have been present when the Ultra Probe was brought in; or the chief was a scientific appointment who would not be involved in treatment. In any case, Mathias does not seem to resent Helena. He is devoted to his job.
He is featured in 21 episodes of Year 1 (not The Last Enemy, The Infernal Machine, Mission Of The Darians) and 2 episodes of Year 2 (The Metamorph and The Exiles, although he is mentioned in One Moment Of Humanity).
