The Metamorph

Eagle pilot, married 2 months prior to The Metamorph to Annette. His wife does not appear in other episodes (and he is never in the same room with her in The Metamorph either). In some episodes he steps up into Alan Carter's post so presumably he is his deputy. It is hard to explain why an Eagle pilot wears the red colour code.

His surname is spelt "Frazer" in some scripts (Catacombs Of The Moon, The Beta Cloud, A Matter Of Balance, Bringers Of Wonder). In others it is spelt "Fraser" (The Metamorph, Devil's Planet, The Immunity Syndrome and The Dorcons). The credits always used "Fraser". According to his name badge, he is "B Fraser" - so Bill is his given name (Bill is normally an informal version of "William")

Featured in 9 episodes: The Metamorph, The Taybor, The Mark Of Archanon, Brian The Brain, AB Chrysalis, The Beta Cloud, A Matter Of Balance, Devil's Planet, The Immunity Syndrome.

He was scripted to appear in Catacombs Of The Moon, Bringers Of Wonder and The Dorcons. In some episodes he played parts that were scripted for others: The Taybor (Alan Carter), The Mark Of Archanon (Palmer) and Brian The Brain (Eagle One Pilot).
