|~ Bartle objecting to the Ood being sold for 50 credits.|
Mr. Bartle is a minor antagonist in the Doctor Who episode "Planet of the Ood". He was portrayed by Paul Clayton.
Bartle was the managing director of Ood Operations, an organization that bred creatures known as the Ood to be sold into slavery. As a high-ranking executive, he had his own personal Ood servant and viewed all commercials before they were released.
Mr. Bartle considered the company's CEO Klineman Halpen to be an idiot because he reduced the price of the Ood to 50 credits. After complaining about this, claiming that Halpen was bleeding them dry, he ordered his Ood servant to bring him the military files to see how many could be sold to the army. He contacted his assistant Solana to give her instructions on an upcoming auction. His Ood purposely gave him the wrong files, telling him they were irrelevant. Unknown to Bartle, the Ood was infected with red-eye and had murder on its mind.
Bartle demanded to know why the files were irrelevant, but all he got for his trouble was the Ood servant attacking him and electrocuting him to death.
