He also played the title character in the short lived 1973 NBC-TV series The New Perry Mason, which was supposed to be a reboot of the long-running 1957-66 CBS series which starred Raymond Burr.

Markham played the dual role of Luke and Ken Carpenter in the 1967–68 ABC sitcom, The Second Hundred Years.

Portrayed the criminally insane character called Pike in the episode "Power Play" in the 1975 revival of The Invisible Man.


Markham made his Broadway debut in 1973 in Irene, for which he won the Theatre World Award. He also appeared on stage in Same Time, Next Year.


Markham's film work includes Hour of the Gun, Guns of the Magnificent Seven, Midway and Airport 77. He has served as a consultant, director, producer, and narrator for A&E's "Classroom" and "The Great Ships" series.

His most recent role is a role of doctor in upcoming American silent movie Silent Life.
