Just a few months after noting the centenary of Roger Delgados’s birth the Tour remembered, just a little too late as it turns out, about Jon Perrtwee’s 99th. The Tour had been assembling an overall Pertwee update and the spur of a birthday got us to put it online, belatedly.
That Pertwee’s Doctor was a ‘Dandy’ is of course central to his era of the program, but that was reflected also in Pertwee’s own personal sense of style.
And since we were thinking about it, the centenary of Patrick Troughton’s birth will be coming in March 2020. We’ve already got it on our calendars.
