As the Golden Sweep of History finishes washing through Jon Pertwee’s Season 10, arriving at The Green Death. For those who would, as sometimes happened, decry the classic series as being un-emotional when compared to 2005 and beyond, we offer the first truly emotive, we hasten to add in the view of the Tour, companion departure–that of Jo Grant leaving the Tardis to marry Clifford Jones. But understated does not mean un-emotional, and her exit to Stewart Bevan’s Jones gets us every time.
Okay so it’s not a new revelation, but still …. Just one more parallel, however unintentional, between The Enemy Within and the Pertwee era.
Bevan passed away in February of last year. One of many actors who may have had Doctor Who cross their career path just once, but who were always well remembered for that moment.
