Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee and William Hartnell as the Doctor

Pertwee and Troughton Steal the Show

In perfect odd couple logic one was off the cuff, looser and more playfully mercurial.  The other, hard-working, a perfectionist and a control freak.

They were two different actors from two different backgrounds that forged a lasting screen partnership that’s still wonderfully snide and entertaining  to this day.

Patrick Troughton and Jon Pertwee both stole the show in The Three Doctors and in Pertwee and Troughton the production team recall the early testy days of rehearsals that lead to a fantastic double act and a lasting friendship.

The clip comes from the Revisitations 3 boxset which also includes The Tomb of the Cybermen and Robots of Death – plus loads of new extra features – is available now to pre-order for an excellent £25.97 from Amazon and is released on 13th February.



About

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
