7 July 1919-20 May 1996

MY FIRST MEETING with Jon Pertwee was at my audition for Doctor Who and it set the seal for a wonderful relationship. He was so gracious but then he was the "Gentleman Doctor". When filming our first story together I backed his car into the props van — but he still gave me a lift home!

Jon always loved humour in a script and there were always times for great laughs. I adored being part of the Doctor Who team where it was "all for one and one for all".

Jon was wonderful with young fans my daughter included, and was delighted when she told him that her favourite character was Worzel Gummidge. His photo is still on her noticeboard. Her latest school project is to write an account of living on a strange planet called "Scorpio". She wants to dedicate this story to Jon.

We will all miss him.
