THE FUNERAL of Dr Who star Jon Pertwee took place yesterday at an undisclosed cemetery in London.

Pertwee (76) died last Monday while on holiday in America. He was with his German-born novelist wife Ingeborg.

At her request journalists and fans were not notified of the ceremony which was for close family and friends only. his agent said yesterday.

Pertwee lived in Putney, London, for many years and the funeral was reportedly also attended by broadcaster and long time friend David Jacobs. A memorial service is being planned for later this year.

Pertwee enjoyed a long and successful stage and radio career before becoming the third Doctor Who in 1970.

His most popular appearance in the sci-fi series was in a Three Doctors episode which was watched by 10.3 million people.

He left the BBC drama in 1974 after 128 editions and later showed his mastery of dialect as Worzel Gummidge, the TV scarecrow.

Before his death Pertwee was planning a new comedy series with actor Richard Briers. He leaves a son and a daughter.
