Third Doctor Jon Pertwee is the focus of this month’s Doctor Who Magazine reprinting an interview he conducted with two young journalists Matt Adams and David Southwell back in 1994. In the article Jon talks about his early life growing up in a family of actors and playwrights. His time as the Third Doctor as well as his relationships with some of his Doctor Who co-stars at the time. And his time after Doctor Who. Which includes his famous “feud” (to use the phrase very lightly) on camera and at conventions with Second Doctor Patrick Troughton. He also talks very glowingly about his son Sean Pertwee. Who was just starting out on his own respective career at the time the interview was being conducted.
Also inside are some of the romances between characters from the classic and current series in Doctor Who’s Greatest Love Stories. Countdown to 50 looks back at the 1996 Television Movie starring Paul McGann’s only (to date) onscreen appearance as the Eighth Doctor. It also focuses on some memorable moments from the movie as well as a look at both producer Philip Segal and star Paul McGann.
The Doctor’s comic book style adventures continue in part two of Hunters in the Stone where the Doctor is brought together again with his old friends Ian and Barbara.
Fact or Fiction takes a look at Jon Pertwee’s final episode Planet of the Spiders. Along with looking at each part of the episode in depth, it also looks at what could have been the final appearance for Jon Pertwee called The Final Game. Which would have also been the final appearance of Roger Delgado as the Master. Which was not meant to be due to the actor’s untimely death.
