The Five Doctor's

Hello Tom.

After having initially shown interest in doing the Five Doctor's, what was it that ultimately led to your decision to back out of the project?

Dear John,

This is a frequently asked question. The five doctors came about not long after I had left the show. I was still feeling very proprietorial about the part and thought it too soon to come back for what I thought was a novelty act. Also, at that time John Nathan-Turner and I did not always agree about style and tone in telling the script. I felt I cwould not agree with JNT or the others; just imagine the clash of egos on the set!

Much later I became friendly with John and we had many good times together. I was very sad he and Garry Downie died so young and so close together.

There you are.

All good wishes from Tom
