Skipping and other activities

Dear Tom,

There's a scene in Dr Who 'Robot' where you and Ian Marter are skipping together. It looks like it must have been tricky to make, so, a friend and I got to wondering if you can recall other occasions during your acting career when you were called on to do something that was technically difficult because an unusual skill was required - e.g. skipping, juggling, drinking a yard of ale, etc? And did (do) you enjoy such challenges?

Or, if nothing comes to mind, do you remember much about making that Dr Who skipping scene?

Regards (from us both)

Dear Ty

The skipping scene was invented by Christopher Barry who also devised the little rhyme. We enjoyed doing it. Ian was very agile.

All good wishes, Tom
