Hi again Tom,

Back when your DW was on the telly, ( a time when I lived behind the sofa ), we only had a black and white set. We didn't get colour until 1980, so most of what we saw was a grey TARDIS, a stripey grey scarf and grey monsters e.t.c. Not to mention grey assistants.
Filming at that time, were there any considerations towards non colour viewers knowing that many of us weren't seeing the full picture, if you see what I mean ?

Dear John,

All my stuff was in colour as you know. But we gave no thought to black and white sets or their owners. I'm sorry you had to wait until 1980. Have you since seen my stuff in colour? If you have, let me know what you think as I never watched it.

But how I enjoyed doing it!
