I think Jon (Jon Pertwee) was a very strong Doctor. I never liked him as the Doctor and I knew Jon very well and liked him very much as a person, we were actually good friends off screen.
I didn't enjoy Doctor Who (1963) when it got bogged down in England and UNIT and all that. I got really bored with all that.
It was an extraordinary place, the BBC, in the Sixties and Seventies, it really was. It was the place to work and the standards were very, very high. I think it was the golden age of television to a large extent. We can do things technically now that are so much better and so on and so on and so on, I don't think television has actually improved. I think it was wonderful then.
