1I think the essential thing about Doctor Who (1963) was that... I don't mean he should be elderly but I thought he must have a huge great presence and at least be a sort of middle-aged man who could look after all problems, as it were, and I think after Tom Baker I actually myself thought that it lost some of its magic. In that way it worked with the children better and it also I thought worked with the adults as well.
2Let dramatists call a spade a spade. But the point can usually be made without calling it a four-letter shovel.
1He was an old friend of the actor Jon Pertwee. When Pertwee was cast as the star of Doctor Who (1963) in 1969, Sutton famously advised him to play the part as himself, which Pertwee duly did, and became one of the most popular and longest-serving Doctors ever.
2He was the head of BBC Television Drama from 1969-1981.
3He was an Associate Member of RADA (Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London, England).
4He was awarded the OBE (Officer of the Order of the British Empire) in 1979 for is services to television drama.
