Jon Pertwee's 50th Anniversary
by Randy Johnson Bookmark and Share

Even though I hate the new Doctor Who TV show, I loved the classic Doctor Who. The classic Doctor Who TV show aired from 1963-1989. It is the longest running sci-fi TV show in existence. I began watching the classic series in 1984.

Jon Pertwee was the third actor to play the Doctor and today is the 50th anniversary of his first episode. Fifty years ago today on January 3 1970, part one of Pertwee's first episode was aired. It's titled 'Spearhead From Space'. This was the very first Doctor Who episode that was in color.

Pertwee was one of my favorite actors who portrayed the Doctor and was one of the best Doctors of all time. His version of the Doctor was inspired by James Bond. He starred in twenty-four episodes from 1970-1974. It was half a century ago today when his portrayal of the Doctor began.

Several years after he quit, Pertwee began to star as a talking scarecrow named Worzel Gummidge. Sadly, Pertwee died of a heart attack on May 20 1996 at the age of 76. He was visiting the USA when he died. Pertwee had many fans and will not be forgotten.
