Personal Quote:

I always said Bill Hartnell (William Hartnell) played him (Doctor Who (1963)) as a grumpy old man because he was a grumpy old man. See more »

Trivia:

In the mid 1990s a parody Doctor Who fanzine called 'Auton' printed a telephone conversation with Dicks in which they pretended to represent a group of fans presenting him with an award for being a "Criminally Underrated National Treasure". The humor, for those who fail to spot it, lies in the initials of the award's name. See more »
