Personal Quote:

I love science fiction, I'm a sci-fi addict. I started with the Triffids [The Day of the Triffids (1963)] and Isaac Asimov. I devour science fiction. But I love Doctor Who (1963) because Doctor Who (1963) is a lovely mixture of science fiction and whimsy as well. There's a lot of comedy in Doctor Who (1963). See more »

Trivia:

Dodd was a supporter of the Conservatives under Margaret Thatcher and campaigned during the 1979 general election campaign, which first brought her to power. In the last rally, in Wembley Arena, he introduced her on to the stage. See more »
