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:

In 1989 he was charged with tax evasion. Thanks to the work of George Carman QC who defended him, he was acquitted. For a while afterwards he used the experience in his stage acts, introducing himself by saying "Good evening, my name is Kenneth Arthur Dodd: singer, photographic playboy and failed accountant".
