Personal Quote:

After Oliver! (1968), my career didn't develop. I was offered Fagin-type roles but I wanted to do new things. I could have worked in America, but there was a recession in the British film industry and I wanted to work in England. I've no regrets. You take responsibility for your actions. You don't kvetch mble]. Playing Fagin in the play and film was a small miracle. See more »

Trivia:

He declined the opportunity to play the Third Doctor in the popular BBC series Doctor Who (1963), after the departure of Patrick Troughton in 1969. The part eventually went to Jon Pertwee. He later described this as "the worst decision [he] ever made.". See more »
