Personal Quote:

[on his performance in Doctor Who: The Curse of Fenric: Part 1 (1989)] I'm very flattered as I've always loved the show and it's nice to be associated with something which is a cult, but to be in one of the best episodes of a cult show has been to me one of the most treasured memories. See more »

Trivia:

Originally chosen to be the Gamesmaster in Gamesmaster (1992), but the application of the facial distortion techniques didn't work properly so Patrick Moore was ultimately chosen instead. See more »
