Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[on A Very Peculiar Practice (1986)] The writing was so poignant, so funny - and it was one of the few anti-Thatcher (Margaret Thatcher) series. I'm not sure the BBC realised what gold it had in its hands.

Trivia:

In the early 1970s, he shared a flat with Colin Baker. Both Baker and his father Patrick Troughton are best known for playing the Doctor in Doctor Who (1963). Baker was later the best man at his wedding to Alison Groves and the godfather of his eldest son Sam Troughton. See more »
