have a real fondness for this story, because I
was responsible for getting my Dad the part of
Professor Travers. It call came about because
I saw the script whilst we were filming Tomb Of
The Cybermen and I said to Innes Lloyd about my
father playing the part. Innes said ask him when
you go home tonight. So that evening when I went
home, I said "Hey, Dad. Do you fancy doing
six weeks of Doctor Who with me?" Of course
his answer was yes, and he was so good in the
part that they actually wrote another story to
involve him later on.
was always proud of his part in Doctor Who, and
used to say to me, "Deb's - you're the only
one in our family ever to get me a job!"
