I 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.

Dad 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!"
