You two are killing me! I want this new version now. But my husband is going to be seriously upset if, on top of all my other DW spending, I start re-buying stories! Evil or Very Mad

Despite The Daemons leaving me cold, I still love me some Pertwee era Doctor. I chose Frontiers in Space for its tight writing, great sets and costuming, and just all around good fun.

Kinda cool news:

Moon Boots And Dinner Suits

Fantom Publishing are to reprint Jon Pertwee's first autobiography, Moon Boots and Dinner Suits. Originally published in 1984, publisher Dexter O'Neill said:
We are thrilled to bring this autobiography to a new generation. The book has been out of print for over twenty-six years. We will retain all the original content, whilst adding new material including photographs and an introduction from Ingeborg Pertwee.
The autobiography is due to be published on 4th February 2013 in both paperback and hardback, with an audiobook to be announced shortly.

Jon Pertwee’s acting career began with a public performance at the age of four. He seems to have been expelled from most of the schools his actorwriter father Roland Pertwee sent him to and finally joined RADA in 1936.

From there too, he was asked to leave. Jon went into Rep and had a checkered career. In Brighton panic set in when he dressed as an old gardener in Love from a Stranger instead of as a young cleric in Candida.

In 1938 came Jon’s first radio role in the BBC’s Lillibulero, in which year he also appeared in his father’s play, To Kill a Cat, directed by Henry Kendall at the Aldwych Theatre. When war came he joined the Navy, ramming Douglas Pier with an Isle of Man Stream Packet boat. He was blown up twice, once being put on a marble slab presumed dead, and spent many months stationed in the Scapa Flow. He was the founder of the Service Players in the Isle of Man. He was commissioned in the RNVR and transferred to Naval Intelligence where he worked and became good friends with the future Prime Minister James Callaghan. Then Jon joined Naval Broadcasting. His radio series, The Navy Lark, ran for eighteen years and produced some truly vintage memories of radio.

Whether telling stories of a misspent youth, of his posterior’s first painful introduction to a fives bat or his exploits with the McKenzie sisters in the north of Scotland, Jon Pertwee's humour and natural wit never fail him. Moon Boots and Dinner Suits is a wry, funny and endearing portrait of the early years of a most innovative and well-loved actor.

After discussing it in chat yesterday, I thought I do some digging around for a picture of Jon Pertwee from his appearance in The Avengers episode "From Venus with Love."



(of course the episode was "Venusian...")

(and of course he played a Brigadier...)

(and of course it was in their first colour episode he appeared...)

This is AMAZING news! I have been looking for this book for ages! I'm glad I never got around to paying the exorbitant prices on the net.

Did they have any word on Jon Pertwee's second autobiography, I Am The Doctor?

I am so excited that this book is being reprinted!! I have wanted it for years but it was just way too expensive. Such an exciting time to be in the Pertwee Posse!

There was no mention of that particular book when I read the article for Moon Boots And Dinner Suits.

I wish they would reprint that one as well.
