Real Time | Interviews | Stewart Lee
Annual favourite
Stewart Lee PictureCould you tell us your first memory of Doctor Who?

My first memory of Doctor Who is not actually the telly programme but the cover of one of the annuals. It was a Jon Pertwee one with lots of scientific equipment on the front, which looks really like the cover of a Who compilation album that came out in the late ‘70s as well.

Did the Doctor used to scare you in the early days?

Yeah obviously. And still a bit today actually. When I was in there [recording], there was a scene where this guy who’s a double agent, he’d double crossed the Doctor and tried to get it together with the Cybermen, gets made into a Cyberman. It unsettled me.

I’m not sure whether it was the actual scene that I was in today [that did it] or whether it was kind of a memory of how scary that would have been when I was a kid.
