Andrew Dunn What's your earliest memory of Doctor Who?

The very first episode. That’s how old I am. I was born in Leeds and I remember – I must have been 5 or 6 - watching an old black and white television and it was William Hartnell as the Doctor. It was fascinating, this blue police box, the TARDIS and all this blinking machinery and everything.

I was always frightened of every creature I came across. I remember these creatures that were like giant ants [the Zarbi] and things that crept out of the cliff and I was cowering behind the settee at that. Daleks always used to scare me because I’d never seen anything like them. I always remember it because it was Doctor Who, Dixon of Dock Green and tea. William Hartnell, I still remember him as the Doctor really, even though there’s been six or seven others.
