Doctor Who stars to be honoured by Heritage plaques

The Heritage Foundation is holding a special tribute to the cult television programme Doctor Who on Sunday 19 May. Television Heritage blue plaques in honour of the first three actors to play the legendary time traveller – William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton and Jon Pertwee – will be unveiled at BBC Television Centre, Wood Lane, London W12 by family of the actors and cast members of the show.

The service will be attended by William Hartnell's granddaughter Jessica Carney, Jon Pertwee's widow Ingeborg, actor son Sean and his cousin, Dad's Army star Bill.

Many members of the cast of Doctor Who will also be present, including Colin Baker (the sixth Doctor), William Russell and Carole Ann Ford (companions to William Hartnell's Doctor), Deborah Watling, Anneke Wills and Fraser Hines (companions to Patrick Troughton), Elizabeth Sladen (companion to Jon Pertwee and Tom Baker), Nicholas Courtney (The Brigadier) and Richard Franklin (Captain Mike Yates), plus the series' first producer Verity Lambert and longest-serving script editor Terrance Dicks.

Following the ceremony there will be a charity lunch hosted by the Heritage Foundation at The Grosvenor House, Park Lane.

New online adventures of Doctor Who can be seen on www.bbc.co.uk/cult/doctorwho.
