Sean Pertwee reveals he was asked to be in Doctor Who

Since Doctor Who returned to our screens in 2005, we’ve seen the appearance of both of Patrick Traughton’s sons. Fans have often expressed their desire to have Sean Pertwee appear-in either a cameo, or as the third Doctor.

In a recent interview with the radio times, Pertwee revealed that he was actually approached to appear in series 9. But due to his commitments with Gotham, he was unable to do so.


Here’s what he had to say:

“I’ve been asked before – I was asked actually last season. I couldn’t do it because of Gotham. I’d love to be in some capacity be involved, as an ode to my father and to Roger Delgado, who was my dad’s best friend, who was the Master.

It’d be an honour to be involved in something like that. You know, it’s a big thing! Doctor Who’s a massive thing in America now, and also they’re looking to the older Doctors, which I think is really kinda cool. They’re looking back as well, not just forward.”
