Letter: Heather Hartnell
In 1983 (Doctor Who Magazine) Heather Hartnell remarked :
"I was a little taken a back and asked if it was a tough guy part. ‘No, it’s an old man with long white hair, an old professor who’s a bit round the bend’. Well, I said ‘Bill will love it’, but Terry still remained a little apprehensive. Anyway, he turned up that evening with the script. Bill took it and sat in absolute silence, reading it through from beginning to end, and eventually said ‘My goodness, I want this part!’. He saw immediately that there was something so different about the whole idea, and once he had got the part he loved it from the very beginning."
In this letter Heather declines her visit to the convention, but continued to be interviewed about her husband's role until her death.
The last image in the sequence is a transcript of the letter.
