Cover blurb:
"Patrick was an intensely private person, so I was amazed when he started attending conventions!"

PATRICK TROUGHTON was born and raised in North London. During a long and successful career he appeared in countless television dramas, including DOCTOR FINLAY'S CASEBOOK, and THE OLD CURIOSITY SHOP, plus feature films including Laurence Olivier's acclaimed HAMLET.

But it is probably his role as the second DOCTOR WHO that he will be most remembered for. Eccentric, childish, comic, whimsical... the list of facets within his portrayal is long and complex and this reflected much of PATRICK's own personality.

In this tribute MYTH MAKERS we concentrate on what exactly made PATRICK's second Doctor so successful. With contributions from FRAZER HINES, WENDY PADBURY, DEBORAH WATLING, ANNEKE WILLS, MICHAEL CRAZE, SHAUN SUTTON, VICTOR PEMBERTON, DERRICK SHERWIN any [sic] many more!

And for the first time we include an exclusive interview with PATRICK shot at his only UK convention appearance at PanoptiCon VI! The only such interview shot in the UK.
