Cast biographies

Biographies, autobiographies and memoirs of well-known Doctor Who actors.

Jon Pertwee was the first Doctor Who star to write his autobiography, with Moon Boots and Dinner Suits in 1984 (though ironically this only covers his early life and doesn't mention Who at all).

Starting in the late 1990s, such biographies and autobiographies have become a regular occurence — even more so after the launch of the new series in 2005.

Many of these memoirs are also available in audio form, listed elsewhere on the site, namely: William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee, Tom Baker, Anneke Wills, Deborah Watling, Elisabeth Sladen, John Leeson, Matthew Waterhouse, Nicholas Courtney, Anthony Ainley, John Barrowman and Matt Lucas.
