Patrick the Actor:

Apart from the obvious role of Doctor Who (at which, in my opinion, he excelled!), what would be the highlights of Dad’s career? I have been asked this question many times over the years. The parts I consider he was born to play or at least that made a big impact on others and myself. The productions in which Patrick will best be remembered. My list is as follows – and it is partly influenced by family, partly by personal preference and partly by his fans:

 

Hamlet, 1948

Eva Braun, 1950

Treasure Island, 1950

The Invisible Man, 1959

The Scarlet Pimpernel, 1956

The Old Curiosity Shop, 1962
