Re: Pertwee was an even bigger badass than we thought
Is there any independent corroboration for these claims, though?
A good point. Pertwee did have a habit of emboidering his stories a bit (at cons, cynical people like myself would hold a sweepstake on how long into his panels it would be before a familiar story suddenly gained an astonishing new twist. EG, like the the story of his escaped pet Cheetah, which initially just got into the neighbour's garden, then got into a neighbour's back garden barbecue party, then into the vicar's garden party, then there was visiting royalty at the garden party...).
