The star of Doctor Who, The Navy Lark and Worzel Gummidge, actor Jon Pertwee entertains an audience with his one-man biographical show - sharing tales from his very early days through to his career highlights.

Jon recalls life at school and in the navy during the war. Staying afloat, he moves onto working on popular BBC radio comedy The Navy Lark - and reveals how one of his co-stars was instrumental in him taking over from Patrick Troughton as Doctor Who for BBC TV in the 1970s.

Later when playing Worzel Gummidge for Southern TV, Jon loved being able to change heads - and he also reveals how he stood up to Kenneth Williams on a Carry On film!
