DEDICATED TO JON PERTWEE (1919-1996)

"
Jon Pertwee died twenty-four years ago today. He died on May 20, 1996 at the age of seventy-six. He died of a heart attack in his sleep. For those who may not know, Pertwee was a British actor who starred in Doctor Who. He starred in twenty-four episodes from 1970-1974. He died while visiting the USA.
One of Pertwee's teachers told him that he would never make it as an actor. It just goes to show you how wrong people can be. Five years after he quit starring in Doctor Who, he began to star in Worzel Gummidge. He starred as a stupid scarecrow in thirty-one episodes from 1979-1981. Jon was a fantastic actor and he is still missed.
