Yesterday July 7th… in 1919, a beloved Doctor Who star was born. Third Doctor Jon Pertwee may be gone, but he is certainly not forgotten by his family, friends – and companions.

Pertwee’s son, Gotham actor Sean Pertwee, was one of the first to pay tribute to his father, the “übermensch” who would have been 97 today.

Happy Birthday Pa ! 7/7/1919-20/5/1996 #DW3 #übermensch

Katy Manning, who played Doctor Who companion Jo Grant alongside Pertwee, also paid tribute to her “wonderful Jon” on his birthday.

“Thinking of my wonderful Jon on his birthday xxxx”

Sean Pertwee has already spoken about how “it would be an honour” to play his father’s incarnation of the Doctor, but added, “They’re large boots to fill.”

That’s as may be, but the resemblance is uncanny – especially when Sean puts on his Dad’s costume.

The resemblance is uncanny – and it’s not the first time Sean has invoked the memory of his departed father, previously dressing up as the Third Doctor for Halloween and totally rocking the cravat/cape look as you can see below.
