Publisher's Summary

Respected and loved, Patrick Troughton is probably best remembered as the second Doctor Who - a role in which he made television history. A prolific actor, he was also a complex and troubled man, constantly wrestling with two lives, one of which he was determined to keep secret.

Michael Troughton presents here an entertaining and personal account of his father’s professional and private life. Meticulously researched, he explores Patrick’s childhood, his experiences at sea during World War II and the successful acting career which led to his historic casting as Doctor Who in 1966.

Patrick’s Doctor Who years are recalled in vivid detail, from his initial uncertainty about taking on the part through the legendary 'monster year', to his troubled final season and three subsequent returns to the role.

In this fascinating biography, Patrick’s extraordinary career and his multi-layered personal life are enhanced by the memories of family members, actors, friends and colleagues. Michael peppers the book with revealing extracts from Patrick’s own diaries. This audiobook is an honest, affectionate and complete account of Patrick Troughton the actor, and Patrick Troughton the man.

    "A brilliant insight into a much-loved actor"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Patrick Troughton: The Biography to be better than the print version?

    As a fan of audiobooks and of Doctor Who I was delighted to listen to this. Read by the Author it offers insight, warmth and humour without descending into sentimentality.


    Any additional comments?

    A lovely book about the life of one of Britain's most loved actors. Written by his son it is a book that offers insight and honesty, and its frankness is one of its best features.

    A lovely book.
