Patrick Troughton in America
Broadcast: Friday 24th November 2006
7:00pm PST (03:00 GMT) < > « » Premiere < > «

During the 1980's Patrick Troughton overcame his reluctance to make personal appearances and began attending conventions both in Britain and America.

Between 1983 and 1987 Patrick crossed the Atlantic on numerous occasions to star at some of the biggest Doctor Who conventions ever held. At the same time he appeared on Public Broadcasting Services television to help promote Doctor Who to the American Public.

In this special production Reeltime has talked with American fans and professionals about their memories of Patrick and gathered together exclusive footage of his PBS appearances... including an extended interview conducted by PBS station KTEH.

Tragically, it was while appearing at an American convention that Patrick suffered a heart attack and died. This production is respectfully dedicated to him.
