Rare video interview of the First Doctor discovered

A unique, rediscovered TV interview, showing First Doctor William Hartnell shortly after leaving Doctor Who, comes to DVD this month.
Hartnell was filmed for BBC regional news programme, Points West in his dressing room, as he prepared to perform in the pantomime Puss in Boots in Taunton.
When asked about the Daleks, Hartnell claimed that “They were difficult to play to, because you’re not looking into human eyes, you’re looking at a metal object.” He goes on to say he found this “distracting”.
And when pressed about his ability to shake off the association with Doctor Who and its extraordinary public popularity, Hartnell assuredly claims that he’ll do it by “by making a success in something else” because he’s “a legitimate character actor – of the theatre and film”.

The interview appears in the DVD release of Doctor Who: The Tenth Planet. Read the rest at DoctorWho.tv
