Son of Doctor Who

Mark Troughton describes what it was like growing up with one of the best-known actors on 1960s television…

Patrick Troughton took over the lead role in Doctor Who from 1966’s The Power of the Daleks.

Mark Troughton chose a very different career from his famous father, Patrick. Mark is a pastor at York Evangelical Church, but is well aware of the enduring affection for his dad’s portrayal of the Second Doctor. In fact Mark’s connection to the series is the ostensible subject of ‘Son of Doctor Who’, a talk he’s given at numerous churches and evangelical events. Mark was born in 1959, so by the time Patrick began playing the Doctor in 1966 he was old enough to realise that his father did something rather unusual for a living. “I was just starting at Latymer School in west] London,” he recalls. “There’s a prep department at Latymer, so it’s like pre-school – nine to 11 – and then you go into the secondary school, the upper school as it’s called. So, when I was in the prep school, that was when things were really beginning to take off. I was arriving at the height of Dad’s fame.”
