ACTUAL. BRITISH. SPY.

That’s right, mofos, Jon Pertwee was an actual British spy.
That worked with gadgets, mostly.
He was literally James Bond.

Absolutely correct. Jon Pertwee actually worked with Ian Fleming during WWII; recently it came to light that his love of gadgets during missions was the inspiration for Q.

“I did all sorts. Teaching commandos how to use escapology equipment, compasses in brass buttons, secret maps in white cotton handkerchiefs, pipes you could smoke that also fired a .22 bullet. All sorts of incredible things. It suited me.”

Pertwee also reported directly to Winston Churchill…so it’s an amusing case of fiction imitating real-life with The Doctor being close friends with Churchill in Modern Who…and this was even before this information about Pertwee’s role during WWII was revealed. (Pertwee never spoke publicly of his activities for fear of breaching the Official Secrets Act.)

Doctor Who: 7B

Manihiki naval officers lounged in uniform, half on duty, half on display, half flirting with passerby. Yes, the maths was correct: such swagger could only be made up of three halves.
