Issue #450 of the Doctor Who Magazine has a "Patrick Troughton" flavour to it, with a number of features on the actor and his Doctor's adventures.
To mark this, an exclusive brand new interview imagines what would happen if the current Doctor Matt Smith were to talk to him ...
MATT: Patrick has a very Doctory face. Everything about Patrick is Doctory! He is peculiar without ever asking you to find him peculiar. All the elements were right. I loved his costume.
PATRICK: Well, you go along to the costumiers and they produce various things, and you say, "Ahh, that would be good..."
