Catweazel star Geoffrey Bayldon dies aged 93

The actor famously said no to the role of Dr Who twice. He was approached by the BBC to 06045338play the first doctor, but turned it down because he thought the character was too old for him to play and that the series went on for too long.

He turned them down again when they asked a second time because he wanted to play the part of Catweazle, which ran for two years from 1970.

After studying at the Hull College of Architecture, he began acting and trained at the renowned Old Vic Theatre School.

He had roles in several smash hit shows, including Z-Cars, The Avengers and The Tomorrow People.
