He probably has to put up with this kind of thing all the time

“We were wondering which of your characters you least want us to bring up!” I told Sir Derek, who chucked heartily.

“Probably the Master from Doctor Who!” he said.

“But…” I said, my mouth running away with me for such is the effect of cheap white wine, “we were all so disappointed when you regenerated!”

“I know,” he agreed, “I regenerated into John Simm.”

“Well, we all wish you hadn’t,” I informed him.

“Me too,” he nodded. “I’m hoping he’ll regenerate back into me.”

Heartening words indeed to a Doctor Who fan. And at at least I didn’t mention his role as a camp undertaker in Nanny McPhee.
