He was the producers first choice for the third Doctor, but he turned it down, so they went with Pertwee.

He said that it was the biggest regret of his career. He even said that every time he heard DW's iconic music he kicked himself.

Of course I am delighted that they cast Pertwee instead as he is my favourite Doctor. Still Ron Moody was an amazing actor and would have been a fantastic Doctor too. In fact I remember when the show was off in the 90s he was always one of my top choices to play the role if it ever came back alongside Dylan Moran and Tim Curry ironically.

How do you think it would have gone if he had been cast instead of Pertwee?

Creepy theme music. CSO. Written by Bob Baker. Child actors being child actors not wisecracking. And never rebooted!
Maybe things would have been different if he took the job instead of Pertwee.
But I will always think of him in this rather than Fagin or EastEnders.

Try not to think about the decline of UK Children's drama programming. You'll never be happy again!
