Jon Pertwee’s Life as a Secret Agent

He was best known for battling the Daleks as one of the best-loved Doctor Whos.

But now it has been revealed that Jon Pertwee was a real-life secret agent years before he donned the Time Lord’s cape.

The actor, who died in 1996 aged 76, was a senior intelligence agent during the Second World War and reported directly to Winston Churchill.
