Came from a theatrical family.

Pertwee (an Anglicised version of the true family name, Perthuis de Laillevault)

His cousin was Jon (Dr Who, Worzel Gummidge etc. etc.).

Best remembered to '60s radio listeners for his Seamus Android character (a thinly disguised send-up of Eamonn Andrews) in Round The Horne.
