Johnny Candon, The Fan Can

Johnny Candon
Fave Doctor: Changes every day. Troughton would probably be the overall favourite but I'm as fickle as a debutante.
Fave Who story: Again, depends on mood, but I do love The Seeds of Doom.
Fave companion: Sarah Jane Smith.
Most embarrassing Who confession: I used felt tip pen to draw question marks on my Dad's shirt when I was 11, and wore it out in public. It was way too big for me so I tucked the bottom into my jeans, so not only was I wearing a home made version of one of the worst Doctor Who costumes ever, but it also looked like I was wearing a nappy.

Fave companion: Sarah
Most embarrassing Who confession: At a Panopticon, when I was about 16, I had a tap on the shoulder. "Do you want my autograph?" asked the designer of the Fish People. "No." came my reply dripping with disdain. Not a moment has gone by since, when I haven't regretted that missed opportunity...
