This is perfect: Sean Pertwee dressed up as his Dad for Halloween

It's not often that someone can say dressing up as their Dad was a viable costume for Halloween, but for Sean Pertwee, son of Third Doctor Jon Pertwee, it worked pretty brilliantly.

Pertwee has long held that The Doctor was his father's role, and something he could never want to emulate if asked to - but seeing him dressed up in the Third Doctor's dandy getup, it's hard not to imagine the possibilities of him ever showing up to play the character in Doctor Who today. At least we know now that he'd definitely look the part!
