  1. Always loved Matthew Corbett. He took what his father did and expanded on it in a way that didn't lose sight of the original act, but updated it for a more modern audience. That's in hindsight obviously, at the time I just liked it when he went mental or got squirted in the face.

    1. Matthew was a true master of children's TV and The Sooty Show still feels modern - haircuts aside...

  2. I genuinely want Matthew Corbett to play the Thirteenth Doctor in Doctor Who now that Peter Capaldi is leaving.
