I can't think of any other Who writers offhand who've actually acted in the show as well. Except Nick Briggs, I suppose, though he has never actually written for the TV series itself.

I bet acting's easier than writing. You just have to say words that other people have written.

*waits for actors to post in vehement disagreement*

Some actors seem to find that far from easy, hmm? Now, where did I put those anti-radiation gloves...

If he'd been acting a few decades later he could've hidden an earpiece underneath the wig. Shame.

He'd probably have figured out a way to use it to tune into the racing.

To get it back on track: I actually really like The Space Museum. It's not a classic, but it's a solidly entertaining piece of TV with some really nice ideas in it.

Is that the one where Zoë says that she thinks the Dalek looks cuddly?

Zoe is very definitely not in The Space Museum. It's from April 1965; the first Doctor, Ian, Barbara and Vicki.

Then yes, Vicki does make that rather peculiar observation.
