The Bed-Sitting Room – Radio 4 Comedy Drama". Comedy.co.uk. Archived from the original on 28 September 2020 . Retrieved 20 August 2020. Put simply “The End of Time” falls apart without Wilfred Mott in the companion role. It simply would not work at all. Its strongest scenes are all built on the strength of Cribbins’ performance and his control of dynamics. Wilf is emotionally honest – in all his scenes where he’s doing a bit of business and being an affable granddad, he means it in the moment – and this means when his fear comes to the surface he’s equally unabashed. There’s no sugar coating the pain in lines like “But she was better with you” and “I don’t want you to die.” If Bernard Cribbins was on screen and crying, you’d better believe the audience was weeping too.

Retrieved 30 April 2013.The film also starred a young Jenny Agutter and famously featured the tear-jerking moment at the film’s climax when Agutter’s character cries “daddy, my daddy” as they are reunited on a train platform. The pace of the programme is deliberately gentle to create an atmosphere of warmth and love. The mixture of animation, storytelling to camera and location drama is designed to create an absorbing fictional world that will inspire children’s imagination. The aim of the show is for kids to get lost in a wonderful story featuring characters that over the weeks will become familiar friends to them. a b c d e f Coveney, Michael (28 July 2022).

Consider Wilf’s role as Donna’s grandfather. Even allowing for the fact that the character replaced Donna’s father late in the day, there aren’t many predecessors in the show’s history: Jamie, Victoria, Adric, Nyssa, Tegan, Turlough, and Peri have family members appear onscreen, but they weren’t used to the same extent (mostly being seen in one story only, dying, and then providing some occasional semblance of pathos). Other companion’s relatives who appeared frequently had a more fractious relationships (Rose and Martha don’t have the same level of supportive relationship in the previous three series to Wilf and Donna). In fact the closest thing the show has come to Wilf and Donna’s relationship previously is the First Doctor and Susan, which was a mix of paternalistic, fractious, and wholesome. As with William Hartnell in the ’60s, children watching the show in the late 2000s had found another grandfather, and would approach Cribbins in the street in that spirit.

But this is the age when your imagination first starts! And when the call came from Bernard, asking me on board, I couldn't refuse - I'd do anything for that man!" [2] Reception [ edit ]
