Peter-Butterworth

“With Peter Butterworth in his most mischievous mood, Jean, Peter and I got a horrendous fit of the giggles. Each time we tried get on with the show we stared to giggle again until the producer, John Wiles, came screaming out of the control gallery and yelled at us to control ourselves. We just shrieked.  It was a full ten minutes or so before we could continue and to this day I can’t recall what was said that set us off. It must have been very funny indeed.”

- Peter Purves talking about getting the giggles during recording The Daleks’ Master Plan. (From Here’s one I Wrote Earlier)
