Jon Pertwee (7 July 1919 – 20 May 1996) was a guest on Countdown.

As an actor, he was most famous for playing the eponymous character in Doctor Who, a feckless naval petty officer in The Navy Lark and a scarecrow in Worzel Gummidge, and as such could never be accused of lacking "range". He also hosted the murder mystery game show, Whodunnit? and provided the voice of SuperTed's sidekick, Spotty.

On his appearance, the conundrums DALEKSNEC and THINWOUND were revealed as a homage to him.

Pertwee died of a heart attack on 20 May 1996, less than a year after his sole appearance on Countdown.
