Washington, December 8: Tom Hanks has revealed that he was a fan of 'Doctor Who' when he was kid and first watched it in the 60s.
The 'Forrest Gump' actor said that his family had got their first colour TV in 1968 and they always watched because the English video just looked so weird, Contactmusic reported.
Hanks said that the show also had the guy with the big red hair and the bow tie Jon Pertwee.
The 57-year-old actor stated that everyone talked in English accents and there were these big salt and pepper shaker robots and they wouldn't be able to make sense of anything.
Hanks added that it was intriguing and was the root of his affection. (ANI)
