PROFESSOR WHAT NEXT?

FANS OF DMTV's slightly successful sci-fi smash Professor What have been dismayed by the announcement that current Professor Roger the Lodger is to leave the show at the end of the next series.

Lodger, who used to be in that fondly remembered eighties sitcom No Place Like Home, has been widely regarded as the most popular actor to play the part of The Professor since the last one.

The previous actors to play the role were:
Wilfrid Hardman (1964-67)
Patricia Troughtface (1967-70), the first ever woman to play the role of The Professor
Bert Woodworm (1971-76)
Timothy Candlestick-Maker (1976-82)
Jimmy Krankie (1982-85)
Coco the Clown (1985-87), the first ever clown to play the role of The Professor
Freddie the Ferret (1988-90), the first ever ferret to play the role of The Professor
Renault Megane (1997), the first ever car to play the role of The Professor
Keith Ecclescakes (2006)
Roger the Lodger (2006-date)
