MORRIS BARRY INTERVIEW IS ON THE RIGHT TRACK

In a classic interview, director Morris Barry probably familiar to most Doctor Who fans as the director of "Tomb of the Cybermen" (1967) and "The Dominators" (1968) touches upon his memories of Dr. Kit Pedler.

"Kit Pedler was another delightful man and very outgoing. He was fascinating; in his garage he kept vintage racing cars which he used to do up."

Well, Waiting For a Knighthood (Season 3, Episode 4 (1972) written by Terence Dudley) begins with a vicar going mad, rambling and collapsing, suffering from lead poisoning.  And what was his hobby?  Vintage racing cars... Was Mr Dudley having a bit of a pop at everybody's favourite scientific preacher too?...

Thanks to Michael Seely for spotting this one!
