It was hard not to visualise Nimoy simply as Spock dressed up as a doctor.

      A few years later in the 1980’s, ATV’s satirical caricature puppet show Spitting Image did a skit of Nimoy, complete with twitching pointy ears, trying to become a Shakespearian actor. The script ran: “To be or not to be. That is illogical Captain.
