My scariest TV moment was when … the Cybermen were about to get the Doctor.

My favourite show as a child was … The Goodies.

I decided a television career for me was when … I missed out on a synchronised swimming medal at the Barcelona Olympics.

My favourite thing about summer TV is … avoiding the cricket.

People I admire most … do it well.

My guilty TV pleasure is … YouTube epic fails.

If you were going to tell all, which television interviewer would you go to? Tracy Grimshaw.

Bring back …Monkey.

The shire … is an area in which the marvellous TV show Puberty Blues is set.

Hair, make-up or wardrobe? Hmmm, this is a real tough one. I would have to say lipstick, low lights, lifts, extensions, a nice tight perm and bespoke suit would get one over the line come action time.

The book I'd like on TV is … Dostoyevsky's Crime and Punishment with the cast of Home and Away.

My parents warned me TV … would rot my brain (it has).

My most prized DVD is … Last Tango on Ramsay Street.

Missing from my DVD collection is … about four copies of Love My Way box sets that people have failed to return, and it would be greatly appreciated if they did.

I wish I had time to watch …The West Wing.

Ricky, Delta or Joel? Are they all Edgertons?

If I weren't on TV … I would be a parking inspector, probably.

The most significant event of 2012 was … Parko winning the world surfing title.

The show that has had the greatest influence on me is …The Goodies.

I always wondered why my parents watched … Four Corners.

I loathe but can't look away from …60 Minutes.

If I were a TV programmer, I'd … pray for the world wide web to have major technical difficulties.

Dan Wyllie plays Inspector Fred Piggott in Underbelly: Squizzy, to air soon on Channel Nine.
