His voice is frequently heard in a variety of television commercials, documentaries and video games, including the medieval empire building computer game Medieval: Total War and futuristic war games Killzone 2 (as Colonel Mael Radec) and Fire Warrior (as Governor Severus).

Pertwee was born in London, the son of Ingeborg and Jon Pertwee.[4] He is also the brother of British television actress Dariel Pertwee, grandson of actor/screenwriter Roland Pertwee and more distantly related to actor Bill Pertwee. When David Tennant announced that he would depart from Doctor Who in 2010, Pertwee, himself a fan of the series, was one of the many who expressed interest in becoming the new Doctor[4] (the role ultimately went to Matt Smith).

Pertwee married make-up artist Jacqui Hamilton-Smith, daughter of Anthony Hamilton-Smith, 3rd Baron Colwyn, on 12 June 1999, at the House of Lords. Jacqui gave birth to twin sons, Alfred and Gilbert, around Christmas 2001. They were born prematurely and Gilbert died in April 2002. Pertwee has said that Alfred is a fan of Doctor Who, both of Tennant's Tenth Doctor and of his father's Third Doctor.[4]
