When he was 14 and the German army invaded Guernsey Island, Dotrice escaped in a motor boat.

Dotrice's stage and screen credits have earned him many fans--thousands of whom belong to the official Roy Dotrice Fan Association or one of the many "Beauty and the Beast" fan clubs that organize conventions where fans can meet Dotrice in person and discuss his work. Despite his adoring fans, happy family life and successes on both stage and screen, Dotrice insists his greatest accomplishment was actually introducing baseball into what had been a cricket stronghold. He fondly recalls how in 1959 he pitched for his team, which included at first base, Paul Robeson (Othello); second base, Sam Wanamaker (Iago); third base, Laurence Olivier (Coriolanus); short stop, Peter O'Toole (Shylock) with Charles Laughton (King Lear) as plate umpire and Albert Finney as catcher.
