But defying all the odds, Timothy fought against terminal cancer, undergoing chemotherapy in the hospital where he was kept in isolation. During the struggle with life and death at the time, he often contemplated about defeating the illness and buying a Rolls Royce car when he succeeded in doing so. He also thought about buying a boat and sailing around British waters with his wife after he got out of there.
Ultimately, the miracle happened, and Timothy recovered from the disease. He has been in remission ever since and is now healthy and fine. Timothy fulfilled his dream of buying the Rolls Royce and sailing with his wife afterward. He bought a Dutch barge, and he and his wife sailed around the British Isles. The journey was documented as 'Timothy Spall: ...at Sea' as part of a BBC Four TV series from 2010 to 2012.
