That's what I'm hoping for, too. Let's have more of the Second Doctor's school of thought:

Matt Smith took so much of his portrayal from Troughton.

(This is a good thing, I hasten to add)

Anybody remotely interesting is mad in some way or another.

Goddamn, Troughton just ruled so loving much.

"They sleep in my mind..." is such a great line.

I genuinely like all the various portrayals of the Doctor (whether they were in stories I actually liked is a different kettle of fish), but I'd have to say the Second and Fourth Doctors are tied for my "favorite Doctor" spot.

I'm really sad that we're missing so many of Troughton's serials. I could have watched seven seasons of him, Jaime and Zoe. I love Tom's run, but I think he kind of wears out his co-stars, whereas the chemistry between Two, Jaime and Zoe could have gone on forever.

I'd agree with this; Tom Baker's Doctor was just an absolute force of nature as a personality, so whenever he was on screen he inevitably drew all the attention to himself. Whereas Troughton's Doctor was much more understated by comparison and had less of an issue sharing the limelight with other characters, so even the secondary figures in a story could get some good screen time in with him, and his companions (especially Jamie) could shine right alongside him.

Tom Baker's companions stood out just fine until his last season where he started picking up the people who were gonna travel with 5. If 2's Jamie plus Victoria/Zoe crew weren't around I would say 4 easily had the best companions.

"The entire history of this incarnation is one of temporal orbits, retcons, paradoxes, parallel time lines, reiterations, and divergences. How anyone can make head or tail of all this chaos, I don't know."


I just caught Michael Jayston on an episode of Foyle’s War, and I recognised his voice before I saw him on screen. They definitely need to get him as an imperial admiral or something for Star Wars before he stops working. He’d have made a great Krennic from Rogue One.

I was watching the BBC Docudrama "Egypt" on Netflix, and recognized Julian Wadham and Clive Merrison by their voices.

After Sladen left, Baker wanted to go without a companion, and was slightly miffed when they said no. He carried The Deadly Assassin by himself, so maybe it would have worked.

Of course, he later suggested a morbidly obese woman as a companion, so his suggestions ought to be taken with a grain of salt.

He also wanted a badger, or a talking cabbage as a companion
