I’m tying Patrick Troughton/Tom Baker because Two I adore for setting the foundation of the Doctor’s core personality (even more so than One) and Four because he did a wonderful job of showcasing that while the Doctor is a hero of our story and does great things he is still an alien to us and sometimes he’ll do or say things that are unfathomable to us. I love me some human-hearted Doctor (Five) but we do have to remember that the Doctor… Walks in eternity.
And that ends my “15 Days of Your Favourite Doctor”.
My heart is torn in two for the Patrick Troughton era…
After listening to a few of Colin Baker’s amazing selection of audio stories I think he was robbed at least another season. That is about as much as I can get into with a question involving ‘better episodes’ because there is not a single moment of Classic Who I would give up. Yes, there are some embarrassingly cringe-worthy moments and sometimes downright silly stories but there is always something to love in each incarnation and each story.
Sorry I seem to have something in my eye…
I’m going with ‘An Unearthly Child’ because without it we wouldn’t have what follows and it’s different in that it’s not a ‘regeneration’ story. Although I do love Three’s first story just for him rolling around like a boss in that wheelchair. Seven is probably the one I’d say ended up with the most unfortunate first story.
Probably Seven with a little One. I tend to not open my mouth much and keep things to myself and Seven and One play things closest to their chest. I’ve also been told by more than one person on more than one occasion that I’ve got a habit of prattling off on random tangents. I can be dark but I’d like to think I’m less crabby than One (in the beginning at least).
Who do you think I’m like?
I guess I need to read more porn because I’m having trouble picturing the Doctor being kinky ‘cause what does being kinky even mean? Am I suppose to picture the Doctor most likely to handcuff his partner and pour oil on them while they wear a bunny suit?
How about just in general?
I bet Four, Ten and Eleven would be fun, One doesn’t seem interested, Two and Five seem like they’d be super awkward, Six, Seven and Nine would be really intense and Eight would probably be the sweet one.
‘The Five Doctors’
The whole point of it was getting all the Doctors and as many companions as possible all together. The ultimate fanservice.

Four really seems to be coming out on top in this meme! Tom Baker definitely has the best voice: perfect timbre, perfect delivery and if his voice could be food it would be rich, creamy chocolate. There is a reason he’s narrated so many things since his time as the Doctor.
In almost every companion there is something to love so picking a favourite team is like trying to decide between chocolate fudge and chocolate mousse, they’re both perfect.
I’m going with Two/Jamie/Zoe and Five/Tegan/Turlough because whenever I can’t pick what classic Who episodes to watch I generally pick a story with one of these teams.
It’s hard though because I do love Four/Sarah and Four/Romana and Three/Jo, Seven/Ace and, augh, agony!
Special note: Four/Sarah/Harry were my first Team TARDIS.
