Re: Picardo: I Think I?ve Got The Worst Part
I am so surprised that Picardo felt (initially) that he got the short end.
When he read the Caretaker script, the Doctor was a small part with few lines, so he didn't see much growth potential. Fortunately, his adlibbing a line during the audition ("I'm a doctor, not a nightlight") may have won him the role.
