The Sixth Doctor's return in the Big Finish Productions audio plays, voiced by Baker, the series have gone some way to move the personality of the Doctor forward thus the Sixth Doctor appearing to be a somewhat calmer, wittier and altogether happier character (attributed in-story to the influence of companion Evelyn Smythe). In a 2001 poll in Doctor Who Magazine, Baker was voted the "greatest Doctor" of the audio plays. Baker has said that he was not given enough time in the 1980s to 'unpeel the layers' of his character.
I'm not sure where I read it, but I think there was a long-term plan for the Sixth Doctor to start off volatile and then have him gradually become less so.
