Sixth Doctor - character arc? An overall evaluation...

Inspired by a similar thread on the First Doctor, I thought it'd be interesting to see and note and observe how did the Sixth Doctor develop through his two seasons and, more importantly, over his Big Finish audio stories (Lost Stories included). I keep out the novels/comics, partly because I'd like the focus to be on Colin Baker's involvement on the character (even if he DID write a comic story for DWM) and his portrayal of him.

I say this after having listened to The Wrong Doctors, and that was all kinds of awesome. It was also a wonderfully written comparison piece, about how much more mellowed and, well, mellowed-out the blue-coat Doctor is in his later years as opposed to his rather energetic beggining (the show).

Anyway, what do you think of this Doctor's characterization, and overall journey?
"Spock...?" Kirk said, whispering.
"I am... most pleased to see again, Captain" Spock formally replied.
McCoy shook his head in disgust. "Oh, for crying out loud, Spock. Its been eighty years!"
"Seventy eight point four years, Doctor."
