Re: High-Res First Doctor in "Day of the Doctor" Trailer: How?
Colin Baker had a far more distinguished acting career than either of those two when he got the part and while he might have been best known for off-the-wall stuff on TV McCoy was and still is a respected stage actor.
That's the thing that always gets to me about Gatiss' little wisecrack. If people like Pertwee, Tom, Troughton, etc. better than McCoy and Colin that's one thing; I can see why. But the idea that the earlier Doctors are in a whole other class as performers is ridiculous. They're all (with the possible exception of Davison) second-tier comedians or character actors.
Egg, I dreamed I was old.
