I still think of Peter as the most tragic of the Doctors.

I tend to agree, and that makes the choice for this month's special even more appropriate, I think. I'm really looking forward to seeing this, even more than the season finale next week.

Time flies! It's now the 26th, time for another 'Doctors Revisited'. I'm still psyched, and hope that I'll actually be home tonight to watch it and commentate. Still hoping for a Sarah Sutton interview.

7:35 P.M., the Baker special is airing right now. I'm hoping that a few others show up for live commentary.

This is really great seeing all of these various Companions again, more than I thought we'd see. Not certain I'd've recognized Matthew Waterhouse, though.

There are more surviving ones by this point, to be sure.

I would've recognized his voice, I think, though not his face.

Hey Christopher!

DVRing the ep itself for viewing later on. Really, really enjoyed the interviews though. The next two should be fun as well, as I've seen very little of either Colin or Sylvester's Doctors. I suspect that we'll see Nicola on the next one, as Peri spent more time with Six than Five, I think (and she still looks damn sharp, IMO).

Well, the only Sixth Doctor serials she wasn't in were the last two of the overall "Trial of a Time Lord" arc, so I doubt they'd show them. It'll probably be something from Six's first season. I think my vote would be for "The Two Doctors." That's probably his best, even aside from the Second Doctor's appearance (it is by Robert Holmes, after all).


I'm watching "Earthshock" now, and there was a scene where the Doctor was giving a long expository monologue rather quickly and urgently, and I realized I was reminded of Jonny Lee Miller's delivery as Sherlock Holmes on Elementary.

It would be quite telling if they use the Valeyard episode of Colin Baker. I think John Hurt is going to turn out to be the Valeyard. They name dropped him right before he appeared.

Which one? He's in all four serials of the "Trial" season. And the one that reveals his true identity is only 2 episodes long, whereas all the ones they're using in these specials are 4-parters.

I believe that story has a lenght of 3X45 minutes. Probably too long.

My vote would be for Vengeance on Varos, easily his best. Two Doctors really drags.

He's a lot more animated than Adric. Nice to see everyone again. I thought Earthshock looked really solid even blown up to 16:9.

You're right. Darn.

Really? I remember it being rather weak, though it's been a long time since I saw it. Of the ones that are appropriate in length, I was going to suggest "Attack of the Cybermen" as the most decent.
