Classic Doctor Who first came to America in 1972 with Jon Pertwee portraying The Doctor, but it didn’t do very well and was quickly dropped. A few years later, with Tom Baker now in the lead role, the series was sold to PBS and became a cult hit. Most fans of a certain age hold a special place in their hearts for those Tom Baker stories, including me. Sort of.

I wasn’t really a fan of the series when I was growing up. If memory serves the series came on here late on Saturday nights. I remember watching it a few times (and I have a very specific memory have the bejeezus scared out of me by the Daleks which made me ask my mother to lie down with me even though I was old enough to be embarrassed by that request). But it is Baker who fills my earliest memories of the series. It was many years later, in fact, that I even knew The Doctor was played by multiple actors.

Anyways, when I was first getting into Classic Doctor Who stories I watched and reviewed this Tom Baker story, and you can read my review here.
