It's is a great shame that so many of his episodes are lost. Patrick Troughton was such a great character actor and his Doctor was absolutely splendid. Scenes like this showed his sensitive side. Others showed his wonderful goofiness in the face of his foes who try to intimidate him. He was also very good at showing great strength and confidence in a crisis. He did it all. And did it wonderfully. It's no wonder that Matt Smith regards Pat as his favorite Doctor. His Doctor shows a few similarites from his speech patterns, bow tie, and mannerisms. If you're gonna emulate a past Doctor, you might as well pick one of the most unique and distintive ones.

Oh, and I always get a chuckle at every "Oh my giddy aunt!" or "When I say run.."

God bless dear Pat.

It is so tragic that so many episodes are lost but one good thing- at least many of the audio recordings survive...
the highlanders and the yeti episodes and power of the daleks for instance are on cd...but when you hear them you do feel the tragedy of losing the tv episodes.

Pat is great because everything he did made the character that much deeper and more complex. Such an expressive face, the goofiness as a smoke screen to hide his incredible intellect, and the sensitivity and rapport he had with his companions all would become the standard by which future Doctors would be judged.

I still get chills from that 'Some corners of the universe' speech from The Moonbase.

It's likely that they'll animate the two missing epis from Ice Warriors, but no official annoucement has been made.

I agree, Troughton was an awesome Doctor and Matt Smith has pulled a lot of the 2nd Doctor into his portrayal.



My feelings are the best years of Doctor who were from Power of the Daleks to Horror of Fang Rock.

Im not saying that before this time and after that time there were not amazing story's but I feel that were consistently great quality... in the aspect of scrip and production.

now they have the underwater menace complete- why this episode? The power of the daleks would be an epic animation task- but I'd line up to buy the dvd- I'm sure many would.

Well, if we're having threads about great Doctors, why not...

*Ahem*

...the BEST classic Doctor?
Please note I don't mean "Best" as in all the other Doctors are bad or not good, it's just I really, really liked Patrick Troughton's Doctor. Seriously.

BUMP!

The thing I've always enjoyed about Pat's Doctor is that he often comes off as absent-minded or foolish to his enemies, which allows them to underestimate him...

Don't judge a book by its cover...or the Second Doctor... Smile
