Everyone forgets... by Vulch (2.00 / 0) #1 Thu Dec 29, 2011 at 12:02:56 PM EST
Cushing, P.

Wonder if Bernard Cribbens has the longest "career" between first and most recent appearances...



Is Cushing canonical though? by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #2 Thu Dec 29, 2011 at 12:16:12 PM EST
I'm not sure, but to be safe, I added him.

Probably the same sort of level... by Vulch (2.00 / 0) #3 Thu Dec 29, 2011 at 01:13:18 PM EST
As Richard Hurndall and, ummm, the other one who have also played the First Doctor...

I did complain at a recent quiz that asked for the fourth actor to play The Doctor (no "on TV" or similar qualifier) and didn't give Jon Pertwee as an option.

Never did like Tom Baker much, but this may have been shaded by working at the BBC towards the end of his tenure and deciding that it was only him being 6'3" tall saved him from being punched more often. Apparently an autobiography several years later admitted much the same...

It might be a sunken cost thing by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #5 Thu Dec 29, 2011 at 01:29:46 PM EST
having had to be lucky enough to catch Baker at odd times on PBS, sometimes on a dinky little 7 inch b&w TV, I have to consider him my favorite, or that time is wasted.

I haven't watched enough Hartnell, Troughton or Pertwee, Davison or Smith to properly rate them, and don't recall watching any Colin Baker, McGann or McCoy.

Pertwee and Davidson have always been... by atreides (2.00 / 0) #8 Thu Dec 29, 2011 at 02:29:56 PM EST
...my favorite. I've never been a big Baker fan, though my friends all love him to pieces. I see why they like him, but he just doesn't do it for me.

He sails from world to world in a flying tomb, serving gods who eat hope.

As I've never seen the show.

WIPO: by ammoniacal (4.00 / 1) #11 Thu Dec 29, 2011 at 10:04:30 PM EST
Dolittle. 1967, of course.

Is one of the great Discworld books.

Is the Halloween driving thing laziness or more of a battery-farmed kids thing?

Sometimes there were four unlit houses in a row by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #14 Sat Dec 31, 2011 at 07:16:57 PM EST
do you really expect an American parent to walk by four houses, when they can drive?

When I was in high school, I knew Dr. Who fans by lm (4.00 / 1) #13 Fri Dec 30, 2011 at 07:34:09 AM EST
I watched a few episodes but I never really saw the attraction. Mostly, I'd just fall asleep.

I did kind of like Hartnell in the Meddling Monk arc. But for the most part, I find the franchise to be 'meh.'

Doctor doctor! by Merekat (2.00 / 0) #15 Tue Jan 03, 2012 at 06:19:57 AM EST
I think I was about 6 when I saw Tom Baker transform to Davison which scared the crap out of me, so Davison would count as my first 'proper' doctor but for some reason he never really stuck for me. By the time it got to McCoy, frankly Ace was more interesting than the actual doctor. I am therefore forced to say I think I don't actually have a favourite though was most impressed with the casting of Eccleston and am warming up to the current teenager.

I do like Eccleston by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #16 Tue Jan 03, 2012 at 12:51:05 PM EST
and wish he had been the Doctor for more than one season.
