Happy Days!

Postby Doctor John Smith on June 18th, 2012, 10:32 pm

Tom and his voice - particularly as the Doctor - always transports me to a place of joy, and brings with it happy memories of childhood, as he and Jon Pertwee were my Doctors...

The Doctor: I tell you, Brigadier, there's nothing to worry about! The brontosarus is large and placid!
Harry Sullivan: (to the Brigadier) This the patient, sir?
The Doctor: (looking up at Harry) And stupid!

Tom was the first Doctor I'd ever seen on TV, on TVO (TV Ontario) channel 2. This
was back in the late 70's. First episode I recall seeing was The Deadly Assassin,
the scene where that train is going to run over Tom's leg. Some real good
cliffhangers in those days! :D

Over here they showed a good number of Tom's Doctor Who stories, but
only one Jon Pertwee story. His last, Planet of the Spiders. Collected a majority
of Jon's stories as well, later on in the late 90's. Thought he was great! Well,
maybe not as great as Tom, but still a very apt, more dramatic type doctor.

I was never a big fan of Star Trek. Doctor Who although, very much appealed to me.
Great storylines. Great acting. Some of the actors/actresses they had brought in
had done marvelous jobs! Michael Wisher as Davros and some other characters
on the show in re-occuring roles, as an example. Oh, Bruce Purchase as the
Captain in The Pirate Planet as well. Another great performance.

You could tell Tom gave his all in every performance he gave. Thought
he had a great voice, and it's no surprise he's done voice overs for
animated films as well. Another were his facial expressions. As
the Doctor he exuded such benevolence from his smile, and the
look in his eyes. You just thought "this guy can't have a mean
bone in his body".

I won't lie and say I didn't think Jon Pertwee wasn't great either. I'd also
collected most of his stories on VHS cassette. Yeah, he was my definite
#2 favourite! :D I'd also seen some of Patrick Troughton's stories,
and thought he was pretty good as well.

It / still does immerse me into it with it's fascinating stories and acting. Will
always be a Doctor Who/ Tom fan. ;)
