Doctor Who - The Mind Robber [1968] [DVD]
Doctor Who - The Mind Robber [1968] [DVD]
"Patrick Troughton could make a cardboard robot look scary and added just a touch of skilful clowning.  I've never forgotten the first episode of this one:  or made any sense of the others."
Doctor Who - The Complete BBC Series 1 Box Set [2005] [DVD]

"Eccleston took it seriously and could deliver a mean one liner, Lots of planets have a North! Gimme Gimme Gimme!"
Doctor Who - The Robots Of Death [1978] [DVD] [1963]
Doctor Who - The Robots Of Death [1978] [DVD] [1963]
"Tom Baker is the popular choice, but he could go so far OTT he was in danger of entering orbit.  Here he's mercifully restrained amid memorable sets with the delicious Louis Jameson."
Doctor Who - The Caves Of Androzani [1984] [DVD] [1963]
Doctor Who - The Caves Of Androzani [1984] [DVD] [1963]
"Davison is a clever, versatile and subtle actor...  Perhaps too subtle for this part, but this episode shows him at his best.  Worth seeing just for his commentary on the magma monster."
Doctor Who: Carnival Of Monsters [DVD] [1973] [1963]

"Perwee's Doctor was all frilly shirts and sonic screwdriver if you ask me.  Wow, look at the colours!  Well, it was the 70s."
Doctor Who - The Dalek Invasion Of Earth [DVD] [1964]
Doctor Who - The Dalek Invasion Of Earth [DVD] [1964]
"Tetchy,  bossy, bit, erm, doddery?  Most of the time William Hartnell convinces that it's skillful characterisation rather than an elderly actor with a failing memory floundering for his lines. Mostly"
Doctor Who - The Movie [1996] [DVD] [1963]

"A stylish looking production and a fine actor in Paul McGann, but despite snogging his assistant the half-human Doctor had no offspring."
Doctor Who : Ghost Light [DVD] [1989]
Doctor Who : Ghost Light [DVD] [1989]
"Once he'd stopped imitating Harold Lloyd, Sylvester McCoy brought some clever and imaginative touches to his Doctor.  Shame about his costume and companions."
Doctor Who - The Two Doctors [1984-86] [DVD] [1963]
Doctor Who - The Two Doctors [1984-86] [DVD] [1963]
"Hide behind the sofa, it's Colin Baker's outfit!  At least this one has Troughton too."
Doctor Who Collector's Edition - Doctor Who And The Daleks / Daleks Invasion Earth - 2150 AD [DVD] [1965]
Doctor Who Collector's Edition - Doctor Who And The Daleks / Daleks Invasion Earth - 2150 AD [DVD] [1965]
"All those Hammer movies seemed to have turned Peter Cushing into a zombie for the cinematic remakes.  For completists only."
Doctor Who - The Three Doctors [1972] [DVD] [1963]
Doctor Who - The Three Doctors [1972] [DVD] [1963]
"2 and a bit, really.  Hartnell being sadly too ill for more than a token appearence.  Troughton and Pertwee go head to head to be the star.  My money's on the recorder."
Doctor Who: The Five Doctors (Special Edition) [DVD] [1983]
Doctor Who: The Five Doctors (Special Edition) [DVD] [1983]
"Davison looks pained, baffled and vulnerable throughout.  Very skillfully, too, as is Richard Hurndall's impersonation of Hartnell.  Troughton and Pertwee reprise their bickering double act."
