And in case you're wondering, my favorite doctor is Tom Baker.
The show was actually used for filler on Saturday afternoons and not part of the station's prime-time line up. Because of this, they didn't telecast individual episodes but rather the entire story-line series at a time. So every Saturday I got to watch 2 to 2 and a half hours of the Doctor. And, of course, Tom Baker was the first Doctor I saw. Over time the episodes with all of the previous Doctors were shown. Mr. Baker was the first to have fun with the role. He didn't play the part as though the weight of the universe was sitting on his shoulders.
So this evening the girls will get their Saturday night bones, and I' sit back comfortably and watch the first episode of the 14th Doctor. And I have no doubt it will be wonderful.
