angelfromthegreyforest asked: I'm sad Matt is leaving but then again everyone is sad when the Doctor regenerates. I cried my eyes out when Tom Baker regenerated and when David Tennant left. I think Peter will do great.

Daleks infiltrate Buckingham Palace as Doctor Who celebrates 50th anniversary - Telegraph

Buckingham Palace has had its share of intruder alerts over the years, but never has royal security been threatened by anything as formidable as a Dalek – until today.
Thankfully, no fewer than four Doctor Whos materialised to prevent the Queen being exterminated as they attended a reception to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the BBC series.
Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Matt Smith and John Hurt – who plays a previously unknown “dark” incarnation of the Time Lord in this weekend’s anniversary edition – were among the guests invited to the Palace by the Countess of Wessex.
The Countess told the four Doctors that she was a fan of the series as a child, watching it with her brother, David, though she insisted she was “braver than him”.
Tom Baker, 79, who played the Doctor from 1974 to 1981, said: “She told me I was her favourite Doctor, which is very thrilling and very flattering and I will probably never recover.”

Being Doctor Who, I used to look at the clock and know at half past four we were going to stop rehearsing - and that was a sad moment for me because I wanted to stay in this beautiful, unreal world.

A Companion To The Doctors: The Fourth Doctor

One of the most appealing aspects of Doctor Who is that the reality created within the show is conceptually strong enough to handle the replacement of every single actor in it. This means that fandom and appreciation can be comfortably spread over the entire 50-year run. Second Doctor fans can debate their preferences with Sixth Doctor fans, and no one can be definitively wrong or right.
That said, there are a few good reasons why Tom Baker, the Fourth Doctor, often comes out as the most popular of all of the incarnations in the classic series, an affection that sometimes rivals the more recent Doctors too.
