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.

Watch the Fourth Doctor Revisited special tonight at 8/7c on BBC America

2013 is DOCTOR WHO’s 50th Anniversary. Each month, BBC AMERICA takes the TARDIS back in time with Brand New Specials on all eleven Doctors. This month, it’s Fourth Doctor TOM BAKER!

Don’t miss the Premiere of the fourth DOCTOR WHO: THE DOCTORS REVISITED Special, plus the classic Fourth Doctor storyline “Pyramids of Mars” Sunday April 28 at 8/7c on BBC America.

Take an in-depth look at the fourth incarnation of the truly timeless Time Lord, who quickly made the part his own, and with his eccentric style of dress and speech — particularly his trademark long scarf — immediately became a recognizable figure. Playing the role for seven consecutive seasons over a seven-year period, he’s the longest-serving actor in the part so far. With exclusive interviews with lead writer & executive producer STEVEN MOFFAT, producer MARCUS WILSON, companion LOUISE JAMESON and TOM BAKER himself!

Then, in the story “Pyramids of Mars,” the Doctor and his companion Sarah Jane Smith (ELISABETH SLADEN) attempt to free a pyramid imprisoned Egyptologist from his possession by Sutekh, the last of a powerful alien called the Osirans.

And if you missed the first three ‘Revisited’ specials, watch them on BBC America today beginning at 6:30/5:30c.

Doctor Who legends Tom Baker and Louise Jameson at the BFI
Pictured above: producer Philip Hinchcliffe with actors Louise Jameson and Tom Baker, who, of course, played companion Leela and the fourth Doctor.
Also in attendance, however, were Anneke Wills (1960s companion Polly), and Brian and Sadie Miller, husband and daughter of Elisabeth Sladen, who died almost exactly two years ago. Before her latterday success with The Sarah Jane Adventures, Sladen was a key figure in the Tom Baker period and, as a tribute, a clip was played of her in buoyant form at a BFI event from 2010.
