Classic Who for Modern Whovians: If you like the 11th Doctor, try . . .

… the 2nd Doctor, played by Patrick Troughton.

Comparing Eleven to Two is practically a cliche at this point, but, hey, it fits. Matt Smith himself has said in interviews that Troughton inspires a great deal of his performance. (And costume - Smith suggested the bowtie as an ever-cool tribute.)

They’re certainly both silly - Smith’s is the face that spawned a thousand gifs, while Troughton’s approach to filming can be partly summarized as “improvising nonsense and getting away with it because there wasn’t enough time to do re-takes.” But they’re also incredible at serious moments. Two doesn’t come with nearly as much heartbreaking continuity, but Troughton still pulls off scary, sweet, and somber scenes that hold up after half a century.

If you’re going to start watching Two, might as well watch the story that Matt Smith did: Tomb of the Cybermen. It’s got some flaws (including a racially uncomfortable side character - thanks, 1960s!) but has a solid mix of humor and suspense, and it’s a good showcase for companions Jamie and Victoria.

What a coincidence! You can watch Tomb of the Cybermen this Sunday just after the 8/7c BBC America world premiere of The Second Doctor Revisited Doctor Who special with David Tennant, John Barrowman, Steven Moffat, and others.

Okay, so this happened earlier. It was one part “I needed proof -for myself and others- that this is truly a man of many faces (how does he change his face like that?)” and one part “Patrick Troughton, what is your face? I kind of like it.” And one part “I just do what I want and this happened.”
Now I feel like I have an ultimate Patrick Troughton face reference for the future. Which might just very well be used and used often.
But, again, how is this all the same man?
