There are elements of Edge of Destruction that would fit in perfectly well with today’s darker Doctor Who. Reply Patrick T. and Davidson were an abnormality and a big change from the Doctor’s original personality. The Pertwee and Baker were much closer – irascible, grumpy, focused on the bigger picture and caring very little for how people felt about what they needed to do to get the job done. Colin and McCoy got quite a bit closer in comparison to Davidson – but they both got axed by the BBC in the end so we didn’t get to really see how they would have developed along the road. As McGann’s audio plays have gone on he’s begun to slip back into the questionable choices of the first Doctor and it’s been interesting to see how these Doctors who we barely got to see are being allowed to develop their characters. Thank GOD for Big Finish 🙂 Reply LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your comment! Please enter your name here You have entered an incorrect email address!
