Tennant’s Tribute to Troughton!

There are a lot of Patrick Troughton fans out there – and rightly so. To celebrate the discovery of The Enemy of the World and The Web of Fear, I watched The Krotons, an underrated story in which the whole TARDIS crew are brilliant. Patrick is particularly astonishing.

It comes as no surprise that Tenth Doctor actor, David Tennant, is a fan of the Second Doctor.

In The Doctors Revisited: The Second Doctor, shown earlier today on Watch, he said:

William Hartnell created something that was unique and brilliant, but actually the Doctor that we recognise today is much more Patrick Troughton’s Doctor. We’ve all sort of done our version – kind of – of what Patrick Troughton did.

The half-an-hour show, which premiered on BBC America, was bookended by repeats of yesterday’s specials, Doctor Who: The Companions and Doctor Who Explained, and an omnibus edition of the superb Tomb of the Cybermen (the music of which has been going around in my head since about 3pm).

Matt Smith famously watched Tomb and was influenced by the Second Doctor – just look at the bow tie!

It’s so amazing that we’re getting new old Who so long after they were wiped from the BBC Archives.

You can watch the brief ‘talking heads’ interview with David above, and don’t forget to tune into Watch every weekend to celebrate all eleven Doctors!
