Having seen (or heard) all of Patrick Troughton’s Doctor Who serials, we sat down for the traditional PostDoc rankings and ramblings.
We finished yet another Doctor’s run on Who Back When a couple of weeks ago, and thus ’tis time for our traditional PostDoc ranking and rambling. The topic of the day: the Second Doctor, as portrayed by Patrick Troughton.
Quick note before going on: We will of course encounter The Second Doctor again. He’ll likely turn up in audiobooks and comics, perhaps even a fake trailer or two, but more importantly Pat Troughton would reappear as The Second Doctor in 1972-73’s The Three Doctors and in 1985’s The Two Doctors.
As far as the Troughton Era is concerned, though, this is it. It’s very sad that so much of it went missing over the years, but with newly discovered film reels and the occasional animation perhaps we’ll get to revisit a lot of it yet.
Patrick Troughton got through a bunch as The Second Doctor — some 119 episodes across 21 serials alongside 5 companions. And obviously he made an impression on us.
Listen to our Patrick Troughton retrospective now, to hear us:
We even sat down to compare his run to that of the preceding Doctor’s, as portrayed by William Hartnell! You don’t want to miss this.
