The Three Doctors

Ah, you must be Jo Grant!

And the TARDIS is just sitting abandoned in the background. Poor thing...

HOLY SHIT THAT THING HAS A FACE

It ate the Whomobile...IT ATE THE WHOMOBILE...*

WAIT PLEASE TELL ME THAT'S THE SONIC SCREWDRIVER

Oh my god it's Gallifrey where did that come from I didn't know the Doctor kept in touch with the Time Lords I thought they exiled him what

TWO! YOU'RE IN COLOR!

So Two and Three are fighting, prompting the crew on Gallifrey to send in One to break them up. Guys have I mentioned that I love this show?

Oh god. I just realized. Eleven has basically the same outfit as Two, just with a different color scheme.

Suspenders, bowtie, jacket, THINK ABOUT IT.

"That's why it's being left up to me and me and me." Patrick Troughton = love.

Wait, TWO had Jelly Babies too? You learn something new every day, I guess...

Hi Omega. Would you mind taking that GIANT helmet off so we can take you some slight modicum of seriously?

"You mean we're not even in the same country?" Poor Brigadier. I don't think his mind is quite up to handling this craziness.

So you're saying that time travel is solar-powered? ......Okay, whatever you say, Doctors.

I KNEW IT IT WAS THE SONIC SCREWDRIVER

GUYS. LISTEN. SLOW-MOTION TIME-FU. THIS IS THE BEST THING.

FINALLY taking the mask off...

OH. MY. GOD. WHAT.

"You're talking about one of the most powerful blokes in the cosmos!" Only Two...

"Oh no, not my recorder!"
"I'll get you another one!"
But seriously, since when did Two have a recorder? I probably missed that one...

THREE IS FREE TO TRAVEL THE UNIVERSE AGAIN!

Also, Omega is probably one of the most wonderfully camp things to ever happen ever.




*I was not aware at the time of viewing that Bessie and the Whomobile were two difference vehicles. The car here is actually Bessie, not the Whomobile.

Two has always had a recorder - in his very first serial, he annoyed Ben out of his wits because he just. wouldn't. stop. playing. :P
And, if you pay close attention, there are some stories where the recorder doubles as a spyglass.

Yeah, I still don't understand how it never managed to come up in any of the Second Doctor serials I've watched...

I believe Matt Smith got the idea for his outfit because he loved the serial The Tomb of the Cybermen. (I don't blame him.)

This episode is just made of win. Sorry, one of my first serials. I don't care if the monsters looked like bubble wrap, I loved it. Omega was great. The Doctors were great. The Brigadier was clueless. XD

I came VERY close to actually buying the DVD today. This was one of my first serials too (my second Third Doctor serial), I loved it to bits, and Omega is hands-down one of my favorite Classic Who villains, period. He's the reason I watched Arc of Infinity so soon, and the Fifth Doctor audio drama featuring him is wonderful. Also, the Brig's cluelessness is one of my favorite things ever. And yes, Matt has said that he drew a lot from Pat's era. I actually wasn't that fond of Tomb of the Cybermen, but it was my second Classic serial ever and for technical reasons I didn't get to see the second episode. That's part of the reason it doesn't have a commentary here yet. But I'll get back to it eventually.

Yes. That was the second audio book I bought. (The first was Sirens of Time.) It was wonderful. Worth every cent.

I enjoyed Tomb of the Cybermen because made me laugh almost the entire time.

I really liked Sirens of Time, primarily for the inter-Doctor interactions (because those are ALWAYS awesome without exception.)

Yes. They are. And always will be.

I remember hearing the Sixth Doctor saying, "So that's what happens to me." And the Fifth is all me too. You can actually imagine all them looking at each other. That's how great it was.

I saw a photo of them together in the recording studio and Davison was wearing his Hard Rock Gallifrey t-shirt. You know, just for good measure...
