But they always ended up where they needed to be, even though the Doctor's TARDIS had a broken navigation system.

At the time, his Sonic Screwdriver was a tire pressure gauge. When my old man wanted to check the tire pressure in the cars, he had to ask me if I had it because I usually did.

You'd think a warrior would know how to hold a knife.

Also, I remember that outfit as being a LOT more revealing.  My childhood self must have been hornier than I remember.

ah there you go.. i had no idea

wiki: Although Jameson's eyes are naturally blue, as Leela she initially wore red contact lenses to make them brown. However, the contact lenses severely limited her vision, and producer Graham Williams promised her she could stop wearing them. To explain the change in-story, writer Terrance Dicks wrote a scene in the 1977 serial Horror of Fang Rock in which Leela's eyes suffer "pigment dispersal" and turn blue after viewing the explosion of the Rutan ship.

She wore contacts for the first part to give her brown eyes. The contacts irritated her eyes and she convinced the producers to let her act with her natural blue eyes. This change was written into the end scene in Horror of Fang Rock, where a spacey-wacey explosion temporarily blinded Leeks but resulted in the change of her eye color.

Just throwing this in. I think the latest Doctor, Jodies character was a lot like Tom's. People complain that she was too manic and never serious. So was Tom. Both their characters were like teenagers.

That episode is also well-known for another reason.

I haven't seen any of Whittaker's run so I can't judge her but with Baker there's a difference between Basline Baker, Baker at peak whirlwind Lalla Ward romance/marriage, and Asshole Baker. I watched Horns of Nimon a few years ago for the first time since I was a child and there were points where I wanted to reach through the TV and farking smack him. Poor Mrs. Ward had to carry the entire serial because just about every time he was on screen he was trying his damnedest to show just how little he gave a fark about everything

Wow. I literally had just finished watching The Brain of Moribus about 15 minutes ago.

Happy birthday Tom Baker. Definitely in my top five of favorite Doctors.

I actually got to see Tom Baker, at TARDISCon 1984, here in St. Louis.  After his nice long talk, the whole place got to line up and shake his hand on the way out.  I would have been 13 at the time.  My mother joked about not washing her hands ever again, after that handshake.

Awwww... He was my first Doctor.

I think the Glorious Cheese that was Pirate Planet (with a script by Douglas Adams) is still an all time favorite.
