The Second Doctor

I’m still in the midst of my nerdy quest to rewatch all the classic episodes of Doctor. And by nerdy, I mean cool, because nerdy = cool, right?

I finally made it to Patrick Troughton’s Doctor, who gamely took over when the first Doctor, William Hartnell, became too ill to continue in the role.

Thus, the idea of regeneration was born out of necessity to keep the show going in the face of the original actor’s failing health.

I love all the old, black and white episodes with all their cheesy special effects and (sometimes) overacting. There’s a magical quality to those old shows, I think.

Currently, the two companions are Michael Cruze as Ben and the lovely Anneke Wills as Polly, trying to keep that old doctor in line and sometimes just trying to keep up.

I’m thankful to Amazon Prime and Britbox for making these old episodes available again for nerds– I mean cool people *wink, wink*– like me.
