I made it to the seventh Doctor, Sylvester McCoy. He’s the last to play the Doctor in the classic Who series that ended in 1989.
Again, it’s a lot of campy fun. I even appreciate the companion Mel, who doesn’t always get a lot of love from Who fans. To me, she was the spunkiest of the companions since Zoe way back in the day.
To be sure, this incarnation of the series has some seriously 80’s moments, some serious overacting, and cheesy monsters. But it still makes me a bit sad that it couldn’t have carried on in that form for a few more years.
I confess that I’m a fan of all the Doctors and all the companions. I suppose I probably should be more picky, but I just can’t help it. I like ’em all.
