Remembering the Doctor: The Fourth Doctor

It’s Day 4 of my grand Doctor Who recap, so today we’re waltzing off through time and space with the Fourth Doctor. Tom Baker’s portrayal of the Doctor is widely regarded as the quintessential incarnation of the Time Lord, and he held the role from 1974 to 1981, a record and so far unsurpassed seven years. Playing the Doctor for so long, he naturally starred in many brilliant stories, but the one that stands out to me the most is “City of Death”.

This episode is absolutely bonkers and absolutely brilliant thanks to the unparalleled genius of Douglas Adams, who was Doctor Who‘s script editor at the time–if I remember correctly, he actually wrote this episode under the pen name of David Agnew.  It has a little sprinkle of everything and blends it all into one madcap, memorable adventure.
