The Sixth Doctor was the sixth incarnation of the Time Lord known as the Doctor. Arrogant, dramatic, self-absorbed, driven and stubborn, the sixth incarnation instantly believed himself superior to almost anyone he encountered. Nevertheless, he did possess great reserves of compassion, which occasionally shone through.

Tell us what you thought of him in this story, here :)

I like CB a lot as the Doctor, and this story I think shows him in a very good way. He plays off well against Troughton which is good though I think he gets lost in a couple of scenes and is outshone by others at times.

I liked Six a lot in this. He grows on me with every story. The line about how he used to be fond of Jamie was such a nice touch. It's just a shame he didn't get much screen time with PT. Not enough for my liking, anyway.

As I was saying elsewhere I am not a big fan of Colin Baker and I am sometimes (perhaps overly) harsh on the guy, but he was brilliant in this. Perhaps my favourite performance of his in the show.

I'm not a huge fan of the character, but I can't fault CB on performance.  I felt he worked better here than in most of his stories.

The Two Doctors is one of his best stories and best performances by far. Colin Baker had a rough ride but when it all came together for him with a good story and supporting cast then he could really shine, and that's what he did here.

Baker put in a great performance in this but I think by this point his character was already doomed. They made such a mistake in the way they wrote him and his stories. I don't think this was one of his best stories but I do think it was one of his best performances.

I agree with about 90% of this. I do think it's one of his best stories, too.
