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.

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.
