The Fourth Doctor was the fourth incarnation of the Time Lord known as the Doctor. He left all ties of his former exile behind on Earth, setting off to travel the cosmos. Initially travelling with Sarah Jane and Harry, Harry chose to remain on Earth when the opportunity arose. The Doctor and Sarah continued on their adventures until the Doctor was summoned to Gallifrey, necessitating that he leave Sarah Jane behind.

After leaving Gallifrey, he met and travelled with Leela of the Sevateem. During his travels with Leela, the Doctor gained a new companion in the robot dog, K9. Returning once more to Gallifrey to stop an invasion, Leela and the original K9 she stayed behind there. On the White Guardian's orders, the Doctor began looking for the Key to Time with fellow Time Lord Romana, and K9 Mark II. Once that search was concluded, the Doctor and a newly-regenerated Romana went on the run from the Black Guardian. They accidentally passed into the smaller Universe of E-Space.

During his travels in E-Space, the Doctor gained a new companion in the young mathematical genius Adric. Romana and K9 stayed behind in E-Space as the Doctor and Adric departed for N-Space.

Once again encountering his old enemy the Master, the Doctor and Adric met a Traken girl named Nyssa. She would later join them, along with the human Tegan, to help him prevent the destruction of the Universe by Entropy. While stopping the Master from using this threat to blackmail the Universe into servitude, the Doctor fell from the Pharos Project telescope and regenerated for the fourth time.

Absolutely brilliant. I find Tom Baker very up and down in his performances. Sometimes he acts like his life depends on it and sometimes he seems like he can barely be bothered to say the words. This was one of the occassions when he was on top form and put in a fantastic performance.

I'd say he was generally enthusiastic during this period - it tended to be later that he sometimes went through the motions.

What I love about the Doctor in this (both script and performance) was how you got such a clear picture of how alien and unhuman he is.

Tom Baker totally rocked it in this story and it's performances like this which see him consistently voted the best. He was brilliant.

Great performance from TB in this. The way he interacted with everyone was brilliant and he managed to make even the darker and more boring bits seem more fun and enjoyable.

What a brilliant performance Tom Baker gives in this. One of his very best, I think. The script and the acting come together brilliantly and we get a stellar performance.
