Colin Baker was brilliant and it's a shame more people can't see that. He was stuck in an era where the writing was poor, the scripts lacked excitement, stuff was going on behind the scenes out of his control, but he still gave it a good whack and you know, his seasons may not rank among the best but that doesn't make him a bad Doctor.

Well put.  I think that's the predominate view on this forum, so maybe we can gradually change the mind of the rest of fandom.  I wouldn't list CB as among my favourite Doctors, but then again there hasn't been one I don't love in his own way.

He is also vain, ego-centric and quite mad

I have been listening to a lot of Big Finish Audios lately and the latest Colin Baker series (starting with Spaceport Fear) with Bonnie Langford are an absolute treat. Old SawbonesHex is continuing to do a masterful job as the Doctor and if you manage to catch 'Seeds of War' then you are in for a real treat Smiley
