I don't care what anyone says, the Seventh Doctor was written brilliantly in this story and Sylvester McCoy played him brilliantly. The later Doctors get so much agro from fans, but when you watch a story like this it really does all seem to fall into place and you see what JNT was trying to do. I think given more stories like this, and more time to stretch his legs in the role, SM would have proved all the doubters wrong. I mean, he is the only classic Doctor who has ever knocked Tom Baker off his perch in the annual 'Best Doctor' poll. That has to stand for something.

He was poorly written in the first few stories, in my opinion, but this was where it came together, and from here on he was brilliant, even when the stories weren't so good (though I think the last two series overall were a high standard).

I'd agree with Nyki. He was always well played but the character wasn't written very well in the beginning. I think it was probably down to the fact that Six hadn't gone over too well and they were unsure where to take Seven, but once they nailed it he was excellent.

Now and then, every once in a very long while, every day in a million days, when the wind stands fair and The Doctor comes to call, everybody lives.

One of the things I like about Seven (though I am basing this off of only a few stories which I have seen) is that he has a great ability, much like Matt Smith, to mix funny in with deadly serious. It's interesting to see him switch between humourous and serious and back again. He plays it well.

I like him. I haven't seen very much of him (2 stories) but so far he has seemed decent. I don't know very much about him but I would like to see more of him, so I guess that's a good thing

I'd recommend The Curse of Fenric next (unless that's the other one you've seen).
