My childhood simply does not make any sense without Dr Who. It was a key part of how I perceived myself and how I wanted the world to be. Tom Baker was MY Doctor, in the same way that my parents are my parents. I cannot change that , no matter how good some of the newer ones have been ( and they have been excellent !)
Dr Who is about a renegade alien in a broken Time/Space ship, travelling the universe , saving the innocent and helping right wrongs. His first and only weapon is his brain and no matter how much of existence he sees, no matter how much horror , venality and cruelty, he loves it and is full of wonder at the beauty of it all. I can live with that.
