->''"[[Creator/PatrickTroughton Troughton's]] Doctor was in some ways [[AudienceSurrogate the audience's agent]] inside the narrative, but Baker's is nobody's agent -- a force that stalks the liminal space between audience and narrative, commenting freely on both."''

->''"He takes the role of ''[[VideoGame/SpecOpsTheLine SpecOps]]''[='=] Colonel Konrad here: he uses a lot of double entendres to speak both to the player and the main character. And instead of hamming it up with some guilt-trppy drama, that self-awareness is more played for laughs this time--which is awesome. There are some genuinely funny jabs during the intro and the outro where he actually uses the entire rest of the plot of the game as ''[[WhoWouldWantToWatchUs the butt of his jokes]]''. It's actually really weird, it's like he was written by an entirely different person from the the other characters; like he's an outsider of this story, existing somewhere outside of the fourth wall...it will literally [[ThisIsThePartWhere spoil everything that happens within the next 20 hours]]. And that's kinda hilarious; I kinda love that."''

->''"And then on top of that we get a Doctor who is even more mercurial and anarchic than [[Creator/PatrickTroughton Troughton]]...The most obvious instance of this, of course, is [[Creator/TomBaker Baker's]] hilarious fondling of the [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar rather suggestive-looking]] Zygon controls. But Baker also, in this story and others, displays an amazing talent for pulling a somewhat inscrutable and puzzled expression when he's doing a reaction shot to a dodgy effect, as if he's [[WhoWritesThisCrap vaguely appalled by it]] as well. Which is helpful given that the Skarasen is a disaster. But it's also an interesting updating of Troughton's old tendency to look out of television screens. Baker has a similar power to defy and control he medium. Not only does he make frequent eye contact with the camera that emulates Troughton's peering, but he also reverses it, seeming to look at things within the narrative with the perspective of someone outside the narrative. Troughton's Doctor was in some ways [[AudienceSurrogate the audience's agent]] inside the narrative, but Baker's is nobody's agent - a force that stalks the liminal space between audience and narrative, commenting freely on both."''
