->''"Tom Baker will likely always tower over the franchise, to the point where nobody can really object to the decision to elevate him to the first amongst equals by giving him the only 'classic Doctor' cameo in [[{{Recap/DoctorWho50thASTheDayOfTheDoctor}} The Day of the Doctor]]. Playing the role for seven years at the height of the classic show’s popularity, as well as airing on {{PBS}} in the United States, there is an entire generation that will always think of Baker as the Doctor."''

->''"[[Creator/DouglasAdams (Douglas) Adams]] finally got his chance to write for ''Doctor Who'' under Graham Williams and used much the same approach to it that he had on ''Hitchhiker's''. Unfortunately, given [[TroubledProduction the chaos the production team was in]], this meant Adams' vision didn't always come through as strongly as he, and we, would have liked...Baker had something of an ego and had a tendency to [[ThePrimaDonna steal scenes and walk all over his co-stars]], and by this point was firmly convinced the show revolved around him (irritatingly, [[AwesomeEgo he wasn't exactly wrong]] either). This wasn't the first time the actors and the producers were at odds (and sadly won't be the last), but it is the most explosive and several times threatened to outright destroy the show."''

->''"Maybe, just maybe Tom Baker had a point when he cited that [[ThePrimaDonna he did not need a companion]]. He works beautifully well on his own here, more confident and rebellious than ever and slightly off the rails away from Creator/ElisabethSladen's calming influenc]...His nerve knows no bounds – he infiltrates the Panopticon in Gold Usher, the highest honour and then wanders around looking resplendent in his huge orange collar. It should be a ridiculous fashion accessory but Tom Baker is at his zenith of confidence and somehow he manages to pull it off as though it is [[NarmCharm the height of contemporary gear]]... His cold, hard reaction to Goth’s death [[DracoInLeatherPants goes unnoticed by fans]] (‘No answer to a straight question, typical politician’) whereas the [[Creator/ColinBaker sixth Doctor]] is criticised regularly for that sort of [[BondOneLiner James Bond quip]]."''
