Imp: “Here’s an idea; let’s change the topic. Like, say, it’s kind of nice to see you returning to form, boss.”
Weaver: Form?
Imp: “Creep factor a thousand. You’re just standing there, and you shouldn’t be upright, with the way your arm is, but you are because of that flight pack, you’re not looking at anyone you talk to, not even opening your mouth.

Supernatural, "The Man Who Would Be King"

Wow, what a transformation between "Revenge of the Cybermen" (where Tom seemed a little wobbly and unsure in the role) and this. By all accounts he received some feedback on his performance in the first season and flew off the handle at the comments (according to an interview with Nicholas Courtney). It seems to have put him in a massive grump and what materializes is the brooding, menacing fourth Doctor of seasons thirteen and fourteen. Perhaps the definitive fourth Doctor for most...he looks as terrifying and ominous as any of the villains he has ever faced.

When he hypnotises her, the Doctor is the most frighteningly alien thing in this story.
