Post Script Season: Of Colin Baker's two years spent playing the Doctor, only Series 22 came out looking the way Nathan-Turner and co. wanted. Series 23 was haphazardly put together after the show returned from an 18-month hiatus. (Series 22 hadn't exactly lit the world on fire, so you can imagine the results.)
Mean Character Nice Actor: Whilst the Sixth Doctor is arguably the most Jerkass incarnation of the character, Baker himself has been claimed by fans to be the nicest actor to ever take the role. He's also an avid campaigner for SIDS awareness, after the death of his son in the 1980s.
Throw It In: Baker added the finishing touch the Doctor's wardrobe himself: a cat brooch worn on the lapel.
Vindicated by History: Colin has worked hard to clean up the 6th Doctor's legacy, and succeeded to an extent. Even blogger Phil Sandifer, who came down hard on the Colin Baker era, conceded that if Six's tenure has been anything like Big Finish's Jubilee, he'd be remembered as one of the greatest of all time. And then Big Finish produced a bona-fide final story for the Sixth Doctor, The Last Adventure", which at last salvaged the infamous Fake Shemp regeneration sequence in "Time and the Rani".
