The Second Doctor Patrick Troughton is funny with flute and Jamie
The second Doctor said reflectively in “the Mind Robber”. I have a different sort of appreciation for this episode than others. It isn’t that scary. It isn’t beautiful. It isn’t the best acting from anyone. It isn’t even amazing writing. Yet, it is unusual. It is interesting. I wish the Doctor now had more episodes…
Ok, so maybe it’s more if you are a classic who fans, but there is an animated video of the second doctor (with the actor who played his companion doing a darn good imitation of him). But Frazer Hines, with the Doctor’s voice, wishes you a happy birthday.
Jon Pertwee and Patrick Troughton argue…..
Frazer Hines discusses his time in the TARDIS and how production worked back then.
Frazer Hines who played the second doctor’s companion, playing Jamie McCrimmon now does impressions of the second doctor from time to time but claims he cannot do them without imitate him without also doing his beloved doctor’s hand movements. He makes other amusing remarks within a two minute period. It’s worth the view!
The second doctor is sometimes called “the cosmic hobo”. My favorite little maker of video tributes is BabelColour, and a cute tribute to another classic Doctor.
