Tom Baker is tied for my favorite Doctor, and "City of Death" is probably my favorite serial next to "The Invasion." When I was young in the late 80's/ early 90's PBS no longer showed any Fourth Doctor serials, and the VHS cassettes were incredibly expensive and rarely seen for sale. When I rediscovered the show in the early 2010's, I finally saw "Pyramids of Mars," one of the most famous and popular of the Fourth Doctor's serials. It did not disappoint, and I continued on to watch all the serials I could. Baker is probably the most famous and well-known Doctor, and that is because he is simply amazing in the role.
I'm sure you will see this figure again and often on this blog, it's one of my favorites.
