    Tom Baker was actually quite fit back in his earlier Doctor Who days, plus he had the deep voice. It's a bit hard to tell sometimes with the coat and scarf.

    He did lose a lot of weight and tone during his last few seasons, I think due to either exhaustion or other reasons like age. This is very noticeable in season 18.

I guess you can toss that one in there.

    When you look at the 80s as a whole, I think Who was just following the trend of the time. Plus people often forget Who was never a kids show. It was made by the serials department which was separate from it. I think Phillip Hinchliffe had the best approach to it in that he believed the main audience was early to mid teens. But that different age groups found something in the show that appealed to them - kids liked the monsters, dad's loved the assistants (Leela was a particular hit with them apparently lol), even Tom became a bit of a sex symbol to mum's at the time.
    Yep (The current series of course uses a mix of the "negative" effect with the skeleton one)It also described exactly what the Dalek beam does to the body- basically scrambles the organs while leaving the outside intact.

    I learn something new every day! This just proves my point about "sexy" not really existing

    Not to say I don't like his performance, because I do

    I rarely pre-order from Big Finish directly (often wait for stuff to become available locally here in Australia). But this was one instance where, as soon as they made it available, I pre-ordered. No question. Didn't even care how much either.

    He was sick during the production of State Of Decay (they had to perm his curls because they lost their bounce). I just think he was exhausted and I think he was melancholic over the fact he was leaving. His marriage to Lalla had broken down as well. So his mind was preoccupied, too say the least.

    Even Pertwee lost his zest in his last year (not surprising since Katy left and Delgado passed away).

    ^Also the show's format starting to get away from the UNIT formula may've had an effect, possibly. Although they showed up throughout the season in a few forms, I think INVASION OF THE DINOSAURS was really the only majorly focused UNIT story of his final season, and even in the previous season outside of THE THREE DOCTORS and GREEN DEATH they were largely absent.

    Hey everyone, haven't been around for a while, life and such. Anyhow, I was wondering if anyone has any links to a website or just knows in general what issues the Mondasian Cybermen appear in comics or the strip? Thanks

    https://tardis.fandom.com/wiki/Junk-..._(comic_story) sort of has a mondasian cyberman, although one with a chest unit similar to the Moonbase/Tomb ones.

    It was a culmination of all of those reasons. Something Jon himself admitted. However, he was prepared to do a sixth year. The problem arose when he went to the BBC higher ups and basically said that, since Who was doing well in the ratings, he would like a slight increase in salary to stay on. They refused. So he left.

    They are going to show up in a story with the 9th Doctor set during the filming of Fritz Lang's Metropolis later this year.

    I'm looking for appearances outside of tv. Like in comics, magazines, etc.

    Thanks. I knew about that one, but always wanting to find more.
