Jon Pertwee: The 007 of the Time Lords

post_spiders2

post_spiders1   It’s been a while since I watched some old school Doctor Who. I wanted to toss on some 4th Doctor but I had a second thought… so I started my Tom Baker era with the tale that began his run. While I am not as familiar with Jon Pertwee’s Doctor, I do have an appreciation for his portrayal. While watching “The Planet of the Spiders” it dawned on me that this Doctor was the most action oriented, and had some incredible vehicles. Jon Pertwee is the James Bond of the franchise.

   Tom was my first and favorite Doctor, so I’ll keep going with my plan of running through his run. After that is done, I may just revisit Jon’s entire run after that. It will take a while since I want to watch one episode at a time spread out over the next few months.
