i just really want to meet colin baker and hug him


Can we talk about how wonderful Colin Baker is? This is a man who would have had every reason to turn his back on Doctor Who after being treated so badly by the BBC and by fans (nothing I have read about Doctor Who fan behavior has come close to the awfulness of the infamous “Liverpool Incident,” where some fucksticks in a fanzine mocked the death of Colin’s son from SIDS/cot death), but instead, he did just the opposite. He’s continued to breathe life into the character he created and remain involved with the show’s fandom (he’s the president of the Doctor Who Appreciation Society, for fuck’s sake!). And according to all accounts, he’s just an utterly lovely and gracious person.

Plus, he has goats. We’re rapidly approaching “flawless human being” territory here, folks.
