11 Doctors. 50 years. 23rd November 2013.
  Colin Baker
The Sixth Doctor (1984-1986)

Colin Baker took over the TARDIS in 1984 and his unpredictable and often volatile incarnation took the iconic Time Lord to new territories as fans were introduced to a darker and more manic Doctor. Never one to suffer fools gladly, the Sixth Doctor is well known for his fondness of cats and his portentous personality was somewhat contrasted by his brightly coloured clothes. We're sure that patchwork coat is considered fashionable in some areas of deep space. Very deep space!
