Welcome back to our semi-regular meme-feature, That Time On Doctor Who by Brent Kincade!
Riffing on oddball and strangely connected moments from over 50 years of the BBC flagship series, #ThatTimeOnDrWho pokes loving fun at fond TV memories.
WHO FUN FACT: Although forever linked with Tom Baker’s portrayal of the Fourth Doctor, the Second Doctor (Patrick Troughton) was the first Doctor to be seen on television eating a Jelly Baby during “The Dominators” in 1968. After many instances of the Fourth Doctor eating and offering Jelly Babies to others, The Doctor was not seen enjoying his favorite candy snack again until Colin Baker (the Sixth Doctor) found a bag in his coat pocket in “The Mysterious Planet” (1986). Both the Seventh Doctor (Sylvester McCoy) and the Eighth Doctor (Paul McGann) were caught enjoying the baby-shaped candies in “Doctor Who: The TV Movie” in 1996. Although mentioned several more times through the years, they did not return on screen again until Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor offered some to another character in “Mummy on the Orient Express” (2014).
