Danger: Vintage TV happiness alert

Because it rather delighted me just now...


One of the Doctor's illustrative pictures of historical depictions of Robin Hood was Patrick Troughton:



I have no idea how much if any of that version survives (it was made in 1953, so probably very little), but doesn't he look splendid!

Although it amuses me that Patrick Troughton is now canon in the Whoniverse. I wonder what he was doing between 1966 and 1969? ;)

Did you read that somewhere or did you notice it yourself? Thousands of geek points ride on the reply!!

I enjoyed the episode but i miss all the hidden meaning stuff from the RTD days.

I'm faintly ashamed to admit that I recognised him instantly, even though the picture was only flashed up for a second. I have a fan nerd's brain. I only wish it was a talent with useful real world applications! :D

I spotted Patrick Troughton instantly too as I'm a sad git;p

Look upon it more as having a quick eye and a sharp brain. ;)

Yes of course you're right - I'll take that description;)

It's rather sad to see elderly (or dead) geezers when they were young and gorgeous, though. Tempus fugit man.

Yes, but he looked awesome when he was older too. He looks so cool in "The Box Of Delights", for instance. Have you seen that?

I believe I caught some of it at the time, but it's too long ago to remember clearly. To quote Eddie Izzard, 'No-one was aliiiiive then!'

Patrick Troughton was! It's worth revisiting. I must rewatch it this Christmas. I just checked my tags, and I haven't bothered the internet with incoherent BoD rambling since 2011. Not good enough, brain.
