 I’m Too Sexy: How Patrick Troughton Has Struggled to Overcome the Burden of Excessive Hotness    By Barbie Walzwerks

 In an age when critiques of unattainable beauty standards regularly evolve into viral memes, Patrick Troughton has faced a unique challenge: being impossibly attractive.  For most of Troughton’s life, Troughton has been cursed with natural beauty that models only dream of attaining through digital enhancement, lighting, and extensive professional styling. Whether he just woke up out of bed, or spent hours grooming to impress, the results were always the same; Troughton found himself too sexy for the world that surrounded him. Patrick’s beauty left him feeling alienated and alone, unable to sustain deep meaningful relationships….

If you’ve never listened to the Ark in Space commentary you are missing out on something major. The first time I heard that I snorted my brains out and almost died. And Elisabeth Sladen and Philip Hinchcliffe don’t even react to Baker casually throwing this out at all. It’s great.

From time to time the Doctor liked to take Tegan out to see a game of cricket; after all, none of his other companions seemed to understand the sport. Of course, The Doctor already knew how the famous clashes would play out. He therefore had a special fondness for the local matches, and would pair this happily with a mountain of jam sandwiches and a spot of cricket tea.
Inspired by the excellent fifthx!

Every now and then you happen across something that really knocks the stuffing out of you.

Someone sent me this clip of Pat playing the recorder at a convention; which would normally have made me smile…and honestly it does, in its way, because he was such a wonderful, charming character to the very end.

But from the date on the screen I know which convention this is and I know what happened the next morning.

So I think I’m going to go to bed now and try to sleep off the sadness.
