Utter hamminess doesn't translate so well in audio form.

Which is why Colin's by far the best audio Doctor. Big Grin

Colin Baker was an excruciating failure as DW, routinely ranked dead last in fan polls and widely considered the start of the careening path to cancellation a few years later.
The best that can be said for it is that the idea behind the Sixth Doctor's unlikeable character wasn't terrible; but the actual presentation was not just terrible, but toxic.
JNT gives us an extreme Doctor, in the way that Rob Liefeld comics, Poochie from the Simpsons, and Mountain Dew Code Red are extreme: A crude version of the good stuff that equates being louder with being more awesome.
The obnoxiousness of the Doctor's personality might have worked better if they hired someone who could actually act, but all the audience got was horrible OTT pantomiming flaring nostrils.

I saw Terror Of The Vervoids again recently, I still find it a guilty pleasure. Camp but funny one-liners and that twist in the tale at the end... whilst I do find Time And The Rani a cringe fest despite O'Mara's performance and the bubble traps - for some reason the Bakers seemed more comfortable writing for their namesake playing the Doctor. In my opinion!

I believe TATR was originally written to be Colin's regeneration story.

Works better as an introduction story. It is almost too lightweight to be a Doctor's regeneration story. As much as I love the story it would have been a disaster for the Sixth Doctor's reputation had he starred in it. His reputation isn't perfect that it would be almost basement level if he had something like that ending his era.

I've warmed to Vervoids. I actually like the Six/Mel combination better than Six/Peri. I also like the Malcolm Clarke score and some of the guest stars. The downside to the story is the Vervoids themselves.

I don't dislike Trial as much as I used to. It holds up remarkably well considering all the behind the scenes stuff that was going on at the time. I think I wanted it to be better than was realistically possible.
