We had the pleasure of chatting with Colin Baker this past Monday, and our discussion led to his various cat brooches seen in the his run of the Sixth Doctor on Doctor Who. He was pointing at several pictures and saying “Oh, that’s season one…. This one is from Vengeance on Varos”, etc.
He then informed us that none of the pictures laying out were from his second season. How did he know? ”Well, all of the pins from season two were chosen after the likeness of my own cats,” he said.
Colin also expressed surprise that they never were sued by Disney for having the Doctor wear an Aristocats’ ‘Marie’ pin during the run of the show. ”I didn’t realise; I’m surprised they let us get away with that.”
Thanks for taking the time to talk with us, Mr. Baker. We hope to meet you again in our travels through space and time!
