    WOR - 9

    I remember watching the early Tom Baker episodes on WOR channel 9 on Saturday mornings in New York City in the late seventies.


    Do try the chips...

    Probably Pertwee

    I'm pretty sure that I at least glimpsed Jon Pertwee on TV Ontario sometime between 1976 and 1979, possibly seeing some of "The Three Doctors". Solid memories start with Tom Baker around 1980, also on TV Ontario.

    Tom Baker late night
    Authored by: mad4plaid on Tuesday, September 12 2006 @ 08:47 AM MDT
    It was Tom Baker starting at 10:30pm Friday night in Minneapolis. I think my first exposure was in 1983- when I was 12. What made it difficult was that they never showed the same number of episodes each week. Some weeks we only got the first in the arc, others they gave us the entire story arc. TCTP never made up its mind.... We never did get Sylvester McCoy....
    WGBH Boston

    I watched WGBH, channel 2, in Boston in the late 1970's at 7pm every night (maybe once per week? I can't recall).

    Since the only televised Paul Mcgann adventure starts off with Sylvester Mccoy, wouldn't it be difficult for him to be anyone's first Doctor?
