First of all, let me thank you for continuing to bring us Doctor Who. Judging from the percentage of letters that either praise or condemn him, the local reaction to the Doctor is a lively one on both sides. More Who trivia: In his letter (January) David Love correctly named eight of the actors who have portrayed the Doctor on television and film. But the list is not complete without mentioning Trevor Martin, who starred in the stage play Doctor Who and the Daleks in Seven Keys to Doomsday in London in 1974-75. Since the stage production featured film footage of Jon Pertwee regenerating into Trevor Martin, there were actually two fourth Doctors at one time! At the same time, Tom Baker was making his television debut as the fourth Doctor. The play also starred Simon Jones, who later starred as Arthur Dent in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, where he met up briefly with Peter Davison. And speaking of regeneration, many fans no doubt recognized the future sixth Doctor, Colin Baker, menacing Davison in "Arc of Infinity," seen on KTCA January 5. Finally, would you please mention the address of the local chapter of the Doctor Who Appreciation Society? I believe it is located in Jordan, Minn. Thank you.
