Classic Doctor Who Marathon Is Returning To Twitch


If you’ve missed the first 55 years, now is your big chance!  Twitch will be hosting another Classic Doctor Who marathon beginning January 5th.  From ‘An Unearthly Child’ to ‘Survival’ and all existing episodes in between, Doctor Who will take over my Twitch channel for the next seven weeks.  The kind folks over at DoctorWhoTv have provided a schedule so you can be sure not to miss your favorite episode from the classic era of the show (mine?  A tossup between ‘Logopolis’ and ‘The Caves of Androzani’…hmm…maybe this explains why I’m never really bothered when it comes to regeneration time).  No word just yet on if we’ll get a follow-up ‘Torchwood’ marathon).  Catch all of the episodes right on my Twitch Channel.

Heads up!

The heights of every classic Doctor and companion that I could locate (Some are missing, sorry), in Imperial measurements


1st Doctor: 5′8″

Barbara: 5′7″-5′9″

Ian: 6′0″

Susan: 5′1″

Vicki: 5′2″

Steven: 5′11″-6′1″

Sara Kingdom: 5′6″

Polly: 5′6″

2nd Doctor: 5′8″

Jamie: 5′6″-5′8″

Victoria: 4′11″

Zoe: 5′0″

3rd Doctor: 6′2″

Liz: 5′5″

The Brig: 6′1″

Yates: 6′0″

Benton: 6′2″

Jo: 5′1″

Sarah Jane: 5′4″

4th Doctor: 6′3″

Harry: 6′0″-6′2″

Leela: 5′6″

K9: 2′3″ (I’m sorry but I had to 😀 Took this measurement from a life-size cutout of K9 on Amazon!)

Romana I: 5′5″

Romana II: 5′5″

Adric: 5′5″

Tegan: 5′2″

5th Doctor: 6′1″

Nyssa: 5′0″-5′1″

Turlough: 5′9″

Peri: 5′3″

6th Doctor: 6′0″

Mel: 5′1″

7th Doctor: 5′6″

Ace: 5′3″

So what did we learn today? Apparently both Romanas are the same height (I thought Romana I would be taller by a long shot), and Ace and Peri are the same height (I somehow imagined Peri to be significantly taller…) Also, Victoria is far far far smaller than I had ever envisioned.

I kind of envisioned Peri being a bit taller too… I know you don’t have Ben but I think he was around 5′9″ or so? He appeared to be slightly taller than Jamie.

Thanks for putting this all together!
