My eyes!

Colin Baker's performance as the sixth incarnation of the Doctor is generally considered a low point in the character's long history.  Quite against the actor's hopes, the producers cobbled together an outrageously mismatched costume that would make one long for the days of black and white television.  Perhaps the prevailing thought was that if Doctor Who appealed to children, why not make it a children's show?  Baker wore a changing cat pin on his lapel, teddy bear buttons on his vest, and a technicolor dreamcoat that would make Joseph feel invisible.
