Short Trips Vol 1: A True Gentleman

short trips 1Writer: Jamie Hailstone

Directors: Nicholas Briggs and Ken Bentley

Producers: Nicholas Briggs and Martin Montague

Running Time: 25 minutes

Doctor: Third

Narrator: Katy Manning (note: Even though Katy narrates, Jo Grant does not make an appearance. This is the only story so far that does not feature one of the Doctor’s usual companions.)

Summary: The Third Doctor’s landlord recounts a chance encounter with the Doctor when he fixed his bicycle tire, and he met an interplanetary ambassador.

Review: This was a story made for the Third Doctor. I can actually see this happening to him. I can certainly see him as a heavy tipper. And I love it when the title is actually said during a story.

Overall Review: 8/10
