The fourth incarnation of The Doctor was portrayed by Tom Baker. Adorned in baggy clothes, a manic grin, and an enormous scarf, the influence of Baker’s Doctor cannot be overestimated. Disconcertingly whimsical or deadly serious by turns, the fourth incarnation of The Doctor was an unpredictable man of misdirection and great emotional depth. He would use a silly and non sequitur manner to throw enemies offguard, but could express great disdain and anger when rubbed the wrong way. He would carry an array of props in his pockets for various purposes, most famously munching on or offering Jelly Babies to his companions or even his enemies. For many, especially in the US, the fourth incarnation of The Doctor was the Doctor that introduced them to the show, and Baker remained the most popular incarnation until David Tennant showed up over 30 years later. His travels with companion Sarah Jane Smith were considered the Golden Age of the classic series. His iconic scarves continue to enthrall knitters of all ages and his bohemian outfits became, for many people, the quintessential look of The Doctor. The fourth incarnation of The Doctor still holds the record for longest time in the TARDIS, at 7 years (from 1974-1981), and his companions included Sarah Jane Smith,  Harry Sullivan, Leela, K-9, Romanadvoratrelundar (Romana for short) I, Romana II, Nyssa, Adric, and Tegan.
