    I think Patrick Troughton played the Dictator in the 'Enemy of the World' - I never saw the tv show but read the book. And Jacquie Hill played Barbara and the head priestess in 'Meglos'. Gosh, when I saw Meglos the first time, I cringed. Tom looked horrible as Meglos and the pirates acted badly. And I know this sounds funny, but Kate O'Mara who played the Rani - also pretended to be Melanie in one of the Rani's stories.

    Thanks, I missed that one and have seen Carnival of Monsters 3 or 4 times. Need to rewatch.

    I know a lot of fans will disagree with this but I'm adding Richard E. Grant as the Doctor and the Great Intelligence.

    Absolutely. Having played the Doctor twice, under licence from the BBC, albeit non-canon, loved both his performances.

    In Shalka we also have a rare example of one actor having played two incarnations of the same Timelord, in that Derek Jacobi plays an Android incarnation of the Master, and then plays the Yana incarnation in Utopia.


    But not as rare as you might think as Sylvester McCoy briefly also plays the Sixth Doctor in Time and the Rani (blink and you miss it).

    I always felt Derek Jacobi would have made a great Doctor. I wish we had seen him more as the Master.
