The only TV multi-Doctor tale that isn’t also a massive anniversary universal crossover madness threat, The Two Doctors is also a pointed screed against eating meat by author Robert Holmes.  Indeed, the Sixth Doctor chose to stop eating meat  after this episode, and it isn’t until the era of the Ninth Doctor more than 20 years later that we see The Doctor eat animal flesh again.  (This is also the story that helped to codify the ‘Season 6B’ theory that posited the Second Doctor had many unrecorded adventures in the employ of The Time Lords between his last appearance and the debut of The Third Doctor, which makes for a weirder and more awesome Doctor Who history, and thus I am 100% in favor of.)

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.
