Regeneration: When the TARDIS was attacked by the Rani, the Doctor was injured and knocked unconscious in the console room.
Notable Characteristics: The Sixth Doctor was unpredictable and an egoist, whose garish attire reflected his volatile personality. He was eloquent and witty, yet displayed manic behavior and wild mood swings. He was arrogantly confident in his abilities, and often seemed to endure his companions rather than appreciate them.
Notable Episode: Vengeance on Varos was a two episode arc from Season 22. The Doctor arrives on Varos, a world where political prisoners and their guards are all subjected to sadistic tortures and executions which the colony’s inhabitants view and vote on through interactive television. Accused of being alien infiltrators helping rebel factions, the Doctor and Peri find themselves unwilling participants.
Recipe: Rainbow Pasta
1 lb. Fusilli (corkscrew pasta — any pasta works, but the corkscrews emanate Six’s blonde fro)
6 large Ziploc bags
Food coloring (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple)
1 jar Alfredo sauce
Optional: Parmesan cheese
Cook pasta al dente according to package instructions.
While pasta is cooking combine about 2 tablespoons of water and 20 drops of red food coloring in a large Ziploc bag. Repeat with all colors.
When pasta is finished cooking, transfer to a large colander to drain. Immediately rinse in cold water to halt the cooking.
Transfer the pasta in even portions to the prepared Ziploc bags, and seal. Use your hands to carefully combine the pasta and food coloring, and then let each bag sit for at least 1 minute to soak up the color.
One color at a time, transfer a bag of pasta to the colander and rinse with cold water to remove any extra food coloring, then transfer the pasta back to the original pot. Repeat with the remaining colors.
Toss all the colors of pasta together to combine the colors.
Serve with sauce and cheese and enjoy.
