Doctor Two? Patrick Matt Troughton Smith

So a few more "lost" Doctor Who segments have turned up, one from the first Doc, and one from the second. I haven't seen much of the second Doc, partially because so much of it has been lost, and partially because I just haven't hunted it down. I saw him in The Five Doctors, of course, and various random clips (and of course Patrick Troughton was a great one for appearing in oddball stuff like Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger), but my primary impression of the second Doc was always one of crankiness.

So I was intrigued by this "new" clip...

...and the whole time I watched it, I kept thinking of Doctor eleven, i.e, Matt Smith, the current incarnation. Bow tie, propensity towards hats ... all we need to do now is get Matt a clarinet and the Doc is practically reliving a previous incarnation! :)

It also occurs to me that kinda fits. The second Doc was forced to regenerate by the Time Lords, he didn't actually want to do it. So maybe he felt like he "wasn't done" with this version of himself and wanted to revisit it?
