This article needs a big cleanup.

As detailed at Thread:264489, to avoid overly long articles, highly-recurring character pages' biography should only have AT MOST 2-3 sentences per story, not whole paragraphs of plot detail. This page needs a major cleanup in that area.

These problems might be so great that the article's factual accuracy has been compromised. Talk about it here or check the revision history or Manual of Style for more information.

A mischievous anti-authoritarian at his core, the First Doctor matured from someone prone to criticising those he felt were primitive compared to his intellect to a more welcoming presence as he began to acquire an entourage of companions to accompany him throughout the wonders of the fourth dimension, learning to be a caregiver and mentor with compassion, warmth and wit that made up for his egocentric nature, as well a sense of justice in a universe afflicted by evils. He was reluctant to discuss his past and even kept his real name a secret, causing most to call him either the Doctor or Dr. Who.

Beginning after he fled his home world in a stolen TARDIS with his granddaughter Susan Foreman, the Doctor's travels through time and space were mostly random due to faulty components in a TARDIS that required six pilots and which he barely knew how to fly. After a period of hiding at 76 Totter's Lane on Earth in 1963, the Doctor was forced to abruptly depart when Susan's teachers from Coal Hill School, Ian Chesterton and Barbara Wright, followed her back to Totter's Lane to investigate their unusual pupil, kidnapping them to stop them alerting others to his presence or sharing the secrets of the TARDIS. However, despite the hostile start, he came to form a strong friendship with Ian and Barbara, teaching them about the wonders of the universe while learning how to better himself from their example. It was during one of their early adventures that the Doctor first came into conflict with the Daleks, a species that would quickly become one of his greatest enemies.

Eventually, the Doctor bade Susan farewell to allow her to live a happier life with a man with whom she had fallen in love with, and then invited an orphaned girl named Vicki to join him, Ian and Barbara in the TARDIS after they found her on the planet Dido, seeing her a surrogate to fill Susan's spot in his travels. During a confrontation with the Daleks, the Doctor used one of the Dalek time machines to return Ian and Barbara to their proper time, only to quickly find their place in the TARDIS taken by stowaway Steven Taylor, with whom the Doctor had a relatively uneasy relationship.

Vicki eventually left the Doctor's company after falling in love with a man she met in Ancient Troy, with her place in the TARDIS being occupied by handmaid Katarina, though her travels proved brief due to her being killed early in the Time Destructor Incident that saw the Doctor stopping the Daleks' master plan to use a Time Destructor to conqueror Earth's solar system, though his victory came at the cost of Sara Kingdom, another of his brief companions. Steven was bitter towards the Doctor for the deaths of Katarina and Sara, and even briefly walked out the TARDIS after another falling out, but returned when Dodo Chaplet forced her way in the TARDIS. Ultimately, Steven decided to stay to help a civilisation they had encountered, while Dodo was later injured in an adventure and decided to remain home in her own time, with the Doctor finding himself inadvertently joined by Ben Jackson and Polly Wright when the TARDIS dematerlised with them still inside.

The First Doctor met his end after his battle with the Mondasian Cybermen in 1986 Antarctica caused him to lose the strength needed to maintain his body, due to the planet Mondas draining a large portion of his life force. Initially, he refused to go through with the change until an encounter with a future incarnation also refusing to regenerate caused the Doctor to witness the type of person he would soon become. As a result, his fear of the change was turned to reassurance for his future, causing him to accept his regeneration into his next body.


Life on Gallifrey[[edit]]

Main article: The Doctor's early life

Due to the various alterations the Doctor made to their timeline while travelling through time, what really transpired to the Doctor during his time on Gallifrey was hard to decipher.

According to reports found by Maris, the Doctor was involved in a riot, and become wanted by the Celestial Intervention Agency for "interfering in non-time-travel-capable species' development". He left Gallifrey two days afterwards. Other accounts found by Maris implied this riot had not happened, however.

When visiting a planet with two suns, the Doctor cut himself with a strange plant and fell ill as a result of the infection that followed. Susan had to venture outside, in an abandoned research centre on Rua to find some cure; she managed to do so and was able to cure the Doctor. When he recovered, he noticed Susan crying over a video, and asked her what had happened; she then told him about her encounter with the terrorist known as the Butcher, about the part she played in his demise and how she then found out what his real motives were. The Doctor comforted her by saying she did her best by saving his life, and nothing else mattered, even more so because they must not interfere in other people's business. When Susan pointed out he didn't used to think this way, the Doctor replied that now they were travelling, and couldn't use their abilities to manipulate others, especially as it could not end in a good way. Susan, however, could see he wasn't really sure on the matter. (AUDIO: The Sleeping Blood [+]Loading...["The Sleeping Blood (audio story)"])

Vacationing at a bed and breakfast called "Bide-a-Wee" in the British coastal town of Keelmouth in 1933, the Doctor discovered that another guest was a time traveller, named Prentice. He had used his technology to displace Keelmouth in time; the village was in 1933, but the surrounding world was in 1999. The Doctor and Susan had to convince Prentice to reverse the effect, because his retirement fantasy wasn't fair to the people he had trapped alongside him. (PROSE: Bide-a-Wee [+]Loading...["Bide-a-Wee (short story)"])

Not long afterwards, the Doctor and Susan accidentally landed at the BBC's Paris studios in 1955, because transmissions there had disabled their dematerialisation circuit. They met a radio comedian named Max Wheeler, whose recordings were plagued by a distinctive background "hum" caused by ghostly aliens recruited into the French resistance in World War II known as the Shakers, unaware that the war had ended and unable to clearly understand who their enemies were. Though he and Susan tried to explain the current reality to them, the Shakers continued to kill indiscriminately, with the only course of action left being for the Doctor to alter the harmonics of canned laughter and kill them with it.

(PROSE: Urrozdinee [+]Loading...["Urrozdinee (short story)"]) Around this time, the Doctor realised that he and Susan had been losing their memory since they began travelling in the TARDIS due to the telepathic circuits attacking their minds.

When the TARDIS landed in Berlin in November 1932, the Doctor decided to go and visit a convention of scientists at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute, wanting especially to meet the director of the Institute, Fritz Haber. However, he made the mistake of exchanging Ancient Roman gold coins for banknotes at a local jewellery shop. This brought suspicions on him and Susan because Haber was believed to be studying a way to extract gold from seawater. As a consequence, he was apprehended for interrogation by German secret service, together with Haber, and kept in an unused lab in the Institute. He was eventually freed when Susan tricked Pollitt, a British agent, into showing him the secret of their gold. (AUDIO: The Alchemists [+]Loading...["The Alchemists (audio story)"])

Settling in Totter's Lane[[edit]]

According to one account, while the TARDIS was in flight in deep space during 1963, the Father of Time materialised inside the TARDIS control room, having resolved to test the Doctor. He forced the TARDIS to land on a radioactive planet that had begun to be torn apart from the inside, with the "Test of Time" being to escape from the apocalypse. The Doctor and Susan took refuge down a mineshaft, and "rode out the storm" safe at the very heart of the planet. Satisfied with their quick thinking, the Father of Time transported them back into the TARDIS, which he deposited at 76 Totter's Lane, London in the 1960s, foretelling that they would find "a new life" there.

According to another account, while making a short trip to the planet Tacunda, the Doctor and Susan uncovered a "Blessing Star", a crystal that altered the laws of probability around the holder, essentially making their dreams come true. The Doctor tried the device, wishing that he could pilot the TARDIS to 20th century Earth. He was successful at piloting the ship, though it completely fried the navigational system, stranding the Doctor and Susan in I.M. Foreman's junkyard in Totter's Lane, London in 1963.

Upon their arrival, Susan questioned whether her grandfather had truly intended to land there, or if the TARDIS had made another mistake. The Doctor confirmed it was no mistake, believing that it would be a "fine place to keep the TARDIS hidden from prying eyes". When Susan questioned what made Earth so special, the Doctor told her that he just had a "good feeling". (COMIC: Untitled [+]Loading...["Untitled (FCBD2022 comic story)"])

According to yet another account, the TARDIS landed on Barnes Common. (PROSE: Doctor Who in an Exciting Adventure with the Daleks [+]Loading...["Doctor Who in an Exciting Adventure with the Daleks (novelisation)"])

Hiding on Earth[[edit]]

The Doctor and Susan took up residence in a Totter's Lane junkyard in Shoreditch, London to allow Susan to complete her education, and so the Doctor could affect repairs and build missing components for the TARDIS. According to this account, Susan's admission to Coal Hill School was in late March.

On one cold evening, the Doctor and Susan watched a film at a theatre in Shoreditch. Afterwards, the Doctor and Susan got lost in the dense fog, eventually meeting a girl named Joan Calder and sheltered at her home, where they met her mother and grandfather. During the visit, the house burst into flames and, on the Doctor's instruction, Susan broke a mirror in the house. The elder Calder crumbled into ash and the fire abated. Although the Doctor never was able to adequately explain the event, it was related to the fact that the house had in fact been levelled during the London Blitz two decades earlier. The Doctor postulated that Susan's action likely freed Joan and her mother from their "nightmarish existence", but he wasn't sure. (PROSE: Ash [+]Loading...["Ash (short story)"])

On 1 and 2 April 1963 while Susan was attending Coal Hill School, London was consumed by winter weather in the middle of spring, as a result of an extra-dimensional called the Cold awakening.

The Doctor landed in London during the Great Fire of 1666, where he reluctantly rescued the Mortimer family: farmer George, his wife Helen and their children, Ida and Alan. Much to his annoyance, they believed he was a warlock and the TARDIS was powered by magic. The TARDIS arrived on a spacecraft leading an Andromedan armada, where they encountered androids called Aalas and met the One, the intelligence controlling the ship. When the Doctor refused to help the One invade the Milky Way, this disobedience caused it to malfunction, and it self-destructed when Ida threw a bowl at one of its screens. The Doctor and the Mortimers departed, leaving the armada drifting aimlessly in space. (PROSE: Doctor Who and the Invasion from Space [+]Loading...["Doctor Who and the Invasion from Space (novel)"])

He claimed to have had an eventful trip, but upon inspecting the TARDIS logs, Susan noted that he'd taken five trips to reach Pluto, and more than a dozen to get back to Foreman's Yard. On his return, the Doctor told Susan that the TARDIS had been damaged taking the Cold to Pluto, but he insisted that he'd "have it fixed in no time".

Unfortunately, his efforts relied on a lethal virus that threatened all London. After reversing the effects of the virus, the Doctor and Susan returned to the TARDIS in Totter's Lane.

In October 1963, after legally purchasing parts to repair the TARDIS from Magpie Electricals, the Doctor was threatened by a group of teenagers, before they stopped and apologised. When the Doctor arrived at a warehouse to collect the parts, Colonel Rook revealed that he had tricked the Doctor into meeting him, as Rook wanted the Doctor to fight in a war and Susan to help in Britain's ESP experiments. When Susan and Cedric Chivers arrived after being chased by gangs chanting "aliens out", the Doctor deduced they were being influenced by a hypersonic weapon transmitted over radio waves that made young people attack anyone who was "alien", or different, including the Doctor and Susan. The Doctor devised a means of using Susan's radio and other pieces in the warehouse to transmit a blocking signal that negated the effect of the weapon. After his life was saved, Rook decided against coercing the Doctor and Susan to fight in the war and told them that their "secret" would be safe.

When Susan was accompanied back to the 76 Totter's Lane by her new history teacher, Dr. River Song, the Doctor dismissed her quite brusquely, inviting her to "mind [her] own business". (AUDIO: An Unearthly Woman [+]Loading...["An Unearthly Woman (audio story)"])

When a thick fog engulfed Shoreditch, the Doctor decided to pick Susan up from Coal Hill personally, but, when he arrived, the school came under attack from humanoid figures with blood covered faces. With the aid of Shivani Bajwa, the Doctor was able to figure out that the wolf-like figures were aliens and that the fog was turning humans into Space wolves. After Shivani was transformed into a wolf, the Doctor restored her and, using his signet ring, he transmitted a message through the fog to get the wolves to retreat. However, his manipulations to the fog caused Shivani's flower garden to die out, so he promised to deliver roses to help the garden regrow.

Meeting Ian and Barbara[[edit]]

The Doctor returns to the TARDIS, and meets unexpected "guests". (TV: "An Unearthly Child" [+]Part of An Unearthly Child, Loading...{"namedep":"An Unearthly Child (1)","1":"An Unearthly Child (TV story)"})

After investigating an alien insect that he planned to return home, (PROSE: Those Left Behind [+]Loading...["Those Left Behind (short story)"]) the Doctor returned to the junkyard to find that two of Susan's teachers, Ian Chesterton and Barbara Wright, had followed her home. The Doctor tried to encourage them to leave, but they confronted him and forced themselves into the TARDIS. Against Susan's wishes, he launched the TARDIS, kidnapping them so they couldn't tell anyone about them. (TV: An Unearthly Child [+]Loading...["An Unearthly Child (TV story)"]) Most accounts agreed this was how the Doctor met his first human companions, (TV: An Unearthly Child [+]Loading...["An Unearthly Child (TV story)"], The Sensorites [+]Loading...["The Sensorites (TV story)"], et. al) with the War Doctor indeed only remembering the event this way. (AUDIO: The Horror [+]Loading...["The Horror (audio story)"])

However, according to a differing account, the Doctor first met them when they were involved with a car crash on Barnes Common in which Susan was injured. He took Susan back to the TARDIS, but had to return to the crash site to retrieve her TARDIS key. When they followed him to the TARDIS and forced themselves in, the Doctor launched the TARDIS, kidnapping them so they couldn't tell anyone about him. (PROSE: Doctor Who in an Exciting Adventure with the Daleks [+]Loading...["Doctor Who in an Exciting Adventure with the Daleks (novelisation)"]) When the War Doctor was told this account of history by the Barber-Surgeon during the Last Great Time War, he declared it was incorrect, as he remembered meeting them in Totter's Lane. However, the Barber-Surgeon explained he had met a "version" of the Doctor who had experienced the events in Barnes Common and remarked "everything's happened somewhere" as his answer to the War Doctor declaring it was untrue.

They travelled to prehistoric times, (TV: An Unearthly Child [+]Loading...["An Unearthly Child (TV story)"], AUDIO: To the Death [+]Loading...["To the Death (audio story)"]) although the alternate account claimed that they went straight to Skaro. (PROSE: Doctor Who in an Exciting Adventure with the Daleks [+]Loading...["Doctor Who in an Exciting Adventure with the Daleks (novelisation)"]) Kidnapped by a tribesman named Kal, the Doctor was brought to the Tribe of Gum. Susan, Ian and Barbara followed to save him, but Za caught them and placed them all in the Cave of Skulls.

The group was freed by Old Mother, to which the Doctor thanked her, but he grew miserable whilst trekking through the Forest of Fear. When a pursuing Za was wounded by a tiger, the Doctor initially refused to help him. He picked up a rock and was prepared to kill Za, until Ian stopped him, (TV: An Unearthly Child [+]Loading...["An Unearthly Child (TV story)"]) and a meeting with his eighth incarnation in a time bubble convinced him not to continue his murderous plan. (PROSE: The Eight Doctors [+]Loading...["The Eight Doctors (novel)"]) Recaptured and placed back in the cave, the Doctor tricked Kal into revealing he had killed the Old Mother. Ian and Susan later had the idea to set fire to skulls to distract the Tribe and allow them to escape. (TV: An Unearthly Child [+]Loading...["An Unearthly Child (TV story)"]) As preparations for this were made, Barbara told the Doctor the story of Godfather Death by the Brothers Grimm, a story that would stick with him for many incarnations. (PROSE: The Knight, The Fool and The Dead [+]Loading...["The Knight, The Fool and The Dead (novel)"]) When the Tribe was distracted, the travellers fled back to the TARDIS, with the Doctor quickly taking off.

When the TARDIS landed on Skaro (TV: An Unearthly Child [+]Loading...["An Unearthly Child (TV story)"]) in early 2064, (PROSE: Peaceful Thals Ambushed! [+]Loading...["Peaceful Thals Ambushed! (short story)"]) the Doctor claimed that the fluid link needed more mercury, despite there being nothing wrong, so that he could explore a nearby city despite his companion' concerns. In the city, the Doctor and his friends were captured by the Daleks. Having escaped, they assisted the Dalek's enemy, the Thals, in an attack on the Daleks city. The Daleks died and their plans to flood the atmosphere with radiation failed. (TV: The Daleks [+]Loading...["The Daleks (TV story)"]) However, the events of this adventure made a strong impression on the Doctor, as he was appalled and disgusted by the evil and callousness of the Daleks, and he thus made it his mission in life to combat threats similar to them. (TV: Into the Dalek [+]Loading...["Into the Dalek (TV story)"])

The Doctor left Skaro for Earth, using the fast return switch. The spring in the switch was damaged, causing it to be stuck. The TARDIS was sent to the beginning of a solar system and everyone was knocked out on the trip. The TARDIS tried warning the crew about the atoms forming around them when they came to, but the Doctor assumed that this was Ian and Barbara sabotaging the ship. Once Barbara figured out what was going on, the Doctor fixed the spring, ending the fault, and humbly apologised to his companions. (TV: The Edge of Destruction [+]Loading...["The Edge of Destruction (TV story)"]) After this incident, the Doctor's relationship with Ian and Barbara became warmer, and he began to learn about and respect their humanity.

Still heavily damaged and malfunctioning, the TARDIS found its way to Earth, but did not make it to 1963. Instead, it landed in the Plain of Pamir in 1289. There, the Doctor and his companions met Marco Polo. Polo took the TARDIS and its keys on his caravan to the breadth of Cathay to hand to Kublai Khan as part of a bargain for his return to Venice. Along the way, the Mongol warlord, Tegana, also part of Polo's caravan, tried to take the TARDIS for Nogai as part of his plan to assassinate Kublai. In the chaos of Tegana and Polo's duel in Peking, the Doctor and his companions escaped in the repaired TARDIS. (TV: Marco Polo [+]Loading...["Marco Polo (TV story)"])

Finding themselves in what appeared to be an English forest, the TARDIS crew discovered a medieval camp, a crashed spaceship, and were attacked by a dragon before being rescued by a knight. Taken to a nearby castle, they learned of a current conflict against the sorcerer Marton Dhal, who sought further power by acquiring Merlin's old artefacts. Participating in a quest to gain Merlin's Helm, the Doctor and Ian learned that the "magic" was the result of a complex nanobot network that allowed those skilled in its use to manipulate the world around them. With tutoring from the leprechaun Kilvenny Odoyle, the Doctor was able to learn how to use the world's magic himself, joining Odoyle and witch Anni Glassfeather in a final duel against Gramling, Dahl's former master, who had manipulated Dahl in the name of his own dreams of power. With Dahl defeated, the Doctor was able to arrange for the nanobot network to be disabled, leaving the people to learn how to cope without magic.

The Doctor arrived in Greenland in 1002 due to a leak in the TARDIS' plutonium battery. He enlisted the aid of Eric the Red and his Viking crew to take him and his companions to Newfoundland to get the materials he needed for his ship. They were nearly left behind in Nova Scotia, but the Doctor convinced the Vikings to take them back. (PROSE: Who Discovered America? [+]Loading...["Who Discovered America? (short story)"])

Arriving inside the tomb of Menkaure in Egypt in 26th century BC, the Doctor, Susan, Ian and Barbara were arrested and taken to the palace. Itennu planned to assassinate Pharaoh Menkaure with a poison dart and then blame the travellers. However, the Doctor inadvertently foiled the attempt with his walking stick and, when a more open attack began, the TARDIS crew fled back to the TARDIS. (COMIC: The Forgotten [+]Loading...["The Forgotten (comic story)"])

When the Fourth Doctor used his TARDIS tuner to begin a temporal meta-collision with his other incarnations, the First Doctor received the call from his TARDIS food machine. However, he was unaware to what was happening, instead thinking that the food machine was broken. Before he could try to fix it, the Sixth Doctor arrived in his TARDIS and installed a button on the console to expel a pandimensional entity from the Fourth Doctor's TARDIS. (WC: Doctors Assemble!

On a "night" in the TARDIS, the Doctor led his human friends on a tour of his ship before he went to bed. (COMIC: In-Between Times [+]Loading...["In-Between Times (comic story)"]) Landing on an unnamed planet, the Doctor, Susan, Ian and Barbara found a path of skulls laid to honour the dead. (COMIC: The Path of Skulls [+]Loading...["The Path of Skulls (comic story)"])

The TARDIS landed on an island on Marinus, where Arbitan asked the Doctor and his friends to search for the keys to the reprogrammed Conscience of Marinus to regain control over the Voord, as all of his other followers and family members failed to retrieve them. When the Doctor refused his aid, Arbitan trapped the TARDIS in a forcefield, preventing the Doctor and his companions' escape. They used Arbitan's travel dials to reach Morphoton. Barbara released Arbitan's daughter, Sabetha, and the rest of the city from the Morpho's mind control, and retrieved the first key.

The Doctor jumped ahead to Millennius, the location of the final key, to find Eprin. Once Ian had found two more keys, he was knocked out and framed for Eprin's murder. The Doctor stood as defence at Ian's trial, but Ian was sentenced to death. The Doctor learnt that one of the conspirators in the murder, the prosecutor, Eyesen, was ready to collect one of the keys and Ian was spared execution. The guards captured Eyesen and the last key was found in the mace that killed Eprin. The Doctor and his companions returned to Arbitan's island, where Arbitan had been murdered. Ian handed the Voord leader, Yartek, a fake key, which destroyed the Conscience, along with the Voord. (TV: The Keys of Marinus [+]Loading...["The Keys of Marinus (TV story)"])

The Doctor enjoys cocoa with the Aztec Cameca. (TV: "The Bride of Sacrifice" [+]Part of The Aztecs, Loading...{"namedep":"The Bride of Sacrifice (3)","1":"The Aztecs (TV story)"})

The Doctor and his companions arrived in an Aztec temple in Mexico. They went through a one-way passage that prevented access to the TARDIS. Barbara posed as the Aztec god, Yetaxa, with the others as her servants, to find a way back. Barbara tried and failed to change the Aztecs' history of human sacrifice for the better, which the Doctor strongly advised her against. Susan was to be punished for denying marriage to the Perfect Victim of the Aztecs' sacrifice and Ian to be executed when he was framed by the High Priest of Sacrifice, Tlotoxl, for attacking the High Priest of Knowledge, Autloc. Autloc's faith in Yetaxa was shattered, and he left for the wilderness. The Doctor and Ian distracted Ian and Susan's guard to escape. They worked on a pulley system to open the doorway back to the TARDIS. (TV: The Aztecs [+]Loading...["The Aztecs (TV story)"])

Arriving in Afghanistan in 1842 during the First Afghan War, the Doctor lost Ian when he was kidnapped by a brutal Gilzia chieftain called Gul Zaheer. Unable to track them down, the Doctor spent a month gathering Afghan allies to help him rescue Ian and another British prisoner, Symonds. But he was too late to stop Zaheer killing Symonds, so an enraged Ian killed Zaheer by throwing him into a pit. (PROSE: Mire and Clay [+]Loading...["Mire and Clay (short story)"])

During a visit to Chicago in 2006, the Doctor lost the TARDIS in a bet with a businessman named Buchanan, who intended to auction off the time machine. Hiring a 60s Oldsmobile 88, the Doctor and his friends travelled to Arizona, Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Missouri, and the Doctor finally won the TARDIS back in Santa Monica. (PROSE: The Mother Road [+]Loading...["The Mother Road (short story)"])

The Doctor next travelled to London during World War II and discovered the Bansharai, alien shapeshifters who survived on emotions, had been posing as dead people to make the wishes of their loved ones come true. (PROSE: Tell Me You Love Me [+]Loading...["Tell Me You Love Me (short story)"])

The Doctor and his friends next arrived inside a spaceship in the 28th century, where two crewmembers were suspended in a state resembling death and another, John, had had his mind opened and turned insane, following an attack on their minds by the Sensorites. The Sense Sphere, which the ship had been trapped around, had its aqueducts' water supply poisoned with atropine by survivors of a previous human expedition whose ship had been destroyed. The TARDIS' lock was taken by the Sensorites, leaving the Doctor and his companions trapped on the spaceship.

After the Doctor and his companions resisted the Sensorites, the Doctor, Ian and Susan agreed to go down to the Sense Sphere, where the Doctor worked out the cure for this "disease", which had also afflicted Ian, while the Sensorite scientists treated John. The Doctor and Ian, followed by Barbara, went to the aqueducts where Atropa belladonna had been growing. They found the human expedition and pretended to be a welcoming party for them and that the "war" against the Sensorites was won. The expedition was taken into custody on Maitland's ship. Maitland's ship was free to leave and the TARDIS crew regained their lock. (TV: The Sensorites [+]Loading...["The Sensorites (TV story)"])

Greatly agitated by Ian and Barbara's remarks on his piloting, the Doctor landed the TARDIS on board the Endeavour sailing ship in 1770. There, he and Ian met Captain James Cook, but, before Susan and Barbara could exit the ship, it was tossed overboard in a violent storm. Greatly saddened by the loss of the girls, the Doctor and Ian continued on the Endeavour's voyage for several months towards Australia observing the transit of Venus along the way. Their time on the Endeavour ended when they discovered Susan had managed to swim out and attach a line to the sailing ship from the TARDIS and so be pulled along behind it. The travellers' joy at being reunited was short lived when the Doctor became disgruntled again because the TARDIS floor was now covered in patches of water. (AUDIO: The Transit of Venus [+]Loading...["The Transit of Venus (audio story)"])

The TARDIS then landed in France in July 1794 in the middle of their revolution. They were immediately caught in the depth of the war, and Ian, Barbara and Susan were all sentenced to death. The Doctor helped find an English spy named James Stirling who could help them to escape. Escaping their jail cells, they made their way through the French and back to the TARDIS, where they made a narrow escape. (TV: The Reign of Terror [+]Loading...["The Reign of Terror (TV story)"])

After escaping from France, the Doctor wanted to relax, but found himself on a planet with a fast time rate, and discovered that the entire civilisation of the planet had been based around him, Ian, and the TARDIS. He and Ian then watched the rise and fall of the civilisation in a matter of minutes. (AUDIO: Rise and Fall [+]Loading...["Rise and Fall (audio story)"])

After the TARDIS sustained some damage, the crew stayed on the planet Fragrance for a while, with the particular atmosphere of the planet caused them to create a strong friendship with a family of locals, to the degree that the Doctor gave the parents of the family, Iamb and Rhyme, a guided tour of the TARDIS when it was repaired. However, when Barbara refused to requite the love of their eldest son, Rhythm, and condemned him to death in doing so according to the usages of the planet, the Doctor sided with Ian and stopped Barbara from changing her mind. He then watched with the others as the young man went across the yellow arc of the planet, walking towards his fate. (AUDIO: The Fragile Yellow Arc of Fragrance [+]Loading...["The Fragile Yellow Arc of Fragrance (audio story)"])

After leaving Fragrance, the TARDIS landed in the Hanging Gardens of Babylon in 323 BC, where the crew were welcomed by Alexander the Great to his court. They watched as the closest friends of Alexander died as victims of a plot to eventually kill Alexander himself. In the end, when Alexander was poisoned and started to grow weak, the Doctor offered to keep him alive through a rudimentary artificial lung. However, Alexander refused and accepted his fate, but not before asking the Doctor what his legacy would be. The Doctor told him that, though his empire was not to survive without him, Alexander's fame would live forever. (AUDIO: Farewell, Great Macedon [+]Loading...["Farewell, Great Macedon (audio story)"])

Shortly afterwards, the Doctor announced to Ian and Barbara that he had found a way to take them home. However, as he was about to do so, the TARDIS was drawn to a nearby dying planet, landing near a giant crystal pyramid. The crew were greeted by the robots living in the pyramid and brought to their leader, the Perfect One, a robot infused with an extraordinary similarity to human brain, to the point that he wished to actually become one. The Perfect One thought that the TARDIS crew belonged to the race of its creators, the Masters of Luxor, and required them to help him become human. When the Doctor claimed that that was impossible, the Perfect One decided to imprison them, but the Doctor and Ian managed to escape. In a nearby canyon under the ground, they found a crypt where Luxor, the creator of the robot, froze himself in a cybercoma. The Doctor and Ian woke him up and brought him back to the pyramid, with the intention of having him confront the Perfect One and prove to him he was just a machine. This resulted in the Perfect One losing control and destroying the pyramid and the other robots out of rage and despair. The TARDIS crew managed to escape in the mayhem. (AUDIO: The Masters of Luxor [+]Loading...["The Masters of Luxor (audio story)"])

The Doctor stopped a suicidal crew leader, Provost Rowd, from wiping out the last remnants of the dying Metraxis, and he later assisted a new leader, Egrabil, to find a new home for the Metraxi. (AUDIO: A Star is Born [+]Loading...["A Star is Born (audio story)"])

Arriving in 20th century Russia in pursuit of an alien artefact, the TARDIS crew met Grigori Rasputin and learnt that the artefact had driven some hunters from a nearby village mad. As they progressed to the hut where the object was kept, the influence of the artefact affected both the Doctor, who grew weaker to the point of almost dying, and Susan, who seemingly was driven mad and fled into the forest. The Doctor got better when Rasputin grabbed the object and absorbed its knowledge of the future. With Ian's help, the Doctor was able to drain almost all knowledge out of Rasputin's mind, only leaving some traces of it. (AUDIO: The Wanderer [+]Loading...["The Wanderer (audio story)"])

The TARDIS crew decided to spend some time on holiday in 5th Century Alexandria around the time where the famous Library would be destroyed. The Doctor greatly enjoyed reading the books contained in the rich collection of the place, but was greatly displeased when Ian started forming a close relationship with the philosopher Hypatia, because he feared that would lead her to discover their secret. He then decided to depart, but stopped when Ian brought him a book, which the Doctor immediately recognised as belonging to the Mims and containing a detailed plan of invasion for Earth. He wanted to take it away, but Hypatia stopped him, moments before the Mims attack the Library to retrieve the book. In the following confrontation, the book was destroyed, and the Doctor, using a rudimentary megaphone, was able to talk to the Mims and persuade them they had nothing to fear anymore. The crew then departed, but not before the Doctor managed to sneak onboard some books he saved from the destruction of the Library. (AUDIO: The Library of Alexandria [+]Loading...["The Library of Alexandria (audio story)"])

The TARDIS landed in Seville, where the Doctor asked Barbara to show him around, as she had once been there on holiday. He pretended to be a cardinal from Rome with Susan in order to try and release Ian from the Spanish Inquisition, but he was found out and sentenced to death before Susan and Barbara saved him. When he heard from Barbara that Ian went to Cadiz to help Esteban Aribi on his mission, the Doctor thought he was trying to change history, so attempted to stop him. But quickly found out that Ian was part of history and his intervention would not change anything. (AUDIO: The Flames of Cadiz [+]Loading...["The Flames of Cadiz (audio story)"])

The TARDIS landed on Destination, where the Doctor encountered the Master for the first time since leaving Gallifrey. The Doctor was at first willing to sit and watch the city people and the Dalmari resolve their war before deciding that, as a member of the Master's race, it was his responsibility to do all he could. Spending two years ruling the planet, the Doctor brought peace to Destination before Ian and Barbara, having overpowered the Master, returned with the TARDIS whereupon the Doctor locked the Master away, saying that one day he might come back. (AUDIO: The Destination Wars [+]Loading...["The Destination Wars (audio story)"])

The TARDIS then landed in New York City in the year 1888, shortly before the Great White Hurricane where they were caught in a gang scuffle. While Ian was injured and taken to hospital, Susan had been taken away by Patrick Ellis with the Doctor's outrage at the police over this resulting in him being arrested for a night. Befriending Patrick's brother, Daniel Ellis, the Doctor found himself caught in the gang war between the Alley Dogs and the Wild Boars as he tried to reunite with Susan, brokering a temporary peace between the gangs and the police to rescue her and Patrick from the ice. Upon returning to the TARDIS, the Doctor attempted to use a temporal slingshot to return Ian and Barbara to their time. (AUDIO: The Great White Hurricane [+]Loading...["The Great White Hurricane (audio story)"])

The slingshot took them to the planet Ashtallah, home of the Ashtallans, an immortal race with prodigious healing abilities. After witnessing their cells quickly healing Barbara, the Doctor discussed many scientific concepts with Brenna before a mysterious plague began killing the aliens. After the Doctor had helped Brenna create a method via which the Ashtallans could reproduce, Susan found that Sharlan had been killing their people, via a sample of Barbara's blood. Once the spread had been halted, the group left the planet, pondering the impact they'd had on the Ashtallans. (AUDIO: The Invention of Death [+]Loading...["The Invention of Death (audio story)"])

When the TARDIS landed in 19th century Japan before it was opened to Westerners, the Doctor and Barbara were taken prisoner at the orders of the daimyo Takagi Mamoru, while Ian and Susan managed to escape, as Mamoru suspected the two of being spies from England, sent to spy on his preparation for a revolt against the Emperor, who was about to open the country to strangers. The Doctor and Barbara tried to escape, but ended up being involved, together with Ian and Susan, in a battle between Mamoru's samurais and the Emperor's forces. As a defeated Mamoru sat in sadness, the Doctor comforted him, telling him that it would not be the end for Japan, and sharing in their common feeling of loneliness due to old age. The crew then departed after Susan retrieved the TARDIS from a nearby swap, where it had fallen into the water. (AUDIO: The Barbarians and the Samurai [+]Loading...["The Barbarians and the Samurai (audio story)"])

Soon afterwards, the TARDIS landed in Tyre, where they won the favour of Princess Elissa and the ire of King Pygmalion. The group attempted to flee on the king's prized ship but the Doctor failed to board in time. Left behind, the Doctor was imprisoned before he befriended Aiyaruc who freed him and brought him to the site of the future Carthage. Reunited with his friends, the Doctor helped defeat Pygmalion's invasion fleet, before using the TARDIS to paint him and his friends as emissaries of the gods, allowing them to go free. Shortly after take off however, the TARDIS wound up in a hostile region of space-time, crash landing on a temporally unstable planet. (AUDIO: The Phoenicians [+]Loading...["The Phoenicians (audio story)"])

Thrown clear of the crash, the Doctor mourned for the loss of his ship, snapping at his companions, especially when Susan claimed that the planet was inhabited by Xesto. When the group had met Horl and Katta, the Doctor theorised about the planet's unusual properties before the group was taken to see Nocta, who'd survived so long by hiding in a Zero Cabinet. When exploring the ship that held the Cabinet however, the Doctor was devoured by a Xesto. The nature of death on this world left him trapped outside of time with alternate versions of himself and a mysterious woman. Though the woman showed him how to reach out to Susan, he quickly butted heads with her over his treatment of Susan before realising that she was a future version of his granddaughter. When both Susans met, the Doctor encouraged them to touch and exploit the Blinovitch Limitation Effect. Thrown back to the moment of the crash, the elder Susan encouraged the Doctor to listen to Susan's plan to redirect power from the TARDIS force field, allowing him to avert the crash. (AUDIO: Tick-Tock World [+]Loading...["Tick-Tock World (audio story)"])

A later attempt to use the fast return switch to get Ian and Barbara home, resulted in the group's return to Skaro, fifty cycles after their last visit. Brought to the Thal City, the Doctor was introduced to Tryana before the two, along with Ian, returned to the Dalek City to find the missing Susan and Jyden. Finding that power still thrummed in the city, the Doctor grew increasingly suspicious of Tryana before they reunited with the children and Tryana revealed herself to be in league with the Dalek Supreme who claimed to want peace. Remaining to validate this claim, the Doctor found a secret tunnel leading out of the City and was quickly taken prisoner as Ian escaped and Tryana was killed. Kept alive for the secret of the TARDIS, the Doctor was marched back to the Thal City where he was rescued. Free, the Doctor reprogrammed the ionising towers to attack the Daleks, after which Ian overloaded the power to the Dalek City, before the group left Skaro again. (AUDIO: Return to Skaro [+]Loading...["Return to Skaro (audio story)"])

The TARDIS then landed in Ekaterinburg, shortly before the Russian Civil War, where Ian and the Doctor were quickly taken prisoner, befriending Makerenkov, a fellow prisoner. After the Doctor had confirmed the health of Nicholas II, Yakov Yurovsky took him to a forest where the Romanovs would be buried after their execution where the Doctor realised Makenrenkov to be part of the conspiracy. Racing back to the house, the Doctor gathered his companions only for Nicholas II to have already accepted death, urging the travellers to flee. Racing back to the TARDIS before they could be executed, the Doctor pondered the Laws of Time and whether or not he had a moral imperative to intervene, even with a fixed point in time. Before he could muse further, the TARDIS unexpectedly lost all power. (AUDIO: Last of the Romanovs [+]Loading...["Last of the Romanovs (audio story)"])

Following the TARDIS suddenly losing power, Susan helped her grandfather force a system reboot that forced the ship to land in a sewer in the human settlement of Urth. Given the humans' xenophobia, the travellers were forced to submit to a genetic scan. Having only time to program one false reading into the machine, the Doctor insisted Susan go first, intending for Ian and Barbara to look after her, only for the genetic drift of humanity making Susan the only one of the four who actually read as human. Thrown into a cell, the Doctor befriended the gestalt being Brooskin whom he engaged in a medical and scientific discussion before Susan, in the good graces of Mummy Martial managed to free him and Brooskin. Freed, the Doctor liberated the settlement from Daddy Dominus before representatives from the larger group of human colonies arrived. Convinced that the problems would sort themselves, the Doctor led his companions back to the updated TARDIS and took off again, annoyed to find that his ship was still not working properly. (AUDIO: For the Glory of Urth [+]Loading...["For the Glory of Urth (audio story)"])

When Susan pulled a Golithan Spiney Back Beetle out of the console, the Doctor was convinced that she'd reparied the TARDIS and made another attempt to return Ian and Barbara to their time only to wind up in 1601. When the four sought to see a play by William Shakespeare, they found the Globe Theatre shuttered and a volatile political climate. Rescued by Judith Shakespeare, the four were brought to Shakespeare's home. When Susan and Judith ran off, becoming involved in Lady Penelope Rich's plot to dethrone Elizabeth I, the Doctor confronted his granddaughter at the Globe but she refused to listen. After this had resulted in Shakespeare's arrest, Susan and the Doctor attempted to free him only for the Doctor to be arrested upon identifying himself. Speaking with Shakespeare again, the Doctor was soon freed by Queen Elizabeth, who had befriended Susan and brought a quick end to the conflict. When the time came to leave, Susan, Barbara and Ian expressed a desire to stay and see a play before an outside source activated the TARDIS and sent it flying away from England. (AUDIO: The Hollow Crown [+]Loading...["The Hollow Crown (audio story)"])

Soon after, the Doctor rescued Joseph Rennigan, the sole survivor of an American space mission that crashed on Mars, (PROSE: Rennigan's Record [+]Loading...["Rennigan's Record (short story)"]) and visited a dying world, where Barbara was infected by an alien parasite which distorted her memories. (PROSE: Nothing at the End of the Lane [+]Loading...["Nothing at the End of the Lane (short story)"])

When the TARDIS was drawn out of the vortex by a mysterious noise, the Doctor, Susan, Ian and Barbara landed on EBV Nevermore. Here they encountered the ship's captain, Rostrum, who was a plant. The Doctor was appalled that Earth was making holes in the universe for navigational purposes but they ended up being navigational hazards. Susan told her grandfather about the First Mate and they both worked out that this was why Rostrum's leaves were dying as he was sabotaging the ship to save his universe.

The Doctor landed the TARDIS on the planet Kembel in the hopes of finding medicine for Steven's blood poisoning, leaving Steven in the TARDIS with Katarina. There, he encountered Bret Vyon, a Space Security Agent who wanted to steal the Doctor's ship, and was knocked out and had his keys stolen. As Bret tried to get Katarina to pilot the TARDIS, Steven knocked him out and let the Doctor in. After securing Bret to a chair, the Doctor went outside again, where he heard a spaceship landing, and decided to head towards it in search of the needed medicine, only to learn that it was a Dalek saucer.

After moving away from the Daleks unseen, the Doctor discovered a magnetic tape in the jungle undergrowth. He rejoined his friends who escaped from the TARDIS with Bret's help. Bret, however, informed the Doctor that the Daleks had started to burn down the jungle. With the Doctor resolved to find out what the Daleks were doing on Kembel and stop them, he and the others discovered a large landing bay with ships from the many outer galaxies and the Spar ship Bret recognised as belonging to Mavic Chen, the Guardian of the Solar System.

After capturing one of the delegates, Zephon, the Doctor used his cloak as a disguise and infiltrated the meeting. There, Mavic Chen presented the Daleks with the Taranium Core, the power source for the Daleks' Time Destructor. However, the Doctor stole the Taranium and ran off before the meeting was concluded. Having only just managed to get aboard the Spar in time before Bret and the others blasted off, the Doctor learned of the Daleks' plans by listening to a tape he had retrieved with a message from Marc Cory, another SSS Agent and associate of Bret's.

The Doctor and Bret agreed to head back to Earth and warn the authorities of the Dalek threat. However, the Daleks seized control of the Spar and forced it to crash-land on the planet Desperus, where convicted criminals were sent. With Steven and Bret having fixed the Spar and the Doctor having used his ingenuity to prevent some prisoners getting on board, the ship took off again. However, another prisoner, Kirksen, had snuck on board and took Katarina hostage inside the airlock. Despite Steven and the Doctor's protests, Bret was forced to turn the ship back towards Kembel. However, Katarina opened the outer door of the ship, sending Kirksen and herself to their deaths in the vacuum of space. Shaken, the Doctor lamented that, while Katarina couldn't have understood what she was doing, he would always remember her as "one of the daughters of the gods".

After landing on Earth, the Doctor, Steven and Bret went to see Daxtar, a friend of Bret's who he thought would believe their story, at a nearby research complex. Daxtar proved to be untrustworthy when he let slip he knew about the Taranium. Suspecting him to be in league with Chen, Bret shot him. Believing they would be caught any moment, the Doctor and Steven escaped just as another SSS Agent, Sara Kingdom, arrived. Showing no mercy, she killed Bret before he had a chance to explain himself.

Evading capture, the Doctor and Steven were pursued by Sara into an empty chamber were they all fell victim to a molecular dissemination experiment and were transmitted to the swampy planet Mira. A small Dalek task force soon arrived on Mira to apprehend the travellers and regain the Taranium. After the Doctor found Steven and Sara, they travelled to a nearby cave for shelter and tried to persuade Sara about the Daleks' plot with Mavic Chen, with Steven also furious with Sara for killing Bret, who Sara admitted was her brother. Suddenly, the invisible inhabitants of Mira, the Visians, surrounded the cave, but a Dalek appeared and shot one of them dead, causing the other Visians to begin attacking the Daleks and, in the confusion, the travellers evaded capture, stole the Daleks' spaceship and escaped Mira. Upon their return to Kembel, the Doctor gave the Daleks a copy of the Taranium Core he had made on the way, and returned to the TARDIS.

The Doctor landed outside a police station on 25 December 1965, where he was arrested. After being rescued by Steven, they visited a Hollywood film studio in the 1920s, though they did not know where they had landed and thought they were in an insane asylum. The Doctor was mistaken for an expert on Arab customs and had an encounter with Bing Crosby. Back on board the TARDIS, the time travellers toasted a Happy Christmas to themselves and "incidentally to all of you at home". (TV: The Daleks' Master Plan [+]Loading...["The Daleks' Master Plan (TV story)"]) Iris Wildthyme, who had been with the the group since the police station, then escaped through the Fourth Wall.

Resuming their travels, the Doctor found that the TARDIS was locked onto the signal of another time machine, which was travelling to several different Christmases throughout Earth's history. Eventually, Sara realised that the other time machine belonged to Robert, who had become trapped in the machine after the death of his twin brother and unintentionally trapped it in a loop where it would perpetually visit different Christmases trying to fulfil Robert's wish to go back to before his brother died of leukaemia. When the now-adult Robert touched the Taranium Core and reverted to his original age, the Doctor used the unique circumstances of the current situation to subtly change history, using the fast return switch to take Robert back to the last Christmas so that he could take the place of his brother, the TARDIS crew then taking him to Mars so that he could see something incredible before his death.

While dreaming, the Doctor travelled to the Underworld to guide Katarina through the Afterlife. (PROSE: Katarina in the Underworld [+]Loading...["Katarina in the Underworld (short story)"])

When the TARDIS was dragged inside the Great Clock, the Doctor was intrigued by its functioning, and insisted on going to explore. He, Steven and Sara saw the old men toiling inside the Clock, but, as they were trying to figure out what they were doing, they were captured by Space Security Service agents. The agents recognised Sara as one of their own, and took her to meet a superior officer for questioning. The Doctor and Steven managed to escape from their cell, and found a deserted monitor, which they used to search for information about their whereabouts. They discovered that they had landed in 3999, one year before their meeting with Sara, that Bret Vyon was the officer Sara had been brought to, and that Mavic Chen was there too. Steven proposed to go looking for Sara, but the Doctor stopped him, as them being spotted by Chen and Bret could have disastrous consequences for the future. Instead, they went back to the Clock to sabotage it and escape in the confusion. However, they ended up being trapped inside it, since the machine fed on the hope of escape of its prisoners and their efforts to find a weak link in its construction. They were freed by Sara when she managed to destroy the Clock. (AUDIO: The Guardian of the Solar System [+]Loading...["The Guardian of the Solar System (audio story)"])

On their travels, the TARDIS landed on a planet covered in water, where they found a set of miners in a collapsed mine. They were attacked by a tentacled creature, but Sara and the Doctor were able to reason with it. (AUDIO: The Drowned World [+]Loading...["The Drowned World (audio story)"]) The Doctor, Steven and Sara then landed in Ely in a house which had a secret.

The TARDIS later crashlanded in 1950s London, as a result of the psychic attack by a race of anemone changelings. Because of his bond with the ship, the Doctor fell into a coma as Steven and Sara brought him out, moments before the TARDIS locked itself as a defence mechanism, though he was conscious and aware of his surroundings. Steven and Sara were given shelter by Joseph Roberts, a Jamaican immigrant, and his nephews, Michael and Audrey Newman, but Michael was actually a changeling duplicate, and kidnapped the Doctor and the TARDIS. The changelings intended to use the TARDIS as a source of psychic energy for their morphing abilities, but deemed the Doctor unimportant their plans. As he gathered information about them during his imprisonment the Doctor finally awakened after two-weeks in his coma and, by Steven's intervention, reached Sara, explaining to her how to stop the changelings and shielded her presence so that she could reach their hideout undisturbed.

Attempting to rest on an asteroid, the TARDIS crew were caught in a conflict between members of the Space Security Services and a Sontaran platoon, the SSS forces seeking to take control of a Sontaran space cannon that would allow them to destroy any human ships passing through the only safe path through the asteroid belt. This crisis was made more complicated as Sara knew of this event from history. Despite the Sontarans infiltrating the SSS team using a stolen Rutan device to transform one of their own into a human, as well as the Sontarans managing to capture and interrogate Steven after a cave-in separated him from the rest of the team, the TARDIS crew and the SSS team leader were able to reach the cannon and destroy it with the aid of the asteroid's native population. Although the cannon was no longer a threat, Sara's knowledge of the future revealed that the asteroid would be found deserted around a year from then, suggesting that the Sontarans would kill them in revenge for this action, although the natives decided to hope for the best. With this example in mind, the Doctor, Steven and Sara decided that it was time to return to the battle with the Daleks. (AUDIO: The Sontarans [+]Loading...["The Sontarans (audio story)"])

The Doctor discovered that another time machine was on the same flight path as the TARDIS, and thought it might be the Daleks pursuing them. After briefly materialising in the Oval during a cricket match, the TARDIS landed on Tigus, where the Monk, seeking revenge for being stranded in 1066, sabotaged the TARDIS lock, stranding the Doctor and his companions. However, the Doctor quickly fixed the problem and departed, with the Monk following close behind.

After stealing the directional unit from the Monk's TARDIS and changing its shape to a police box, the Doctor was forced to hand over the real Taranium Core to the Daleks, who had taken Steven and Sara hostage. The Doctor used the directional unit to take the TARDIS back to Kembel. The Doctor activated the Daleks' Time Destructor, which destroyed them, transformed Kembel into a desert, but rapidly aged Sara to death.

The Doctor took Steven and Oliver to a satellite which was near a meteor field, but the Calleons chucked the TARDIS off the satellite when they saw no value in it, annoying the Doctor. However, when a girl entered the TARDIS, he realised that she had accidentally caused the satellite to fall out of orbit, resulting in the satellite being fractured when it struck a piece of space debris, the Doctor and the Calleons in one part of the satellite while Oliver and Steven were in another. After Steven was able to perform some complex flight calculations to nudge his fragment back to the Doctor's, the Doctor worked with Oliver and the Calleons to draw up new contracts that would help the humans benefit from the Calleons' work while Steven recovered.

The Fifth Doctor arrived, under the control of Lord Borusa, who had brought the Doctors there to help him retrieve immortality from Rassilon. The combined concentration of the three Doctors, however, was enough to break Borusa's control over their future incarnation. When Borusa spoke to Rassilon and took his offer of immortality, the First Doctor realised the true meaning of the inscriptions related to the immortality offered by Rassilon and triggered Borusa's eternal imprisonment within a sarcophagus.

Steven and the Doctor once again met the Vardans in the connection between Earth and the Mediosphere when they came up with the idea of using comedy television to spread a virus that would kill humans with laughter after studying radio frequencies from Earth in order to conquer the planet. However, a comedian, Teddy Baxter, and his straight man, Stan, perceived them while observing the stars. The Vardans managed to pull Stan into the Mediosphere, but were unable to do the same with Teddy.

While the Doctor and the TARDIS were absorbed into the Mediosphere, Steven was stranded in 1950s London. When the Vardans brought Steven and Teddy to their spaceship, they tried to absorb Teddy as well, but made the mistake of showing Teddy a possible future. This made it impossible for them to kill him, since, as the Doctor explained, once the future had been made real, it became a fixed point in time, and if the Vardans killed Teddy, this would trap them into a time bubble. Steven and the Doctor then helped Teddy to defeat the Vardans, chasing them from Earth, before bringing him back to Earth in the TARDIS.

The TARDIS took them to New York City in 1965, where a cult had formed around six self-proclaimed "gods", who performed miracles on their followers. The Doctor's suspicion proved true when the gods turned out to be alien lifeforms, who existed by belief and gained power equal to the faith the humans held in them. Recognising the danger such creatures posed, the Doctor worked with the US military to weaken the faith of the gods' worshippers, and subsequently driving the gods away by dropping a dud bomb that everyone watching believed would harm the gods. The Doctor and Steven subsequently accepted their differences and departed in the TARDIS, taking Dodo as their new companion. (PROSE: Salvation [+]Loading...["Salvation (novel)"])

Suffering from nightmares about his father, the Doctor awoke to find the TARDIS had been drawn to Gallifrey on the night he absconded with Susan. Roaming the deserted mountains, he encountered his old mentor, the Hermit, and was offered a chance to return to his life on Gallifrey before his departure, which would rewrite his own past and erasing his travels in time and space. Resisting temptation, the Doctor ran from Gallifrey once again, aware that his next destination would be his last. (PROSE: The Three Paths [+]Loading...["The Three Paths (short story)"])

After Ben and Polly awoke, the TARDIS fell out of the vortex, caught in the descent of an Angel falling through reality. Landing on an unnamed planet, the Doctor, Ben, and Polly spoke to the Angel, who told them all beings were always falling and to let go. When the Angel faded away, the time travellers departed.

Last stand at Snowcap base[[edit]]

The Doctor at Snowcap base. (TV: The Tenth Planet [+]Loading...["The Tenth Planet (TV story)"])

The Doctor, Ben and Polly arrived at the Snowcap base in 1986 Antarctica, where they were treated with hostility by General Cutler. When the pilots of Zeus IV discovered a new planet between Mars and Venus, the Doctor, having predicted this, tried to convince the crew that Earth had a twin planet millions of years ago called Mondas, but Cutler refused to listen and sent his men to claim the TARDIS. However, the station came under attack from the Cybermen. (TV: The Tenth Planet [+]Loading...["The Tenth Planet (TV story)"]) Knowing the Cyberman invasion would ultimately be resolved through his reading of historical accounts, the Doctor was content to be an observer, though remained ready to intervene should the situation call for it. (PROSE: Twice Upon a Time [+]Loading...["Twice Upon a Time (novelisation)"]) In truth, the interference of the Doctor and his companions did prevent the Cybermen from taking control of the Arctic. (PROSE: The Time Travellers [+]Loading...["The Time Travellers (novel)"])

The Doctor collapsed when Mondas began draining Earth's energies, (TV: The Tenth Planet [+]Loading...["The Tenth Planet (TV story)"]) due to his regeneration process starting, (PROSE: Interference - Book Two [+]Loading...["Interference - Book Two (novel)"]) and Mondas syphoning off his ability to resist regenerating any longer. (PROSE: Twice Upon a Time [+]Loading...["Twice Upon a Time (novelisation)"]) While unconscious during the crisis at Snowcap base, the Doctor was contacted by Steven and arrived to help stop the Vardan woman from Grace Alone getting revenge on him and Steven. The Doctor tried to contain the Vardan woman, but she escaped, only to be foiled by Steven's granddaughter, Sida, using the copy of the Doctor. Steven then sent the Doctor back to his body on Earth in order for him to get back to the TARDIS, sending the copy along with the Doctor to improve his chances of surviving the trip. (AUDIO: The Locked Room [+]Loading...["The Locked Room (audio story)"])

Having found a second wind, the Doctor confronted the Cybermen when they intended to take humanity to Mondas to turn them into their kind, but his attempt at negotiation resulted in him and Polly being taken hostage aboard the Cyber-ship. Held prisoner, the Doctor comforted Polly while Ben helped delay the Cyberman until Mondas was destroyed by overloading on Earth's energies. While emerging from his sleep, the Doctor overheard Ben claim that it was "all over now," and became weary. (TV: The Tenth Planet [+]Loading...["The Tenth Planet (TV story)"]) Having started his first regeneration, (TV: Twice Upon a Time [+]Loading...["Twice Upon a Time (TV story)"]) the Doctor left without Ben or Polly. (TV: The Tenth Planet [+]Loading...["The Tenth Planet (TV story)"])

Walking in the snow, the Doctor caught a fading image of Oliver Harper, (AUDIO: The First Wave [+]Loading...["The First Wave (audio story)"]) as he insisted to himself that he would not change and that the entire idea was "ridiculous." He was soon called out by a kneeling figure, who claimed to be "the Doctor". (TV: The Doctor Falls [+]Loading...["The Doctor Falls (TV story)"]) However, the Doctor, believing the TARDIS before him to be his own, instead thought that the man was another Time Lord come to reclaim it, only for time to freeze around them, and a World War I Captain to appear. Taking the Captain into the TARDIS to protect him from his pursuers, the Doctor saw that it was from his future and was convinced of the Twelfth Doctor's identity, shortly before the TARDIS was pulled into a hovering spaceship. Sent out as a distraction, the Doctor was addressed as "the Doctor of War" by a glass avatar of the Testimony Foundation, who offered to trade the Captain for the Twelfth Doctor's deceased companion, Bill Potts. Now joined by his future self, the Doctor examined the interior of the spaceship, and realised that the glass avatar was based off of a real person due to being too asymmetrical. Managing to escape as the Twelfth Doctor's TARDIS was taken by the Testimony, the two Doctors, the Captain and Bill retreated to the First Doctor's TARDIS, where the Twelfth Doctor decided to visit "an old friend" to figure out what the Testimony was.

Arriving at Villengard, the Captain was attacked by a familiar creature, and left inside the TARDIS with Bill as the two Doctors journeyed towards a tower, briefly stopping to discuss their shared refusal to regenerate. When the Twelfth Doctor entered the tower alone, the First Doctor examined the wreckage and found the remnants of Dalek shells as he was joined by Bill, who revealed herself to be a glass avatar. Despite the initial shock of there being "a spy in the camp", the First Doctor was told the true purpose of Testimony and its benevolent agenda, just as the Twelfth Doctor learned the same from the Dalek Pathweb. When the Doctors agreed that the Captain had to die at his allotted point in time, the Twelfth Doctor requested, much to the First Doctor's surprise, that they take him back, which was allowed by the Testimony.

Returning the Captain to 1914, the Doctor expressed his regret that "the universe generally fail[ed] to be a fairy tale," and promised to "make it [his] business" to look in on the Captain's family, the Lethbridge-Stewarts, as a favour. Hidden by a perception filter, the two Doctors watched as the Captain, now with no memory of having ever met them, prepared to meet his fate. Suddenly, Christmas carolling started up on both sides of the battlefield, and the Twelfth Doctor explained that he had adjusted the time frame by a couple of hours so that when time resumed for the Captain and his opponent, it would be the beginning of the Christmas Armistice. As the Twelfth Doctor explained the Armistice to the First Doctor, the Captain called for aid for his wounded opponent and the First Doctor realised that his future self maneuverered events to save both men's lives, and that that was "what it [meant] to be a Doctor of War." After watching the Armistice for a few hours, the First Doctor admitted that he felt ready to regenerate, but questioned his future self on his decision, with the Twelfth Doctor only answering that the First Doctor would have to find out "the long way round" before the First Doctor departed to his TARDIS.

Main article: First Doctor's renewal
The Doctor regenerates into his second incarnation.

Now inside the TARDIS and glowing with more regeneration energy, the Doctor managed to set the coordinates to return it to Antarctica in 1986 (TV: Twice Upon a Time [+]Loading...["Twice Upon a Time (TV story)"]) using the fast return switch. (PROSE: Twice Upon a Time [+]Loading...["Twice Upon a Time (novelisation)"]) As the TARDIS' controls continued to operate on their own, the Doctor opened the doors for Ben and Polly before collapsing unconscious to the floor, having lost the energy needed to keep his old body going. Before the astonished eyes of his friends, the Doctor transformed into a much younger man, (TV: The Tenth Planet [+]Loading...["The Tenth Planet (TV story)"]) at the age of 900 (PROSE: The Phoenix in the Tardis [+]Loading...{"page":"20","1":"The Phoenix in the Tardis (feature)"}) or 450-years-old.

When trapped in a dimensionally-unstable pocket universe controlled by Iam and the First Rani, the Sixth Doctor's morphic print was destabilised, causing him to unwillingly regress back through his previous incarnations as his body sought a stable morphic print. He eventually "settled" into his first body, which remained stable long enough for him to return to the TARDIS and return to his current self. (PROSE: State of Change [+]Loading...["State of Change (novel)"])

In a bid to detach the Funhouse from the TARDIS in the time vortex, the Sixth Doctor binded the switch that protected the TARDIS' passengers from the changing time fields outside with a string, allowing him to pull it remotely from the limited protection of the Zero Room. As a result, the Doctor immediately began to regress back through his first five incarnations as he made his way back to the console room where, as the First Doctor, he flipped the switch back, restoring himself while trapping the Funhouse in the vortex.

When the Eleventh Doctor entered into the T'keyn Nexus in order to defend himself, Matrix projections of his previous incarnations, including the First Doctor, appeared inside it to defend themselves as well.

Other realities[[edit]]

Alternate timelines[[edit]]

When the Cyberiad allied with Rassilon to take over history, (COMIC: Supremacy of the Cybermen [+]Loading...["Supremacy of the Cybermen (comic story)"]) the First Doctor was ambushed by three CyberMondans outside his TARDIS in 76 Totter's Lane on the day he was supposed to leave Earth with Susan Foreman, Ian Chesterton and Barbara Wright. When Susan entered the junkyard, the Doctor told her to run. (COMIC: Prologue: The First Doctor [+]Loading...["Prologue: The First Doctor (comic story)"]) This timeline was eventually unwritten by Rassilon and the Twelfth Doctor. (COMIC: Supremacy of the Cybermen [+]Loading...["Supremacy of the Cybermen (comic story)"])

When Jamie McCrimmon and Zoe Heriot reattached the time path indicator in the Second Doctor's TARDIS, they overloaded its systems, causing a temporal collision with the First Doctor's ship, disabling its dematerialisation circuit and causing it to crash on Urbinia. The Doctor spent the next three months repairing the circuit. When he finished, the Dalek Empire invaded the planet, able to complete the Time Destructor without the Doctor's interference. With the chancellor fleeing, the Doctor took charge of the planet, trying to coordinate an evacuation before he was approached by his succeeding incarnation who explained how the timeline had been altered and what the correct path should be. Though the First Doctor was initially amenable, he protested when he learned that Katarina would die. After escaping a Dalek landing force, the Doctors reunited with their companions in the spaceport where the Second Doctor explained to Katarina what would happen. When the Daleks turned the Time Destructor on the planet, Katarina agreed to the Second Doctor's plan, the First Doctor giving his successor the repaired dematerialisation circuit. Unsure if the timeline would be reset, the First Doctor stayed behind in the spaceport, defying the Daleks before the timeline was ultimately reset.

Mysteries and discrepancies[[edit]]

  • When he, Ian, Barbara and Vicki were being chased by the Daleks through time in TV: The Chase [+]Loading...["The Chase (TV story)"], the Doctor claimed to have built his TARDIS, contrasting later accounts that showed him having stolen the ship from a workshop, as well as a statement from TV: The Impossible Planet [+]Loading...["The Impossible Planet (TV story)"] that described TARDISes as being "grown" rather than built. PROSE: The Taking of Planet 5 [+]Loading...["The Taking of Planet 5 (novel)"] would try to rectify the statement by explaining that the Doctor had added various components to the TARDIS console to prevent himself forming a complete mental link to the ship that would have made it easier for the Time Lords to find him.
  • The matter of the Doctor's age and how long he lived in his first incarnation is unclear, the Second Doctor stated that he was around 450-years-old in TV: The Tomb of the Cybermen [+]Loading...["The Tomb of the Cybermen (TV story)"]. In AUDIO: Here There Be Monsters [+]Loading...["Here There Be Monsters (audio story)"], Susan compares him to an adolescent by Time Lord standards.

Behind the scenes[[edit]]


Actors considered for the role of "Doctor Who", as he was then known, included Geoffrey Bayldon [1], Cyril Cusack[2], Hugh David[3] and Leslie French.[4] Bayldon would later play an alternate version of the First Doctor in two Unbound adventures for Big Finish Productions: Auld Mortality [+]Loading...["Auld Mortality (audio story)"] and A Storm of Angels [+]Loading...["A Storm of Angels (audio story)"]. William Hartnell had, up until that point, mainly played small-time thugs and other unsympathetic parts in crime films and humourless military men in comedies. Producer Verity Lambert was inspired to ask him to accept the role after seeing him in his well-known role in This Sporting Life, which convinced her that he could play a tough, yet shaded and sympathetic character.

Other actors in the role[[edit]]

During the First Doctor's tenure, other actors occasionally stood in for Hartnell, either for demanding scenes or due to Hartnell being ill or otherwise unavailable, such as Albert Ward, who served as a hand double for Hartnell during The Romans, (DWM 251) The Celestial Toymaker, (DWM 196) and The Smugglers. (DWM 321)

Brian Proudfoot stood in for Hartnell during location filming of the Doctor roaming the French countryside on foot in long shots for The Reign of Terror, being photographed from the back. (DWM 204) He later doubled for Hartnell again during The Space Museum. (DWM 316)

Edmund Warwick stood in for Hartnell in the third episode of The Dalek Invasion of Earth after Hartnell suffered an on-set injury. (DWM 280) Warwick later played the Doctor in some scenes of The Chase when Hartnell was playing the Robot Doctor.

Gordon Craig doubled for Hartnell during The Smugglers, (DWM 321) and then again during The Tenth Planet, first acting as a body double during the snowstorm scenes in the first episode, and then replacing Hartnell for all of the third episode after he was taken ill. (DWM 214)

When the time came for the First Doctor to appear in the 1983 Children in Need anniversary special TV: The Five Doctors, actor Richard Hurndall was hired to play the role, standing in for William Hartnell, who had died in the mid-1970s. A clip of Hartnell as the Doctor from The Dalek Invasion of Earth preceded the opening titles, and Hartnell's name appeared amongst those of his fellow Doctors in the end credits.

During the 50th anniversary year in 2013, Hartnell appeared in TV: The Name of the Doctor by way of manipulated stock footage and audio, allowing the actor to posthumously share dialogue with a Clara Oswald splinter on Gallifrey. Later in the same episode, the First Doctor is seen walking past the real Clara within the Doctor's time stream, with body double Kevin Legg [5] made up to emulate the appearance of Richard Hurndall. Later in 2013, Hartnell was again represented via stock footage in TV: The Day of the Doctor, but with John Guilor providing newly recorded dialogue, and Legg once again serving as a body double. (DWMSE 38)

David Bradley played Hartnell himself, playing the First Doctor, in the 2013 docu-drama An Adventure in Space and Time. In 2017, Bradley was brought to the show proper, to play the First Doctor himself at the end of TV: The Doctor Falls as a lead in to the 2017 Christmas special, TV: Twice Upon a Time. Bradley also voiced the First Doctor in the Big Finish audio series The First Doctor Adventures.

In audio, William Russell officially voiced the First Doctor for Big Finish's The Light at the End, having previously voiced him in narration form during all the Companion Chronicles audios that featured his own character Ian. Russell would then reprise the role when required in The Early Adventures, while Peter Purves portrays him in the audios that feature Steven. After his casting, Elliot Chapman also began playing the Doctor in narration form in audios that feature Ben.

Other matters[[edit]]

A portrait of the First Doctor (DWM 305)
  • When introduced in the script for An Unearthly Child, the First Doctor was physically described with the statement, "His clothes are bizarre."
  • Author Marc Platt's description of the First Doctor's portrait in the novel Lungbarrow was inspired by a 1930s picture of William Hartnell that he found in the BBC reference library. (REF: Lungbarrow ebook) The portrait was depicted by Daryl Joyce in an illustration for DWM 305.
