You can certainly choose to enjoy Doctor Who as purely a television series. But did you know that there are far more stories told in the comic and audio form than exist in the whole television catalogue? Luckily, there's no such thing as canon in this fandom.

The Early Adventures are full-cast audio dramas recreating various TARDIS crews accompanying the First and Second Doctors. The First Doctor is voiced by William Russell or Peter Purves, depending on whether Ian Chesterton or Steven Taylor travels with the Doctor. The Second Doctor is always voiced by Frazer Hines since Jamie McCrimmon was his constant Companion.
Treasure Trail was a 1976 Fourth Doctor/Sarah Jane TV Comic story that was a pure historical set in the waning days of World War II. Although many other Doctor Who stories were set during the Second World War, Treasure Trail was unusual for portraying the Italian resistance, and was almost certainly the only Doctor Who story in any medium to depict the Nazi plunder of European art.
