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 as 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 some to call him Dr. Who.

Biography[]

Main article: First Doctor/Biography

Beginning after he fled his home world in a stolen TARDIS with his granddaughter Susan Foreman, (TV: An Unearthly Child [+]Anthony Coburn, adapted from The Pilot Episode (Anthony Coburn), Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1963)., The War Games [+]Terrance Dicks and Malcolm Hulke, Doctor Who season 6 (BBC1, 1969).) the Doctor's travels through time and space were mostly random due to faulty components in a TARDIS that he barely knew how to fly. (TV: The Daleks [+]Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1963-1964).)

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. (TV: An Unearthly Child [+]Anthony Coburn, adapted from The Pilot Episode (Anthony Coburn), Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1963).) 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. (TV: The Edge of Destruction [+]David Whitaker, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1964)., The Aztecs [+]John Lucarotti, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC1, 1964)., Planet of Giants [+]Louis Marks, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1964)., The Chase [+]Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1965).) It was during one of their early adventures that the Doctor first came into conflict with the Daleks, (TV: The Daleks [+]Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1963-1964).) a species that would quickly become one of his greatest enemies. (TV: The Dalek Invasion of Earth [+]Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1964)., The Chase [+]Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1965)., The Daleks' Master Plan [+]Terry Nation and Dennis Spooner, Doctor Who season 3 (BBC1, 1965-1966).)

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, (TV: The Dalek Invasion of Earth [+]Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1964).) 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, (TV: The Rescue [+]David Whitaker, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1965).) seeing her a surrogate to fill Susan's spot in his travels. (TV: The Time Meddler [+]Phil Ford, Tales of the TARDIS tales of the tardis (BBC iPlayer, 2023).) During a confrontation with the Daleks, the Doctor used one of the Dalek time machines to return Ian and Barbara to their proper time, (TV: The Chase [+]Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1965).) only to quickly find their place in the TARDIS taken by stowaway Steven Taylor, with whom the Doctor had a relatively uneasy relationship. (TV: The Time Meddler [+]Dennis Spooner, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1965).)

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, (TV: The Myth Makers [+]Donald Cotton, Doctor Who season 3 (BBC1, 1965).) 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, (TV: The Daleks' Master Plan [+]Terry Nation and Dennis Spooner, Doctor Who season 3 (BBC1, 1965-1966).) and even briefly walked out the TARDIS after another falling out, but returned when Dodo Chaplet forced her way in the TARDIS. (TV: The Massacre [+]John Lucarotti and Donald Tosh, Doctor Who season 3 (BBC1, 1966).) Ultimately, Steven decided to stay to help a civilisation they had encountered, (TV: The Savages [+]Ian Stuart Black, Doctor Who season 3 (BBC1, 1966).) 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. (TV: The War Machines [+]Ian Stuart Black, Doctor Who season 3 (BBC1, 1966).)

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. (TV: The Tenth Planet [+]Kit Pedler and Gerry Davis, Doctor Who season 4 (BBC1, 1966).) 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. (TV: Twice Upon a Time [+]Steven Moffat, Doctor Who Christmas Special 2017 (BBC One, 2017).)

Personality[]

VickiDocSmiling

The Doctor smiles as he cuddles Vicki. (TV: "The Watcher" [+]Part of The Time Meddler, Dennis Spooner, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1965).)

In his older years, the First Doctor was a guarded figure who was slow to trust newcomers who learnt of him, (TV: "An Unearthly Child" [+]Part of An Unearthly Child, Anthony Coburn, adapted from The Pilot Episode (Anthony Coburn), Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1963)., "The Brink of Disaster" [+]Part of The Edge of Destruction, David Whitaker, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1964).) but once his trust had been earned, he would show himself to be a mischievous anti-authoritarian, (TV: "The Dimensions of Time" [+]Part of The Space Museum, Glyn Jones, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1965)., The Savages [+]Ian Stuart Black, Doctor Who season 3 (BBC1, 1966).) who would not follow instructions without giving his own input, (TV: "The Forest of Fear" [+]Part of An Unearthly Child, Anthony Coburn, adapted from The Pilot Episode (Anthony Coburn), Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1963).) nor would he stand by and allow someone to bark orders without contributing themselves. (TV: "Guests of Madame Guillotine" [+]Part of The Reign of Terror, Dennis Spooner, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC1, 1964).) He was protective of the young women he took on as companions, as they reminded him of his granddaughter. (TV: "Bell of Doom" [+]Part of The Massacre, John Lucarotti and Donald Tosh, Doctor Who season 3 (BBC1, 1966).)

The First Doctor was a pragmatic individual, opting to focus on an objective that would benefit the majority, even if it meant being counterintuitive to his own safety and freedom, (TV: "The Forest of Fear" [+]Part of An Unearthly Child, Anthony Coburn, adapted from The Pilot Episode (Anthony Coburn), Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1963)., "Guests of Madame Guillotine" [+]Part of The Reign of Terror, Dennis Spooner, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC1, 1964)., "Crater of Needles" [+]Part of The Web Planet, Bill Strutton, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1965)., The Tenth Planet [+]Kit Pedler and Gerry Davis, Doctor Who season 4 (BBC1, 1966).) and was not afraid to leave someone to their fate if it was too late to save them, (TV: "The Death of Time" [+]Part of The Chase, Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1965).) or if they were fated to die. (TV: "Bell of Doom" [+]Part of The Massacre, John Lucarotti and Donald Tosh, Doctor Who season 3 (BBC1, 1966).) He preferred to remain in the background and "observe, note, collate, and then conclude" before he acted. (TV: "Trap of Steel" [+]Part of Galaxy 4, William Emms, Doctor Who season 3 (BBC1, 1965).)

Disdainful towards "fools", (TV: "The Wheel of Fortune" [+]Part of The Crusade, David Whitaker, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1965).) and rather "tetchy" due to his youth, (TV: The Five Doctors [+]Terrance Dicks, Doctor Who 20th Anniversary Special (Public Broadcasting Service, 1983).) the Doctor thought highly of his "superior brain", (TV: "The Ordeal" [+]Part of The Daleks, Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1963-1964).) and was prone to criticise those whom he felt were beneath his intellect, (TV: "The Forest of Fear" [+]Part of An Unearthly Child, Anthony Coburn, adapted from The Pilot Episode (Anthony Coburn), Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1963)., "Five Hundred Eyes" [+]Part of Marco Polo, John Lucarotti, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1964)., "The Wheel of Fortune" [+]Part of The Crusade, David Whitaker, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1965).) even believing himself superior to those he saw as intellectually inferior. (COMIC: A Religious Experience [+]Tim Quinn, Doctor Who Yearbook 1994 (Doctor Who Yearbook comic stories, Marvel Comics, 1993).) He initially refused to kneel to Kublai Khan due to both his pride and a pain in his back, but was talked into do so by Susan, though he remained defiant towards the Great Khan's demands, which earned him the respect of the Khan. (TV: "Mighty Kublai Khan" [+]Part of Marco Polo, John Lucarotti, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1964).) He did, however, respectfully bow to the Empress. (TV: "Assassin at Peking" [+]Part of Marco Polo, John Lucarotti, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1964).) He could put his own interests ahead of others', but would abandon his plans if he realised they were putting him in danger. (TV: "The Survivors" [+]Part of The Daleks, Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1963-1964).)

Originally a very difficult and stubborn misanthrope, (TV: "An Unearthly Child" [+]Part of An Unearthly Child, Anthony Coburn, adapted from The Pilot Episode (Anthony Coburn), Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1963)., "The Forest of Fear" [+]Part of An Unearthly Child, Anthony Coburn, adapted from The Pilot Episode (Anthony Coburn), Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1963).) who would leave others to their own business in spite of the dangers they were in, (TV: "The Ambush" [+]Part of The Daleks, Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1963-1964)., "Strangers in Space" [+]Part of The Sensorites, Peter R. Newman, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC1, 1964).) the First Doctor matured from an apparent selfishness and became more inviting, (TV: "Desperate Measures" [+]Part of The Rescue, David Whitaker, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1965)., "The Watcher" [+]Part of The Time Meddler, Dennis Spooner, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1965)., "Horse of Destruction" [+]Part of The Myth Makers, Donald Cotton, Doctor Who season 3 (BBC1, 1965)., "Bell of Doom" [+]Part of The Massacre, John Lucarotti and Donald Tosh, Doctor Who season 3 (BBC1, 1966)., The Smugglers [+]Brian Hayles, Doctor Who season 4 (BBC1, 1966).) less willing to involve others in his dangerous exploits, (TV: "The Death of Time" [+]Part of The Chase, Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1965).) and more friendly and approaching to new people. (TV: "Don't Shoot the Pianist" [+]Part of The Gunfighters, Donald Cotton, Doctor Who season 3 (BBC1, 1966).) His happier, kinder characteristics fostered when he began to acquire an entourage of companions to accompany him throughout the wonders of the fourth dimension and learned to be a caregiver with a sense of justice in a universe afflicted by evils. (COMIC: Hunters of the Burning Stone [+]Scott Gray, DWM Comics (2013).) However, his ego persisted, with him telling white lies to inflate his own self-importance, (PROSE: Twice Upon a Time [+]Paul Cornell, adapted from Twice Upon a Time (Steven Moffat), Target novelisations (Target Books, 2018).) and his false modesty at being heralded by the Thals when he visited their city. (AUDIO: Return to Skaro [+]Andrew Smith, The First Doctor Adventures: Volume Four (The First Doctor Adventures, Big Finish Productions, 2020).)

In his youth, the young Doctor was something of a pessimist, until a conversation with the Hermit opened his eyes to the beauties in the mundane, (TV: The Time Monster [+]Robert Sloman, Doctor Who season 9 (BBC1, 1972).) leading him to believe that it was impossible to "diminish wonder, beauty and discovery," even when people tried to take the mystery out of things. (PROSE: Longest Day [+]Michael Collier, BBC Eighth Doctor Adventures (BBC Books, 1998).) He never felt at home on Gallifrey. (AUDIO: No Place Like Home [+]Iain McLaughlin, Big Finish DWM originals (Big Finish Productions, 2003).) Upon leaving Gallifrey, the Doctor did not see "good" as "a practical survival strategy", as "it require[d] loyalty, self-sacrifice, [and] love", (TV: Twice Upon a Time [+]Steven Moffat, Doctor Who Christmas Special 2017 (BBC One, 2017).) but told Susan that "individuals hungry for power" were to be fought, and that "the right thing to do was often forbidden". (COMIC: Time & Time Again [+]Paul Cornell, DWM Comics (Marvel Comics, 1993).)

During his early travels, the Doctor rarely smiled, (PROSE: Dr. First [+]Error: Code 2 - no data stored in variables, cache or SMW.) although, when he first witnessed the French Revolution, his emotions were swept up in the revolutionary fervour and optimism as the French population around him rose up against their rulers. (PROSE: Just War [+]Lance Parkin, Virgin New Adventures (Virgin Books, 1996).) However, he remained satisfied with merely observing the universe due to having the non-interference policy ingrained into his psyche. (PROSE: Time and Relative [+]Kim Newman, Telos Doctor Who novellas (Telos Publishing, 2001).) While he felt he had a duty to prevent outside intervention from corrupting a society, (COMIC: Operation Proteus [+]Gareth Roberts, DWM Comics (Marvel Comics UK, 1995).) he was willing to allow civilisations to be destroyed without aiding them, until Susan convinced him to save Earth from the Cold, which did gave him "a feeling of satisfaction". (PROSE: Time and Relative [+]Kim Newman, Telos Doctor Who novellas (Telos Publishing, 2001).) Despite this, the Doctor was mostly self-serving, even locking fleeing people out of Coal Hill School to better protect himself from the Space wolves. (PROSE: Doctor Who and the Horror of Coal Hill [+]Error: Code 2 - no data stored in variables, cache or SMW.) However, he still respected humanity as "intelligent, sentient beings" that were deserving of basic respects. (COMIC: Operation Proteus [+]Gareth Roberts, DWM Comics (Marvel Comics UK, 1995).)

Accusation

The Doctor accuses Ian and Barbara of sabotage. (TV: "The Edge of Destruction" [+]Part of The Edge of Destruction, David Whitaker, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1964).)

When the Doctor first met Ian and Barbara, he abducted them, and even set the TARDIS console to shock Ian when he tried to open the doors, justifying his actions by claiming he was keeping himself and Susan safe. He regarded humans as primitives, (TV: "An Unearthly Child" [+]Part of An Unearthly Child, Anthony Coburn, adapted from The Pilot Episode (Anthony Coburn), Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1963).) and contemplated killing the mortally wounded Za so that he would not slow him down. When Ian caught him apparently ready to bludgeon the man with a rock, the Doctor explained he merely wanted Za to draw him a map, (TV: "The Forest of Fear" [+]Part of An Unearthly Child, Anthony Coburn, adapted from The Pilot Episode (Anthony Coburn), Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1963).) but this was, in fact, a lie to cover up his murder attempt. (PROSE: The Eight Doctors [+]Terrance Dicks, BBC Eighth Doctor Adventures (BBC Books, 1997).) When first visiting Skaro, the Doctor was willing to risk everyone's safety so he could satisfy his own curiosity, resulting in them nearly dying from radiation poisoning in the prison cells of the Dalek city. (TV: The Daleks [+]Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1963-1964).) He also threatened to throw Ian and Barbara into space after accusing them of sabotage. When proven wrong, the Doctor humbly apologised. (TV: "The Brink of Disaster" [+]Part of The Edge of Destruction, David Whitaker, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1964).)

He was willingly to put his morals aside to have others fight his battles for him, (TV: "The Expedition" [+]Part of The Daleks, Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1963-1964).) but was horrified when he learnt the full extent of the Daleks plans to exterminate the Thals, branding it "sheer murder". (TV: "The Ordeal" [+]Part of The Daleks, Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1963-1964).) He was also quick to bargain with the Tribe of Gum for Ian's safety, (TV: "The Cave of Skulls" [+]Part of An Unearthly Child, Anthony Coburn, adapted from The Pilot Episode (Anthony Coburn), Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1963).) and offered to help build a ship for the Daleks to leave Skaro in return for Susan's safety. (TV: "The Rescue" [+]Part of The Daleks, Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1963-1964).) The Twelfth Doctor later opined that his experience on Skaro helped shape his identity for the better. (TV: Into the Dalek [+]Phil Ford and Steven Moffat, Doctor Who series 8 (BBC One, 2014).)

As the Doctor travelled more, he began to thaw and help people, albeit reluctantly at times, (TV: "The Sea of Death" [+]Part of The Keys of Marinus, Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 1 ('"`UNIQ--poem-00000000-QINU`"', 1964).) and more willingly on other occasions. (TV: "Guests of Madame Guillotine" [+]Part of The Reign of Terror, Dennis Spooner, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC1, 1964).) Eventually, he would not hesitate to dare to stop any "menace to common humanity" that he encountered in his travels, sometimes out of a "moral obligation" to minimise damages he felt responsible for. (TV: "Dangerous Journey" [+]Part of Planet of Giants, Louis Marks, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1964)., "The Daleks" [+]Part of The Dalek Invasion of Earth, Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1964)., "The Waking Ally" [+]Part of The Dalek Invasion of Earth, Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1964)., "Day of Armageddon" [+]Part of The Daleks' Master Plan, Terry Nation and Dennis Spooner, Doctor Who season 3 (BBC1, 1965-1966)., The Savages [+]Ian Stuart Black, Doctor Who season 3 (BBC1, 1966)., The Smugglers [+]Brian Hayles, Doctor Who season 4 (BBC1, 1966).) However, he did not see himself as a saviour, instead as someone merely "doing what [had] to be done". (TV: "Day of Armageddon" [+]Part of The Daleks' Master Plan, Terry Nation and Dennis Spooner, Doctor Who season 3 (BBC1, 1965-1966).) Indeed, when the Doctor heard his twelfth incarnation declare the Earth to be protected, he failed to realise that his future self was referring to himself, due to being in the "early days". (TV: Twice Upon a Time [+]Steven Moffat, Doctor Who Christmas Special 2017 (BBC One, 2017).)

Doctor Who and the Daleks First Doctor saves Voord from Aligators

The Doctor saves an unconscious Voord that had been trying to kill him. (PROSE: Doctor Who and the Daleks [+]1964.)

While he initially refused to help a fallen enemy, (TV: "The Forest of Fear" [+]Part of An Unearthly Child, Anthony Coburn, adapted from The Pilot Episode (Anthony Coburn), Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1963).) and would not hesitate to abandon someone to save himself, (TV: "The Survivors" [+]Part of The Daleks, Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1963-1964).) the Doctor came to see it as "monstrous" and "inhuman" to leave a person to die by refusing them aid. (TV: "A Race Against Death" [+]Part of The Sensorites, Peter R. Newman, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC1, 1964)., The Savages [+]Ian Stuart Black, Doctor Who season 3 (BBC1, 1966)., The Tenth Planet [+]Kit Pedler and Gerry Davis, Doctor Who season 4 (BBC1, 1966).) He even negotiated the release of the First Monk from the Daleks, despite peace not being brokered between the two. (TV: "Escape Switch" [+]Part of The Daleks' Master Plan, Terry Nation and Dennis Spooner, Doctor Who season 3 (BBC1, 1965-1966).)

He would sometimes fall back into old habits of focusing solely on his own interests, but was quicker to put his companions' safety first than he was before. (TV: "Five Hundred Eyes" [+]Part of Marco Polo, John Lucarotti, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1964).) He would also forget his niceties when under pressure. (TV: "The Warriors of Death" [+]Part of The Aztecs, John Lucarotti, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC1, 1964)., "Planet of Giants" [+]Part of Planet of Giants, Louis Marks, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1964)., "The Planet of Decision" [+]Part of The Chase, Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1965).) While he claimed to never give advice, (TV: "The Rescue" [+]Part of The Daleks, Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1963-1964).) the Doctor would share his wisdoms to those that needed it, (TV: "The Keys of Marinus" [+]Part of The Keys of Marinus, Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 1 ('"`UNIQ--poem-00000000-QINU`"', 1964).) seeing that it was his responsibility as an elder to use his accumulated knowledge to help other people. (TV: "Hidden Danger" [+]Part of The Sensorites, Peter R. Newman, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC1, 1964).) He came to hold such a welcoming presence that others would instantly feel they could trust him. (TV: "Desperate Measures" [+]Part of The Rescue, David Whitaker, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1965)., "The Wheel of Fortune" [+]Part of The Crusade, David Whitaker, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1965).)

While he could get easily flustered when he lost control of a situation, (TV: "The Cave of Skulls" [+]Part of An Unearthly Child, Anthony Coburn, adapted from The Pilot Episode (Anthony Coburn), Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1963)., "The Brink of Disaster" [+]Part of The Edge of Destruction, David Whitaker, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1964).) the First Doctor did not allow himself to be easily intimidated, (TV: "The Forest of Fear" [+]Part of An Unearthly Child, Anthony Coburn, adapted from The Pilot Episode (Anthony Coburn), Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1963)., "Mighty Kublai Khan" [+]Part of Marco Polo, John Lucarotti, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1964)., "The Unwilling Warriors" [+]Part of The Sensorites, Peter R. Newman, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC1, 1964)., "The Daleks" [+]Part of The Dalek Invasion of Earth, Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1964)., "Horse of Destruction" [+]Part of The Myth Makers, Donald Cotton, Doctor Who season 3 (BBC1, 1965)., The War Machines [+]Ian Stuart Black, Doctor Who season 3 (BBC1, 1966)., The Smugglers [+]Brian Hayles, Doctor Who season 4 (BBC1, 1966).) even being willing to take a fight directly to his adversary's lair, (COMIC: The Klepton Parasites [+]Neville Main, TVC comic stories (1964-1965).) as he did not like to show when he was afraid. (TV: Twice Upon a Time [+]Steven Moffat, Doctor Who Christmas Special 2017 (BBC One, 2017).) He employed self-control to keep his emotions in check and prevent his brain from becoming vulnerable to fear, (TV: "The Unwilling Warriors" [+]Part of The Sensorites, Peter R. Newman, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC1, 1964).) though would react with indignity if he thought his capabilities were being belittled. (TV: "The Slave Traders" [+]Part of The Romans, Dennis Spooner, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1965)., "The Planet of Decision" [+]Part of The Chase, Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1965)., "The Celestial Toyroom" [+]Part of The Celestial Toymaker, Brian Hayles, Doctor Who season 3 (BBC1, 1966).)

Doctor and Ian face off in TARDIS CaveofSkulls

The Doctor trades words with Ian. (TV: "The Cave of Skulls" [+]Part of An Unearthly Child, Anthony Coburn, adapted from The Pilot Episode (Anthony Coburn), Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1963).)

When he disagreed with something, the Doctor would deny the facts his companions gave to him in favour of believing his opinions. (TV: "The Forest of Fear" [+]Part of An Unearthly Child, Anthony Coburn, adapted from The Pilot Episode (Anthony Coburn), Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1963)., "The Brink of Disaster" [+]Part of The Edge of Destruction, David Whitaker, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1964)., "The Wall of Lies" [+]Part of Marco Polo, John Lucarotti, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1964)., "Journey into Terror" [+]Part of The Chase, Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1965)., "The Watcher" [+]Part of The Time Meddler, Dennis Spooner, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1965).) He would get particularly annoyed with those who doubted the TARDIS could actually travel through space and time. (TV: "The Cave of Skulls" [+]Part of An Unearthly Child, Anthony Coburn, adapted from The Pilot Episode (Anthony Coburn), Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1963)., "The Watcher" [+]Part of The Time Meddler, Dennis Spooner, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1965).) However, when he realised he had been in the wrong, the Doctor would acknowledge his blame in events and apologise. (TV: "The Cave of Skulls" [+]Part of An Unearthly Child, Anthony Coburn, adapted from The Pilot Episode (Anthony Coburn), Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1963)., "The Brink of Disaster" [+]Part of The Edge of Destruction, David Whitaker, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1964).)

Craving the adventures to be found in the universe, (TV: "A Land of Fear" [+]Part of The Reign of Terror, Dennis Spooner, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC1, 1964).) the Doctor did not like the idea of staying still, believing he would be "bored to tears doing nothing", (TV: "The Temple of Evil" [+]Part of The Aztecs, John Lucarotti, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC1, 1964).) even deriding sleep as being "[for] tortoises". (COMIC: In-Between Times [+]Error: Code 2 - no data stored in variables, cache or SMW.) The French Revolution was among his favourite places in time and space. (TV: "A Land of Fear" [+]Part of The Reign of Terror, Dennis Spooner, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC1, 1964).) He enjoyed learning of the new places he found himself and their properties, with his notebook being of high importance to him due to what he had documented inside of it. (TV: "The Cave of Skulls" [+]Part of An Unearthly Child, Anthony Coburn, adapted from The Pilot Episode (Anthony Coburn), Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1963).) When he was given the chance to obtain what he desired most, the Doctor asked for "a well-equipped laboratory with every conceivable instrument", (TV: "The Velvet Web" [+]Part of The Keys of Marinus, Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 1 ('"`UNIQ--poem-00000000-QINU`"', 1964).) and he would also seek out other scientists to discuss their theories when the chance presented itself. (TV: "War of God" [+]Part of The Massacre, John Lucarotti and Donald Tosh, Doctor Who season 3 (BBC1, 1966).)

He could get excited by frightening experiences, such as being insistent on exploring an abandoned city, (TV: "The Dead Planet" [+]Part of The Daleks, Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1963-1964).) erupting into uncontrollable giggles when told Marco Polo would take his TARDIS as a gift for Kublai Khan, (TV: "The Roof of the World" [+]Part of Marco Polo, John Lucarotti, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1964).) chuckling at the thought of an ambush as he and Ian pursued a person in a dark tunnel, (TV: "A Desperate Venture" [+]Part of The Sensorites, Peter R. Newman, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC1, 1964).) laughing as he fought off the assassin Ascaris, (TV: "All Roads Lead to Rome" [+]Part of The Romans, Dennis Spooner, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1965).) and finding amusement after he realised he accidentally had a hand in burning down Rome. (TV: "Inferno" [+]Part of The Romans, Dennis Spooner, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1965).)

He admired those who built and rebuilt civilisations, (TV: "The Rescue" [+]Part of The Daleks, Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1963-1964).) and got especially giddy when he realised he was watching a solar system being created. (TV: "The Brink of Disaster" [+]Part of The Edge of Destruction, David Whitaker, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1964).) While he disagreed with the Aztecs using human sacrifices, he did admire them for their architectural achievements, (TV: "The Temple of Evil" [+]Part of The Aztecs, John Lucarotti, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC1, 1964).) and also held a passion for fifth dynasty Aquilian architecture. (PROSE: The Golden Door [+]David Auger, Decalog (Virgin Decalogs, 1994).) However, he took contradictory satisfaction in destroying something that helped in "evil". (TV: The Savages [+]Ian Stuart Black, Doctor Who season 3 (BBC1, 1966).)

He disliked whistling, (TV: "The Executioners" [+]Part of The Chase, Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1965).) unnecessary climbing, (TV: "The Watcher" [+]Part of The Time Meddler, Dennis Spooner, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1965).) riding camels, (COMIC: Plague of the Black Scorpi [+]Bill Mevin, TVC comic stories (1966).) hippies and pop music. (PROSE: Dr. First [+]Error: Code 2 - no data stored in variables, cache or SMW.) He also "loathed" recorders, (AUDIO: The Power of the Daleks [+]Error: Code 2 - no data stored in variables, cache or SMW.) and looked down on the sonic screwdriver and the sonic sunglasses. (TV: Twice Upon a Time [+]Steven Moffat, Doctor Who Christmas Special 2017 (BBC One, 2017).)

The First Doctor liked pomegranates, grapes, (TV: "The Velvet Web" [+]Part of The Keys of Marinus, Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 1 ('"`UNIQ--poem-00000000-QINU`"', 1964).) hot chocolate, (TV: "The Bride of Sacrifice" [+]Part of The Aztecs, John Lucarotti, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC1, 1964).) coconut milk, (COMIC: Plague of the Black Scorpi [+]Bill Mevin, TVC comic stories (1966).) and chocolate ice cream. (PROSE: Bide-a-Wee [+]Anthony Keetch, Short Trips: Past Tense (Short Trips, 2004).)

While he claimed to "never touch" alcohol, and would decline it when offered, (TV: "A Holiday for the Doctor" [+]Part of The Gunfighters, Donald Cotton, Doctor Who season 3 (BBC1, 1966)., The Smugglers [+]Brian Hayles, Doctor Who season 4 (BBC1, 1966).) the Doctor enjoyed mead, (TV: "The Watcher" [+]Part of The Time Meddler, Dennis Spooner, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1965).) wine, (TV: The Smugglers [+]Brian Hayles, Doctor Who season 4 (BBC1, 1966).) and kept brandy in his TARDIS. (TV: Twice Upon a Time [+]Steven Moffat, Doctor Who Christmas Special 2017 (BBC One, 2017).) He also drank Madeira with Samuel Pike, (TV: The Smugglers [+]Brian Hayles, Doctor Who season 4 (BBC1, 1966).) shared a few glasses of Médoc with John Lucarotti, (PROSE: The Meeting [+]John Lucarotti, Brief Encounter First printing (1990).) and told Steven that he wanted chilled white wine while in France. (PROSE: The Massacre [+]John Lucarotti, adapted from The Massacre (Donald Tosh and John Lucarotti), Target novelisations (Target Books, 1987).)

Believing that "nothing [was] impossible", (PROSE: The Nine-Day Queen [+]Matthew Jones, Decalog 2: Lost Property (Virgin Decalogs, 1995).) the Doctor was adamant that there was "always a way" out of a conundrum, (TV: "The Expedition" [+]Part of The Daleks, Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1963-1964)., "Planet of Giants" [+]Part of Planet of Giants, Louis Marks, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1964).) and would implore those in doubt to have hope, (TV: "The Day of Darkness" [+]Part of The Aztecs, John Lucarotti, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC1, 1964).) though he thought hope was forever linked with fear. (TV: "The Forest of Fear" [+]Part of An Unearthly Child, Anthony Coburn, adapted from The Pilot Episode (Anthony Coburn), Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1963).) When Dyoni feared the Thals' history would die with them, the Doctor encouraged her to have hope, (TV: "The Ambush" [+]Part of The Daleks, Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1963-1964).) and also encouraged Carol Richmond to have courage that John would recover from the Sensorites' attack. (TV: "A Race Against Death" [+]Part of The Sensorites, Peter R. Newman, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC1, 1964).) He was insisted that he should not give up a task until he had at least tried it first. (TV: "Dangerous Journey" [+]Part of Planet of Giants, Louis Marks, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1964).)

While he could be pessimistic, (TV: "The Forest of Fear" [+]Part of An Unearthly Child, Anthony Coburn, adapted from The Pilot Episode (Anthony Coburn), Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1963).) the Doctor believed that there was a reason for everything in the universe, (TV: "The Death of Doctor Who" [+]Part of The Chase, Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1965).) having left Gallifrey to find what "[kept] the balance between good and evil in [the] appalling universe", and why "good prevail[ed]" despite not being "a practical survival strategy" in the face of "evil". (TV: Twice Upon a Time [+]Steven Moffat, Doctor Who Christmas Special 2017 (BBC One, 2017).) He believed that evil "[didn't] follow principle", and that "the greatest evil [was] inaction", with rules "just [being] distractions". He thought that the best way to combat evils was with kindness and understanding. (POEM: A Simple Truth [+]Error: Code 2 - no data stored in variables, cache or SMW.) He thought that the smallest and most seemingly unimportant of details could lead to the "greatest discoveries". (TV: "The Dimensions of Time" [+]Part of The Space Museum, Glyn Jones, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1965).)

While he could disagree with the culture of the civilisations he visited, the Doctor did not see it as his place to judge and interfere with their business. (TV: "The Temple of Evil" [+]Part of The Aztecs, John Lucarotti, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC1, 1964).) Seeing that "fear [made] companions of [everyone]", (TV: "The Forest of Fear" [+]Part of An Unearthly Child, Anthony Coburn, adapted from The Pilot Episode (Anthony Coburn), Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1963).) the Doctor thought that forging alliances between factions was reward enough for his travels and efforts. (COMIC: Mission for Duh [+]The Dr Who Annual 1967 (Doctor Who annual, 1966).) He thought that bias based on appearance instead of intelligence was unwelcome, (TV: "The Exploding Planet" [+]Part of Galaxy 4, William Emms, Doctor Who season 3 (BBC1, 1965).) and defied the suggestion that progress was based on exploitation, branding it as "protracted murder". (TV: The Savages [+]Ian Stuart Black, Doctor Who season 3 (BBC1, 1966).)

He decreed that one should never "be a slave to time", or waste their time. (PROSE: Barbara in Wonderland [+]Rowan Ayers, Radio Times short stories (1964).)

He believed it was important to honour agreements made in an exchange. (COMIC: Challenge of the Piper [+]TVC comic stories (1965).)

He found slavery of humans to be "inhuman and wicked". (COMIC: The Trodos Tyranny [+]Roger Noel Cook, TVC comic stories (1966).)

He theorised that fate was on the side of justice. (COMIC: The Experimenters [+]Roger Noel Cook, TVC comic stories (1966).)

Seeing everyone as "adrift on a sea of random[ness]" caused from decisions taken by millions of strangers, the Doctor sought to "steer through the storm" in the "tempest of chaos" as he "resolve[d] to make good progress when the wind [was] behind [him]". (PROSE: Doctor Who and the Horror of Coal Hill [+]Error: Code 2 - no data stored in variables, cache or SMW.)

Due to his adventures, the Doctor was unable to "feel very much fear". (PROSE: The Sons of the Crab [+]The Dr Who Annual 1966 (Doctor Who annual, 1965).)

While the First Doctor learned to disapprove of violence, (TV: "A Holiday for the Doctor" [+]Part of The Gunfighters, Donald Cotton, Doctor Who season 3 (BBC1, 1966).) he was not averse to beating his opponents with his bare hands in self-defence, (TV: "All Roads Lead to Rome" [+]Part of The Romans, Dennis Spooner, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1965).) and could be dismissive towards casual violence. (PROSE: Tarnished Image [+]Guy Clapperton, Decalog 3: Consequences (Virgin Decalogs, 1996).) While he also disliked guns, (TV: "Don't Shoot the Pianist" [+]Part of The Gunfighters, Donald Cotton, Doctor Who season 3 (BBC1, 1966).) he noted that weapons were "handy little things" when used for protection, (TV: "Kidnap" [+]Part of The Sensorites, Peter R. Newman, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC1, 1964).) and even constructed a ray gun explicitly to help destroy Daleks. (COMIC: The Defeat of the Daleks [+]GASPS comics (Kenner, 1965).) He disapproved of revenge. (TV: "The Velvet Web" [+]Part of The Keys of Marinus, Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 1 ('"`UNIQ--poem-00000000-QINU`"', 1964).)

After seeing the callousness of the Daleks, (TV: Into the Dalek [+]Phil Ford and Steven Moffat, Doctor Who series 8 (BBC One, 2014).) the Doctor came to stand against "senseless, evil killing", (TV: "The Rescue" [+]Part of The Daleks, Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1963-1964)., "The Traitors" [+]Part of The Daleks' Master Plan, Terry Nation and Dennis Spooner, Doctor Who season 3 (BBC1, 1965-1966)., The Savages [+]Ian Stuart Black, Doctor Who season 3 (BBC1, 1966).) vowing to only take a life if his own was sufficiently threatened, (TV: "The Waking Ally" [+]Part of The Dalek Invasion of Earth, Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1964).) and was greatly disturbed when he saw needless bloodshed. (TV: "Horse of Destruction" [+]Part of The Myth Makers, Donald Cotton, Doctor Who season 3 (BBC1, 1965)., The Smugglers [+]Brian Hayles, Doctor Who season 4 (BBC1, 1966).) He thought that to sacrifice a life in the name of progress to be "nauseating" and "inhumane". (TV: The Savages [+]Ian Stuart Black, Doctor Who season 3 (BBC1, 1966).)

While he was willing to drop bombs on the Master Race's city, he knew to be careful not to hit the innocent prisoners. (COMIC: The Experimenters [+]Roger Noel Cook, TVC comic stories (1966).)

Because they could be caught off-guard by the unexpected, (COMIC: The Gyros Injustice [+]TVC comic stories (1965).) the First Doctor looked down on machines, as, while they could make laws, he did not believe they could preserve justice, seeing only living beings capable of doing so, which was his reasoning for why "man was [not] made to be controlled by machines". (TV: "The Keys of Marinus" [+]Part of The Keys of Marinus, Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 1 ('"`UNIQ--poem-00000000-QINU`"', 1964).) While he was defensive towards his TARDIS's capabilities, (TV: "Devil's Planet" [+]Part of The Daleks' Master Plan, Terry Nation and Dennis Spooner, Doctor Who season 3 (BBC1, 1965-1966).) he viewed travel dials as "perfectly acceptable method[s] of travel", as they were "very compact and very neat". (TV: "The Sea of Death" [+]Part of The Keys of Marinus, Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 1 ('"`UNIQ--poem-00000000-QINU`"', 1964).)

When it came to changing history, the Doctor knew he "[couldn't] stem the tide", instead focusing on not "being carried away with the flood", (TV: "Prisoners of Conciergerie" [+]Part of The Reign of Terror, Dennis Spooner, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC1, 1964).) preferring to "watch and wait" in the trust that time would sort itself out in the end. (AUDIO: Daybreak [+]Error: Code 2 - no data stored in variables, cache or SMW.) He stood against "time meddler[s]", (TV: "Checkmate" [+]Part of The Time Meddler, Dennis Spooner, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1965).) believing that not a single line in history should be altered, (TV: "The Temple of Evil" [+]Part of The Aztecs, John Lucarotti, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC1, 1964).) even if it meant sending someone to their death in a historical event, such as when he sent Anne Chaplet back to Paris before the St Bartholomew's Day massacre, though admitted there was a possibility she would survive. (TV: "Bell of Doom" [+]Part of The Massacre, John Lucarotti and Donald Tosh, Doctor Who season 3 (BBC1, 1966).) However, he would interfere if he believed the effect to time would be minuscule, (COMIC: Unnatural Selection [+]Scott & David Tipton, Prisoners of Time (IDW Publishing, 2013).) such as when he tried to convince King Richard to carry out a peace plan that was fated to fail. (TV: "The Warlords" [+]Part of The Crusade, David Whitaker, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1965).) After watching the Twelfth Doctor alter time slightly to save the lives of two men, the First Doctor took his future self's meddling to be a good indicator of the man he would eventually become. (TV: Twice Upon a Time [+]Steven Moffat, Doctor Who Christmas Special 2017 (BBC One, 2017).)

Comparing himself to an immigrant, (PROSE: Doctor Who and the Horror of Coal Hill [+]Error: Code 2 - no data stored in variables, cache or SMW.) the Doctor claimed he was "a scientist of no time or place", (COMIC: The Caterpillar Men [+]TV Comic Annual stories (1965).) being "a citizen of the universe, and a gentleman to boot". (TV: "The Feast of Steven" [+]Part of The Daleks' Master Plan, Terry Nation and Dennis Spooner, Doctor Who season 3 (BBC1, 1965-1966).) He once claimed to Vicki that he was "a wanderer and a survivor" in "the fourth dimension of space and time", as well as "a refugee from an ancient civilisation, cut off from [his] own people by aeons of time and universes far beyond human understanding". (PROSE: The Empire of Glass [+]Andy Lane, Virgin Missing Adventures (Virgin Books, 1995).) He once described himself as having "the directional instinct of a homing pigeon". (TV: "The Executioners" [+]Part of The Chase, Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1965).)

1st Doctor close

The Doctor chuckles at his two successors. (TV: The Three Doctors [+]Bob Baker and Dave Martin, Doctor Who season 10 (BBC1, 1972-1973).)

Reflecting on his successors, the First Doctor labelled his third and second incarnations as "a dandy and a clown", and joked when meeting them for the first time to battle Omega that they had yet to do anything. However, he did get along with them to a point, though got noticeably frustrated when the Second Doctor was slow to catch on. (TV: The Three Doctors [+]Bob Baker and Dave Martin, Doctor Who season 10 (BBC1, 1972-1973).) He also got on well with his fifth incarnation, admitting he did "quite well" after the Game of Rassilon and was reassured that his future was in "safe hands". (TV: The Five Doctors [+]Terrance Dicks, Doctor Who 20th Anniversary Special (Public Broadcasting Service, 1983).) While combating Adam Mitchell's Autons, the First Doctor associated himself with his second and seventh incarnations, combining with them to think of a solution to the situation. (COMIC: Endgame [+]Scott & David Tipton, Prisoners of Time (IDW Publishing, 2013).) However, he disliked his seventh incarnation, believing him to be "too manipulative". (PROSE: Five Card Draw [+]Todd Green, Short Trips: Zodiac (Short Trips, 2002).) Upon meeting his tenth incarnation, the First Doctor took a disliking to him and his behaviour. (AUDIO: Collision Course [+]Guy Adams, The Legacy of Time (Big Finish Productions, 2019).)

The First Doctor was confused by the mannerisms of his twelfth incarnation, such as his use of the sonic sunglasses, (TV: Twice Upon a Time [+]Steven Moffat, Doctor Who Christmas Special 2017 (BBC One, 2017).) and did not like him at first, leading to him making comments that he knew would wind him up, (PROSE: Twice Upon a Time [+]Paul Cornell, adapted from Twice Upon a Time (Steven Moffat), Target novelisations (Target Books, 2018).) but eventually confided in him his fears of regenerating, and came to respect him after seeing him save two men from death. (TV: Twice Upon a Time [+]Steven Moffat, Doctor Who Christmas Special 2017 (BBC One, 2017).)

Several of his future incarnations had a noticeably profound respect for the First Doctor, so much so that they dared not question his judgement, or argue in his presence, (TV: The Three Doctors [+]Bob Baker and Dave Martin, Doctor Who season 10 (BBC1, 1972-1973)., The Five Doctors [+]Terrance Dicks, Doctor Who 20th Anniversary Special (Public Broadcasting Service, 1983).) with the exception of the Eleventh Doctor, who looked upon his first incarnation with shame, branding him a "selfish idiot" and a coward, (COMIC: Hunters of the Burning Stone [+]Scott Gray, DWM Comics (2013).) with the Twelfth Doctor recognising that his past incarnations would let the First Doctor get away with whatever he wanted, but stated that he would not do the same, (PROSE: Twice Upon a Time [+]Paul Cornell, adapted from Twice Upon a Time (Steven Moffat), Target novelisations (Target Books, 2018).) though meeting his first incarnation still made him excited. (TV: Twice Upon a Time [+]Steven Moffat, Doctor Who Christmas Special 2017 (BBC One, 2017).)

The Eighth Doctor remembered the First Doctor as a "fierce old man". (PROSE: The Eight Doctors [+]Terrance Dicks, BBC Eighth Doctor Adventures (BBC Books, 1997).) The Twelfth Doctor considered his first incarnation to have been "eccentric, a bit mad, [and] rude to people," (TV: Hell Bent [+]Steven Moffat, Doctor Who series 9 (BBC One, 2015).) and was rather shocked at some of his mannerisms, particularly his lack of political correctness (TV: Twice Upon a Time [+]Steven Moffat, Doctor Who Christmas Special 2017 (BBC One, 2017).) that was deliberately exaggerated by the First Doctor to make his future incarnation feel uncomfortable due to his initial dislike of him. (PROSE: Twice Upon a Time [+]Paul Cornell, adapted from Twice Upon a Time (Steven Moffat), Target novelisations (Target Books, 2018).) The Fourteenth Doctor, while reflecting upon the First Doctor's first meeting with the Toymaker, told Donna Noble that when he was young, the Doctor was "so sure of myself" and as a result, he made a terrible mistake. (TV: The Giggle [+]Russell T Davies, Doctor Who 2023 specials (BBC One and Disney+, 2023).)

The First Doctor's strongest relationship was with his granddaughter, Susan Foreman, with him always putting her wellbeing first, (TV: "The Forest of Fear" [+]Part of An Unearthly Child, Anthony Coburn, adapted from The Pilot Episode (Anthony Coburn), Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1963)., "The Brink of Disaster" [+]Part of The Edge of Destruction, David Whitaker, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1964).) even if he could come across as condescending towards her, refusing to tolerate her ideas and treating her like a child, (TV: "An Unearthly Child" [+]Part of An Unearthly Child, Anthony Coburn, adapted from The Pilot Episode (Anthony Coburn), Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1963)., "The Survivors" [+]Part of The Daleks, Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1963-1964)., "Hidden Danger" [+]Part of The Sensorites, Peter R. Newman, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC1, 1964)., "World's End" [+]Part of The Dalek Invasion of Earth, Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1964).) though he appreciated her faith in him highly. (TV: "The Expedition" [+]Part of The Daleks, Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1963-1964).) His last act of paternity towards Susan was to leave her in the 22nd century with David Campbell, a freedom fighter she had fallen in love with, to start her own life. (TV: "Flashpoint" [+]Part of The Dalek Invasion of Earth, Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1964).)

While visiting 15th century Tenochtitlan, the Doctor became attracted to an elderly Aztec woman named Cameca, admiring her for being "intelligent and gentle". (TV: "The Temple of Evil" [+]Part of The Aztecs, John Lucarotti, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC1, 1964).) While he was shocked to be accidently engaged to her due to misunderstanding an Aztec custom, (TV: "The Bride of Sacrifice" [+]Part of The Aztecs, John Lucarotti, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC1, 1964).) when the time came for him to leave, he could not bring himself to depart without the brooch she had gifted to him. (TV: "The Day of Darkness" [+]Part of The Aztecs, John Lucarotti, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC1, 1964).)

The Doctor was protective of youngsters, being morally outraged when he found the Pied Piper keeping children away from their parents, (COMIC: Challenge of the Piper [+]TVC comic stories (1965).) and helping Santa Claus build model TARDISes so as not to disappoint the children who has asked for one for Christmas. (COMIC: A Christmas Story [+]Bill Mevin, TVC comic stories (Polystyle Publications, Ltd., 1965-1966).)

The First Doctor had a low opinion of the Master, dismissing him as a "charlatan" and taking great pleasure in outsmarting him. (AUDIO: The Destination Wars [+]Matt Fitton, The First Doctor Adventures: Volume One (The First Doctor Adventures, Big Finish Productions, 2017).)

While Susan once described her grandfather as being a "great man", (AUDIO: Domain of the Voord [+]Error: Code 2 - no data stored in variables, cache or SMW.) the Doctor considered himself to be very dangerous when roused. Geoffrey Chaucer, meanwhile, described the Doctor as being "a man of rare wit and temper, a philosopher." (AUDIO: The Doctor's Tale [+]Marc Platt, The Early Adventures (Big Finish Productions, 2014).) Ian Chesterton once described the First Doctor as being "basically good, but bad-tempered, [and] mischievous" and also voiced that he "sometimes [didn't] trust him". (PROSE: Venusian Lullaby [+]Paul Leonard, Virgin Missing Adventures (Virgin Books, 1994).) Dodo Chaplet implied that she thought the First Doctor to be "condescending, arrogant, smug and irritating". (PROSE: Tarnished Image [+]Guy Clapperton, Decalog 3: Consequences (Virgin Decalogs, 1996).) Steven Taylor recalled the Doctor as being "a wily, old character". (TV: The Time Meddler [+]Phil Ford, Tales of the TARDIS tales of the tardis (BBC iPlayer, 2023).)

Princess Joanna told the Doctor that "there [was] something new in [him], [and] yet something older than the sky itself." (TV: "The Wheel of Fortune" [+]Part of The Crusade, David Whitaker, Doctor Who season 2 (BBC1, 1965).) When recalling her encounter with the First Doctor to Mortimus, Ace described him as "sweet". (PROSE: No Future [+]Paul Cornell, Virgin New Adventures (Virgin Books, 1994).) When the Eighth Doctor had a tarot card reading, the First Doctor was identified as "the Hierophant". (PROSE: The City of the Dead [+]Lloyd Rose, BBC Eighth Doctor Adventures (BBC Books, 2001).)

While the Tremas Master found him admirable for his intelligence, he also admitted that the First Doctor was a "bore", (GAME: Destiny of the Doctors [+]Hannah Redler, Gary Russell, Terrance Dicks and Andy Russell, BBC Multimedia (1997).) with Adam Mitchell identifying the First Doctor as the "educator" in comparison to his other incarnations. (COMIC: Unnatural Selection [+]Scott & David Tipton, Prisoners of Time (IDW Publishing, 2013).)

As he felt his first regeneration nearing, the Doctor hoped that his successor would be a better man than he was. However, he was fearful of the regeneration, knowing that it would change him beyond recognition. (PROSE: The Man in the Velvet Mask [+]Daniel O'Mahony, Virgin Missing Adventures (Virgin Books, 1996).) Though he continued to be afraid of the change, (PROSE: Ten Little Aliens [+]Stephen Cole, BBC Past Doctor Adventures (BBC Books, 2002).) the Doctor put on a brave face to comfort Polly Wright while dying as a prisoner of the Cybermen. After Ben rescued them, the Doctor hurryingly made his way back to the TARDIS, (TV: The Tenth Planet [+]Kit Pedler and Gerry Davis, Doctor Who season 4 (BBC1, 1966).) and became determined to fight the regeneration, branding "the whole thing" as "ridiculous". (TV: The Doctor Falls [+]Steven Moffat, Doctor Who series 10 (BBC One, 2017).) His fear of regenerating grew during an encounter with his twelfth incarnation, where he learned he would become known as "the Doctor of War" to the Testimony, and saw recordings of the conflicts his future selves would participate in. However, after witnessing the Twelfth Doctor alter time to spare two lives on a battlefield, the First Doctor understood what he would truly become, and decided to return to the South Pole to regenerate, (TV: Twice Upon a Time [+]Steven Moffat, Doctor Who Christmas Special 2017 (BBC One, 2017).) using the last of his strength to unlock the door for Ben and Polly. (TV: The Tenth Planet [+]Kit Pedler and Gerry Davis, Doctor Who season 4 (BBC1, 1966).)

Habits and quirks[]

The First Doctor would frequently end his sentences with a questioning hum, something which was picked up by those that acquired elements of his personality, such as Jano (TV: The Savages [+]Ian Stuart Black, Doctor Who season 3 (BBC1, 1966).) and the newly-regenerated Fifth Doctor. (TV: Castrovalva [+]Christopher H. Bidmead, Doctor Who season 19 (BBC1, 1982).) He also made a habit of putting his fingers to his lips when thinking, an impulse that was also subconsciously adopted by Jano when he absorbed a piece of the Doctor's consciences. (TV: The Savages [+]Ian Stuart Black, Doctor Who season 3 (BBC1, 1966).)

The First Doctor polluted his speech with unpredictable stuttering (TV: "The Ambush" [+]Part of The Daleks, Terry Nation, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1963-1964)., "The Edge of Destruction" [+]Part of The Edge of Destruction, David Whitaker, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1964)., "The Brink of Disaster" [+]Part of The Edge of Destruction, David Whitaker, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC tv, 1964)., "The Temple of Evil" [+]Part of The Aztecs, John Lucarotti, Doctor Who season 1 (BBC1, 1964)., "The Unwilling Warriors" [+]Part of The Sensorites, Peter R.
