35 years earlier, Henry had also portrayed a parody version of the Doctor in a sketch on The Lenny Henry Show. Produced in 1986, this sketch predated the departure of Colin Baker, and saw Henry play the newly reincarnated "Seventh Doctor," making him the first Black actor to portray the Doctor.
He also appeared as himself, alongside Doctor Who elements, in the 2011 BBC Christmas ident.
