The First Doctor was the original incarnation of the Doctor's first regeneration cycle. He initially approached humans and otherwise suspicious appearing persons with a great sense of skepticism. Originally, stubborn, slightly pompous and occasionally selfish, the Doctor, over the course of his travels began to mellow into a more approachable, grandfatherly figure to all whom travelled with him. He originally portrayed himself to be omniscient with a better grasp of the way everything works than everybody else, and his egocentric and sometimes witless nature occasionally resulted in him putting himself and his companions at risk, but these qualities faded over time and he became and more affectionate and kind.

Overview Edit

The First Doctor began by fleeing his home planet, Gallifrey, in a Type 40 TARDIS he commandeered for himself and eventually found himself residing in 20th century London with his granddaughter, Susan, landing 'his' TARDIS in a junkyard. He disapproved of Susan going to Coal Hill School and eventually left London behind, beginning his travels anew with Susan and her two schoolteachers, Ian Chesterton and Barbara Wright, whom he kidnapped in his abrupt departure from London in 1963 and spent two years trying to return home.

After leaving Susan to live her own life in the 22nd century with a man with whom she'd fallen in love, the Doctor met young orphan, Vicki Pallister, on the planet Dido and she joined him, Ian and Barbara on their travels. The trio travelled together until they became involved in an extravagant chase throughout time and space, orchestrated by the Daleks in their own time/space machine. When the Daleks had been defeated, Ian and Barbara finally returned home in the Dalek's machine, whilst their place was soon taken up by stranded pilot, Steven Taylor, whom they all met on Mechanus.

Vicki departed the TARDIS to marry a man she'd met in ancient Troy, while Steven remained with the Doctor. The pair of them had a brief falling out of the deaths of two companions they had made in a lengthy adventure with the Daleks, Katarina and Sara Kingdom, and the Doctor's apprehension to prevent the events of the massacre in Paris, 1572 and left the TARDIS, but quickly returned and found himself travelling with Dodo Chaplet. Steven, eventually, did leave the TARDIS to help lead a civilisation they had discovered. After a traumatic experience of brainwashing by WOTAN, Dodo returned home, leaving a not for the Doctor and he was, unwittingly, accompanied by stowaways Ben Jackson and Polly Wright.

When the TARDIS materialised in the South Pole, the Doctor, Ben and Polly were able to stop a plot orchestrated by the Cybermen, but it was a battle which took a heavy physical strain on the Doctor's body. He wandered across the snowy wastelands, his body preparing to regenerate for the very first time, and refused to allow the change, being afraid of the process. He discovered a future incarnation of himself, attempting to do the same thing and, after a final adventure with his future self, returned to the South Pole in his TARDIS, collapsing to the floor after letting Ben and Polly inside and he finally, willingly, regenerates into a brand-new, second incarnation.
