Bio:
As far as is known from the televised Doctor Who, he is one of the two original human companions of the Doctor. He was a science teacher at London's Coal Hill School. His colleague, history teacher Barbara Wright, suspected something amiss with their pupil, Susan, and tried to force a parent-teacher conference with Susan's grandfather. Susan's address on file with the school secretary led Barbara to a junkyard, so Barbara asked Ian to accompany her one night to see if Susan would indeed show up at this address.

She did.

Curious, the pair of teachers entered the junkyard shortly thereafter, and chanced upon the Doctor and his TARDIS. Once inside the machine, though, the Doctor refused to let them go, fearing that they would go back to the authorities, compromising the Doctor's life on Earth. So he essentially kidnapped the duo into traveling with he and his granddaughter.

Eventually, they would be returned to London of the Sixties, but by that time they were trusted allies of the Doctor.

For his part, Ian was initially extremely protective of Barbara and Susan and deeply suspicious of the Doctor. This mellowed over time, and he became generally the "knight protector" of the whole TARDIS crew—whoever it might have been at the time. He had a good analytical mind, because of his science background, and was a "practical athlete". He could generally handle himself well in physical contests, but he wasn't unusually gifted. Still, the wide range of things he could do with competence ranged from sword fighting to survivalist hiking to horseback riding—making him a very useful "all-rounder".

Notes:
Ian has had, to date, only one serious comic appearance; although he has also been seen in a couple of parodic stories.
