2008-05-09 19:51:38 DarthSkeptical Notes The comic First Doctor appeared to have different familial relationships than the televised one. At least initially, he had two grandchildren, named John and Gillian. For the entirety of his initial TV Comic run, no mention was ever made of Susan, his televised granddaughter.

When he returned to original comics in the pages of Doctor Who Magazine and its various offshoots, his companions were always the ones he had on TV. An Eighth Doctor comic strip, as well as a tie-in novel, later seemed to suggest that John and Gillian (along with all the TV Comic adventures) may have only been a dream.


At right are a series of representative panels from across the history of the character's use.

The first panel is from one of his very earliest appearances, drawn by Doctor Who's second comic artist, Bill Mevin. The second comes from his middle years, and features the sketchier art of John Canning. The third comes from a more contemporary usage by Marvel UK, drawn by Colin Andrew.

Who is Dr. Who?
The TV Comic version of the First Doctor was often referred to as "Dr. Who". To modern fans of the show, this might seem a trifle, well, weird. However, it must be remembered that at this point in the show's history, it wasn't yet clear what else to call him. The only thing to go by were the end credits on television, which did call the character, "Dr. Who".

2006-11-20 15:51:56 DarthSkeptical Bio The William Hartnell original from the 1963 series of Doctor Who. Crotchety, bad-tempered and deeply illogical. As portrayed on the television series, he took a hard line against interfering with the time line--but curiously always seemed to have an, um, interesting view of non-intervention on his many travels back to Earth's past.

The comic version of the character, especially in those tales that originated in TV Comic was rarely faced with these sorts of historical dilemmas, however. Oddly, the comic First Doctor was almost always in adventures that seemed more suited to his successor. Yes, sure, the TV First Doctor did occasionally trip the space fantastic, but it's the TV Second Doctor that gained real notoreity for doing that. In comics, though, the First Doctor was almost always anywhere but the Earth.
