No, to the OP

Personally I don't think it's very respectful to actors to insist on seeing them as one character when they're trying to create a different one. Many actors resent being typecast as just one role, because the whole goal of the craft (and, often, a necessary part of making a living at it) is to be capable of transforming oneself into multiple different characters. Especially for a chameleonic character actor like Troughton, the kind of performer who prides himself on disappearing into a character, equating him with only a single role is like calling him a failure at the very thing his career and reputation are built upon.
This.
