The tv series itself had barely established that the Doctor was alien at this point.
Huh? The Doctor stated quite clearly in An Unearthly Child he was from another planet.
That doesn't mean that he's not an advanced human from a future civilization or colony world. The Doctor refers to himself as a human being in "The Savages" for example, and in "The Evil of the Daleks", it's implied that the Doctor has become more than human only by virtue of his extensive time travelling. The whole Time Lord thing wasn't established until later.
