Well, the first Doctor presumably aged till he was the 70(by human standards)-ish man we first saw.
Hartnell, in fact, was only 55 when the series began. He hadn't aged well. (Although the long white wig made him look older.)
Yes, I know, but he played older - at least until his health meant too much of it wasn't playing. And back in the 70s things like the Doctor Who Monster Book always described him as a septuagenarian, so that stuck!
