Re: First Doctor - character arc?

The thing that people forget is that Ian and Barbara were the main characters in the very early days of the series, not the Doctor; which allowed him to be a character who'd do things like contemplate bashing a caveman's skull in.

He only really becomes "The Doctor" as we think of the character in 'The Sensorites', which was the first story where he chooses to become involved in a situation because it's the right thing to do.
