Re: First Doctor - character arc?

As David Tenant put it, the irony is that the First Doctor seems least "doctorish" to modern viewers.

People tend to forget what a jerk and an anti-hero he started out as.

But yes, Hartnell's Doctor mellows out a lot in the later stories, and becomes more recognizably "doctorish."

The Sixth Doctor borrows a lot from the First, with the abrasiveness, arrogance, and the way they sometimes treated their companions.
