Re: First Doctor - character arc?

Another missing example of the first Doctor being the Doctor we know is The Smugglers, right at his end: he just treats 17th century Cornwall as a fun place to look around, is delighted when it gives him a mystery to solve, but when he could just get out, he goes back and puts himself in danger to prevent a massacre.
Troughton is the first Doctor who is always the meddling hero we know, but Hartnell has become it well before his end.
