Re: First Doctor - character arc?
I wonder if we might have an overall different opinion of the First Doctor if more episodes had survived. We have a few complete episodes but just bits and pieces of others...
Eh, we've got 17 out of 29 stories complete. One that has been completed with Animation (So, 18 complete altogether out of 29), and another that is only missing 1 episode which is being animated now, that's much better than what we have for Troughton, and about 2/3 of the overall quantity of stories made for Hartnell.
Which is sad, because Troughton is definitely the one who set the tone of the Doctor as he's been since.
"Spock...?" Kirk said, whispering.
"I am... most pleased to see again, Captain" Spock formally replied.
McCoy shook his head in disgust. "Oh, for crying out loud, Spock. Its been eighty years!"
"Seventy eight point four years, Doctor."
