TCM just showed the 1959 Peter Sellers film The Mouse that Roared, in which William Hartnell had a sizeable supporting role. And wouldn't you know it, his character was basically a drill sergeant, the sort of role he was typecast in before the Doctor. Interesting to get to see an example of that phase of Hartnell's career, but I can certainly see why he felt limited by it.
You can see him in a slightly different role from 1960 - here:
