Re: 1st image of David Bradley as William Hartnell

Well that's it really, it's down to the performance, if he can sell it it wouldn't matter if he had green hair.

diankra raises a good point though, at the end of the day Bradley isn't playing the 1st Doctor, he's playing Hartnell playing the 1st Doctor!

And to further quibble, he should be playing Hartnell playing The Doctor not the 1st Doctor, the character as he played is unique in that regard.

Little side note for British viewers: Brian Cox was on the Daily Politics this afternoon (Tuesday 1226th Feb, rpt at midnight on BBC Parliament), so you can take a look at how good a match he is for Sydney Newman with his 60s haircut and moustache.

Ah, but when I met Newman after an NFT lecture he was 20 years older too! :-)

He was 46 in 1963, and looked it. Brian Cox is 66. Still, they've clearly gone for the best man for the role.
