Re: First Doctor - character arc?

But the surviving Hartnells are largely from his first two seasons (14/17 stories, and at least half of two more). There's less of the later, more heroic though more silly Doctor of season three (3/12, plus one almost complete story, and bits from three more).
So we tend to see the harsher early portrayal as definitive... but there's a lot of Troughton/Tom in later Hartnell.

The thing that people forget is that Ian and Barbara were the main characters in the very early days of the series, not the Doctor; which allowed him to be a character who'd do things like contemplate bashing a caveman's skull in.
...or kill Marco Polo if he doesn't return the Tardis key...

Re: First Doctor - character arc?

Well...I´m watching the second serial right now (I finished the third episode yesterday), and I think I can already see him changing slightly. He´s actually working together with the others (more or less) for a change. He does seem a bit less sinister this time.
