1965 - 1966

Portrayed by; Peter Cushing (1913 - 1994)

Dr. Who is a gentle, grandfatherly figure, naturally curious and sometimes absent-minded, but at the same time is not afraid to fight for justice. He is shown to have a keen (and somewhat juvenile) sense of humour, and a strong sense of adventure with a will of iron and very strong morals.

Unlike the Doctor in the television series, he is a human being, not a Time Lord, whose surname actually and unambiguously is "Who". Thus, he is not called "the Doctor" by others. Cushing's character is an eccentric inventor who claims to have created TARDIS.

Appeared in:

Doctor Who and the Daleks (based upon the televised serial The Daleks)
Daleks' Invasion Earth: 2150 A.D. (based upon the televised serial The Dalek Invasion of Earth)

I felt I'd include this for people who are new to the Classic Series, as there's sometimes a bit of confusion regarding the films & First Doctor.

Also, Peter Cushing is a legend.

I really didnt enjoy the films. Probably because I sat there watching them rocking back and forth in a frenzy repeating 'this isn't right' over and over until they ended. Perhaps a rewatch is in order Tongue

I've never seen either of the movies. I've read about them and I didnt like the way the characters sounded. Wasn't Bernard Cribbins in one of them?

He was indeed.
He played policeman Tom Campbell in the second film.

I don't especially like the films, although Peter Cushing was as excellent as ever.  I prefer the second one, partly because I thought Bernard Cribbens slotted in much better than Roy Castle as the semi-comic character.  Roy Castle was just being silly all the time, whereas Cribbens had a comedy scene or two, but played the character pretty well the rest of the time.  Also (without giving spoilers) there's one scene in the first film I can't forgive them for copping out on, compared with the incredibly moving version in the original.

These movies confused me greatly as a neophyte to classic Who. I couldn't understand why they shared the titles of first Doctor stories. I think I merged The Daleks together. I don't consider these movies canon despite the fact that the books and audios and Shalka are for me.
