The Second Doctor was the second incarnation of the Time Lord known as the Doctor. Though outwardly warm, bumbling, and somewhat clownish, this version of the Doctor had a darker, more cunning aspect to his personality one which he usually kept hidden in order to better carry out his plans.

He travelled with a number of companions. He had several adventures with his previous self's last assistants, Ben Jackson and Polly Wright, before adding Highland Scot Jamie McCrimmon to the mix. After a while, Ben and Polly left, to be replaced by Victoria Waterfield, a woman orphaned by the Daleks. In time, she too left, and he made a new friend in the mentally gifted Zoe Heriot. At some point he also travelled with his grandchildren, John and Gillian.

His adventures came to an end when he at last called on his people for help with the evil machinations of the War Lord. Though the Time Lords did indeed render assistance, they also condemned him to exile on Earth and a new body. The Celestial Intervention Agency was able to stay the execution of this sentence for a while. During these later years of his life, the Second Doctor variously carried out covert operations for the CIA and lived in luxury and fame in the heart of 1960s London. Eventually, though, Time Lord justice reasserted itself, and the Doctor was indeed forced to regenerate into his third body.

Troughton did an amazing job in this. Really brought his character back. The banter (I hate that word) between himself and Three was great to watch.

I think he very nearly stole the show. There's never a bad performance from PT and he is always fantastic as the Doctor. He really stand out amongst them.

I agree. He isn't my favourite Doctor but he never gives me anything to complain about and he was excellent in this.

I agree.  Although it was theoretically a Third Doctor story, he got a lot of the best bits and made the most of them.

He absolutely nailed this. After a few years out of the role he just slipped straight back into it and completely ran away with the script. As always, an outstanding performance from Troughton

I agree. Though that's usually case regardless of what story he is in.
