The First Doctor was the first incarnation of the Time Lord known as the Doctor. Most accounts of him were drawn from close to the end of his life.

Initially, he had as companions his granddaughter Susan Foreman and her kidnapped teachers, Ian Chesterton and Barbara Wright. He bade Susan farewell to let her live a happier life with a man with whom she had fallen in love. Later, during a confrontation with the Daleks, the Doctor used one of their time capsules to return Ian and Barbara to their proper time - something he had been unable to manage with the TARDIS.

After Susan's departure, the Doctor gained a new companion in Vicki Pallister. She reminded him of Susan and the Doctor saw her as a surrogate to fill her spot in his travels with Ian and Barbara. Vicki left the Doctor's company, feeling her time with him was over and she needed to move on.

Soon after the departure of Ian and Barbara, the Doctor gained a new companion in Steven Taylor, with whom he had a relatively uneasy relationship. Steven was bitter towards him, blaming him for the deaths of Katarina and Sara Kingdom. However, the Doctor was forgiven and companion Dodo Chaplet joined them on their travels.

Ultimately, Dodo became injured in an adventure and decided to remain home in her own time, while Steven decided to stay and help a civilisation they had encountered.

Right before his battle with the Cybermen of Mondas, the Doctor had gained two new companions in Ben Jackson and Polly Wright, to whom he was much more kind to prevent them from leaving as Steven had.

He met his end after battling the Cybermen for the first time on Earth. He was forced to regenerate into his second body from exhaustion and a loss of strength to maintain his ancient body.

Now and then, every once in a very long while, every day in a million days, when the wind stands fair and The Doctor comes to call, everybody lives.

It's such a shame that his involvement is so limited in this story, and he is so obviously frail and ill when he is on screen. He is an amazing Doctor, it's just a shame that wasn't properly represented.

It's obvious that he wasn't well, but to not have him would have been an outrage. His involvement was limited and his performance wasn't spectacular but it was awesome to have him involved anyway.

I agree.  Just having him there made it special, and he did get a classic line.

Circular logic will only make you dizzy, Doctor

Probably one of the most famous of the classic run.

It would have been really nice to have had more of Hartnell in this story, though with his health it would have been so easy for them to not have him at all, so I think we were really lucky with what we got.

I agree. Between that and his goodbye speech to Susan he didn't do too badly. I can't think of two more famous quotes from the classics. Except maybe 'Three rounds rapid' and 'Reverse the polarity'

It would have been so awesome to have had more of the First Doctor in this. Seeing him running around having an adventure in colour would have been great. It's such a shame his health was so poor. He wasn't even particularly old.
