This topic is to talk about The Doctor as a character, his history, his backstory. I love this description of him, I was going to transcribe it but then thought, I'll let it speak for itself (first 25 seconds):

This is great, thanks for starting the topic @SilverStormm


I have always wondered, did DW start out as a comic book and then was adapted to TV?  I watched An Adventure in Space and Time and I got a lot of the back story with that, but if they mentioned this, I don't remember.

I like all of this about him, the start and the end shows things about his personality.


It's also one of my favourite episodes. I haven't watched the original series, it makes me wonder how he has changed throughout his life and how his experiences through the years has influenced and changed him

It was created just for the BBC as a kid's show. There was no original source material. 


So that is why it is so important to get to know the Doctor from the very first story arc.  To get a feel for him and what made him into what we see of him today.


I haven't watched ALL of Classic Who, but I did make myself watch a bit of every doctor to get my own feel of how he has grown. 


I personally think it's all kinds of awesome that this is 50 years old and it's still going strong.  With the basic premise.  Kudos to the creators!
