Reg Cranfield played the policeman seen during the opening credits of "The Pilot Episode" and An Unearthly Child. (DWMS Summer 1994) Some sources, such as The Complete History volume 1, credit the role to Fred Rawlings, despite the fact that Cranfield is listed as playing the part in the production paperwork for both versions of the first Doctor Who television story. Either these sources are mistaken or Rawlings played the part in one of the unused versions.
Cranfield, therefore, has the unique distinction of being the very first actor to appear on Doctor Who; he later went on to appear in more than a half-dozen other Doctor Who stories into the 1970s.
