Though outwardly warm, bumbling, and clownish, the Second Doctor also had a darker, more cunning aspect to his personality — one which he usually kept hidden in order to carry out his plans. Regenerating when his first incarnation gave in to old age and fatigue following his fight with the Cybermen, this new incarnation was the product of the Doctor's first regeneration.

He travelled with a number of companions, starting with his previous incarnation's last companions, Ben Jackson and Polly Wright, before adding Highland Scot Jamie McCrimmon to the TARDIS. 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 the Doctor 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 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 for breaking their non-interference policy many times over. The Celestial Intervention Agency was able to stay the execution of this sentence for a while in exchange for the Doctor providing his services to them. 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.

Biography Edit

Foreshadowing Edit

After his struggle with the Celestial Toymaker, the Doctor began to feel he was nearing the end of his first life, becoming increasingly unwell, (PROSE: The Man in the Velvet Mask) and was afraid of the change. (PROSE: Ten Little Aliens)

Post-regeneration Edit

Birth of the Second Doctor

The Second Doctor emerges from the First Doctor's regeneration. (TV: The Tenth Planet)

After having the "stuffing knocked out of him" fighting the Cybermen in Antarctica, (COMIC: Blood and Ice) the Doctor regenerated on the floor of his TARDIS, his appearance changing into that of a much younger man. (TV: The Tenth Planet) After the regeneration, which he referred to it as a "renewal", was completed, the new Doctor found himself suspected as an impostor by Ben, this being due to the Doctor failing to inform his companions of the Time Lord's ability to regenerate, while Polly was more ready to believe that he was the same Doctor.

Power of the Daleks

The Doctor shortly after his first regeneration. (TV: The Power of the Daleks)

Before he had time to recuperate, the TARDIS took the Doctor, Ben and Polly to Vulcan, where the Doctor witnessed the murder of an Earth examiner sent to check on the human colony. Posing as the examiner, the Doctor tried to stop the colony's scientist, Lesterson, from reactivating three captured Daleks, but failed. He was sceptical when the Dalek claimed to be the colony's servant and desperately tried to convince the humans that the Daleks were using their colony to produce new Daleks. By the time Lesterson uncovered the truth, it was too late: Thousands of Daleks, now showing their true colours, attacked the colony and killed many colonists. Despite knowing it was a losing battle, the Doctor, Ben and Polly remained to fight alongside the colonists, with the Doctor destroying his foes by using their power against them, and exposing secruity head Bragen as the killer of the examiner. (TV: The Power of the Daleks)

Immediately after leaving Vulcan, he, Ben and Polly briefly encountered a "ghost" in the TARDIS, while the Doctor was also avoiding Polly's questions about possibly meeting the Daleks again, (AUDIO: The Light at the End) as he was mourning the loss of his signet ring, until he decided it was replaceable. (COMIC: The Chameleon Factor)

Soon after regenerating, the Doctor met Lilith on Kirith, when the Timewyrm had been recuperating in his mind since his regeneration. However, the Timewyrm passed from the Doctor to Lilith, leading to trouble for the Doctor in the future. (PROSE: Timewyrm: Apocalypse)

(PROSE: Only a Matter of Time)

The Doctor took Ben and Polly the idyllic planet Harmony. However, he learnt the population were harvesting visitors for food as the planet's animals had all died out. Barely escaping with his life, the Doctor collected his companions and fled the TARDIS, not telling Ben and Polly about his gruesome discovery. (PROSE: Planet of Bones)

The Doctor, Ben and Polly next travelled to the "planet of Light", before an eclipse that plunged the planet into darkness began. Teaming up with an ancient resident called Igor, the Doctor helped the citizens overcome their fear of the dark, and parked the TARDIS in orbit as the planet of light fell into darkness. (PROSE: World Without Night)

While Victoria stayed behind with him, Pavo sent the Doctor on a mission to Space Station Camera, but they fled when they saw the Station attacked by Sontarans. After visiting the City of Owls and helping the people of McKenzie, the Doctor and Jamie returned to the ship they departed from before they actually first arrived on the ship, and found the real Pavo, helping her to defeat the Monk, after which Pavo agreed not to arrest the Doctor, but erased the Doctor and his friends' memory of the event nontheless. (AUDIO: The Black Hole)

The Doctor befriended Stuart Mallory, a distinguished naturalist, with whom he and his two companions later took to dinner. (PROSE: The Last Emperor)

The Doctor visited East Ridge, where he helped a farmer called Thomas Watson to protect his family's farm from ruthless New York businessman, John Glassman, turning the whole town against the Watsons.

They encountered the war-like Veltrochni and Koschei, an old friend of the Doctor's from Gallifrey, travelling with Ailla. However, the temptation posed by the Darkheart device proved too much for Koschei, and the revelation that his companion Ailla was a spy destroyed the last traces of good in him, and he became the Master. (PROSE: The Dark Path)

After the Doctor successfully convinced John and Gillian to stay on Zebadee, the TARDIS brought him to a Scottish castle in 1967, where the Doctor found the Quarks preparing to launch an invasion. Having been spotted, the Doctor retreated into the castle, where he was saved from a Quark by Jamie, who had come to investigate the flying saucer in the castle. Coming up with a plan, the Doctor and Jamie commandeered the flying saucer and opened fire on the Quark invasion force, causing the Quarks to destroy themselves in the confusion.

While he repaired the TARDIS' time rotor, the Doctor sent Jamie out to find gold, mercury and Zeiton-7. When he returned, Jamie had been given the Necronomicon by the Master, which transported the Doctor and Jamie to the Great Desolation after the Doctor handled it. There, the duo discovered that the Master had been working with the Archon, who wanted to seize a TARDIS to attack the Time Lords. After they repaired the TARDIS, the Doctor defeated the Archon by playing his recorder whilst Jamie played the bagpipes, which confused and destroyed them. (PROSE: The Nameless City)

Landing on Gano after a war on the planet was lost, the Doctor and Jamie were attacked by giant wasps, but were able to evade them in a trench. Utilising a discarded anti-aircraft gun, they were able to shoot down a wasp, until the swarm changed formation and tackled the gun over, but exposed an underground city to the Doctor and Jamie in the process. Escaping into the city, the duo were confronted by the Quarks, but were able to avoid them using some old scooters, until they came upon a dead end. However, the wasps arrived to attack the Quarks and the battle between them enabled the Doctor and Jamie to make a break for the exit. After a close encounter with a wasp near the exit, which resulted the creature's demise, the Doctor and Jamie made it to the TARDIS and left. (COMIC: The Killer Wasps)


The Doctor prepares to use dynamite. (COMIC: Ice Cap Terror)

After the TARDIS was forced to materialise by an explosion in 1970 Antarctica, the Doctor and Jamie discovered that aliens were threatening to detonate explosions to throw Earth off its axis. After evading a group of Ice Apes, the Doctor and Jamie followed the aliens' craft down a cave, and, after using dynamite to damage the craft, maneuvered the aliens into a fight with the Ice Apes.

When the TARDIS landed in the Time Temple, the Doctor and Jamie were greeted by Father Time, who decided they needed to be punished for their time travel, and rendered them unconscious. The Doctor awoke to find himself tied to a pendulum lowing him into boiling oil, and Jamie sealed within a giant hour glass. Noticing a loose bolt, the Doctor increased the strain of the pendulum until it collapsed on itself, and also landed on the hour glass, freeing Jamie as well. With Father Time after them, the Doctor took shelter in a cuckoo clock, but Father Time cornered him there. The Doctor was saved by Jamie's intervention, but broke his ankle in the process. Whilst Father Time summoned robots after them, the Doctor was defended by Jamie, who inadvertently damaged the robots enough to set them on Father Time, giving him and the Doctor the chance to escape the Time Temple. (COMIC: Father Time)


The Doctor completes his work on Martha. (COMIC: Martha the Mechanical Housemaid)

After the Doctor completed constructing a mechanical housemaid named Martha, the TARDIS landed in 1971 New York City, where the Doctor and Jamie went to see C. G. Slattery of the Inventions International Company, who was impressed enough with Martha to put the Doctor on nation-wide television to sell hundreds of thousands of Marthas. After a few weeks of successful business, however, the Marthas were taken over by the Quarks to be used as an invasion force. Though the Doctor was able to bring the Marthas back under his control, the Quarks soon arrived to take New York City by force, but the Doctor was able to turn the Marthas savage again to fight back against the Quarks. When the Quarks finally retreated, the Doctor was hailed as a hero, and even nominated for President of the United States. (COMIC: Martha the Mechanical Housemaid)

Zoe joins the duo Edit

The Doctor and Jamie fought the Cybermen on Space Station W3 and one of the space station's crew, scientist Zoe Heriot, stowed away aboard the TARDIS. The Doctor tried to dissuade her by using a thought scanner to show her how he ended the Daleks, (TV: The Wheel in Space) but the Daleks frighten her more than he had anticipated, and he apologetically conceded that the TARDIS could use another genius aboard.

(PROSE: Future Imperfect) The Doctor was time-scooped to his TARDIS in the future, where he reunited with the Brigadier and his other UNIT friends. He also encountered Jo Grant, a future travelling companion, and met with his third self. Ultimately, the two incarnations of the Doctor had difficulties working with each other but were able to work together when they and their UNIT friends were transported to an antimatter universe. The two Doctors despite their differences, successfully thwarted Omega's escape — but the price was the loss of his recorder. After this, the Doctor said his farewells to his future self and was returned to his rightful place. (TV: The Three Doctors)

A member told the Doctor that Jamie, coming from the past, was worth a mint. When he said Jamie wasn't for sale, the Voraxx members followed them.

The Voraxx kidnapped Jamie, and took him aboard a slaver ship in orbit. Following Jamie's signal, the Doctor and Zoe found the trans-mat that led to the ship and found Jamie. They then awoke some Ice Warriors, who started an uprising. The slaves took over the ship, forcing the slavers to leave. As the trio teleported back to the shop, the Doctor was shocked to find his companions missing, having been captured by Adam Mitchell. (COMIC: Prisoners of Time)

War Chief Second Doctor War Games

The Doctor and the War Chief (TV: The War Games)

The Doctor, Jamie and Zoe helped unite the various resistance movements on the planet to fight the War Lords.

Jamie and Zoe were taken away from him and had their memories of the time they spent travelling with him removed, save for their first adventure. After showing that his interfering with time actually helped prevent evils such as the Daleks, Quarks, Yeti, Cybermen and Ice Warriors from gaining significant power, his sentence was handed down. He was to be exiled to Earth in the 20th century with a forced regeneration. He was given a choice of new appearance, but rejected all of the choices. At their wits' end, the Time Lords chose his new face for him and sent the protesting Doctor away to begin his exile. (TV: The War Games)

Working for the CIA Edit

Before the sentence could be carried out, the Celestial Intervention Agency interceded, turning the Doctor into their "hired gun". In his first mission, he met the Players, an experience that resulted in the death of his assistant, Serena, and left his hair temporarily grey. Using Serena's death as blackmail, the Doctor convinced Sardon to let Jamie travel with him again. Sardon conceded, and altered Jamie's memory to make him believe Victoria was away studying graphology. Sardon sent the Doctor to persuade his old friend, Joinson Dastari, to stop his experiments with time at the Space Station Camera. (PROSE: World Game)

Whilst hunting a troubled woman who had the ability to make others feel her pain and loneliness, the Doctor met an American teenager called Nanci Cruz, who helped him to stop the woman. (PROSE: Mother's Little Helper)

The Doctor and Jamie then investigated the murderous Mindy Voir on Helicon Prime, (AUDIO: Helicon Prime) and travelled to Earth in 54,010 and rescued a tribe of Stone Age humans from a bio-dome. (PROSE: All of Beyond)

As his predecessor had done before him, the Doctor took Jamie back in time to kill a baby destined to grow up into a dictator who would doom the Earth. However, the Doctor was unable to go through with the act, and left. (PROSE: Categorical Imperative)

After Jamie was returned to his own time by the CIA, (AUDIO: Helicon Prime) this time keeping his memory using a mind-trick the Doctor taught him, (COMIC: The World Shapers) the Doctor had an encounter with the Terrible Zodin, (TV: The Five Doctors) and then acted as a jury member of the First Doctor's trial. (PROSE: The Juror's Story)

The Doctor joined forces with a gang of teenage outcasts to stop the awakening of a golem, (PROSE: Golem) and teamed up with all of his other incarnations to save Gallifrey from destruction at the end of the Last Great Time War, but lost all memory of the event due to the timelines not being synchronised. (TV: The Day of the Doctor)

The Doctor defeated the Blenhims, (COMIC: The Mark of Terror) and visited Clio on her birthday to give her a recorder as a present. (PROSE: The Glass Princess) Escaping from the butterflies of Phlok, the Doctor met the Guerners on Rimba, (PROSE: The Sleeping Beast) and spent decades learning the psychic techniques of the Mind Monks of Darron. (PROSE: The Quantum Archangel)

The Doctor attended the funeral of Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart, as did all of his other incarnations. (PROSE: The Gift, Shroud of Sorrow)

2nd & Brig

The Doctor with the Brigadier at UNIT HQ. (TV: The Five Doctors)

The Doctor attended a UNIT reunion party, where he and the Brigadier were kidnapped by Borusa and taken to the Death Zone. The two escaped from a squad of Cybermen, encounter a Yeti and faced illusions of Jamie and Zoe. In the Dark Tower, the Doctor met his first, third and fifth incarnation, their companions and the Master. After Borusa was turned to stone by Rassilon, the Doctor was returned to his timezone. (TV: The Five Doctors)

During a brief trip in the TARDIS with the Brigadier, the Doctor was trapped in the event horizon of a black hole, (AUDIO: The Three Companions) and, still wearing his fur coat, had an adventure in an America park, where he briefly crossed paths with the Eighth Doctor and a version of Clara Oswald. (TV: The Name of the Doctor)

Second Doctor is captured

The Doctor is captured by the Master. (GAME: Destiny of the Doctors)

The Doctor was trapped in the Determinant by the Master, along with his six other incarnations, but was saved when the Graak defeated the Master, and sacrificed it's life force to liberate the trapped Doctors. (GAME: Destiny of the Doctors)

Day of the Tune The Who

The Doctor offers his recorder skills. (COMIC: Day of the Tune)

The Doctor attempted to form a band with his first, third and fourth incarnations, but creative differences, and the fact that they all wanted to play the drums, broke them up. (COMIC: Day of the Tune)

The Doctor helped Jovain Pallis investigate a murder on human colony on Mars, only to discover that Jovain was the murderer, (PROSE: Dust) gave a librarian a purpose in life, (PROSE: Pass It On) and went undercover at a film production which featured the Cybermen. (PROSE: Scientific Adviser)

Hiding in luxury Edit

Info from Action in Exile, The Mark of Terror, The Brotherhood and U.F.O. needs to be added

These omissions are so great that the article's factual accuracy has been compromised. Check out the discussion page and revision history for further clues about what needs to be updated in this article.

The Mark of Terror

The Doctor is featured in the newspaper. (COMIC: The Mark of Terror)

Unable to hide behind CIA protection, the Doctor's sentence of exile to Earth was enforced, (COMIC: Action in Exile) although he was able to escape before the Time Lords could enforce a regeneration. (COMIC: The Night Walkers) Now exiled, the Doctor took up residence in the Carlton Grange Hotel in London, (COMIC: Action in Exile) where he enjoyed considerable luxury and press attention, with people from around the world bringing their problems to him. (COMIC: The Mark of Terror, The Brotherhood, U.F.O.)

Death Edit

Night Walkers Regeneration Colour

The Doctor regenerates into his third incarnation. (COMIC: The Night Walkers)

While appearing on the game show Explain My Mystery, the Doctor was asked to consider the case of Mr. Glenlock-Hogan, a farmer with walking scarecrows. He wasn't able to do so and arranged for an off-camera visit to the farm. Knowing it was a case so preposterous-sounding that it would not be taken seriously by anyone else but him, the Doctor wanted to investigate the matter privately. When he arrived, the scarecrows duly began to walk around. Eventually, they captured and shot him, revealing that they had been animated by the Time Lords in order to carry out the remaining part of his sentence.

The scarecrows dragged him to his waiting TARDIS, where they forced him to regenerate. During the process, the scarecrows programmed the TARDIS for a final flight, (COMIC: The Night Walkers) and edited the Doctor's memory to make him think he had been executed at his trial. (AUDIO: Legend of the Cybermen, Stage Fright) The TARDIS travelled to an English field, where it was found, along with the newly-regenerated Doctor, by UNIT. (TV: Spearhead from Space)

Post-mortem Edit

This section's awfully stubby.

Info from Funhouse, Timewyrm: Revelation & Head Games needs to be added

In the Doctor's dream garden, the Second Doctor planted Forget-me-nots, in memory of Jamie and Zoe. (PROSE: Into the Silent Land)

When under attack by an space amoeba, the Fourth Doctor briefly turned back into his second incarnation. (COMIC: Timeslip)

When trapped in a dimensionally-unstable pocket universe controlled by Iam and the Rani, the Sixth Doctor's morphic print was destabilised, causing him to unwillingly regress back through his previous incarnations as his body sought a stable morphic print. (PROSE: State of Change)

When the Tenth Doctor was confronted by Es'Cartrss within the TARDIS' Matrix, he summoned the Second Doctor, among his other past incarnations, to use their united memories and willpower to take back control of the Matrix. (COMIC: The Forgotten)

After the Eleventh Doctor was accused of committing deadly crimes against the Overcast, he brooded in the TARDIS for two days, imagining all his previous numbered incarnations, including the Second Doctor, interrogating him over the crimes. When he offered the rational that he always left things better than he found them, they all turned and left him in disgust and disgrace. (COMIC: Pull to Open)

When the Eleventh Doctor entered into the T'keyn Nexus in order to defend himself, Matrix projections of his previous incarnations, including the Second Doctor, appeared inside it to defend themselves as well. (COMIC: Dead Man's Hand)

Undated adventures Edit

2 Two doctors

Alternate timelines Edit

In an alternate version of the London Event, the Doctor was killed by Colonel Spencer Pemberton in the London Underground. (PROSE: Legacies)

Psychological profile Edit

Personality Edit

Thought Channel

The Doctor defends his interference in time. (TV: The War Games)

The second incarnation was a complete change of pace from his predecessor - whimsical, somewhat buffoonish, yet still witty. He was no longer a grandfather figure, but rather more of a favourite uncle.[source needed] Indeed, the slow transition of the first incarnation from a reluctant travelling companion to a more kindly compatriot was completed here, as the second incarnation very much enjoyed embroiling himself in adventures with his assistants.[source needed] Despite his bluster and tendency to panic when events got out of control, the Second Doctor always acted heroically and morally in his desire to help the oppressed and fight "the most terrible things [in the universe]". (TV: The Moonbase, The Enemy of the World, The War Games)

He also had a warmer, gentler way about him than his previous incarnation. (TV: The Tomb of the Cybermen) Mercurial, clever, and always a few steps ahead of his enemies, at times he could be a calculating schemer who would not only manipulate people for the greater good, but act like a bumbling fool in order to have others underestimate his true abilities. (TV: The Evil of the Daleks, The Tomb of the Cybermen, The Web of Fear, The Wheel in Space)

He was very childlike in his love of play, dancing a jig in his new body, (TV: The Power of the Daleks) on the outskirts of Atlantis, (TV: The Underwater Menace) and a beach in Australia. (TV: The Enemy of the World) Although he was always in trouble, he loved peace and quiet and was as surprised and frightened of alien menaces as those who faced them with him.[source needed] However, unlike his reclusive predecessor, the Doctor was quite willing to enjoy fame, and even fortune, when he could find it. (COMIC: Martha the Mechanical Housemaid)

Despite the Doctor's almost childlike recklessness, it was always clear to his allies that a keen, deliberate intellect lurked behind his every action. (TV: The Macra Terror) Although he frequently gave the impression that he never knew what he was doing, this was simply an an act put on to fool those who would underestimate him. (TV: The Tomb of the Cybermen, The Dominators)


A more serious side of the second incarnation. (TV: The Krotons)

Paradoxically, he had a deep streak of ruthlessness when needed, as he wired the Cyber-Tombs doors to fatally electrocute anyone trying to open them, (TV: The Tomb of the Cybermen) reacted unfazed to Salamander's fate, (TV: The Enemy of the World) ensured that a relatively helpless party of Daleks would all die, (COMIC: Bringer of Darkness) steered an Ice Warrior fleet into the sun, (TV: The Seeds of Death) and used his ray gun to killed the Master of Spiders while shouting "Die, hideous creature. Die!" (COMIC: Master of Spiders)

The Second Doctor was also painfully aware of the need to see the "bigger picture", knowing that it was entirely proper to sacrifice a few lives if it would save millions. (TV: The Evil of the Daleks, The Wheel in Space)

Doctors 2 & 3

The Doctor with his succeeding incarnation. (TV: The Three Doctors)

The Second Doctor had a noticeably antagonistic relationship with the Third Doctor, their personalities so different that they seemed incapable of working together without the authoritative presence of the First Doctor. (TV: The Three Doctors)

The Sixth Doctor considered his second incarnation to be an "antediluvian fogey" for apparently being captured by the Sontarans. (TV: The Two Doctors)

By the time he fought Side, the Doctor considered Jamie to be the most reliable friend that he had ever had. (AUDIO: The Jigsaw War) The Sixth Doctor even told his companion, Peri Brown, that he was "always very fond of Jamie." When Chessene of the Franzine Grig informed him that Jamie had most likely been killed in a Sontaran attack, the Doctor began going into a grief-stricken tantrum until he was restrained. (TV: The Two Doctors)

Zoe Heriot considered the Second Doctor to be a "lovely little man", who was "such fun to be with." (PROSE: One Small Step...) On another occasion, she described him as "old, clever and kind." (AUDIO: The Five Dimensional Man)

When faced with a forced regeneration from the Time Lords, the Doctor, at first, was concerned over his next incarnation's appearance, maintaining that he had the right to decide what he looked like. After rejecting his offers, the Doctor protested that the Time Lords could not treat him the way they were, and continued protesting in the void, (TV: The War Games) until the Celestial Intervention Agency intervened. (PROSE: World Game)

When he was shot and executed by the Time Lords' animated scarecrows, the Doctor used his dying breath to reassure Farmer Hogan, who was on the verge of a nervous breakdown from seeing his scarecrows come to life, that the phenomenon would not happen again after the night was over. (COMIC: The Night Walkers)

Habits and quirks Edit

The Second Doctor developed a habit of running away from danger when inappropriately prepared, often instructing his companions to retreat with, "when I say run, run!" (TV: The Power of the Daleks, The Faceless Ones, The Evil of the Daleks, The Tomb of the Cybermen) He was prone to exclaiming, "Oh, my word!", when startled, (TV: The Ice Warriors, The Dominators, The Invasion, The War Games) intrigued, (TV: The Web of Fear, The Krotons, The Three Doctors) or annoyed. (TV: The Seeds of Death) Other favoured phrase of his were, "Oh, my giddy aunt!" (TV: The Krotons, The Three Doctors, The Two Doctors) and, "By the planets!" (COMIC: The Coming of the Cybermen, The Faithful Rocket Pack, The Time Museum)


The Doctor in disguise. (TV: The Underwater Menace)

He easily donned disguises without self-consciousness to age, gender, or dignity; he posed as a German physician, a washerwoman, and a wounded British soldier in Scotland, (TV: The Highlanders) and dressed as a strange, gypsy-like musician in Atlantis. (TV: The Underwater Menace)

The second incarnation possessed a recorder, which he played to concentrate or while under stress. (TV: The Power of the Daleks, The Three Doctors) This recorder was also one of the Doctor's tricks of obfuscation, and he could use it as an effective tool, having a separate mouthpiece that turned it into a spyglass, (TV: The Wheel in Space) improvise it into a blowgun, (TV: The Underwater Menace) or play a tune with a hidden message.[source needed]

He displayed a fondness of music in other ways besides the recorder, occasionally humming bits of music, (TV: The Krotons) and creating a glass harmonica out of a water glass to pick the sonic lock in his Vulcan Colony cell. (TV: The Power of the Daleks) He had a silent whistle and a pair of bagpipes and told Jamie he could trade travel on the TARDIS for lessons. (TV: The Highlanders) In Atlantis, he played his recorder and a small tambourine as part of his disguise. (TV: The Underwater Menace)

Second Doctor (The Three...)

The Doctor ponders. (TV: The Three Doctors)

Other habits included wringing his hands together, (TV: The Faceless Ones, The Tomb of the Cybermen, The Mind Robber) shifting his jaw when pondering, (TV: The Krotons, The Three Doctors) and elbowing Jamie. (TV: The Faceless Ones, The Web of Fear)

Skills Edit

The Second Doctor had a gift for diplomacy and winning others over to his side, enabling him to trick others into doing what he wished, such as fooling Jamie into going through a series of tests designed to isolate the Human Factor, tricking the Daleks themselves into giving the Human Factor to test subject Daleks, and finally to administer the Dalek Factor to the Doctor himself, which he knew would only work on humans. (TV: The Evil of the Daleks) In a similar way, he pretended to go along with the Great Intelligence's brain transference operation in order to short-circuit the disembodied being, (TV: The Web of Fear) convinced the War Chief to regard him as an ally, (TV: The War Games) and persuaded Omega to spare the Third Doctor's life. (TV: The Three Doctors)


The Doctor puts Vana in a hypnotic trance. (TV: The Krotons)

He also possessed telepathic ability, including being able to use telepathy to show Zoe Heriot his previous adventure with the Daleks via mental projection, (TV: The Wheel in Space) but found the process tiring. (TV: The Dominators) The Master of the Land of Fiction had to trick him with his loyalty to Jamie and Zoe in order to gain partial control of his mind and will. (TV: The Mind Robber) He locked his mind in battle with the Great Intelligence and kept it occupied long enough for his friends to act against it. (TV: The Abominable Snowmen) Although the Androgum Chessene could read minds, she could not read the Doctor's, even when he was drugged and helpless. (TV: The Two Doctors)

He was also shown to be adept with at least a basic level of hypnosis, having used it on Victoria, to break the programming implanted by the Great Intelligence in Tibet, and on Songsten, in order to extract information regarding the Intelligence's scheme. (TV: The Abominable Snowmen) The Doctor later put Vana into a trance following the mental assault inflicted by the Krotons. (TV: The Krotons)

Physically younger than his predecessor, the Second Doctor was able to outrun various pursuers, (TV: The Seeds of Death) and avoid weapon ammunition fired at him. (TV: The Invasion)

Though the Second Doctor learned the arts of Venusian aikido on Venus, he never actually used it. (AUDIO: Voyage to Venus)

The Doctor was also a convincing actor, being able to masquerade as the Chameleons' Director without arousing suspicion, (TV: The Faceless Ones) and, against his will, he also impersonated his physical double, Ramón Salamander, with a performance convincing enough to fool Jamie and Victoria. (TV: The Enemy of the World)

Appearance Edit

Two close

The Doctor's menacing glare. (TV: The Three Doctors)

The second incarnation resembled a shortish man in his early forties. (TV: The Tenth Planet, The Power of the Daleks) He had blue eyes, (TV: The Three Doctors) though one account described his eyes as being "soft chestnut brown", (PROSE: Pluto) while another depicted them as bright green. (COMIC: Prisoners of Time) A third account claimed his eyes appeared to change colour several times, alternating between blue, grey, and green. (PROSE: Invasion of the Cat-People)

Liz Shaw told her mother that the Doctor resembled a "geography teacher" when he first encountered UNIT. (AUDIO: The Last Post) Polly Wright described him as looking like "an unmade bed" to Jamie, (PROSE: The Nameless City) and "a bit sartorially challenged" to the Brigadier. (AUDIO: The Three Companions) Madame Razetskia described the Second Doctor as a "funny little clown", (PROSE: Endgame) while the Fifth Doctor described him as a "hobo". (PROSE: Five Card Draw)

The First Doctor called him "a clown" due to his scruffy appearance, (TV: The Three Doctors) whilst the Third Doctor labelled him a "scarecrow". (TV: The Five Doctors)

Samantha Briggs described the Second Doctor as "a short man, with a mournful face and dishevelled clothing." She also noted that he had a "blurred" English accent, which defied description, and seemed to be extremely knowledgeable on a wide variety of subjects. (PROSE: Who Killed Kennedy)

When Affinity took on the Second Doctor's appearance, the Twelfth Doctor noted that his second incarnation was "a rather scruffy gentleman, [with] dark, unruly hair" and was "clad in a jacket that seemed several sizes too big and to have been slept in." (PROSE: Silhouette)

Hair and grooming Edit

The Second Doctor had longish, rumpled black hair, (TV: The Tenth Planet) though, after going on a stressful mission for the Time Lords, (PROSE: World Game) his hair briefly turned grey. (TV: The Two Doctors)

Polly also compared his hairstyle to those worn by The Beatles, (AUDIO: The Three Companions) as did John Benton, (AUDIO: The Hexford Invasion) Isobel Watkins, (PROSE: Who Killed Kennedy) Ace (AUDIO: The Light at the End) and Jo Grant. (AUDIO: The Defectors)

Clothing Edit


The Doctor in his Stovepipe hat. (TV: The Power of the Daleks)

The Second Doctor dressed similarly to his previous incarnation, though in far more clustered fashion; His trousers were clownishly large and his bow tie was often crooked and used to secure his shirt collar. (TV: The Power of the Daleks)

He wore a battered old frock coat many sizes too large, which added to his clownish demeanor, (TV: The Power of the Daleks) but demonstrated its usefulness as a secret arsenal of tools, gadgets, food, and seemingly frivolous objects; he carried the TARDIS' Time Vector Generator inside a pocket in his inner lining without difficulty, (TV: The Wheel in Space) and had a magnet hidden in a pocket sewn behind his outer breast pocket. (TV: The Invasion) The Doctor often kept a handkerchief in the coat's breast pocket. (TV: The Highlanders)

Under his frock coat, he wore a plain shirt with a blue bow tie. (TV: The Power of the Daleks) His shirt colours varied from plain white to a bright or dull blue. (TV: The Power of the Daleks, The Three Doctors, The Five Doctors) He also wore brown-themed baggy plaid trousers, and black ankle boots. (TV: The Power of the Daleks) Occasionally, he would wear a waistcoat. (PROSE: Daleks Invade Zaos, Golem)

When in colder environments, the Doctor would wear a cloak, (TV: The Highlanders, The Underwater Menace, The Tomb of the Cybermen) or an over-sized fur coat. (TV: The Abominable Snowmen, The Ice Warriors, The Five Doctors, The Name of the Doctor)

He also expressed a liking for hats, stating that he "would like a hat like that" when he spotted new headgear. (TV: The Power of the Daleks, The Highlanders) His most prominent hat was a stovepipe hat, (TV: The Power of the Daleks, The Underwater Menace) but he also wore a Balmoral bonnet and a British Army tricorn while in Scotland. (TV: The Highlanders)

Behind the scenes Edit

The Brilliant Book 2011 Edit

According to The Brilliant Book 2011 (a non-narrative based book), the Second Doctor met Winston Churchill in 1882, giving him lessons in Latin, including how to address a table in Latin.

Other matters Edit

  • Rupert Davies, Valentine Dyall, Michael Hordern and Brian Blessed were all approached for the role of the Second Doctor. All declined, as they didn't want to commit to a long-running series.
  • Matt Smith, in preparation for his role as the Eleventh Doctor, watched the Troughton serial The Tomb of the Cybermen, and fell in love with it. He describes Troughton as "rather wonderful" and as being his favourite Doctor. Smith's costume and mannerisms are reminiscent of Troughton's.
  • Almost half of the episodes from the Second Doctor's era have been lost, leaving only seven of Patrick Troughton's 21 TV stories still fully intact (excluding his appearances in multi-Doctor specials). Two further incomplete stories have been released commercially, with specially-created material to bridge the missing episodes. Surviving "orphan" episodes and footage have been released on the Lost in Time DVD collection.
  • The Second Doctor was the first incarnation to directly work with four of his other selves on television, though that turned out to be a number also attained by the Fifth Doctor by virtue of Time Crash. If one includes a story this wiki generally doesn't — Dimensions in Time — then it could be said that the Third and Sixth Doctors were on the "four-timer" list, as well. However, there was no actual "interaction" between Doctors in Dimensions.
  • Until Time Crash, the Second Doctor was the only incarnation to appear in all televised multi-Doctor stories. As of 2013, Troughton holds the record for working with the highest number of other incarnations, having directly interacted with four other Doctors: the First, Third, Fifth, and Sixth Doctors. Taking into account all performed media, however, the record-holder is Peter Davison. His appearances on audio with the Sixth, Seventh, and Eighth Doctors add to his totals from The Five Doctors and Time Crash, to give a grand total of eight other Doctors.
  • The Second Doctor was the first incarnation to have his face integrated into the Doctor Who title sequence, beginning with The Macra Terror.
  • The Second Doctor is the only incarnation who was forced to regenerate, though the regeneration isn't seen in The War Games, and was confirmed he didn't regenerate until The Night Walkers, the only story to actually show the Second Doctor's regeneration properly.
  • Unlike future Doctors after himself, the Second Doctor was the only incarnation to emerge from his regeneration with a different set of clothes, as opposed to future incarnations who would have to find a new pair of clothes after changing out of the clothes worn by their previous incarnation.
