Featuring

Colin Baker

The 6th Doctor

Baker's first appearance as the Doctor occurred at the final minutes of The Caves of Androzani, where he delivered his first few lines. The closing title sequence for episode four features Baker's face instead of Peter Davison and credits him as the Doctor before Davison's own credit. This was the first (and, to date, only) time that the new lead received top billing in the final story of an outgoing Doctor. Baker then made his first full story debut the following week in The Twin Dilemma. It was the first since 1966, and 2nd time in the series.

David Bradley

The 1st Doctor

In 2017, in the final episode of the tenth series of Doctor Who, "The Doctor Falls", Bradley returned to portray the First Doctor, having previously been portrayed by Hartnell, who originally played the character. He reprised this role in the 2017 Christmas special, "Twice Upon a Time". This makes him the third actor to play the role in the television programme, after William Hartnell and Richard Hurndall since the premiere of Doctor Who in 1963, and at the age of 75, he is the also the oldest actor to play the role of the Doctor.

Eric Roberts

The Master

Eric Roberts was the fifth actor to portray the Master. The 1996 TV Movie introduced Eric Roberts as the Master. The Master is basically a renegade Time Lord, known for always been up to no good, he has a particular dislike for the Doctor. Both Brilliant, but with opposite thinking, the Master would think it nothing to destroy a race to meet his ends. On occasions the Masters plans have gone astray and he has been forced to work with the Doctor to put things right. The Masters goal has always been Domination, by whatever means necessary.

John Barrowman

Captain Jack

Barrowman is best known in the UK for his role in the BBC science fiction drama Doctor Who. When the series was revived in 2005, Barrowman came on board as recurring guest character Captain Jack Harkness, a pansexual time traveller from the 51st century. His first appearance as Harkness was in the two-part story "The Empty Child"/"The Doctor Dances". He went on to appear in the next 3 episodes.

Paul McGann

The 8th Doctor

Paul McGann played the eighth incarnation of the Doctor in the Doctor Who 1996 television film. Rumours abounded that Paul McGann would reprise the role of the Eighth Doctor in a new series of television films, alongside the current television series. McGann has denied these rumours. After months of speculation, on 14 November 2013 (coincidentally McGann's birthday).

Peter Davison

The 5th Doctor

In 1980, Davison signed a contract to play the Doctor for three years, succeeding Tom Baker (the Fourth Doctor) and, at age 29, was at the time the youngest actor to have played the lead role, a record he retained for nearly thirty years. The Fifth Doctor encountered many of the Doctor's best-known adversaries, including the Daleks (in Resurrection of the Daleks) and the Cybermen (in Earthshock).

Nicola Bryant

Peri Brown

She played the part from 1984 to 1986, first with Peter Davison and then with Colin Baker as the Doctor. Bryant's tenure on the show was met with raised eyebrows in some quarters. Series producer John Nathan-Turner admitted that his intention was to pump up the sex appeal of the ageing series.

Carole Ann Ford

Susan Foreman

She is sometimes credited, played companion Susan Foreman from "The Pilot Episode" to The Dalek Invasion of Earth and again in the anniversary stories The Five Doctors and Dimensions in Time. She also played Zorelle in the Reeltime Pictures spin-off video Shakedown: Return of the Sontarans.

Katy Manning

Jo Grant

She played the part of Jo from 1971 to 1973 alongside Jon Pertwee's Doctor. Manning struck up an immediate rapport with her co-stars, Pertwee, Nicholas Courtney (the Brigadier), John Levene (Sergeant Benton), Richard Franklin (Captain Yates) and Roger Delgado (the Master).

Janet Fielding

Tegan Jovanka

Fielding played the part between 1981 and 1984. She made a guest appearance on Jim'll Fix It in a Doctor Who related sketch alongside Colin Baker's Sixth Doctor in 1985 (A Fix with Sontarans). A featurette included in the 2010 DVD release of Time and the Rani reveals that she participated in the auditions for the Seventh Doctor.

Nick Frost

Santa Claus

"Last Christmas" was the 2014 Christmas Special of Doctor Who. It was the show's tenth Christmas special since its revival and the first starring Capaldi as the Doctor. It guest-starred Nick Frost as a dream manifestation of Santa Claus, previously seen at the end of Death in Heaven as a lead-in to this story.

Michelle Gomez

The Master “Missy”

Michelle Gomez played Missy (short for Mistress) in series 8, 9 and 10 of Doctor Who. She also voiced Jevvan in the Big Finish Doctor Who audio story. “I don’t think any fandom can quite compare to the Doctor Who fandom, who I am eternally loyal to and grateful for,” Gomez told Radio Times.
