 First appearance: Dr. Who and the Daleks

Weird movie version of popular TV show. The movie starred Peter Cushing as the eponymous Doctor. The plot of the movie is pretty much the same as the TV serial "The Daleks" only this time the Doctor is a human named Doctor Who (Doctor might be his first name, I don't know). Susan is still his granddaughter but now so is Barbara, Ian's still Barbara's boyfriend. You'll also notice some Daleks also have claws and snazzy paint schemes.
It's interesting to note that Peter Cushing makes no mention of the character nor the two Dr. Who movies (the second one was called "Daleks — Invasion Earth: 2150 A.D." and was based on the TV serial "The Dalek invasion of Earth" it performed poorly so the third Dalek film was never made) in his  Autobiography.
