My First Doctor was Christopher Echelson

Written By: Gary on August 10, 2011 4 Comments

I liked Christopher Echelson, he was cocky but also caring at the same time. He was more of a fighter then the Doctor’s since and he tried not to take any crap. But part of why I liked him was that while he was tough he also had a soft side.

My first post about Doctor Who over 5 years ago and was about the ninth doctor.

DrwhoThe Doctor: (Asking Jack about his raygun) Sonic blaster… 51st Century… Weapon factories at Villengard?
Capt. Jack Harkness: Yeah. You’ve been to the factories?
The Doctor: Once.
Jack: They’re gone now, destroyed. Main reactor went critical. Vaporised the lot.
The Doctor: Like I said, once. There’s a banana grove there now. I like bananas. Bananas are good.

I’d have liked to have seen nine with Donna…

Supposedly he left Doctor Who so he wouldn’t get typecast and while he’s done a few different types of things he’s gotten typecast a lot in the SciFi type shows and movies and I don’t think he has any Doctor Who interest any more. That’s too bad (IMHO), since Tennant reigned for three-plus seasons and Matt Smith looks like he’ll be around for three (even Amy is around for three) and pretty soon Alex Kingston will have been around longer than anyone! Maybe he’s happy, but having a bunch of fans for life seems to be a good way to be.

    He was my first Doctor too! I think you nailed it with the description of “cocky but also caring.” His version of the Doctor was angry but looking for and hoping for salvation – trying to find some redemption from what 8 had to do for the Time War and CE nailed every nuance. Like the t-shirt says: you never forget your 1st Doctor. He was…Fantastic!

    Are there any other of Gary’s friends that think Gary would make a good Doctor Who?
