Patrick Troughton

actor, time traveller, and Doctor Who (1966-1969)

Died aged c. 67

Patrick George Troughton (/ˈtraʊtən/; 25 March 1920 – 28 March 1987) was an English actor. He was classically trained for the stage but became most widely known for his roles in television and film. His work included appearances in several fantasy, science fiction and horror films, and playing the second incarnation of the Doctor in the long-running British science-fiction television series Doctor Who from 1966 to 1969; he reprised the role in 1972–1973, 1983 and 1985. Although he is most well known for his television career and was loved by audiences for his versatility in roles, many of the productions Troughton performed in between 1947 and 1971 were amongst those either never recorded or destroyed by UK broadcasters, most notably his stint on Doctor Who. Many of his appearances, including most of his personal favourites, remain missing to this day.
