Agent of S.T.Y.L.E. – The Alternate Versions of Doctor Who

This year, the 50th anniversary special of Doctor Who, “The Day of the Doctor,” introduced us properly to the War Doctor. This previously unknown incarnation of the hero, played by John Hurt, wore an outfit combining elements of the Eighth Doctor’s with the leather jacket of the Ninth, plus a belt taken from a woman named Cass whom the hero had previously failed to save. “The Day of the Doctor” also featured another version of the hero who had previously only appeared in the novel Summer Falls by Amelia Williams (AKA Amy Pond).

Over the years, there have been other interesting alternative takes on the Time Lord scientist of the planet Gallifrey. So this time around, we’re looking at the “what could have been” and “almost were” versions of the Doctor, along with costumes the character has worn in licensed media. Fan-films and the like aren’t included or we’d be here forever, even if we had a time machine.

io9 has an incredibly fascinating article on the team that put together the very first Doctor Who series nearly fifty years ago, namely director Waris Hussein, series “originator” Sydney Newman, and producer Verity Lambert, all newcomers to the BBC and establishment outsiders in a production studio what was predominantly older British men. As an East Indian man, a Canadian immigrant, and a young woman, the three show runners were considered totally at odds with the prevailing culture of the BBC at the time, and so was their commitment to science fiction. According to Hussein, it was pretty much assumed that they’d fall on their faces.
