Comments: Played by Peter Cushing. He was the Doctor in two movies, both produced by Amicus in the sixties. A third movie was discussed, but the idea was eventually dropped. Since then the character has returned twice - once in a short story (The House on Oldark Moor) in the short story collection Doctor Who: Short Trips and Side Steps; and once in a new comic strip, Daleks vs. The Martians. The Doctor who Brief Encounter in DWM #190, entitled A Visit to the Cinema, implies that the Doctor Who movies exist in the Doctor's universe, as fictional adaptions of his real adventures.
Thanks to Kelvin Green for the clarifier about the Japanese Doctor Who.

Doctor Who, evil Japanese scientist who dresses somewhat like the first Doctor, from 1966 Toho Studios movie "King Kong Escapes"
