- List of actors who have played the Doctor
Since the long-running British science fiction television series "
Doctor Who" began in 1963, many actors have played the title character of the Doctor on television, and in various BBClicensed spin-offs on television, stage, radio, film, audio plays and webcasts. The character's ability periodically to regenerate his appearance and personality has facilitated the ability of new actors to take over the role — in both official and unofficial productions — while in most cases maintaining continuity with the television series. However, as noted below, some actors have played versions of the Doctor (including a fully human variant whose name - unlike that of the canonical version - really is Doctor Who) that depart from the canon.
This list does not include stand-ins, stunt men, most actors featured in sketch comedies and send-ups or Doctors who have appeared in
fan films, amateur stage shows or audios.
