  Patrick Troughton
The Second Doctor (1966-1969)

In 1966, audiences sat in awe as the Doctor regenerated on screen for the very first time. Regeneration was introduced as a concept to keep the series fresh and exciting and it certainly did that, as a new incarnation of the Time Lord stepped out of those TARDIS doors. Fans were reassured that time and space was in very good hands as their new hero, Patrick Troughton, got down to business, proving to be more mercurial and darker than his predecessor.
