The Third Doctor
Frilly shirts, velvet jackets and a cape (!) — The Third Doctor (1970 to 1974) was a cross between The Saint, James Bond and, well, The Doctor. Debonair, swashbuckling, charming and ingenius, Jon Pertwee as The Doctor was a master of Venusian Aikido/Karate and a skilled driver of bonkers vehicles.
