The Game of Rassilon Wiki

The First Doctor is the earliest incarnation of the Time Lord known as the Doctor. He was played in the 2018 Gallifrey One live show by Joseph Scrimshaw.

Within The Game of Rassilon[]

The First Doctor had a previous, undocumented encounter with the Somnivores. (Lethargica)

Non-canonical adventures[]

The First Doctor traveled briefly with companions Captain Jack Harkness, Vislor Turlough, and Nardole, during which time he was abducted by the Somnivores and placed into a dream state which simulated a 21st century cruise ship. The Doctor and his companions escaped and made short work of the Somnivores, preventing an invasion of Earth. (Gallifrey One 2018 Live Show)

Behind the Scenes[]

  • The encounter with the Somnivores alluded to in Lethargica is most likely the Gallifrey One 2018 Live Show, however as Gallifrey One live shows are not considered canonical to the podcast, this wiki takes the position that they are not the same event.
  • Joseph Scrimshaw played the First Doctor in the live show largely as a befuddled but crotchety old man.
