Unusual Doctor Who Photo #1

Welcome to a new bonus feature in the Junkyard!  Let’s start at the beginning, with this rather unusual publicity shot from An Unearthly Child:

Hartnell An Unearthly Child with glasses

(source: tragicalhistorytour.com)

Seeing Hartnell in a publicity shot wearing glasses is quite striking, isn’t it.  Yes, he does put glasses on in the series from time to time, but it’s not how he’s usually pictured.  That’s probably why this image has been so rarely utilised in books and magazines over the years.   RP
