Doctor Who Magazine Issue #506 celebrates 50 years of Patrick Troughton’s Second Doctor.
Patrick’s first full-length serial, The Power of the Daleks (which, coincidentally, has just been released as an animation), aired half a century ago this month, so it’s as good a time as any to look back on an historic era that went on to change everything viewers thought they knew about TV’s beloved Time Lord.
