"And remember…no more monkery!"
The Meddling Monk.
Our favourite is the Monk, the tinkering with history menace who thought that changing the outcome of the Battle of Hastings was no big deal, and had a checklist where he could cross off his interfering shenanigans. Meeting King Harold is apparently his prime directive.
The Monk and the Doctor are a great double act and provided so many amusing moments in ‘the Time Meddler’ which is just a fantastic serial, and is of course our first look at one of the Doctor’s own people. We love that the Monk was never evil but rather he was changing things for his own amusement. The Monk also returned in ‘the Daleks’ Master Plan’. What a great character who suited Hartnell’s Doctor so well.
