Project Who 50: #19 Marc Cory
Another in my character portraits leading up to the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who, this time from the first Doctor story "Mission To The Unknown".
So what's so special about Marc Cory? Well I'll tell you - this story he appears in is one episode long and doesn't feature any of the regular cast at all. Marc Cory (played by Edward de Souza) becomes the lead character in Doctor Who! The first time in Doctor Who someone other than the Doctor or his companions becomes a lead character. I suppose, later, Elton and Sally would also do this, but even then they had the Doctor's help. Marc didn't and what happened? He got exterminated by the Daleks, that's what! Poor bastard...
