* ''Film/JasonAndTheArgonauts'' (1963 version)(1963)


Troughton left the role after three years alongside co-stars Frazer Hines and Wendy Padbury out of fear of being [[{{Typecasting}} typecast]] and from pressure from his wife [[note]]Frazer Hines said that he believes, had Patrick not listened to his wife, we would still have the Second Doctor, Jamie and Zoe as the TARDIS team, even to this day[[/note]]. It would be over [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E17E18TheEndOfTime 40]] [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E1TheEleventhHour years]] until the entire cast changed at once again. He retained a life-long affiliation with the programme, returning to play the Doctor three more times in various special episodes. Creator/MattSmith, the Eleventh Doctor, cites Troughton as an inspiration for his version of the character, and it shows. He is also the actor who reprised his role for televised multi-Doctor specials most often ([[Recap/DoctorWhoS10E1TheThreeDoctors "The Three Doctors"]], [[Recap/DoctorWho20thASTheFiveDoctors "The Five Doctors"]] and [[Recap/DoctorWhoS22E4TheTwoDoctors "The Two Doctors"]]), beating fellow actors from that period Creator/JonPertwee ([[Recap/DoctorWho30thASDimensionsInTime "Dimensions in Time"]] and "The Five Doctors") and William Hartnell ("The Three Doctors" and TheOtherDarrin in "The Five Doctors" [[Creator/DavidBradley and ]][[Recap/DoctorWho2017CSTwiceUponATime "Twice Upon A Time"]]). Troughton advised Creator/PeterDavison to limit his time to three seasons in order to avoid being typecast as the Doctor, and the rule has since been followed by Creator/DavidTennant, Creator/MattSmith, and Creator/PeterCapaldi. He spoke out in favour of a female incarnation of the Doctor many decades before [[Creator/JodieWhittaker the Thirteenth Doctor]] was cast.

* DeadpanSnarker: The Second Doctor could really be on the snarky side at some points, especially if paired up with the [[Creator/JonPertwee Third Doctor]].


He died of a heart attack at the Magnum Opus Con II Science Fiction [[FanConvention convention]] in America, after ignoring the advice of his doctors who had told him not to go. He had two daughters and four sons. Many of his sons and grandsons have followed in his footsteps and become actors. His son David has made two significant ''Doctor Who'' appearances, as King Peladon in the Third Doctor story [[Recap/DoctorWhoS9E2TheCurseOfPeladon "The Curse of Peladon"]] and as Professor Hobbes in the Tenth Doctor episode [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E10Midnight "Midnight"]], whilst his other son Michael appeared in [[Recap/DoctorWho2014CSLastChristmas the 2014 Christmas special]]. David's son, Creator/SamTroughton, is best known as Much in the 2006 [[Series/RobinHood BBC Robin Hood series]]. Another grandson, Harry Melling, is best known as Dudley Dursley in the [[Franchise/HarryPotter Harry Potter films]]. (Alice Troughton, who has directed several episodes of ''Doctor Who'', is '''not''' a close relative of his.)

* VitriolicBestBuds: Had this dynamic with Creator/JonPertwee: While filming [[Recap/DoctorWhoS10E1TheThreeDoctors ''The Three Doctors'']] their two approaches to acting clashed (Pertwee was incredibly "by the book", Troughton enjoyed adblibbing) and they got on each other's nerves. After that they grew to become close friends but kept bickering during public appearances as they enjoyed this effect. They were disappointed about their lack of shared screentime in [[Recap/DoctorWho20thASTheFiveDoctors the twentieth anniversary special]].
