The Classic Doctors of Whoniverse-B

Happy 53rd Whoniversary! To celebrate, we go into the side-verse I call Whoniverse-B, where Doctor Who episodes were just a touch different. Today's experiment is to look at how the stories would have gone down if each Doctor had adopted a different look, one pulled from some other iconic role held by the same actor...
Doctor 1-B was a hard-assed sergeant type character, harsher even than OUR universe's Hartnell Doctor. He got his granddaughter and her teachers in line and never did any of them change even a line of history!
Why Doctor 2-B took to wearing a priest's collar is wrapped into how his former self "died". The military Doc's antagonism marked him as a threat to Mondas' Cybermen, and he was shot where he stood. His next regeneration therefore became a man of peace, though a naughty one who played the vicar's part without having any real ties to the Church, or any human religion. Did give him some measure of authority though.
The Time Lords' punishment was much harsher in Whoniverse-B, and Pertwee's Doctor 3-B was forced into a scarecrow look, which he made more disarming than creepy. And you thought our second Doctor was a "hobo".
More strange choices from BBC-B, Doctor 4-B as a rather serious 1001 Nights type, here seen facing Swampies in the serial The Power of Krall.
Forget about the celery stick, Doctor 5-B always traveled with a clutch of baby pigs called Adric and Tegan.
Oh God no, Doctor 6-B didn't really get a worse costume than our Colin Baker's was forced to wear, did he?! Try again!
Noooo, stop it. Spin the wheel again.
Fine. Good enough. Forget it. Next!
The 7th Doctor was less Merlin and more Radagast in Whoniverse-B, the same science wizard, but more outlandish and absent-minded.

Man, Whoniverse-B sure push the eccentric part of the Doctor's personality! Come back next week for the newer Doctors, I have a TARDIS to catch.

I was kinda hoping 4-B had been a legless Elizabethan sailor.
