In Doctor Who, the Doctor was exiled to earth by the Time Lords. During which actor's stint playing the character did he spend most of his time on earth?
Following the defeat of the War Lord's allies, a triad of Time Lords tried the Second Doctor (Patrick Troughton) for violations of their non-interference policy.
Unbeknownst to the Doctor at the time, the Celestial Intervention Agency stepped in and appealed for a stay of execution.
The Time Lord tribunal said that they would sentence the Doctor to two punishments: Exile on Earth during the late 20th century and an involuntary regeneration into a new, less-recognizable incarnation (Jon Pertwee).
