Vincent Savage was the first audio incarnation of the Doctor, and played him from 1981-1983. His tenure saw the introduction of the Zylons, an insectoid race whose most recent appearance was in the Jeffrey Coburn-era story Target Zylon.
- Doomsday (1981; unreleased, non-canonical pilot serial)
- Portal (1982; Savage Doctor's real introduction story)
This incarnation was not given a proper "origin" story, so as to prevent continuity errors with the then-ongoing BBC series. He apparently comes after the BBC Doctors, so he may be from a timeline where the Doctor either survived past his 13th incarnation or died and was resurrected for some purpose.
- The Crucible of Terror (1983)
Many of the DWAD's fans ask if Vincent Savage is real, as he sounds like David Segal talking in a deep voice. What is known is that Mr. Savage only provides the voice. The picture is of Gary Conway.
Only one story has been released from Savage's tenure – Dreamscape (1982).
