The Doctor

From The Brighton Toy and Model Index
Punch and Judy characters: Punch - Judy - The Baby - The Clown - The Constable - The Hangman - The Devil - The Crocodile - The Doctor - The Forgotten Characters


The Doctor is a minor character who doesn't appear regularly but has a long history in the show, being brought in by modern Professors if they choose.

His role in the story was to encounter Punch when he is worse for wear, either having fallen from his horse, being bitten by Toby the dog or frightened horribly by Judy's ghost. The Doctor will investigate Punch who will be pretending to be dead or overacting his injury in some way, eventually the Doctor will lose patience and begin to beat Punch with his stick only for Punch to spring up and return the favour (fatally).
