From six to sixty, they all loved him ... the man who brought Dr. Who into the universe.

With his white wig and monocle, the cranky scientist was compulsive viewing to 15 million "children."

But yesterday came the final fade-out for actor William Hartnell, the first man in the "Dr. Who" role, launched on BBC television in 1963. He died in hospital near his home in Marden, Kent aged 67.

He had been ill for about three years.

But Hartnell made a huge success of his science fiction role - predicted to last only six weeks - and completely lost his own identity in it.
