@HipsterDad: I remember seeing a Troughton episode where the Doctor and Jamie were captured by, I think, aliens invading the alien planet the Tardis had landed on. The invaders picked up the Doctor and Jamie; the Doctor quickly assumed the persona of a not-very-bright “native alien” and implied he and Jamie were a separate “native alien” species than the locals. The invaders body-scanned Jamie, determined, Hmmm, yeah, he’s not the same species as the other locals and his brain is primitive, and didn’t bother scanning the Doctor, apparently assuming that they would get the same result.

Not an on-screen medical checkup – in fact, just the opposite, as it neatly avoided the Doctor getting “discovered”.

I wish I could remember what episode that was, but it’s probably been twenty years or more since I saw it. I don’t even remember what the other companion’s name was, though I’m sure there was another one besides Jamie.

Sounds like The Dominators. The other companion for that story was Zoe.
