Doc is a character on ABC's Once Upon a Time. He is portrayed by David Paul Grove.



Doc is one of the seven dwarves that befriends Snow White, following the death of Stealthy. Doc, along with the other dwarves, stand by Snow White as she faces her stepmother, the tyrannical Queen Regina, who eventually casts the first Dark Curse, consuming everyone in the Enchanted Forest.

Season 1

Doc, along with everyone else taken by the curse, is transported to Storybrooke with no memories of the Enchanted Forest. However, Snow White and Prince David's daughter, Emma Swan, breaks the Dark Curse with true love's kiss, therefore bringing back everyone's memories of their true selves.

Season 2

With the curse broken, Doc and the other dwarves descend into the mines and mine fairy dust. Tensions rise when Sneezy crosses the town border and loses his memories, becoming cursed again.

Season 3

While Snow, Emma, David, Regina and the other heroes are away in Neverland rescuing Henry from Peter Pan's clutches, Doc and the other dwarves meet Ariel. They eventually return, unwittingly bringing Pan with them, who casts a second Dark Curse which sends everyone back to the Enchanted Forest. However, with the threat of the Wicked Witch of the West, Snow White casts a third Dark Curse that takes them all to Storybrooke once more.

Season 4

Doc and the other dwarves fall victim to the Spell of Shattered Sight, until it is broken.

Doc, Leroy and Happy go with Snow, David and Regina back to the Enchanted Forest in order to find Emma, who has become the new Dark One. However, six weeks after arriving in Camelot, they find themselves back in Storybrooke without their memories of their time in Camelot. After the fourth Dark Curse, cast by Hook - who is also a Dark One, is broken, Hook summons all the other Dark Ones from the Underworld. Several Dark Ones brand Doc and the other dwarves with the Mark of Charon, although the Dark Ones' plans are foiled when Emma and Hook are freed from the Dark One's curse.
