Here's my review of Lucifer: Revelation, the second in Paul Darrow's Big Finish trilogy of Blake's 7 novels:
So in the first episode of Doctor Who, An Unearthly Child, the Doctor says he's from another time and another planet, but that doesn't mean he couldn't be human.
Also, having special abilities isn't a confirmation of being alien. Like Steven says, Spiderman has special abilities but he's human.
I can think of a few instances of the Doctor saying he's not human, or others of him (eg. Tom Baker in Pyramids of Mars: "I'm not human, I walk in eternity"), but when was the first time? Apparently the answer is surprising.
