Symbol English doctor associated with the Parisian Metro at first (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

emblem

Here is my best explanation:

'symbol' is the definition.

(emblem is a kind of symbol)

'english doctor associated with the parisian metro at first' is the subsidiary indication.

'english' becomes 'e' (abbreviation).

'doctor' becomes 'mb' (Bachelor of Medicine, Medicinae Baccalaureus**).

'associated with' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).

'the parisian' becomes 'le' (definite article in French).

'at first' suggests taking the first letters.

The initial letter of 'metro' is 'm'.

'e'+'mb'+'le'+'m'='emblem'

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for emblem that I've seen before include "Device, badge or symbol", "Crest or symbol", "Typifying symbol", "Badge; symbol", "Representative object", "Badge, token", "Symbol or hallmark", "Crest or insignia", "Symbol, device that represents something" and "Badge or representative device".)
