Gharman tries to convince the Kaleds to vote against the Dalek project but Davros has a trick up his sleeve, while the Doctor works to destroy the tape recording of Dalek victory and the Thals plan ...
The Doctor is a renegade Time Lord: an eccentric, highly-intelligent scientist from a distant planet. He travels through time and space in the TARDIS, a curious device, larger on the inside than on the outside, which was designed to change its appearance to suit its surroundings. Unfortunately, the Doctor's TARDIS seems to be broken, and always appears as a blue British police box. The Doctor has a soft spot for the planet Earth, and often visits there, either to save it from various alien threats or to whisk a choice few inhabitants away to the distant parts of the galaxy to help him fight evil there. The Doctor has many foes, including Daleks (led by Davros), and The Master, another renegade Time Lord. Time Lord biology enables them to regenerate their bodies, and so both the Doctor and the Master appear to evolve over the years... Written by

According to co-star Peter Purves in an interview, the original actor to play the Doctor, William Hartnell, would have been very upset the BBC thought he could be replaced in the part because he had become so attached to it. Nevertheless, Hartnell is sometimes said to have approved of the casting of Patrick Troughton as his replacement because he respected him as an actor, although the decision as to who would follow him was made by series producer Innes Lloyd without Hartnell's input. The actors met each other when filming "The Tenth Planet", and Troughton was so excited to be playing the new Doctor Who, but also admitted to Hartnell that he was scared stiff and Hartnell told Troughton that he will be fine. In the 2013 drama An Adventure in Space and Time (2013), based on real life events in the early years of the series, Hartnell is told by the Head of Drama Sydney Newman that Troughton is to succeed him.

I think you'll find that most educated people regard mythical convictions as functionally animistic. Personally, I find most experiences border on the existential.

For the first several seasons, each individual chapter (episode) carried its own title. This practice was abandoned following the 1966 story "The Gunfighters." As a result, several early stories are known by several different titles. See more »
If there is one thing Doctor Who could teach the people of today, it would be "special effects do not make a movie/show". Movies and shows these days tend to rely more on special effects and less on plot. They're all show and little go. Doctor Who made up for it's lack of a high budget with it's strong plots and acting. I'd rather watch the all teeth and curls Tom Baker than watch the kid who played Anakin Skywalker in Phantom Menace. And I'd rather watch a pepperpot with a plunger sticking out of it repeating "Exterminate!" than watch Jar Jar "meesa no likea yous" Binks and the "extraordinary" fact that he's completely CGI.
