In "The Mind Robber", which took place in the Land of Fiction. The Doctor is told that the man in charge of The Land of Fiction is called The Master. Although The Master did not make his debut in the series until 1971, it's possible, The Doctor may had thought The Master was his former friend turned nemesis, was behind The Land of Fiction. But, it did foreshadow The Master coming into the series three years later. See more »

A number of episodes in the 1960s did not feature William Hartnell as The Doctor. Despite this, he is still given lead actor credit on those episodes. See more »
Part Two of "Revelation Of The Daleks" was altered for its video release, removing the song "Fire" by The Jimi Hendrix Experience (which could not be used due to copyright problems) and replacing it with similar music, and also inserting a short scene of Peri running to the DJ's body. The problem of unclearable music has plagued Doctor Who release, with scenes on the DVD releases of "Spearhead From Space" and "Remembrance Of The Daleks" having to be re-dubbed to remove music by Fleetwood Mac and The Beatles respectively. Later UK DVD releases include the original music, after new music licensing regulations came into law. However, the audio release of the episode "The Evil Of The Daleks" had to be edited to remove two scenes throughout which Beatles songs could be heard. See more »
Doctor Who was my childhood. This show was, and still is, awesome. Right from the start, it was set apart from sci-fi shows at the time. This show was originally intended to be educational. But all that changed one fateful day in 1963. Yes, that's right, I'm talking about... the Daleks.
These monsters were one of the few things from sci-fi that could illicit pure, unadulterated terror in me. Other monsters eventually cropped up over the years, like the Cybermen, Sontarans, Silurians, Sea Devils, the Master, the list goes on...
In short, there is a reason this show has spawned countless spin- offs, a TV movie, and has lasted for 50 years.
It is because it is a staple of British television. Even cancellation couldn't stop this gem.
After 16 years in development hell, barring the aforementioned movie, Doctor Who returned.
