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

Peter Davison left the series in 1984 after three years following Patrick Troughton's advice to limit his tenure in order to avoid typecasting. He was also unhappy with some of John Nathan-Turner's production decisions. Davison admitted that he was dissatisfied with the quality of his second season and he told Nathan-Turner that his third season would be his last. However, he later said that he thought his third season turned out to be an improvement, but by then he had already made the decision to leave. See more »
For most of the Hartnell era, the episode title appeared superimposed over the first scene (after the title sequence had completed). Later, and continuing on occasion during the Troughton era, the episode title and writer credit would be presented in a unique format (i.e. in the form of a computer print-out for "The War Machine", for example). When the opening credits were redesigned during the Troughton era (and now incorporated an image of the Doctor's face), the episode title and writer credit were usually included during this sequence.

Doctor Who is the greatest series ever. I guess the reason why I love this show is because it is lots of fun as it take a story any place and any time period and make it work. That is why the classic series is so loved and that is why there was a lot of demand for it to come back in 2005. To the naysayers of Doctor Who, it is their loss and their problem why they do not get the appeal of Doctor Who. It is their problem and frankly it should never be mine and watching Doctor Who is the best viewing decision I have ever made.
It is often been said that Doctor Who could easily run forever (notwithstanding the gap between the "classic" and "new" series). That is because flexible in its format and it is that flexibility is why Doctor Who aficionados always stick with Doctor Who because it is worth sticking around for.
