When Jon Pertwee took on the role, he said to the press that he would give the Doctor a more contemporary look. This included updating the character's attire. See more »
Whenever there is a closeup of the Fifth Doctor's open mouth, you can see Peter Davison's dental fillings, which a regenerated Time Lord would not have. See more »
You are indeed a worthy opponent, Doctor. It's what gives your destruction its... piquancy.

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 »
Many of the show's earlier episodes from the 1960s are only available in partial form. Some have been released to video with photos, audio tracks and narration filling the gaps. See more »
'Dr.Who' was the first television programme I got hooked on. It was 1968, when Patrick Troughton was the incumbent. The story, a repeat of 'Evil Of The Daleks', was the most incredible thing I'd ever seen. Wild horses couldn't have dragged me away from the set at the same time the following week. Dalekmania had passed by then, so I never got my toy, but I did get a Dalek colouring book on Christmas morning, as well as that year's 'Dr.Who' annual. As the '60's gave way to the '70's, my interest in the show intensified as Jon Pertwee and Tom Baker steered a successful course through the choppy seas of T.V. ratings. I started to lose interest in the '80's though, though that was probably my fault for growing up. When it ended in 1989, I wasn't surprised. Now its back - and a whole new generation of children are just as excited about 'Dr.Who' as I was back in 1968 - my enthusiasm has rekindled. We can all look back on the 1963/89 series as 'the classic years' even though as far as I'm concerned they're not over yet.
