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

The Dalek Master Plan, The War Games, The Key to Time and The Trial of a Time Lord are the longest stories in the original series that have more than 6 - 7 episodes. The Dalek Master Plan had 12 episodes, The War Games had 10 episodes, The Key to Time had 26 episodes and The Trial of a Time Lord had 14 episodes. The Key to Time (Season 16) and The Trial of a Time Lord (Season 23) were all one story with a recurring story-arc. In Season 16, The Fourth Doctor, Romana 1 and K9 II are sent on a quest by The White Guardian to seek and retrieve the six segments to the Key to Time and in Season 23, The Sixth Doctor is again put on trial by the Time Lords, which recorded footage from the Doctor's past, present and future are shown and used as evidence against The Doctor, whom stands accused of interfering with the affair of other planets.

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.

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.
