Plot Summary 
On Skaro, The Daleks request the Doctor's help to travel down to a Dalek Prison and destroy the Asylum.

In Detail
The Doctor is lured to what is left of Skaro, home
 world of the Daleks by Darla Von Karlson, a servant of the Daleks who is also referred to as a puppet. Fitted with guns in the hand and an eyestalk from the 'forehead', she teleports him to the Parliament of the Daleks. Companions Amy and Rory have also been taken from Earth 2012 and have just  completed their divorce papers.

The Parliament is populated by Bronze daleks who have no rank, unlike the progenitor Daleks.
The Prime Minister who is a pure Dalek mutant in a glass case, tells them of a Dalek planet known as the Asylum, containing Daleks who are imperfect and insane battle scarred but are strong enough to escape the the force field around the planet. To prevent this, he sends Amy , Rory and the Doctor down to the Asylum to deactivate the force field, enabling the parliament to destroy the Dalek Prison.The Daleks say that they cannot kill them themselves as destroying such pure hatred would contravene with their sense of Beauty.
The Dalek Prime Minister: Such Beauty
The Parliament Of the Daleks.
The Parliament recieves a message from the centre of the Asylum, called the Habanera Aria .
The message is from Oswin Oswald,who was junior entertainment manager on the starship Alaska that crashed over a year ago. In that time she explains that she was defending herself from Dalek attacks and making souffles, although there is no explanation as to where she got the milk for the souffles.
The Alaska crashing into the planet, disturbed the force field, again risking the escape of thousands of mad Daleks.
The force field isn't damaged enough for the regular Daleks to begin their attack and it can only be disabled from inside the planet itself. To allow this to happen The Prime Minister, instructs the Three travelers to complete the task.

They are given special devices that go around their wrists and which protects them from the Nano cloud.
The Nano cloud ,when exposed to, kills, freezes, rots and then it reanimates the body to kill.
The Doctor and Amy on the asylum planet.
A portal in the Parliament sends them all to The Asylum, each in different places.
Amy and The Doctor land close to each other, however Rory is sent to the section of the Asylum which holds deactivated Daleks.
They start to wake but cannot speak properly forming only the sound "eggs"
Rory then finds one of the globes that usually fits on the lower slats on a Dalek.
He presumes them to be the "eggs " that the Dalek was muttering about. But then it wakes up fully, and Rory trips over something and the noise causes all the Daleks to animate themselves.
Rory in the Asylum Holding an 'egg'
Stupid Rory
The Doctor meanwhile finds what looks like a Dalek eyestalk showing outside of the snow covered area.
It turns out to be the Camera that Oswin uses to track the Doctor.

He then sees Amy and together the are guided to the Alaska by a survivor called Harvey.
However they discover that Harvey had really died and that his form was only maintained by the bracelet that protects people from the the nano cloud.
Now unprotected he becomes one of the other skeletons controlled by Daleks known as Dalek 'Puppets'. Like Darla, The skeletons have concealed weapons hidden in the hands and an eyestalk that stems out of the 'forehead'. The Alaska pod seems to be littered with corpses who are also puppets and who then become animated. They take Amy's bracelet and she begins to hallucinate and convert.
As an effect of the hallucinations: Amy begins to mistake Daleks for ordinary people and ballet dancers.
The Doctor suspects that as soon as the force field is deactivated, the Daleks will destroy the asylum and then he realises that Rory's hideout is a machine in which they can travel back to the Dalek's
parliamentary spacecraft. If the doctor saves Oswin's life, she will deactivate the force field as they return.
While waiting, Rory Tries to give his bracelet to Amy. As the Doctor had said that love would slow down the conversion, Rory states that he loved Amy more than she loved him and so would be converted more slowly but Amy argues that she had always loved him equally. However the Doctor had already sneaked his bracelet onto her and had only tried to get them to discuss things with each other. 
We then find out that when The Alaska crashed, the Daleks captured Oswin after she had reached the asylum and turned her into a Cyborg due to her 'dalek level' of intellect. As she is unable to cope with her conversion, her mind retreats into the fantasy that she is still a human.When the Doctor, now angry tries to tell Oswin, he asks her where she got the ingredients for the souffle However she is unable to kill the Doctor as she still retains some human emotions .
The Doctor learns the truth about Oswin.
Oswin keeps her promise and deactivates the force-field and asks in return, that the Doctor remember her as the human she once was..
Returning to Amy and Rory , they teleport back to the TARDIS to the Dalek Parliament, where the Daleks  class him as an intruder. It seems that when the planet containing the asylum was destroyed, every Daleks' memory of the Doctor was wiped, and as the Doctor departs, he delights in the Parliament's final question to him: "Doctor Who?"

The Eleventh Doctor

 Current Doctor, played by Matt Smith
First full appearance: The Eleventh Hour

The Eleventh Hour

 Having regenerated for the 10th time, the newly incarnated Doctor, crashes a damaged TARDIS into the garden of  seven year old Amelia Pond. The year is 1996.
Amelia tells the Doctor of a large crack in her bedroom wall, which the Time Lord examines only to realise that it is a crack through time and space itself.
Opening up the crack briefly, reveals an Atraxi prison and soon after, the Doctor receives a psychic message relaying that "Prisoner Zero has escaped".

 When the cloister bell from the TARDIS rings, the Doctor goes back to the time machine in order to fix it, telling Amelia that he will be back in five minutes.
Amelia packs her bags, ready to travel with the Doctor and waits patiently in the garden for his return.

Amy and Prisoner Zero
 The Doctor meanwhile, having thought that he had only been away for 5 minutes, actually returns 12 years later. As he searches the house for Amelia, he is knocked unconscious and handcuffed to a radiator. When he awakens, he finds that his assailant is a now grown Amy Pond, who doesn't recognize him.
Unwilling to believe who he is, having spent the last few years being being ridiculed by the village for her tales of the Raggedy Doctor, it becomes obvious that there is something in the house.
Retreiving the Doctor's Sonic Screwdriver, which had fallen when he was attacked by Amy, they escape and flee the house.

The Atraxi
 Very soon the Atraxi arrives and threatned that if Prisoner Zero is not returned, then Earth will be destroyed. The Doctor now has a few hours, to find the Prisoner. This does not prove easy as the Prisoner is a 'Multiform', able to take the form of those who are unconcious, his first victims being the coma patients at a hospital where Amy's boyfriend Rory works as a nurse.

Borrowing a laptop and interrupting an online meeting of several scientific experts, the Doctor relays some instructions to them before rushing to the hospital and rescuing Amy and Rory from Prisoner Zero.
The Doctor outlines his plan, which is that he has created a virus that will broadcast the the number zero, around the globe. This is connected with Rory's phone which contaims images of the coma patients that he had previously taken.
However Prisoner Zero knocks out Amy and  having been in her childhood home whilst she was growing up, creating a kind of bond, adopts the form of the much younger Amelia as well as the Doctor.

The Doctor giving the Atraxi a good telling off.
 The real Doctor manipulates her subconcious into remembering what she had seen in the house which reveals Prisoner Zero's true identity. Having now been located by the Atraxi, they take him away (after he tells the Doctor that "silence will fall") but not before the Doctors calls them back and tells them that others have also invaded and threatened Earth and have not been successful, making it sound as though they had been defeated by him.

With the Atraxi gone, the Doctor goes back to the TARDIS and leaves before Rory and Amy have had a chance to say goodbye. On his return to Amy's house, he finds that another two years has passed.
Still angry with him, Amy decides to travel with the Doctor but only if he returns her the next day. The Doctor agrees saying that he chose her because he is lonely but really it's because he wants to keep an eye on the crack that still appears in Amy's bedroom wall.

Retreating back to the flat, they they find themselves then attacked by a Christmas tree.
The Doctor wakes just in time to disable the tree with his sonic screwdriver, before falling back into unconsciousness.
We later discover that the robotic Santas are pilot fish, extraterrestrial robots who have marked the imminent appearance of a much greater force and are lured to earth by the energy of the Doctor's regeneration

The video it returns to Earth is broadcast to the world and this leads people to believe that life actually exists a on Mars.

The Sycorax
 The aliens hypnotize those humans who are blood type A+, roughly one third of the population,  whom then find themselves standing on the edge of of the tallest buildings. The aliens threaten to kill all by sending a signal to the humans, which would in affect, make them step off the buildings to their deaths, if they are not given half of the world's population as slaves.

The alien ship transports the TARDIS which carries Mickey, Rose and a still unconscious Doctor and when the Time Lord is  revived,  (via tea ) the aliens reveal themselves to be Sycorax,  alien fighters who wear the bones of there enemies on  their armour and wear masks also made from bones.
In his newly revived state, the Doctor challenges the Sycorax leader to a duel.
During the swordfight, the Sycorax leader cuts off the doctor's hand, though as he is still in the first few hours of his regeneration, the energy grows allows the Doctor another hand.
The Doctor wins the fight and convinces the Sycorax to leave Earth and never return. Back on Earth, Harriet Jones is not convinced that they will not return and against the Doctor's wishes, gets in touch with a secret organisation called Tourchwood who blow up the Sycorax ship.

Final Episode:

The Doctor arrives on the Ood-sphere where he encounters the  Elder.
They tell him that the Master is returning, heralding an event such as the end of time itself.
On Earth 2009 A cult of people loyal to The Master, use a the time lord ring to bring about the Master's ressurection. But the ceremony is interrupted by his wife Lucy Saxon and although the resurrection has worked, the Master becomes erratically more unstable, feasting on any flesh and meat available to him. He now has developed superhuman strength and can project powerful energy beams from his Hands.

The Doctor, while tracking the Master to Earth, encounters Wilfred Mott, Grandfather of former companion Donna Noble and tells him of the Ood prophecy that his song is ending, meaning that soon he is to die.
The Master is taken in by Billionaire Joshua Naismith whose home houses a healing machine called the Immortality Gate.
However the Master amplifies it's power to renew everyone on Earth to have the exact same face and mind as the himself.

The Master uses the power of the gate.

Meanwhile, Wilfred is followed by a mysterious woman dressed in white before he joins the Doctor on a journey to finally trap the Master. Here they discover the secret of the Immortality Gate.
The engineers of the gate are Green Cacti-like aliens called the Vinvocci  (only slightly different to the short red Vocci)

After the Master has cloned himself, both the Doctor and Wilf are saved by the Vincocci. while the Time Lord president, Rassilson receives a prophecy about the future of the time war.
The Master programs the Immortality Gate with his DNA and uses it to turn everyone into 'The Master race'. Everyone on Earth is infected except Wilf as he is shielded from the effects, his granddaughter Donna, who had previously been part time lord- part human and the Doctor himself.

The Vivocci
 The Doctor and Wilf take refuge on the Vinvocci ship while it orbits the earth. But it would appear that when the Master was a child, Rassilon had implanted a signal inside his head, which is the drumming noise that he has been hearing his entire life. Rassilon then sends out a white point star from Galifrey to the Master, to increase connection between  present day Earth and the Time-locked Galifrey.
When the rest of Time Lords eventually arrive on Earth at the Immortality Gate, the Doctor deciding whether to kill Rassilon or the Master, shoots the white point star with the gun that Wilf had previously given to him. The Doctor recognises the woman dressed in white among the Time-Lords but her identity is never revealed. (His mother perhaps?)

Time Lord President, Rassilon

Rassilon tries to kill the Doctor but the Master interferes and sacrifices himself to destroy Rassilon out of revenge.
The Time Lords, Galifrey and the Master are then sent back into the Time locked Galifrey.
 Finally the Doctor notices Wilfred trapped in one of the booths that controls the immortality Gate which is now flooded with radiation. He opens it but can only do this from inside.
When he does this, the radiation floods into his body and weakens him. After the day's events, he takes Wilf back home as everyone returns back to normal.
Before he regenerates, he re- visits his previous companions as a last goodbye and as he regenerates, manages to destroy most of the TARDIS. Once fully regenerated, the new Doctor checks himself before suddenly realizing that the TARDIS is hurtling back down towards London.

When the TARDIS dematerialises and a transmat beam absorbs Rose, the Doctor, Mickey and a time agent from the 52nd century, (Captain Jack Harkness)  they find themselves unwillilingly forced to  take part in a series of gruesome  reality shows on, Satelite 5. Satelite 5 used to be a news station, open to the public and broadcasted news all over Planet Earth. But now it is a game station, where the ultimate prize is survival.
Rose is chosen to take part in the 'Weakest Link', where the host is a robot called the Anne-droid.

Lynda, meanwhile keeps watch and listens as the Daleks invade. She hears the screams and cries of contestants, as whole contries and continents are annihilated. Lynda herself is exterminated, when a Dalek appears at the window and blasts it open.

Monitors are killed when they try to destroy the Daleks and the Doctor sends rose back to Earth in the TARDIS, with a holographic message stating that if she is viewing the image, then he is no longer alive, or is dying.

Refusing to accept this and with the help of both Micky and Jackie, they help Rose to get into the TARDIS where she stares into the heart of it, absorbing countless amounts of unimaginable, power. she returns to the game station and turns every single Dalek to dust including the space ships and the Emperor.  As the power begins to destroys her, the Doctor absorbes the energy by kissing her but it kills him, as Rose watches in horror.

the Eighth Doctor

Paul Mcgann

On Skaro, the Master is put on trial by the Daleks and found guilty of a number of evil crimes. He is executed but before his death, his last  request was for the Doctor to take his remains back to his home planet of Galifrey.
Relaxing In his newly designed TARDIS and with the Master's remain on-board, things start to go wrong for the Doctor.
The case in which the Master's remains are stored, breaks open and a Sentient, a serpent like form, escapes from it. The form then enters the TARDIS control and changes the co-ordinates, steering them towards Earth.
The TARDIS land in San-Francisco, America, on New Years Eve 1999, where late at night, Chinese Gangs fight each other.
The Doctor is unfortunate enough to land where the gangs are present, and is shot through the shoulder. Chang-Lee, the only survivor of his gang, calls an ambulance
At the Hospital, an x-ray discovers that the Doctor has two hearts but the medics believe that it is just double exposure. When the operation goes wrong, they call in special Cardiologist, Grace Holloway but half-way through a cardiac probe, the Doctor wakes up and tells Grace that he needs a beryllium atomic clock before then dying. He is pronounced dead and placed in a Morgue,where during the night, he regenerates.

Meanwhile Chang-Lee having stolen the Doctor's  possessions, finds the key to the TARDIS and sees the Master standing there in his newly acquired body. He tells the gullible Chang that everything in the TARDIS was his and that the Doctor stole his bodies and his past lives.
He uses Chang to try and open the Eye of  Harmony within the TARDIS, an object that could destroy the whole universe when opened.

The Doctor still a little confused from regenerating, begins to remember sections of time before his renewal took place and finding and recognising Grace Holloway in a lift,  follows her to her car.
 Grace examines the Doctor's Heartbeat realising that he does indeed have two hearts and finally his starts to piece together who he really is.
Knowing that the Eye Of Harmony is opening and it's affects, the Doctor confides in Grace, who at first, doesn't believe him until he proves it by pushing through glass, stating that the structure of things is weakening and that they have until midnight, or the universe will be sucked into the Eye of Harmony.

They try using an ambulance to get to the Institute of Technological Advancement  And Research but the ambulance is driven by Chang and the Master who the Doctor has not yet recognised. The Doctor and Grace escape and steal a police motorbike. When they arrive at the Institute, (ITAR) the Doctor is able to collect the integrated circuit chip from the Millennium clock, the most accurate clock in the world and escape back to the TARDIS to install the chip in order to stop the clock from opening. The Master enters the TARDIS, and hypnotizes Grace to knock unconscious the Doctor, who is then chained above the Eye, so that the Master can steal his remaining regenerations. When Chang aware now of the Master's lies, refuses to open the Eye, he is killed.

The Eye Of Harmony has until midnight to open and it half-succeeds. Grace, no longer under the hypnotism of the Master, tries to help the Doctor but is killed when the Master throws her over a balcony.  This action gives the Doctor enough time to throw the Master into the Eye and as it absorbs him, the Eye closes and the TARDIS resurrects both Chang-Lee and Grace. They says a final  Goodbye, after Grace turns down the Doctor's offer to travel with him and he heads back to the TARDIS for a new adventure.

The Sixth Doctor

First Episode: The Twin Dilemma
Last Episode: The Trial Of A Time Lord

After regenerating the Doctor loses control and tries to kill his companion Peri, quoting that 'In ancient Persian mythology, a Peri is a fairy that is not only good and beautiful but is also known for it's evil'.

 Twins geniuses Romulus and Remus Sylvest,  receive a call from an old man by the name of Proffesor Edgeworth, who then kidnaps the pair and takes them to a base located on a spacecraft run by Gastropod, slug-like creatures. The leader of this race, Mestor, tells Edgeworth to take the Twins to Titan III, another planet, as he wants to use the twins as part of his dastardly scheme.
The father of the twins contacts the authorities who send in commander Hugo Lang, who finds Zanium in the twin's rooms, which is a sign of intergalactic kidnap.

 Lang's ship enters warp speed which it is not equipped to do and it crashes on Titan III, where the TARDIS has also landed and the Doctor is recovering from his previous regeneration..
The Doctor and Peri try to help Lang, who at first, believes them to be enemies.

On Jaconda, Mestor's home planet, he intends on causing an enormous explosion to spread his eggs throughout the Galaxy and  for this, he needs the twins to solve the necessary equation needed.
The Doctor and Peri try to prevent Mestor's plan from commencing, when the Doctor recognises Edgeworth as a Time Lord called Azmael, who used to be his friend on Galifrey.
Azmael however, kills himself in the process of killing Mestor and freeing his prisoners along with the twins.

The Doctor stands trial


The Time Lords take the Doctor out of time and place him on a Galifreyan trial ship.
Although not knowing why he has been brought there, the news that he may stand trial, does not come as a large surprise to him.
He is found guilty of interfering too much with the affairs of other planets and species and 'unbecoming' a Time Lord.
While The Inquisitor takes notes and observes, the Valeyard, who is comprised of the darker aspects of the Doctor's character, supplies knowledge from the greatest power and information databank in the universe,  known as the Matrix.
The first piece of evidence shown, deals with the affairs of the planet Ravalox.
This is where along with Peri, the Doctor discovers that Ravalox is in fact Earth shifted from it's original position in the solar system and that it has almost been completely destroyed by a fire that has been raging for over a thousand years. Two Rogue criminals, Sabalom Glitz and Dibber arrive on Ravalax to retrieve a series of data  hidden by a race of Andromedans called The Sleepers.
The planet is inhabited by the Tribe of The Free, a group of humans led by Queen Katryca who believes that a space article is in fact a sacred object from the Gods. Another tribe who call themselves the Underground Dwellers, believe in the 'Three Sacred Books and worship the element of water, as they believe it is the last source of liquid since the fireball struck earth. All live in fear of the immortal one, Drathro, a robot who lives in secret with the dwellers and depends entirely on the 'Black Light' that the space object provides. The Doctor and Peri,, assisted by a dweller, members of the tribe of The Free and Drathros' human assistants, manage to destroy the robot.
The trial has now officially begun...


Arriving on Thoros-Beta, Peri and they Doctor encounter Sil, a slimy, and short hostile alien whom they have met  before and here, they are accused of killing the Raak, an experimental creature created by a scientist named Crozier.
With Sil not believing the Doctor had nothing to do with the murder, he links him up to One Of Croziers machines to extract the truth from the Time Lord. But it alters the Doctor's mind, causing him to become hostile to all those around him, including Peri and  he soon finds himself becoming an ally of the Mentors, Sil's fellow species.
 This process wakes King Yrcanos, a warrior of the Krontep who was also one of Croziers tests.
The King and Peri ally themselves to stop both the Doctor and the Mentors, after the Time Lord tries to kill Peri by dragging her outside and chaining her to the Rocks of Sorrow. Sil's Superior Lord Kiv is weakening and Crozier discovers that he needs a new body. He makes an agreement that in order to save possible embarrassment, he would have Sil killed and use the body of Peri. 
The transfer is a success but Yrcanos kills himself and Peri to save everyone else.
It has not yet been discovered that the scenes at the trial and the Doctors part in them, has largely been distorted by the Valeyard. And so the trial continues.

The Doctor and Mel meet the Vervoids.

Struck by grief over the death of Peri, the Doctor is given a chance to present his version of evidence, which takes place on the space cruise liner, the HYPERION III. The Doctor and Melanie Bush, a  techno genius, receive a distress call emitting from Hyperion III, but when they arrive, they find that the May-day call was faked.
When security officer Rudge brings the Doctor and Mel to Commodore Travers, he reports that since his arrival, a man has already died.
Although they have have met before, the Commodore confines them to passenger quarters, where a species called Mogarians are homed, as their planet, Mogar is close to the ship.
Mel, while in the gym recieves a mysterious message and goes to investigate. She enters the cargo hold, where she meets, Edwards, a communications officer and asks him to show her around.
They enter a chamber where only sunlight is allowed and where mysterious pods are stored. These pods were found by Proffessor Lasky, another passenger.
When Edwards goes to enter the into the room, he is electrocuted and drops to the ground dead and an alien hand bursts out of one of the pods.
The Doctor, Mel, Lasky and the Commodore discover that the plant-like creatures in the Pods, Vervoids, have escaped. Rudge tries to steer the ship into the Black hole of Tartarus as he is working for the Vervoids. The Doctor uses Vionesium, a virus that destroys plant life, to kill the Vervoids and stop their plan from reaching earth and killing all of "Animal kind". The Doctor finds that he has no choice  but to wipe out the whole species of Vervoids, using the Magnesium.
But although he saves humanity, the Time Lords disapprove and the Valeyard charges him with  Article 7 of Galifereyan Law- Genocide...

The Valeyard- The Doctor's darker side

With no more evidence, the Time Lords call upon two witnesses to help the Doctors case, Melanie, and Sabalom Glitz who helped the Doctor on Ravalox, despite Glitz's criminal nature.
The Master than reveals himself to have been tampering with the Matrix, which is a serious crime and here's where we find out that the Valeyard is in fact the Doctor's darker side, somewhere in-between his twelfth and final incarnations. (Like the Dream Lord)
Glitz gives evidence that the reason he was on Ravalox was to retrieve data that had been stolen by the Andromedan Sleepers. The Time Lords then tracks the Sleepers to their secret base on Earth and drag the planet across time and space, almost annihilating all life in the process.
The Doctor and Glitz try to stop the Valeyard and the Master by entering the fictional virtual reality of the Matrix.
They come across the Fantasy Factory, the workplace of a Mr Popplewick who is assisted by Mr JJ Chambers, who turns out to be the Valeyard in disguise.
Bribed by the Master with the secrets he was looking for on Ravalox to lead the Doctor to the Valeyard, Glitz returns to the Fantasy Factory and there he finds the Master.  Mr Popplewick catches him and Glitz persuades him to lead him and the Doctor to Chambers. Glitz escapes with the data to the Master's TARDIS. In a fake version of the trial room, the Doctor is taken to face the charges of Genocide but his plan is prevented when the real Mel stops him from going.
Mr Popplewick turns out to be the Valeyard in yet another disguise, who is hiding a 'particle disseminator', a device that scatters particles. The Doctor blows up the Fantasy Factory and when the Matrix screen explodes, Mel saves the Time Lord from being killed.

. The Doctor destroyes the Valeyard and escapes saving the rest of the Time Lords from the Valeyard's plan. The Inquisitor offers the Doctor the chance to become president of Galifrey but he refuses and decides that the Inquisitor should take the role herself. She tells the Doctor that Peri survived and married King Yrcanos.
As the Doctor and Mel leave and the Inquisitor and other Time Lords depart, she gives orders to the keeper of the Matrix... the Valeyard...

Colin Baker's Regeneration scene was really meant to take place in the following story 'Time and the Rani' but he was fired before this could take place. This meant that this is his actual last story, as Sylvester McCoy, the seventh Doctor dressed up as Baker and filmed his own regeneration at the epilogue of episode one of 'Time and the Rani'.

Thank you Everyone!

Evil snowman says 'thank you'.
Hello everybody! (I sound like Doctor Nick from the Simpsons) Before I continue, I want to say thank you to everyone who has followed me. I'm so happy to have so many people read this blog in such a short time. (Except you mother. I know you're stalking my blog) Thank you also for all the comments. I've been told by mother to 'be normal' when replying, so I will try my best not to sound like a "pompous twit," though "twit" isn't really the word she used. (She's so rude sometimes. Actually she's rude most of the time) So once again, thanks. (Go away mother, you're stifling my creativity)

The Doctor makes the people aware that the Master, their leader, has used a perception filter to not only control them but also to hide his identity. When the people of Castrovalva rise up against him and break free, they are able to finally defeat the Master.

With all original companions gone, the Doctor and an American woman named Peri, arrive on the desolate planet of Androzani Minor, an empty place where the inhabitants are at war with the people from the twin Planet Androzani Major. This is over a rare form of liquid called Spectrox, which increases the life span of whoever uses it. However Spectrox also comes in a more dangerous strain called Spectrox Nest, which is Spectrox in it's raw form.
 When coming into contact with this highly lethal substance, the liquid causes Spectrox toxemia, from which the side effects are cramps, spasms, rashes and death. Unfortunately Peri falls into the Spectrox Nest and both she and the Doctor, develop the Toxemia.
When they later encounter Sharaz Jek, a humanoid  destroyed by the common mud bursts on Androzani Minor, he helps them (mainly because he fancies Peri) to find the cure, which is actually the milk from a queen bat, but there is only enough for Peri.
With Jek dead, shot by a military officer on Minor, the Doctor collapses ontoj the floor of the TARDIS, still having been infected with the toxemia and as Peri recovers, watches as he changes form.

The Second Doctor

Patrick Troughton
First appearance: The Power Of The Daleks 1966
Last appearance: The War Games 1969

After Barbara Wright and Ian Chesterton are bought back to earth, the Doctor is joined by two new companions, Ben and Polly.
They are both present when he regenerates into a much younger man, played here by Patrick Troughton.
Having witnessed his renewal, Polly and Ben are unsure of how to act towards the Doctor and it's is only when a Dalek recognises him, that they finally begin to accept that it is really him.

In this first episode 'The Power Of The Daleks,' we see all three land on the planet Vulcan, where the Doctor is mistaken for an official of earth.
The Doctor soon finds out that a scientist by the name of Lesterton, is trying to bring back the Daleks after discovering them in a space capsule which had crashed.
The people of Vulcan ignore his warnings about the dangers posed by the Daleks, as they begin the process of reproducing themselves in order to take over the colony.

 In this form the Doctor is a portrayed as a warm comedic character and has already fought Daleks, Cybermen, Yeti and even his own people the Time Lords. This second incarnation of the Doctor is  always being kidnapped or threatened. But is was during the war Games where he met his end. Charged with breaking one of the main laws of Galifrey, which was to never interfere with the affairs of other species and planets, the Time Lords put him on trial. Found guilty, they force the Doctor to opt for a new appearance, eventually choosing one for him when he becomes to picky, take away 'the secret of the TARDIS' (Disabling his to travel in it) and exile him to earth, a planet that he understands.

The Movie Doctor, Peter Cushing

Peter Cushing played the Doctor in two movies during the sixties.

In the 1960s, there were two movie versions of Doctor Who, starring Peter Cushing in the main role.
The first was in 1965 and entitled 'Dr Who And The Daleks. This film saw the Doctor travel through time and space in his new invention, the TARDIS. (Time And Relative Dimensions In Space)
Along with his companions, grand-daughter Susan, Barbara Wright and Ian Chesterton, they find themselves materializing on the planet Skaro.

The planet is suffering from a nuclear fallout, where the inhabitants of this world are deformed mutated lifeforms who have incased themselves within metal shells in order to survive. These are the Daleks.
The Doctor and his three companions have found themselves in the middle of a war with the planet's other inhabitants, the Thals, a peaceful, humanoid species. The Daleks aim to annihilate the Thals by detonating a neutron bomb and only the Doctor can help save them.

Daleks-Invasion Earth 2150 AD

Dalek-Invasion Earth 2150 AD, is the second in the Doctor Who Movie featuring Peter Cushing.
The Doctor travels to the year 2150 AD, where planet earth is being invaded by the Daleks who are trying to turn all humans into Robomen.
An underground resistance movement and the Doctor, are the only obstacles that stands in their way.

The First Doctor

William Hartnell
First appearance : An Unearthly Child 1963
Last appearance: The Tenth Planet 1966

William Hartnell made his debut appearance as the Doctor, in an episode entitled 'An Unearthly Child', which is also where we first meet his grand-daughter Susan Foreman. 
At school, Susan's teachers, Ian Chesterton and Barbara Wright, appear curious as to her vast knowledge about the past as well as the future and one day follow her home.
All they find however, is an old junkyard in which stands a police telephone box. Eventually they meet an old man who introduces himself as Susan's grandfather (the Doctor) and the two become unwilling companions as the adventure begins.
In this episode, they are transported back to the Stone Age where they encounter prehistoric cavemen.
When Returning to the TARDIS, the Doctor encounters his deadliest enemy yet, the Daleks. Having become exposed to radiation which leaves his body constantly weak and after destroying Mondas, original home of the Cybermen, it becomes too much for the Doctor. His body starts to deteriorate and with new companions Ben and Polly watching inside the TARDIS, slowly the Doctor's features start to fade away into the form of another.

3 January 2013


 Welcome to my blog, as I explore the wonders of the Whoniverse. But first, an introduction.                          
I'm an eccentric schoolboy with a passion for all things to do with Doctor Who.
My fascination begun at the tender age of four, watching the Autons as they tried to invade earth and not surprisingly, it scared the life out of me. That particular episode heralded an introduction to a new kind of Doctor, a much darker, broodier Timelord then the ones that had gone before...and oh yeah, he had a Northern accent.

 Christopher Ecclestone became the 9th Doctor after an absence of nine years, in an episode entitled 'Rose' which also featured a big toothed Billie Piper, who was soon to become his companion.
Since then, I have been a major fan of not just the modern episodes but also the ones dating back to William Hartnell (1963) and Peter Cushing in the 1965-1966 films 'Dr Who and the Daleks' and 'Daleks Invasion Earth 2150 AD'.

This blog will explore various themes, starting with the many faces of the Doctor and the numerous companions that accompanied the him on his many adventures through time and space. Through to the changing faces of such characters as The Master and K9, Spaceships featured, interior designs of the Tardis, aliens and monsters and much more.
