Doctor Who the compleat Run down

Post by Shinji Ikari » Sun Jun 05, 2005 10:11 pm

Right a bit about the 1st Doctor
Doctor Who was launched in 1963 at the hands of television veterans Verity Lambert, Mervyn Pinfield, Sydney Newman and Donald Wilson. Ostensibly created as a children's program for the fall 1963 television schedule, Doctor Who was commissioned for 13 episodes and was never expected to continue for much longer. Thanks to the right circumstances at the right time -- terrific casting, clever writing, strong production values, state-of-the-art techniques, and these tin-plated pepperpots that shouted "Exterminate!" -- that expectation was quickly overturned, and the programme soon became one of Britain's most cherished and beloved television legends.

William Hartnell, a crotchety actor known for his versatility in a wide range of stage, television and film roles, was chosen as the Doctor, a role he would play for nearly three and a half years. Carole Ann Ford (Susan), William Russell (Ian) and Jacqueline Hill (Barbara) would join him as the weary travelers in the London Police Box whisked about on adventures through the cosmos. All three would eventually leave by the end of the second season, to be replaced by cast members Maureen O'Brien (Vicki), Peter Purves (Steven Taylor), Adrienne Hill (Katarina), Jean Marsh (Sara Kingdom), Jackie Lane (Dodo), Anneke Wills (Polly) and Michael Craze (Ben Jackson).

Historical adventures were the staple of these early days; trips to Marco Polo's China, Palestine, the Aztec Empire, revolutionary France, ancient Greece and Rome, and even the Old West were among the travelers' many journeys. These were balanced by trips to far-off alien worlds, damaged spaceships and empires of exotic lands -- as well as trips to present and future Earth, wherein lay the Doctor's most devastating enemies: the vicious Daleks and the cold and calculating Cybermen. These first days laid the foundation for the mythos of Doctor Who; at this time, he was still an enigma, a mysterious traveler from an unknown time who was on the run from his own people. Not a clue to be found to bely his unique history and civilization.

Hartnell left the role in 1966 at the height of the series' popularity, handing off the lead to Patrick Troughton. He continued to make appearances for several years, including a return to the series in 1973's "The Three Doctors" before his untimely death in 1976. Much of the era still exists, despite the BBC's purges of the mid-1970's; many episodes were found in unlikely locations domestically and overseas.

Doctor Who the compleat Run down

Post by Shinji Ikari » Mon Jun 06, 2005 10:32 am

ok heres the 2nd Doctor Run down
In 1966, the unprecedented occurred:the popular William Hartnell left Doctor Who, and a man named Patrick Troughton took over the role. He was absolutely nothing like the crotchety old Doctor viewers knew well -- this new incarnation was feisty, mysterious and occasionally prone to fits of hysteria. The series was changing, and the viewers were along for a wild ride. Troughton was immediately a new type of Doctor -- much more hands-on, more physical, and more prone to slapstick. To that end, in his second adventure, he gained the services of Jamie MacCrimmon (Frazer Hines), a young Scottish soldier who would see him through to the bitter end, joining the travels with Ben and Polly (Michael Craze and Anneke Wills), who witnessed the transformation. Along the way, Ben and Polly would depart his company, only to be replaced by two very independent young ladies from different backgrounds: 19th century socialite Victoria Waterfield (Deborah Watling) and futuristic scientist Zoe Heriot (Wendy Padbury).

Along the way, the second Doctor faced terrifying monsters and alien adversaries. The Daleks and the Cybermen returned to haunt his travels, and we were introduced to new threats: the fiendish Great Intelligence and its horrific servants, the Yeti; the conniving Martian soldiers, the Ice Warriors; the savage Macra; and the cruel Dominators. The Doctor also spent a good deal of time on Earth, be it in the Himalayas of the early 20th century, the wiles of Victorian London, or the plains of Culloden on the Scottish moors. He would face a duplicate of himself bent on world domination, a mad scientist plotting to destroy ancient Atlantis, and a strange Land of Fiction which bent to the whims of its guests. But it was back in 1960's London that the Doctor joined forces with a man whose destiny would be forever intertwined with his own: Alastair Lethbridge-Stewart (Nicholas Courtney), soon to become a Brigadier of the newly created United Nations Intelligence Taskforce, or UNIT for short.

And at the end of his travels, viewers would get their first glimpse of the Doctor's mysterious origins and his complicated past, as he is forced to call upon his own people -- the Time Lords -- in a bid to save his friends and countless innocents caught up in a brutal alien war game. Put on trial for his actions, as depicted in the series' first six seasons, he would soon be exiled to Earth and regenerated into his successor, Jon Pertwee. Troughton would later return for several appearances alongside Pertwee, William Hartnell, Peter Davison and Colin Baker, before his tragic death at an overseas convention in early 1987.

Sadly, the Troughton era of Doctor Who is hugely notable for what does not exist as opposed to what does; only one story in Troughton's first two seasons exists in its entirety, ten stories only exist partially (most with one or two episodes out of 4 or 6), and four are lost in their entirety, including his first story, "The Power of the Daleks"; Jamie's first adventure, "The Highlanders"; and "Fury From the Deep," considered by many to be one of the greatest serials of the program in the 1960's. The search continues...

Right the 3rd Doctor
1970 marked the beginning of a new era for Doctor Who. Gone was the outer space adventure; gone was the slapstick; and gone was the monochrome simplicity of the Sixties. From the moment the seventh season began, it was clear this was the dawn of a new age: a panoramic shot of space that ended upon the Earth. It was a symbol that the series was moving... and move it did. Jon Pertwee had assumed the role, the series had gone color, and it would never be the same again.

Whereas William Hartnell had created the role as a feisty explorer, and Patrick Troughton succeeded him as a more energetic intergalactic hobo, Pertwee stepped into the role as a professor, a bon vivant, the otherworldly version of James Bond. For five seasons, he played the role as a mentor -- beginning an exile sentenced upon him by the Time Lords by allying himself with the United Nations Intelligence Taskforce (UNIT) and its military advisor Brigadier Alastair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart (Nicholas Courtney), both introduced during the Troughton era. Joining with the Brigadier were Sergeant John Benton (John Levene) and Captain Mike Yates (Richard Franklin); the three would aid the Doctor in his battles against the alien forces of evil. And of course, the companions... eminent scientist Dr. Elizabeth Shaw (Caroline John), agent-in-training Josephine "Jo" Grant (Katy Manning) and intrepid Metropolitan Magazine reporter Sarah Jane Smith (Elisabeth Sladen).

And of course, there was one other addition. Any good hero must have his villain, like Moriarty to Sherlock Holmes. He came in the form of the Master (Roger Delgado), a Time Lord bent upon evil, who would tangle with the Doctor and UNIT on many an occasion. Together with the Doctor, his companion and the UNIT men, they would comprise the largest regular cast in the show's history, centered mostly upon Pertwee's eighth, ninth and tenth seasons. (Plans for further revelations about the Master, and his relationship to the Doctor, would be waylaid for some time upon the tragic death of Delgado in a car accident in Turkey in 1973).

The exile would be lifted by the Doctor's people in "The Three Doctors" (and later, in "The Time Warrior," their homeworld would be mentioned for the first time: Gallifrey), but the Doctor continued his aid to UNIT and his adoptive planet for far longer. The vicious Daleks would return, and the show would introduce many new popular alien species: the Autons; the Silurians and their cousins, the Sea Devils; the Sontarans; the Ogrons; and the Draconians. Pertwee would reign as a popular Doctor, leaving the show in the care of his successor Tom Baker in 1974, yet returning several times for the 20th anniversary story "The Five Doctors," reprising his role in the stage play "The Ultimate Adventure," joining the Children in Need adventure "Dimensions in Time" and recording two BBC Radio dramas, "The Paradise of Death" and "The Ghosts of N-Space." Fans were shocked when Pertwee sadly passed away while on holiday in New York in May 1996.

Doctor Who the compleat Run down

Post by Shinji Ikari » Wed Jun 08, 2005 4:25 pm

now for the 4th Doctor
And then there was Tom. Tom Baker, recognized across the world as the quintessential Doctor Who; a mainstay of British television for seven years, the Doctor as far as most Americans are concerned, and with his multicolored scarf and faithful robot dog K-9, inarguably the one icon other than the trusty TARDIS that has transcended the show and become part of the mainstream. For although there have been eight actors in the role, nobody is more inexorably linked the show than the reclusive Baker, and the one who more than any other has kept the air of mystique since he left the show decades ago.

During the seven-year tenure of Tom Baker, the series reached its incredible heights of popularity. Stewarded by such prolific producers as Philip Hinchcliffe, Graham Williams and John Nathan-Turner, the show also brought forth a young script editor called Douglas Adams. The Sontarans, Zygons, Rutans and the Black and White Guardians were introduced; the Daleks were given a very interesting prologue; and the Key to Time became the prize in a year-long quest. There were trips to E-Space, to ancient Egyptian mummy crypts and the sands of Mars, to the most distant planet in the galaxy and the familiarity of Victorian London. And Gallifrey itself was finally revealed to be not quite the idyllic paradise fans had come to imagine, but instead a decaying oligarchy subject to hostile takeover on more than one occasion.

The fourth Doctor was joined in his quest by a cavalcade of popular companions: the erstwhile reporter Sarah Jane Smith (Elisabeth Sladen) and the bumbling medic Harry Sullivan (Ian Marter); the savage Leela of the Sevateem (Louise Jameson) and the aforementioned K-9 (voiced by John Leeson); the two incarnations of the Gallifreyan student Romana (Mary Tamm and Lalla Ward); the artful dodger Adric (Matthew Waterhouse); and in his final days, the timid Nyssa (Sarah Sutton) and bombastic Tegan (Janet Fielding). And he faced villains from Davros to the Master, Magnus Greel to Harrison Chase, Skagra to the Great Vampire itself.

It was the heyday of Doctor Who... a time long remembered, an era missed by many when Tom Baker left the role after seven years, heading into the great bounty of television and theatre. He returned solely for the charity special "Dimensions in Time", but to this day, the mystique of the longest-serving yet most reclusive actor to play the Doctor remains.

5th tomorrow
