One of the most popular shows in British TV history, this long-running, shoestring-budgeted sci-fi saga followed the exploits of "the Doctor," a maverick scientist and adventurer who traversed space and time in the TARDIS, a high-tech craft disguised (well, stuck, actually) as a London police box. William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee, Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, and Sylvester McCoy starred as the various eccentric incarnations of the Doctor during the series's initial 1963-1989 run. Most of it's video erased by the BBC, this 1965 adventure of the First Doctor (William Hartnell) is presented in animated form. Landing on a planet that will soon explode, the Doctor, Vicki, and Steven become caught up in the war between two alien species-only one of which is willing to help the other escape the ill-fated world. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English. Two-disc set.
