Plot Outline: The further adventures of the time traveling alien adventurer and his companions. Plot: Rose Tyler, a young shop assistant in a London department store, lives a humdrum and profoundly average life – until the night the shop dummies where she works wake up and try to kill her. Her life is saved by a strange man who only calls himself The Doctor, and intrigued by him, she finds herself thrown headlong into a hectic battle to stop an alien presence from invading Earth and annihilating the human race. She comes to learn that her new friend is even stranger than she thought – in fact, the Doctor's an alien adventurer called a 'Time Lord', seemingly the last of his race, who travels through time and space in his TARDIS battling evil where he finds it. And if she travels with him, she'll find herself witnessing the heat-death of the Earth five billion years in the future, meeting Charles Dickens in the past, and encountering lifeforms and invaders stranger than she'd ever thought possible. Only one thing is certain – it'll be the ride of a lifetime…

Plot Outline: The adventures of an eccentric renegade time traveling alien and his companions. Plot: 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 evolve over the years…

Of the 253 episodes of “Doctor Who” that were produced in the 1960s, 108 no longer exist in the BBC Television Archives due to an archive purge in the 1970s. The most recent episode to be recovered as of 2006 is a print of the 1965 episode “The Daleks' Master Plan: Day of Armageddon”, returned by a former BBC engineer in January 2004.
In addition to 108 episodes that no longer exist, some episodes no longer exist in their original format. Four episodes only survive in an edited state – “Checkmate” (“The Time Meddler”: Episode 4), “The Celestial Toymaker”: Episode 4, “The War Machines”: Episode 3, and “The War Machines”: Episode 4. Furthermore, twelve episodes only survive in black and white whilst originally filmed in color – “The Ambassadors of Death”: Episodes 2, 3, 4 and 7, “The Mind of Evil” (all six episodes), “Planet of the Daleks”: Episode 3, and “Invasion of the Dinosaurs”: Part 1.
The format of the show's entire run was a series of cliff-hanger adventure serials. Each of the Doctor's adventures would be told across several half-hour episodes, with a cliff-hanger ending each one. Each “season” of the show would be broken into several stories, taking usually 4 to 6 episodes to play out – on-screen, each individual episode would begin with the title of the story (“The Android Invasion”, to name one), followed by the story's author, then what episode the story the audience was watching (“Part One”, for example). This method of titling wasn't established until late in the third season; prior to that, every episode was given its own unique title. Because of this, there are no 'official' story titles to the earliest adventures, though semi-official ones have been consistently used on DVDs, books, etc.
