Note: One of a series of 6 Doctor Who Chronicles books published between 1998 and 2002, each one containing a detailed episode-by-episode guide to one of the first six seasons (i.e. covering the Hartnell and Troughton eras of the classic series).
Dr Who? That is just the point. Nobody knows precisely who he is, this mysterious exile from another world and a distant future. But this much is known: he has a ship in which he can travel through space and time — although, owing to a defect in the instruments he can never be sure where and when his 'landings' may take place.
Because of the imperfections in the ship's navigation aids, the four travellers are liable to find themselves absolutely anywhere in time — past, present or future. They may visit a distant galaxy where civilisation has been devastated by the blast of a neutron bomb or they may find themselves journeying to far Cathay in the caravan of Marco Polo. The whole cosmos in fact is their oyster.
