Well boys and girls, with the conclusion of the busy month of May, it is time once again to post the all encompassing, massive, and quite wonderful (unbiased opinion) FAQ.

A few changes should be noted - with the airing of the new movie (in the UK and North America), various parts of the FAQ have been rewritten, particularly in Part 1. This is mainly to get the timing correct, and changes in tense.

Also, since it is of importance, I have added as Part 7, the information for contacting people about getting Doctor Who back on the air. I will be loading this stuff up at the ftp site or later today.

FAQ Item 0.7 - What Doctor Who newsgroups are there?

There are currently three Doctor Who USENET newsgroups. The primary one is rec.arts.drwho, where all general discussion and such takes place. Another newsgroup is alt.drwho.creative, which is exclusively for the posting of Doctor Who fan fiction.

Most recently, the information group,, was created. This group deals with information about the show, as well as the people in it, conventions, news items, etc. Since it is a moderated group, posts will not appear immediately, but are checked for relevancy before being posted.

There is also a alt.binaries.drwho group, though it is not available
on all systems.

Go to which ever trips your trigger.

There is also a mini FAQ for the #drwho IRC group at the WWW site

What is "Doctor Who"?

FAQ Item 1.1 - Who, and what, is Doctor Who

Doctor Who is, or was, the longest-running science-fiction series in the history of television. Created by the BBC in 1963 as a children's sci-fi series, Doctor Who eventually expanded its boundaries to just about every possible genre of television except for the musical. Spanning 26 seasons, the original BBC series had seven different actors taking on the lead role. Doctor Who was famous for its infinite flexibility and wide, dedicated, fan following. The show celebrated its 30th anniversary on November the 23rd, 1993.

The 158th and final BBC produced Doctor Who story, "Survival", aired in December of 1989. No further episodes have been produced by the BBC over the past six years, even though the show was never officially cancelled. In spite of this, Doctor Who lives on today, on the radio and in a popular series of full-length novels.

Recently, a television movie, made by Universal and the BBC continued the story line. It was hoped that this would lead to another series of shows, but the fate of Doctor Who is still undecided at this time.

FAQ item 1.2 - Why is the series called Doctor Who if that's not his name?

In "An Unearthly Child", the very first Doctor Who episode, aired on November 23, 1963, William Hartnell, the show's main character, was introduced simply as "The Doctor", a cranky old man with a time machine shaped like a British Police Box. Because his character was shrouded in mystery, the title Doctor Who merely referred to the fact that we were never to know exactly who this man is.

At various times in the show, different names were referred to:

"The Doctor" - the name he introduces himself as in every single story, and
the (proper) name many people call him by.

"Doctor Foreman" - Ian Chesterton and Barbara Wright refer to him as this
initially when they are investigating their unusual
student Susan Foreman, the Doctor's granddaughter.

"Doctor Who" - WOTAN in "The War Machines" referred to the Doctor by this
name; it was acknowledged as an error by the writing staff.

"Dr. John Smith" - alias used while working for U.N.I.T. during his exile
on Earth.

"Theta Sigma" - Used twice, in "The Armageddon Factor" and "The Happiness
Patrol"; apparently, a Time Lord nickname given to the Dr.
during his time at the Academy on Gallifrey.

"Merlin" - It's revealed in "Battlefield" that, in a future (?) incarnation,
the Doctor will become Merlin, adviser to King Arthur. The time
reference is uncertain since it involves parallel universes.

Apart from what he was called, the series did present us, over the proceeding
26 years, with much more information.

FAQ Item 1.3 - Just who is the Doctor?

The Doctor is a Time Lord, one of the elite of the planet Gallifrey. The Time Lords are an immensely old and powerful society who have the ability to travel through time in their TARDISes, but whose policy is not to interfere with the rest of the universe. Instead, they simply observe and act only when absolutely necessary. Gallifreyan society, ruled by the High Council, is a dull and stagnant affair; some might even say that it is slowly decaying.

The Doctor, of the Prydonian group of Time Lords, fled Gallifrey at some point (ostensibly because of boredom) and is now living the life of a renegade. His interference with space and time is in direct contravention to Time Lord policy, and he has twice been tried on this point. Despite this, the Doctor continues to traverse the galaxy, often with a companion or two, battling evil and oppression in all its many guises.

As a Time Lord, the Doctor has two hearts and can withstand temperature extremes better than humans. They have a symbiotic link with their time machines. They can also regenerate when their present body is worn out or dying.

FAQ Item 1.4 - What is Regeneration?

In 1966, an ill William Hartnell decided to leave the program, in the middle of its fourth season (there are conflicting reasons; it was either illness or a contract dispute). In order to keep the series going, it was decided to draw on the Doctor's unknown abilities as an alien and have him "regenerate". Regeneration is a type of bodily renewal, during which the Time Lord gains a completely new form, and often undergoes a moderate personality change. In this fashion, the elderly William Hartnell gave way to the younger Patrick Troughton. The Doctor has regenerated six times, and is in his seventh incarnation.

FAQ Item 1.5 - What is the TARDIS?

The TARDIS (an acronym for Time And Relative Dimensions In Space) is the time machine that the Doctor and other Time Lords travel in; it is the main vehicle for the series, which takes us to any number of times and places. It's "dimensionally trancendental" - bigger inside than out -, and, in the Doctor's case, it sometimes doesn't work properly. The Doctor's TARDIS is generally stuck in the shape of a Police Call Box, a familiar shape in England in 1963 but now obsolete. The version of the TARDIS that the Doctor uses is known as a "type 39", (though the Doctor usually refers to it as a "type 40") as with the British Police Call Box, the type 39 is considered an obsolete and outdated version of a TARDIS.

On numerous occasions the Doctor has attempted to repair his ship, with humorous and disastrous results. There is evidently some sort of telepathic link between the Doctor and his ship; they share a symbiotic relationship, and, as in the New Adventures, when the TARDIS malfunctions, so does the Doctor. The TARDIS is perhaps the second-most important character in the series; it is our "passport to adventure", and, in many ways, is the Doctor himself.

FAQ Item 1.6 - What are some of the best, or most popular Doctor Who episodes?

(Based on a poll in r.a.dw 11/15/94)

The 12 most popular shows, in order of broadcast,

"The War Games" Troughton
"Genesis of the Daleks" Tom Baker
"Pyramids of Mars" Tom Baker
"The Deadly Assassin" Tom Baker
"The Talons of Weng-Chiang" Tom Baker
"City of Death" Tom Baker
"Logopolis" Tom Baker
"Castrovalva" Davison
"Earthshock" Davison
"The Caves of Androzani" Davison
"Remembrance of the Daleks" McCoy
"The Curse of Fenric" McCoy

FAQ Item 1.7 - What are the Doctor Who movies starring Peter Cushing about?

During the 1960's when the show really took off, two movies were produced which starred Peter Cushing (of horror film fame) as the Doctor. Unlike the television show, the Doctor was a kindly old human inventor, Susan and Barbara were both shown to be his granddaughters, and Ian was Barbara's boyfriend. All three companions were significantly younger than their television counterparts. The cast of companions in the second movie was altered to omit Barbara and Ian, and to introduce Doctor Who's niece Louise and a bumbling police officer named Tom Campbell.

The two films were titled "Doctor Who and the Daleks" based upon the episode entitled `The Daleks', and "Daleks - Invasion Earth 2150 AD" based upon the episode `The Dalek Invasion of Earth'. Although considerably shortened, the movies generally followed the plotlines of the TV episodes.

FAQ Item 1.8 - What is this "K-9 & Company" Special I keep seeing?

This was a one-hour story pilot, an intended spinoff of Doctor Who aired on December 28, 1981, featuring Sarah Jane Smith and K-9, two former companions of the Doctor, teaming up as a dynamic crime-fighting duo. The pilot did not sell, but the story is generally repeated every Christmas as a special Doctor Who story and is aired every so often in the United States to help raise pledge money when the public T.V. stations which air Doctor Who hold fiscal drives.

FAQ Item 1.9 - What was the "Dimensions in Time" 30th Anniversary Special?

The 1993 "Children in Need" charity appeal on the BBC coincided with Doctor Who's 30th anniversary. In commemoration of the event, the BBC aired "Dimensions in Time", a short adventure consisting of two 14-minute episodes. "DiT" featured all five living Doctors and a number of companions battling the evil Time Lord (Lady) known as the Rani, who is interfering with the Doctor's own personal timeline and has recruited many of his greatest foes to aid her. "DiT" was aired in a 3-D format, and took place on the set of the BBC soap opera "EastEnders". Characters from "EastEnders" made brief appearances in the story.

The present and future of "Doctor Who"

FAQ Item 2.1 - Is Doctor Who still on the air?

No. The last episode to air from the original BBC series was "Survival", airing in December of 1989 as the last story of Season 26. While no official cancellation announcement was made, the BBC stopped production of the series.

Recently a TV-movie was made and shown in North America and the UK. The movie was a continuation of the original series, and it is hoped that a new series will come from the film, though that has not yet been decided.

The original series does live on in re-runs. A complete list of stations that carry Doctor Who is given in Part 5 of the FAQ (for those who would like to extract print it out and keep it with them as they travel across the country).

FAQ Item 2.2 - What were the last words ever spoken on Doctor Who?

From the Original Series:

Part 3 of "Survival" ended with this quote by the Doctor; it's widely-
quoted in this newsgroup and in .sig files everywhere. For your convenience:

There are worlds out there where the sky is burning, the seas sleep, and the rivers dream; people made of smoke, and cities made of song. Somewhere there's danger; somewhere there's injustice, and somewhere else the tea is getting cold! Come on Ace, we've got work to do!

From the TV Movie:
"Oh no, not again!"

FAQ Item 2.3 - What were the circumstances of the cancellation?

After Season 22, the first Colin Baker season, the show was put on "hiatus"; for 18 months, no new shows were produced. When Doctor Who returned, season length was shortened, from 13 45-minute episodes, to 14 25-minute episodes. Colin Baker was fired, after one more season and Sylvester McCoy became the seventh Doctor.

McCoy's tenure as the Doctor was not to be ratings success, however. Despite tenuous signs that the public was coming back to Doctor Who, there were a number of strikes against it. Most notable was its competition with ITV's "Coronation Street", which constantly placed within the top five television programs each week.

Finally, after Season 26, the BBC announced that Doctor Who was again being placed on hiatus. While it has returned in the form of a television movie, the future of the show is still uncertain.

FAQ Item 2.4 - Will there be more Doctor Who?

The TV movie has just aired in North America and the UK. In the US its ratings were rather low, and FOX did not put it on its schedule of new shows. At this time, the ratings in the UK are not known.

There are several things which could be done to try to put it back on the air, including writing to the various network executives. Information on writing to these people can be found in FAQ Part 7.

FAQ Item 2.5 - What's this Doctor Who radio special?

"The Paradise of Death", broadcast in the fall of 1993, was a special radio story featuring Jon Pertwee, Elisabeth Sladen and Nicholas Courtney reprising their roles as the Third Doctor, Sarah Jane Smith and Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, in an adventure scripted by former Doctor Who producer Barry Letts. It consisted of five half-hour episodes which were subsequently released on audio tape. The BBC was very happy with the success of "Paradise" and subsequently commissioned a sequel, also featuring Pertwee, Sladen and Courtney and again written by Letts. This was entitled "The Ghosts of N-Space", and was originally slated to air in early 1995. However, due to contractual difficulties, this has been pushed back to 1996. According to Elisabeth Sladen, though, the BBC has already proposed a third radio story.

FAQ Item 2.6 - What are the "New Adventures"?

"Doctor Who - The New Adventures" are a series of authorized, full- length Doctor Who novels, continuing from the end of "Survival", the final Sylvester McCoy story. They are published monthly by Doctor Who Books, a division of Virgin Publishing Co. and have been written by both established Doctor Who authors like Terrance Dicks, John Peel and Ben Aaronovitch, as well as newcomers such as Paul Cornell and Kate Orman. Originally, the books featured the adventures of the Seventh Doctor and Ace, but Ace has since departed, to be replaced by archaeologist Bernice "Benny" Summerfield, and 30th-century Adjudicators Roslyn Forrester and Chris Cwej, and a cat named Wolsey.

The New Adventures promise to deliver stories "too big and broad for the small screen; full length science fiction novels". In some cases, the traditional Doctor Who format has been reworked, such as books not really featuring the Doctor himself. Some of the novels have been linked together, though the majority stand alone. Many of the books are aimed at hard-core science fiction fans, and some Who traditionalists do not find them totally satisfying.

A complete list of The New Adventures that have been released to date appears in the third part of this FAQ.

FAQ Item 2.7 - And what are the "Missing Adventures"?

As a tandem to the New Adventures, Doctor Who Books is now releasing a set of adventures featuring the first six incarnations of the Doctor and his old companions; these are stories that take place between the televised episodes. Like the early "New Adventures", a mix of established and unknown authors will tackle the "Missing Adventures".

A complete listing of current and scheduled Missing Adventure novels is included in the third part of the FAQ.

The Lost "Doctor Who" Episodes

FAQ Item 3.1 - What are the "missing episodes" or "lost episodes"?

During the early seventies many Doctor Who stories were destroyed by the BBC, along with vast amounts of other material kept by the BBC, in order to cut costs in storage. This was in the age before home video, when the material appeared useless due to the limitations on televised repeats in Britain.

Many of the lost episodes are of the later William Hartnell and much from the Patrick Troughton era. As many as 109 episodes are still missing (equivalent to 2 to 3 seasons). "Tomb of the Cybermen" with Patrick Troughton as The Doctor, was found in Hong Kong in early 1992, raising hopes that more of the lost episodes will be found.

In addition to the lost Hartnell and Troughton episodes, some Pertwee episodes exist only in black and white versions. Recently, several episodes from "The Silurians", "Terror of the Autons", "The Daemons" and "The Ambassadors of Death" have had their color restored using low-quality color video tapes recorded in the U.S.

A complete list of the Missing Doctor Who episodes appears below:

FAQ Item 3.2 - I know something about missing episodes. What do I do?

Here's the name and address of the man to contact with missing episode

Mr Adam Lee,
Archive Selector,
BBC Film and Videotape Library,
Reynard Mills Industrial Estate,
Windmill Road,
England TW8 9NF

Tel: 0181-567 6655

Reports on whether the supplier of these lost episodes will be reimbursed have varied from source to source. The most substantial report I have received so far has been:

"There is an amnesty, and no questions at all will be asked if private collectors do have some of the missing episodes; all the BBC wants to do is to copy the film print (or whatever), the original being retained by the donor. The BBC has recently introduced a "finder's fee" for these lost episodes, which covers any money that film collectors have had to pay to secure their collections. The fee is entirely negotiable."

(Thanks to Richard Develyn

FAQ Item 3.3 - What are the "missing novelizations"?

W.H. Allen and Target Books, between the years 1973 and 1991, published a set of novelizations for just about every Doctor Who story ever produced. 155 in number, they span the Doctor Who era from "An Unearthly Child" all the way to "Survival", some greatly expanded on the original stories, others basically verbatim transcripts.

A few serials, however, have never been novelized. They include Douglas Adams' "The Pirate Planet", "City of Death" and "Shada" and Eric Saward's "Resurrection of the Daleks" and "Revelation of the Daleks".

In the case of the Adams' serials, he has refused to novelize his stories because a writer of his caliber would never stoop to churning out a novelization for a low fee. Furthermore, several plot elements from "City of Death" and "Shada" were reused in Adams' two Dirk Gently novels.

The Dalek episodes never reached print because of royalties disputes between Terry Nation, the original creator of the Daleks, and Eric Saward, who penned many of the later Dalek serials and deviated greatly from Nation's original concept of the Daleks. Apparently this conflict has been resolved and Saward is now scheduled to novelize "Resurrection" and "Revelation". These were originally due to appear in 1994, but will now see print no earlier than 1996.

FAQ Item 3.4 - What are these Missing Episodes that I see in bookstores?

To further confuse the issue, during season 22, the show was temporarily pulled off the air and the stories that were planned for season 23 were shelved and never filmed. There are novelizations of 3 of the stories that were intended for that season.

The stories and the novelizations are as follows -

Title Author ISBN #
The Nightmare Fair Graham Williams 0 426 20334 8
Mission to Magnus Philip Martin 0 426 20347 X
The Ultimate Evil Wally K. Daly 0 426 20338 0

Eric Saward is also supposed to novelize Robert Holmes' planned "Yellow Fever". Like his two forthcoming Dalek novelizations, however, it is uncertain when this will see the light of day.

FAQ Item 3.5 - What is Shada?

Shada was the name of a six part story, which would have been the last one of the 1979 season. The story was scripted by Douglas Adams and many scenes were shot on location in Cambridge England. However during production, a strike by television personnel at the BBC prevented the completion of the show. While there large amounts of filming were complete, various aspects such as special effects and large parts of studio filming were not completed. This particular show was then considered dead in the water. Interest in Shada did not let up, and various attempts to save the story were made. Finally, in 1991 the BBC released the extant material for "Shada" on videotape, with new special effects added and Tom Baker providing the links for missing material.

FAQ Item 4.2 - I write Doctor Who fiction in my spare time.
Who can I show it to?

Many news sites now carry the separate net "alt.drwho.creative". On this group, you can post the original Doctor Who stories, of any nature and with any Doctor, to the rest of USENET for everybody to read. If you'd like to take your writing to a more serious level, you might consider penning a "New" or "Missing Adventure".

Another option is to submit your story to Everlasting Films, a group who produces audio dramas for Doctor Who - they are always interested in new writers. Contact for more information or check out their website at

FAQ Item 4.3 - What is Storm God Rising and Net_Decalog?

Over the past couple of years, there have been a number of attempts to publish collections of Doctor Who short stories written purely by fans on the Internet -- veteran and novice Who authors alike. The first, "Storm God Rising", was edited by Rich Salter and Jason Miller and concerned the Doctor's encounters with the Storm-Demon Achmael. The second, referred to simply as Net_Decalog would have been the third "Decalog" book had it been accepted, and used the running theme of the Ten Commandments. It was edited by Salter, Miller and Lou Anders. Sadly, both of these efforts were rejected by Virgin.

Currently, Salter, Miller and Anders are putting together a new Net_Decalog proposal with the running theme of "networks" as suggested by Virgin editor Rebecca Levene.

The stories are avaiable at the FTP site, under the directory pub/Doctor_Who/matrix/Net_Adventures/SGR/

FAQ Item 4.4 - How can I get a New Adventure published?

This information has been graciously submitted by "New Adventures" author
Kate Orman.

From: IN%"" (Kate Orman)

Last updated 25/10/93

As you probably know, the New Adventures are a series of novels featuring the Seventh Doctor, Ace, and most recently the new companion Benny, in a series of linked tales which follow on from the end of "Survival".

New Adventures can be up to 100,000 words long. My contract specified from seventy-five to eighty-five thousands words. Some are linked in short series, such as the Timewyrm books which began the range; others stand alone. However, unlike the Star Trek books, they do form a continuous series.

To submit an NA, you have to send the first 15,000 words or so, plus a full synopsis of the entire story, to the editor, Peter Darvill-Evans, at:

Virgin Publishing
332 Ladbroke Gve
London W10 5AH

For *any* professional submission, you should only send typed or high-quality computer printed stuff; handwriting is not acceptable. It should be double-spaced, on one side of the page only, with big margins. This is because the manuscript you send will be marked up and sent directly to the typesetters, so there needs to be plenty of space for the markings. It also means that too many spelling / typing / grammatical errors will get your manuscript rejected, since it would have to be retyped at considerable expense.

In the original version of this file, I stated that submissions should avoid including copyrighted monsters / villains, such as the Daleks. Virgin are now happier with using monsters from the series, such as the Silurians. However, I would still *recommend* that you don't use TV monsters or villains as a major part of your book. This is for two reasons: one, if there *is* a copyright problem, it's cheaper to reject you. Secondly, it shows a lack of originality.

Virgin suggest you avoid the Valeyard, stories set in alternative timelines, and Victorian, Edwardian, and late twentieth century Earth.

A couple of comments on being rejected. With thousands of people pouring manuscripts into the Virgin offices, they can afford to be really choosy. Give your manuscript the best chance you can, by making it as readable, error-free, and original as possible - but don't be too surprised / hurt if you are rejected. It's not a pleasant experience (even though PDE's rejection slips are really nice) - but it doesn't mean you're a hopeless failure as an author / human being - just that you were edged out by one of the 1000000000 other submissions! Try, try again.

The "Missing Adventures" - books featuring the other Doctors - are definitely going ahead. Novels must fit into the "gaps" between the televised stories.

Ace will be leaving the series, probably at the end of 1994. It's possible a male companion will join the TARDIS crew.

Just btw, if you don't feel like writing 100,000 words, don't forget DWM's Brief Encounters. These are around 800 words.

Need more info? Please feel free to email me. (Kate Orman)

FAQ Item 4.5 - What Doctor Who reference books can I consult?

Numerous Doctor Who reference books have been published in the past. Many of the earlier ones contain inaccuracies and errors, and have been supplanted by more recent texts. The most worthwhile books include:

"The Programme Guide"/"The Terrestrial Index"/"The Universal Databank", by Jean-Marc Lofficier

This "reference trilogy" is probably the most comprehensive guide to the television stories themselves ever published. "The Programme Guide" lists every story, including cast lists and story information. A recent updated edition also provides details on New Adventures up to "All-Consuming Fire". "The Terrestrial Index" features a hypothetical history of the Doctor Who universe and a guide to all official Doctor Who fiction ever released. "The Universal Databank" is an encyclopaediac listing of people, places, things and more that have appeared on Doctor Who.

"The Sixties"/"The Seventies", by David J. Howe, Mark Stammers and Stephen James Walker

These hardcover books give a detailed overview of the first two decades of Doctor Who's existence. They are aimed primarily at the casual fan, but contain a wealth of information and photographs for all. "The Eighties" is forthcoming.

"The Handbooks", by David J. Howe, Mark Stammers and Stephen James Walker

A series of paperback analyzing the era of each Doctor individually. These contain a vast array of details on every story and Doctor, including reviews of all the stories. Handbooks for the First, Fourth and Sixth Doctor have been published so far; the others are slated to be published annually.

"25 Glorious Years", by Peter Haining

The most recent overview of the entire series published. It contains a number of inaccuracies, but is nevertheless a worthwhile overview of Doctor Who.

FAQ Item 4.6 - Where to find videotapes and New Adventures

Many fans in the United States have had trouble getting access to the CBS/Fox Doctor Who videos released, and have had problems with bookstores obtaining the New Adventures and recent Dalek novelizations. Here's a quick reference guide on where to find this stuff.


SunCoast Video, a national (U.S.) retail video chain, with stores just about everywhere at this point, carries every CBS/Fox video ever released through the BBC. They generally carry at least one copy of every video at all times, and have information on when the newest set of videos are to be released (generally, every 6 months).

If there's no Suncoast Video store near you, the following video catalog has been seen carrying several Doctor Who, as well as other fairly obscure sci-fi videos:

The Video Catalog
P.O. Box 64428
St. Paul, MN 55163-0428
1 (800) 733-2232


Most national (U.S.) bookstore chains (Barnes & Noble, Waldenbooks, B. Dalton Booksellers) now carry all New Adventures upon their release, and generally have back copies of older books floating around for several months. They will also order copies of books they no longer have in stock; when doing this, be sure to specify that this as a "Doctor Who: The New Adventures" book along with the title, and supply the ISBN code, which is provided in FAQ Part 5 for every New and Missing Adventure currently released.

A supplier of New Adventures novels is

Dr Who
120 Enterprise Avenue
Secaucus, NJ 07094-9834
TEL: (800)-477-BOOK

It appears that this is a division of the Carol Publishing Group who supplies the New Adventures in the US. (Thanks to Dennis Lawrence for this information). However, in late 1994, Virgin Publishing switched distribution from Carol to London Bridge; it is unknown whether this address can still provide New and Missing Adventures.

FAQ Item 4.7 - Where can I find other Doctor Who merchandise?

WHO Enterprises in Toronto was one of the foremost suppliers of Who (and other sci-fi) merchandise in North America. However, in 1994 they drastically cut back on their operations, closing their store and returning to mail order only. They now deal exclusively with pre-orders, except on books and videos which they will back order. However, they still have back stock from before the store closing, which includes books, magazines, posters, calendars, games, enamel pins, audio/video tapes, comics, toys, models, figures, t-shirts, hats, records, CD's, mugs, programme guides, costume patterns and accessories, etc. These items can still be ordered while supplies last; it suggested that WHO Enterprises be contacted as to availability before ordering any back stock. All back stock is being sold at 20% off.

WHO Enterprises no longer publishes a catalogue, but instead mails a list of upcoming products to those who subscribe to the service. This subscription costs $8.00 CAN for one year. Items must be ordered within a month after they ship.

Here is their mail order address:
Who Enterprises
P.O. Box 399,
Station "R"
Toronto, Ontario
M4G 4C3

(416) 423-6828 - Voice (limited hrs.) or leave a message and/or FAX (24hrs.)
Sorry, they don't have a 1-800 number.

Another good source is 800-TREKKER. Their address is:
PO Box 13131, Dept. T-2
Reading PA 19612-3131
or 610-373-7100
or 610-992-1900

They also have a WWW site:

They seem to have a good variety of merchandise and prompt service.

Another source, of mainly the hard to find merchandise, is

Intergalactic Trading Co.
P.O. Box 1516
Longwood FL 32752

They don't have the new stuff (books, videos), but they do have posters, pins, magazines and other hard to find merchandise. (This information provided by Brian Leggett)

4.8 I play role-playing games. Are there any for "Doctor Who"?

There are two commercial role-playing games, and many fans play Doctor Who adopting (usually generic) systems to the Doctor Who universe. There is a mailing list for role-playing in the Doctor Who universe, who-rpg-l, and it has a web page at <.>>.

This first is "The Doctor Who Role Playing Game" (FASA, Chigaco, 1985), Ed. Wm. John Wheeler

This comprises three books in a box with Tom Baker / Leela on it. Player characters were usually from the Gallifreyan Celestial Intervention Agency and similar to the Doctor/companions in that they were usually a Time Lord/Lady and some humans travelling around in a TARDIS. The mechanics were a reworking of FASA Star Trek role-playing game. This was followed by several, usually good, adventures, and three sourcebooks of varying quality.

The second is "Time Lord" (Doctor Who Books, London, 1991), by Ian Marsh and Peter Darvill-Evans, ISBN 0426 203623

Players are the Doctor and companions - there is no character generation system, although there is an appendix on how to produce stats for yourself (!). This game suffered from very bad placement (in other words, it was sold with Doctor Who books, not with the RPGs) and there have been no official supplements other than a couple of Doctor Who magazine articles.

FAQ Item 4.9 - Hey I just moved to town - is there a fan club nearby?

There is a list of fan clubs located at my web site, as well as posted
at the Frontios ftp site.

There are also national, and international fan clubs. Among them are:

The Doctor Who Appreciation Society - UK based
e-mail contact: Andrew Eaton (
s-mail: DWAS, PO Box 519, London SW17 8BU

Doctor Who Information Network - Canada based
e-mail contact: Dale Clayton (
s-mail: PO Box 912
Station F
Toronto ON Canada M4Y 2N9

FAQ Item 4.10 - What is "Whonited for Charity"?

WHONITED FOR CHARITY is a fundraising project established and run by Kevin W. Parker (president of the Elisabeth Sladen Information Network) and Laurie Yadon (formerly the president of clubs for Tom Baker and Colin Baker). In 1993 they decided to combine and expand the fundraising they had done within their own small clubs, so that more of their fellow DOCTOR WHO fans would be able to participate. The first two annual WHONITED drives raised a total of $5,100 for six Registered Charities in the U.K. which are actively supported by Tom Baker, Colin Baker, Sophie Aldred, Jon Pertwee and Elisabeth Sladen. This year a seventh charity, one supported by Nicholas Courtney, will be included. WHONITED FOR CHARITY has the full support of all the charities and actors included, plus many North American DOCTOR WHO fan clubs. For more information, and/or to be added to their mailing list, please contact either Laurie ( or Kevin (

FAQ Item 4.11 - Are there any Doctor Who trading cards available?

Yes, there have been, and there are cards being currently produced. The 3rd edition of the Cornerstone cards will be out later in 1995, and if you would like more information about them, just drop them some e-mail at .

Random Items concerning "Doctor Who"

FAQ Item 5.1 - Which big celebrities have appeared on Doctor Who?

John Cleese appeared, with Eleanor Bron, as an art critic in "City of Death". A clip of The Beatles performing "Ticket to Ride" was seen in "The Chase". "Queen Elizabeth" was seen walking her dogs in "Silver Nemesis" (sadly, this was not the real queen). American stage actor Stubby Kaye (from the original Broadway and movie version of "Guys & Dolls") appeared as a bumbling yet lovable U.S. secret agent in "Delta & The Bannermen". Julian Glover appeared as King Richard the Lionheart in "The Crusade", and as Scaroth in the popular "City of Death". Jean Marsh briefly played companion Sara Kingdom in "The Daleks' Master Plan", and was also Joanna in "The Crusade" and Morgaine in "Battlefield". Honor Blackman, from "The Avengers" and "Goldfinger", played Professor Lasky in "Terror of the Vervoids" (a portion of the "Trial of a Time Lord" season). And in a strange, yet almost appropriate career move, Patricia Quinn (Magenta in "Rocky Horror Picture Show") appeared as Belazs in "Dragonfire".

FAQ Item 5.2 - What are "The Stranger" videos?

The Stranger videos are a series of semi-professional stories made by Who fan Bill Baggs. They star Colin Baker as Soloman or "The Stranger". Originally, the Stranger was a very Doctor-like being who was unaware of his own past. More recently, the truth about the Stranger's past has been revealed. Concurrently, the series has seen a shift away from being such an out-and-out Doctor Who imitation and taken on a style of its own. A plethora of Who celebrities have also appeared in the Stranger videos, such as Nicola Bryant (Peri), Louise Jameson (Leela) and Sophie Aldred (Ace).

There have been six Stranger videos so far: "Summoned by Shadows", "More Than a Messiah", "In Memory Alone", "The Terror Game", "Breach of the Peace" and the two-part "Eye of the Beholder". There have also been two Stranger audio tapes.

Bill Baggs has also produced other videos starring Doctor Who cast in non-Who roles, among them "The Airzone Solution" and "The Zero Imperative". The latter features the return of Caroline John as Liz Shaw, though the Doctor himself is not present.

Further details and ordering information are available in the UK from:

53 South Road
Beeston, Nottingham NG9 1LY

In the US, the following source for videos is recommended:

Science Fiction Continuum
P.O. Box 154
Colonia, NJ 07067-0154
Telephone: 1-800-232-6002
FAX orders: 1-908-755-2886

FAQ Item 5.3 - What is the "Mythmaker" Series?

Another independently produced series of videos, which highlight the actors and actresses who have appeared in the show. These are sort of mini- biographies, where the performer usually takes you on a tour of some location that they live in, grew up in, went to school at, etc. These are recommended only if you *really* want to see what these people are like when they are not in front of the camera. The video list is rather extensive and should be consulted for the currently available editions. The "Mythmakers" videos are made by Reeltime Pictures, who have also made two adventures featuring Doctor Who characters, called "Wartime" and "Downtime".

FAQ Item 5.4 - What is this I hear about a female Doctor Who?

In the 1980s, a Seattle-based filmmaker named Ryan K. Johnson produced four movies with a female Doctor. They were:

Doctor Who: The Wrath of Eukor (1984) 30 minutes
Doctor Who: Visions of Utomu (1986) 32 minutes
Pentagon West (1987) 28 minutes
Doctor Who: Broken Doors (1988) 20 minutes

You can still get copies directly from Ryan by sending him a blank VHS tape and $2 for return postage to:

Ryan K. Johnson
6523 NE 171st Pl.
Bothel WA 98011


Foreign requests will of course have to add extra money to cover the extra postage. Ryan can only make copies in the American video standard (NTSC). If you are in the UK or Australia and want PAL copies, you'll have to look around in your own country for copies - they're there, just ask around.

FAQ Item 5.5 - Were those the Doctor's faces in "The Brain of Morbius"?

At the climax of the Tom Baker story "The Brain of Morbius", the Doctor and Morbius engage in a mental duel. At a point when the Doctor appears to be losing, the faces of the First Doctor appears, followed by several other adult male faces in various period clothing. The suggestion appears to be that these are previous incarnations of the Doctor prior to William Hartnell's version. Indeed, this was the idea at the time the story was broadcast (the faces themselves were those of various production members).

However, this directly conflicts with various other statements in the series. In "The Deadly Assassin", it is said that a Time Lord can only regenerate twelve times, but by this count, Peter Davison's should have been the final Doctor. Furthermore, in "The Five Doctors", the Fifth Doctor specifically states that he is the fourth regeneration. This has led to the assumption that the faces are Morbius', though this is not borne out by what appears on-screen.

This is one of those subjects which is essentially unanswerable, but seems to be particularly persistent on the newsgroup. The real answer, of course, is that there *is* no answer -- just lots of debates amongst fans.

FAQ Item 5.6 - Which companions have posed nude?

Following the end of her tenure as Jo Grant in the 70s, Katy Manning posed naked for the first issue of a magazine called "Girl"... with a Dalek! A portion of the article including these photos was reprinted in David Howe's book "Timeframe" in 1993. (Photos1) (Photos2)

The only other companion said to have posed nude is Lalla Ward, who played the second Romana. Apparently, however, this was actually a body double used for a film Lalla filmed; stills (presumably taken from this movie) have popped up in magazines now and then.

FAQ Item 5.7 - What are the proper story titles?

Following the painstaking research of people like David Howe, Mark Stammers, Stephen James Walker and Andrew Pixley, it has come to light that many of the titles commonly used by fans are not, in fact, the correct story titles. This has become a bone of contention for many fans, some of whom prefer to use the customary titles while others favor the "proper" titles. Stories referred to by a number of titles are:

Serial A:
"An Unearthly Child" (common title)
"100,000 B.C." (proper title)
"The Tribe of Gum" (once commonly used, now becoming obsolete)

Serial B:
"The Daleks" (common title)
"The Mutants" (proper title -- not used to avoid confusion with the
Pertwee story of the same name)
"The Dead Planet" (title of the first episode, occasionally used to refer
to the whole story)

Serial C:
"The Edge of Destruction" (common title)
"Inside the Spaceship" (proper title)
"Beyond the Sun" (actually a working title for the first episode of
Serial B, confused with Serial C due to BBC documentation)

Serial DC (aka Serial T/A):
"Mission to the Unknown" (common title)
"Dalek Cutaway" (proper title)

Serial W:
"The Massacre" (common title)
"The Massacre of St. Bartholomew's Eve" (proper title)

Serial BBB:
"The Silurians" (common title)
"Doctor Who and the Silurians" (proper title, albeit an accident by the
production staff)

FAQ Item 5.8 - Is Susan REALLY the Doctor's graddaughter?

Despite having no legitimate evidence to support their arguments, many fans profes the belief that Susan is not really the Doctor's (biological) granddaughter. Like the question of whether the Monk, Master and War Chief are really the same Time Lord, there is nothing in the series itself to make us think that Susan is not the Doctor's granddaughter. Indeed, the Doctor makes reference to having a "family" in both "The Tomb of the Cybermen" and "The Curse of Fenric". However, it has never been conclusively stated that Susan _is_ the Doctor's granddaughter either, so these fans are not necessarily completely out in left field.

FAQ 0.1. I want to buy Doctor Who on video. Where do I go?

Many Doctor Who videos have been released in the UK under the BBC Video banner, and more are coming out all the time. CBS/Fox in the US follows behind them, and has to date released about two-thirds of the UK available titles. It is through CBS/Fox that you can buy Doctor Who videos in the US. A good place to look is Suncoast Video or a Sam Goody, or any video retail store with a nice science fiction section. If there is no such place in your area, ask what stores you do have to to do a special order for you. They should be able to get the title you want at the regular price if you can provide the full title, label (CBS/Fox Video), and catalog number. All this information is provided below.

Availability of Videos is not promised - these things come and go, but the vast majority of this data was obtained from the catalogue for the Science Fiction Continuum, whose address is given below:

FAQ 0.2 What videos can I get? How much will they cost me?

Below is a listing of all the commercially available Doctor Who videos in their chronological order in the TV series. THIS LIST APPLIES TO NORTH AMERICA ONLY. There are more videos than this listing available in the UK. CBS/Fox has not quite caught up with BBC Video, but they're working at it. (by the way, if you send them any requests, please remember that they can only choose from those videos already out in the UK) Prices on a normal single tape of a story are usually $19.99. If the story is longer and needed two volumes, the price is usually $29.99. Any exceptions are pointed out in the listings.

A comment we received a lot from attendees at Visions '95 was that many of you don't like the Masquerade Ball and would like to see some other type of event in its place. This year we will try something different - a Masquerade Cabaret. Similar to our Saturday night celebrity-only Variety Show, this Friday night fan-only Cabaret will give you a chance to show off your talents. Of course, if you'd rather just show off your costume, you can still do that, too. Interested? Then please send a SASE to us (P.O. Box 1202, Highland Park, IL 60035-1202), attention Jennifer Kelley, or e-mail to and we'll send you the necessary information. By the way, there will be no additional charge to attend this event. We hope to hear from lots of you and are confident that this event will become another perennial favorite of Visions attendees.

In addition to all of the other exciting events we offer at Visions, this year we plan to set aside several small meeting rooms which will remain open 24 hours a day. These rooms will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis; if you'd like to host a game, pleases stop by Ops and sign up. If you simply want to play, just drop in and see what's available.

We are again distributing The Visions Rookie Guide. It explains how and why things are done at Visions and other media and science fiction cons. If you would like to know what the difference is between a fan-run convention and a commercial convention, or what you can do to make your attendance at Visions one of the highlights of the year, please send us a business-sized SASE with postage for 2 ounces for your free copy. It is also available by e-mail from, and from the Visions Web Page at

On Saturday we have a luncheon where each celebrity hosts a table of 10 fans. The cost is $30 per person, which includes a soft drink and a limited-variety menu. Because we cannot guarantee that a particular guest will be in attendance at the convention, it will not be possible to honor any requests to be seated at a specific guest's table. Sign up early to assure your place before the available seating runs out.

On Saturday evening we present a variety show at the cost of $20 per person. This consists of a performance of some kind by each of the celebrity guests -- singing, dancing, stand-up comedy, dramatic reading, or whatever. Not everyone who attends the convention is interested in this, which is why we make it an optional event. Tickets can be obtained at the con itself, but people are let into the hall in the order their tickets were purchased, so earlier purchase by mail gets you better choice of seating.

If you want to make a presentation or host a panel discussion at Visions '96, we can provide you with a room and put you on the printed schedule. Just submit your panel request to us in writing no later than September 30, and let us know which general time of day you prefer and which of our normal activities you don't want to conflict with your event.

In addition to our two usual Video Rooms highlighting the work of our celebrity guests and other television items we think you will find of interest, we will again be offering a "Fan" Video Room. We've had a good response in previous years to fan-made versions of Doctor Who, Red Dwarf, Star Trek: The Next Generation, The Prisoner, Mystery Science Theater 3000, and Monty Python's Flying Circus. If you have something you'd like shown in this room, please send us copy of your tape no later than October 31 so that it may be timed and scheduled. We do however reserve the right to refuse to show any video we deem unsuitable.

We still have several items which were left behind in our "Lost and Found" box after previous conventions. If you believe we might have something belonging to you, please send us a written description of the item and we"ll let you know if we have it and make arrangements to get it back to you.

Custom-assembled videotapes are available of events from Visions '90-'95. We can mail you a catalog if you send us a business-sized SASE. It is also available by e-mail from, and from the Visions Web Page at

FAQ Part 7: How to contact FOX, BBC and others

Updated June 1, 1996

Includes Snail-mail, e-mail, telephone, and FAX addresses of various organizations involved with the recent Doctor Who Movie. If you have any corrections or additions items that you think should be included here - please send them my way

Eventhough FOX did not put Doctor Who on their Fall lineup, there is still hope (Hey, there WAS a movie made, wasn't there - it ain't dead yet!). You may now want to encourage FOX to have the Doctor as a mid-season replacement, or perhaps encourage the producers of the film (BBC and Universal) to produce it for syndication.

Since this was a multi-national project, then it would be good if there were multi-national letters sent - so the BBC addresses are also included (doesn't make a lot of sense for someone in the UK to write to FOX....). Perhaps you might want to wait to send your letters to the BBC *after* they show the film - though some words of thanks before the showing can't hurt.

While e-mail messages may be easy to send, they are also easy to delete. If you are really interested in getting Doctor Who on the air, you should send a written letter via Snail-mail - they are much more difficult to ignore than e-mail messages!

General rules of writing to networks - be polite, concise, and check your spelling (unlike what I do). Ranting, screaming, writing in all caps, etc., tend to be ignored and tossed in the circular file cabinet. Don't make demands, threats or other nasty comments - try to be as nice as possible in encouraging these folks to put Doctor Who on the schedule.
