Dr Who - Can He Survive Final Peril? (1969)

[edit]

WHAT IS to happen to Dr. Who, still after eight years the B.B.C.'s 'most popular children's, serial with a Weekly audience of more than 8 million?

Today "Dr. Who" (B.B.C.1, 5.15 p.m.) is being hunted through time by his old enemies and the B.B.C wish that he and the Tardis space Ship would keep running.

But instead the programme is due to come to an abrupt halt in three weeks' time-not to return until 1970, if, indeed, even then.

For Patrick Troughton is giving up playing the doctor and has only reluctantly stayed until now. His companion Frazer Hines, who played the Scots boy Jamie, and Wendy Padbury, who plays Zoe, have also quit for good.

Anxious

An anxious search for a new Dr. Who and a fresh batch of space companions has been going on for most of the year without any success.

Youngsters accepted a new Dr. Who when Patrick Troughton took over the role from William Hartnell with a quick change of character back in November 1966. But Would they stomach another change of face?

Last night the B.B.C, said : "We intend Dr. Who will return next year."

Maybe. But who, will be Dr. Who ?
