New Space - Fiction Serial (1964)

1964-10-30 New Zealand Listener.jpg

[edit]

A SERIES of fantastic adventures, Dr Who, starts from AKTV-2 on Friday. Dr Who has a "way-our plot—not only because it is space fiction—and for background it has radiophonic title music, electronic camera effects, weird sets and costumes.

The mysterious Dr Who (William Hartnell) takes off from earth in his space-time ship Tardis with his teenage grand-daughter (Carole Ann Ford) and her two school teachers. They first stop in the Palaeolithic age, and for four episodes the travellers are involved in a battle between two cavemen whose tribe has lost the secret of making fire.

The voyagers escape from one set of problems to find themselves with another—the Daleks, who are mutant survivors of a neutron war as a distant planet, and can only oust encased in metal machines. More adventures follow for the Tardis four.

RIGHT: A scene from Dr Who, showing the two teachers (played by Ian Chesterton and Barabara Wright) and Dr Who's granddaughter. The London police box is really a space-time ship.
