The Five Faces of Dr Who (1981)

[edit]

In The Five Faces of Dr Who (BBC 2) it was the inability to make fire which kept the plot busy. The Tardis had come down in the Ice Age and unless the good doctor could find his matches the local Fire Maker would terminally upstage the time travellers. This was the very first yarn, from 1963. I found I remembered the establishing sequence almost shot for shot, with the Tardis's humble phone-box exterior gratifyingly revealing spacious quarters within. The shaggy Ice Age people, who, to be honest could be confused with Monty Python's comic cavemen, I'd quite forgotten, along with the prissy earthlings of William Russell and Jacqueline Hill. William Hartnell's Dr Who was granddad to Carole Ann Ford. Since in his successive incarnations he has become younger and younger in years he now has a little companion instead. It must be odd for Verity Lambert, still in her young womanhood, to be reminded that she founded an institution.
