A NEW ADVENTURE BEGINS ON SATURDAY

No MATTER how much some of us may want to, it is quite impossible to turn back the hands of time—and equally impossible to project ourselves forward in time and space. Impossible for us ordinary humans that is—but that strange old gentleman of uncertain age, Dr. Who (William Hartnell) has no difficulty at all in jumping straight out of the far-distant future back through time to the eighteenth century and right into the middle of the French Revolution.

Such is the setting for Saturday's opening episode of a new adventure for the Doctor and his friends. Written by Dennis Spooner, this adventure is basically a spy story—the group becomes involved in a type of 'Pimpernel' operation trying to rescue people destined for the guillotine—which does not interfere with the course of history but instead uses one of the most colourful and adventurous times in history as a thrilling background to the story.
