THE ninety-minute DR. WHO special (BBC-1, 7.20) nearly ended up with a notable absentee. Producer John Nathan-Turner commissioned a script featuring all five Dr. Whos from the past two decades. Then there was a last-minute hitch.

In Richard Hurndall he found a great lookalike for the original Dr. Who, the late William Hartnell. But Tom Baker, who spent seven years as the Doctor, was unable to make the filming dates.

Luckily Nathan turned up a previously unseen episode featuring Baker from a series cancelled by an electricians' strike.
