KEEN Saturday-afternoon viewers might be able to guess Who this is.

The face is unfamiliar. So is the Beatle-type thatch. But the clothes give him away.

It's the new Dr. Who--Patrick Troughton who has taken over from William Hartnell in the B B C science-fiction series.

Last week viewers saw the old Dr. Who for the last time—lying on the ground with his face slowly changing.

Today the transformation will be complete. At forty-six, forty Troughton is thirteen years younger than Hartnell—and that is as it should he.

For according to the plot, the 900-year-old Dr. Who is supposed to have become several centuries younger.
