You'll find out in new science fiction series

A FLYING doctor--with a difference—comes to ABC television this week.

His flying machine is a craft in which he can travel through space and time.

He is Dr. Who, (pictured) a mysterious exile from a distant world—and from the future.

His space ship has one fault—he can never be sure where and when his "landings" will take place.

He has a grand-daughter, Susan, who looks and usually behaves like an ordinary girl, but who has uncanny intelligence.

Dr. Who, a BBC-made serial, premieres on ABC television at 7.30 on Friday night, January 15.

William Hartnell plays Dr. Who. Each adventure in the series will be covered in several weekly episodes.

The first episode, The Unearthly Child, scripted by Australian author Anthony Coburn, shows Dr. Who visiting the Britain of today.

Susan (Carole Ann Ford) becomes a pupil of a British school, where her incredible breadth of knowledge arouses the curiosity of two of her teachers, Barbara Wright (Jacqueline Hill) and Ian Chesterton (William Russell).

The teachers become involved in the doctor's strange travels.
