Dr. Who: The Mind Robber: Part 1

on BBC One London

Dr. Who starts today a new adventure in space and time
Starring Patrick Troughton as Dr. Who
with Emrys Jones
and Frazer Hines, Wendy Padbury

The Tardis is in the path of molten lava and reluctantly the Doctor moves it, not only out of time and space, but also out of reality. The Doctor's explanation that they are 'nowhere' doesn't satisfy Zoe, but he warns her that on no account should she make any attempt to leave the ship.
Then Jamie sees on the scanner a picture of his Highland home. Zoe cannot see it. What she does see though is her home.
The Tardis crew have stumbled into a world where fiction appears as reality, where things exist only when men believe in them.
It is a world peopled with a race of monsters, the White Robots, with monsters from legend - the unicorn, the Minotaur, and the snakehaired Medusa. And with characters from fiction too, Gulliver, Rapunzel, D'Artagnan, Sir Lancelot, Cyrano de Bergerac (right, played by David Cannon)...
