: Dr. Who: The Dominators: Part 4

by Norman Ashby
An adventure in space and time
starring Patrick Troughton as Dr. Who
with Walter Fitzgerald, Ronald Allen, Arthur Cox, Kenneth Ives and Frazer Hines, Wendy Padbury
Jamie continues his war on the Quarks - and the Doctor faces death unless he betrays him.

How Wendy caught the acting bug.
Twenty-year-old Wendy Padbury, who as Dr. Who girl Zoe provides the glamour aboard the Tardis, was born in a highly suitable place for a budding actress - Stratford-upon-Avon. As a little girl, she used to stand at the back of the theatre and watch the plays - 'It was this that gave me the acting bug,' she says. She then enrolled at a well-known stage school, where she studied singing, acting, and dancing, and it was the dancing bit that launched her showbusiness career.
She's appeared in many TV programmes, several West-End shows, and her latest film Charlie Bubbles, with Albert Finney, is due for release shortly. In her time off, Wendy has an interest in an antique shop, and she also plays tennis, and makes some of her own clothes.
And how does she feel about Dr. Who? 'It's very scary and exciting, but I'm loving it!'
Today's Dr. Who episode is at 5.15 on BBC-1

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
