An adventure in space and time.
Starring William Hartnell as Dr. Who and Maureen O'Brien, Peter Purves

The Doctor and his friends meet the Chumblies and the Drahvins.
See page 3 [text below]

Dr. Who meets the Drahvins when he lands on a strange planet at the start of a new adventure Galaxy Four.
BBC1 5.40
Today the wonderful space-time vessel Tardis and her remarkable commander Dr. Who resume their galactic voyage, interrupted by the summer. Long ago, when the stories of their adventures first started, the Doctor (William Hartnell) had three companions, but now he is reduced to two: Steven Taylor (Peter Purves), the space traveller snatched from the sinister grasp of the Mechanoids, and Vicki (Maureen O'Brien), the one-time castaway rescued from a distant planet.
Where their erratic craft will take the trio in the new series is only partially known. There is, of course, a better-than-even chance that they will come up once more against their traditional enemies the Daleks, and it is certain that they will be touching Earth again in one of the most exciting times and places of all legend - the 'ringing plains of windy Troy.'
There they will meet the valiant Achilles, Agamemnon, and the blustering Hector, and be near at hand when the Greeks bring off the most famous stratagem of all time - the introduction into the city of the Wooden Horse. John Wiles, who will take over production during this series from Verity Lambert, looks forward particularly to this story. He has for long been a keen student of the Trojan War and has produced plays on this subject for young people. However, for their first foray into the unknown the companions of the Tardis travel far from familiar earthly soil. Their vessel materialises on an inhospitable and supposedly uninhabited planet in distant Galaxy Four and, as always, the travellers' insatiable scientific curiosity leads them to start exploring. But they soon discover that they are by no means alone on the planet when they fall in with a strange entity called a Chumbley - one of a large corps of mechanical robots each of which is designed to carry out one specific task.
And these are not the planet's only other occupants: there are also the Drahvins, a race of beings dominated by females which has hit on the secret of endowing each individual with a fixed intelligence capacity, as in Aldous Huxley's book Brave New World. Three of these people appear in the nick of time to rescue the Doctor and his friends from the Chumblies, and to escort them back to the Tardis. One of them is the Drahvin leader, Maaga...
Galaxy Four is written by William Emms, and directed by Derek Martinus.

Dr. Who
In this series of adventures in space and time the title-role will be played by William Hartnell

Dr. Who? That is just the point. Nobody knows precisely who he is, this mysterious exile from another world and a distant future whose adventures begin today. But this much is known: he has a ship in which he can travel through space and time - although, owing to a defect in its instruments he can never be sure where and when his 'landings' may take place. And he has a grand-daughter Susan, a strange amalgam of teenage normality and uncanny intelligence.

Playing the Doctor is the well-known film actor, William Hartnell, who has not appeared before on BBC-tv.

Each adventure in the series will cover several weekly episodes, and the first is by the Australian author Anthony Coburn. It begins by telling how the Doctor finds himself visiting the Britain of today: Susan (played by Carole Ann Ford) has become a pupil at an ordinary British school, where her incredible breadth of knowledge has whetted the curiosity of two of her teachers. These are the history teacher Barbara Wright (Jacqueline Hill), and the science master Ian Chesterton (William Russell), and their curiosity leads them to become inextricably involved in the Doctor's strange travels.

Because of the imperfections in the ship's navigation aids, the four travellers are liable in subsequent stories to find themselves absolutely anywhere in time - past, present, or future. They may visit a distant galaxy where civilisation has been devastated by the blast of a neutron bomb or they may find themselves journeying to far Cathay in the caravan of Marco Polo. The whole cosmos in fact is their oyster

The Doctor and his companions land on the peaceful planet of Dulkis and encounter a new enemy - the cruel Dominators and their deadly Quarks.

[Photo caption] Look Out! It's the Quarks They're Dr. Who's latest enemies in the new adventure beginning today at 5.15.

The Tardis excels itself and picks a very pleasant spot on which to land - the planet Dulkis. The Doctor has been there before and knows its inhabitants, the pacifist Dulcians, well. So he promises Jamie and Zoe that they can look forward to a peaceful holiday. But things are never what they seem and the Doctor discovers how he has been deceived. For the planet has been taken over by the cruel Dominators and their deadly robots, the Quarks, perhaps the most frightening enemy the Doctor has yet encountered.
