The Doctor predicted Alternative Facts a very long time ago.

(Doctor Who Story No. 44) 1968, written by Mervyn Haisman & Henry Lincoln, under the name "Norman Ashby".

Very unflattering costumes of the natives - which looked as if they were made from curtains? and of course the women's clothes were transparent, and shorter!

Sonic screwdriver is used to cut through a panel, I think for the first time.

Hippy-style pacifist Dulkis residents, and only Jamie and one guy willing to fight back. Cully. The leader's son of course. And he seemed a lot less conscious of his short skirt than Jamie was of his kilt! The Dominators are humanoid, with more silly costumes, the leader at least appeared able to think strategically while his second is a simple psychopath "kill 'em all" soldier.

 

As you can see, animated shop dummies were not Russell's invention. Nor the Nestene Consciousness. Oh, and it's got TENTACLES!

      Susan, Ian, Barbara Daleks

On Skaro, The Tardis lands in an alien, petrified jungle, beyond which lies a mysterious, deserted city. The Doctor insists on exploring, but before long the Tardis crew all begin experiencing the early effects of radiation sickness. And then they discover that the metal city isn’t as deserted as they first thought…

1st Doctor     Marco Polo
  The full print is MISSING at 2020. Audio and book versions available   Susan, Ian, Barbara   Marco Polo did a much better job of recreating historical societies than other serials. It showed a mixed-ethnic group rather than a stereotypical collection of one race. Reference is made to real-world narcotics when Ping-Cho relates a fairytale that features hashish.
1st Doctor   The DVD was released on 21st September 2009 in the UK

The Keys of Marinus

The Sea of Death

The Beginning Box set contains these three episodes     Susan, Ian, Barbara Voord

Terry Nation wrote this story as a replacement to The Red Fort, a story that was to be set during the Indian Mutiny.

Terry Nation developed more background in his script than was made explicit onscreen in the finished production. The Voord were alien invaders who took advantage of the people of Marinus, rendered vulnerable by the pacifying effects of the Conscience. The Conscience was then deactivated to allow the Marinians to fight the Voord, and over the centuries, the time they spent on Marinus meant that the Voord, too, could now be affected by the machine. Therefore, Arbitan dispatched agents to recover the keys which would reactivate the Conscience and allow him to finally defeat the invaders.

This story contains a controversial scene in which it appears that Vasor attempts to rape Barbara — a sequence which, surprisingly, did not prevent the BBC Video release in 1999 from being granted a "U" certificate.

This is one of only two televised Doctor Who stories by Terry Nation not to feature the Daleks. The other was The Android Invasion, more than a decade later.

The Screaming Jungle    
The Snows of Terror      
Sentence of Death      
The Keys of Marinus      
1st Doctor     The Aztecs
The Temple of Evil    

Susan, Ian, Barbara

 

The Aztecs was the first story to address the issue of altering the course of history and the first to involve a romantic subplot concerning the Doctor.

The arrival of the TARDIS in 15th century Mexico leads the crew to the doomed Aztec people, a mixture of high culture and brutal savagery. Matters are further complicated when Barbara is mistaken for a god and the Doctor becomes engaged to be married.

The Warriors of Death
The Bride of Sacrifice
The Day of Darkness
1st Doctor     The Sensorites
Strangers in Space Peter R. Newman   Susan, Ian, Barbara  

Susan's description of her home planet was almost directly quoted by the Tenth Doctor in Gridlock, and Planet of the Ood suggested a kinship between the Ood and the equally telepathic Sensorites.

Peter R. Newman based the story on time he spent in a Japanese POW Camp in World War II.

The Doctor loses his original coat, which is ripped when he is attacked by an unseen figure in the aqueduct at the start of "Kidnap", and replaces it with a cloak — marking the first permanent costume change for the Doctor in the series.
This story features the first occurrence of the Doctor's low opinion on the use of weapons.

The Unwilling Warriors
Hidden Danger
A Race Against Death
Kidnap
A Desperate Venture
1st Doctor   Has been released as DVD with some parts animated The Reign of Terror A Land of Fear     Susan, Ian, Barbara Robespierre

Susan asserts that the French Revolution was the First Doctor's favourite period of history.

The TARDIS materialises not far from Paris in 1794 — one of the bloodiest years following the French Revolution of 1789. The travellers become involved with an escape chain rescuing prisoners from the guillotine and get caught up in the machinations of an English undercover spy, James Stirling — alias Lemaitre, governor of the Conciergerie prison.

Planet of Giants

Planet of Giants   Louis Marks    

inspiration for the story was the seminal pro-ecology work by Rachel Carson, Silent Spring, which warned strongly against insecticides. He reckoned that by shrinking the First Doctor, he would have the opportunity to put the TARDIS crew face-to-face with the dangers Carson had warned against in her book. It was, therefore, the first "environmentalist" Doctor Who story, a kind of gently moralistic tale — like Invasion of the Dinosaurs and The Green Death — later to be particularly favoured by Barry Letts.

Though fully scripted and recorded as a four-parter, parts three and four were merged into a single episode, effectively leaving an episode on the cutting room floor. This edited material was not retained — though, some of it made it into the novelisation.

Dangerous Journey
Crisis
1st Doctor The Dalek Invasion of Earth     World's End    

Susan, Ian, Barbara

Susan Foreman leaves to get married.

Daleks

Slyther, a guard dog for the Daleks

The Daleks first started using "exterminate" on a regular basis to refer to the killing of individuals.

The TARDIS materialises beside the River Thames in the year 2167. The world to which they emerge, however, is eerily silent and signs of decay are rife. They soon discover that the streets are patrolled by zombie-like humans, flying saucer-like craft occupy the skies and that desperate rebels are hiding below ground in the disused Underground system. But worse is still to come!

The Daleks, thought destroyed by the Doctor, have invaded and enslaved humanity, having first bombarded it with cosmic storms. Why have the Daleks chosen Earth in particular? What is the significance of the giant mine in Bedfordshire to which they are shipping human slaves? And can the Doctor unite with the small band of resistance fighters to stop the Daleks before their plans wreck havoc with the Earth forever?

As with The Daleks, this story was adapted into a movie entitled Daleks' Invasion Earth 2150 A.D. However, it underperformed and so this was the last Doctor Who serial to be adapted for the cinema.

He points out he is too well known on Earth, so the Time Lords tell him he will change his appearance, as he has before, and present him with images of four faces. He does not like any of them; he is told a decision has been made.

But the Doctor and Jo see only Ogrons – brutish, simian mercenaries who steal the cargo, including the TARDIS, and head off into space.

The Doctor’s investigations take him to Earth, the Moon and then to Draconia itself. He discovers that the Ogrons are employed by his sworn enemy, the Master, who is attempting to provoke a war between the space empires. The Doctor suspects the scale of the plan is too grand for the Master, but even he is shocked to discover the identity of the far deadlier foe waiting in the wings…

        Amy and Rory Dalek

As the Doctor escapes the Asylum, a Dalek-converted-human (Oswin Oswald) prisoner provides critical assistance, which culminates in completely deleting the Doctor from the Dalek hive-consciousness (the PathWeb), thus wiping the slate entirely blank.

Why the Daleks don't just kill the sequestered ones that have "gone wrong". Although the Asylum is subsequently obliterated, the Prime Minister of the Daleks explains that "it is offensive to us to destroy such divine hatred", and the Doctor is sickened at the revelation that hatred is actually considered beautiful by the Daleks.

They need an escape route, and fast – but with an army of mad Daleks closing in, and the Ponds’ relationship in meltdown, it is up to the Doctor to save not only their lives but his friends’ marriage. Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill co-star.
