Search Out Space was a special edition of Search Out Science, a children's education programme in which Sylvester McCoy and Sophie Aldred appeared as the Seventh Doctor and Ace. John Leeson provided the voice of K9 for the first time since The Five Doctors.

It was broadcast nearly a year after Survival, which marked the end of the original Doctor Who series.

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

The Ultimate Challenge title card.

The Seventh Doctor, Ace, K9 and Cedric are taking part of a game show to see who can host The Ultimate Challenge.

They will show you the Earth and its Solar System.

Plot[edit | edit source]

For unexplained reasons the Seventh incarnation of the Doctor is acting as the host of a gameshow.

The contestants are his companion Ace, former companion K9 and an alien named Cedric.

The contestants are forced to answer fairly basic questions about space with severe punishments if they get it wrong. K9 fails to answer on time and is transported to outer space where he almost ends up being pulled into the sun. The Doctor saves him in the Tardis but only just manages to dematerialise before the Tardis is also pulled into the sun.

Eventually Ace deduces that there is no answer to one of the questions and the Doctor says she is right and bizarrely produces an ice cream as if by magic.
