With actors Anneke Wills, Deborah Watling, Wendy Padbury and Frazer Hines, producer and script editor Derrick Sherwin, writer and script editor Terrance Dicks, director Christopher Barry, writer Victor Pemberton and new series writer Robert Shearman, and new series script editor Gary Russell. Narrated by Richard Heffer.
Writers, directors, actors and other people associated with Doctor Who discuss Patrick Troughton's time as the Second Doctor, from his first appearance at the end of The Tenth Planet to his final appearance in The War Games.
