The Five Faces of Doctor Who was a season of repeats organised by John Nathan-Turner, broadcast on BBC Two on Monday to Thursday evenings and which began in November 1981.

He chose five four-part stories from the first four Doctors, including Logopolis as it featured the first on-screen appearance of Peter Davison's Fifth Doctor, and doing so justified the title of the season itself.

The stories chosen and the repeat transmission dates were:

Originally, Season 14's opening four-parter The Masque of Mandragora would also have been included to represent the Tom Baker era. However, the season was curtailed from six stories to five at short notice to avoid interfering with the BBC's scheduled Christmas programming.

A second season of repeats, titled Doctor Who and the Monsters, was broadcast on BBC One the following year.
