The adventures of a Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey known only as the Doctor, who travels through time and space fighting monsters and other villainous megalomaniacs with companions.
John Nathan-Turner said he cast Peter Davison as the Fifth Doctor because he had "the right combination of light humour, drama and realism, is very popular with children, and has a large following with feminine viewers".
This is madness. The Daleks won't thank you for capturing me, they'll kill you.
Stein: I didn't quite tell you the truth. I serve the Daleks. I'm a Dalek agent.
Daleks: Exterminate the doctor!
Daleks: Exterminate the doctor! Exterminate! Exterminate!
For most of the Hartnell era, the episode title appeared superimposed over the first scene (after the title sequence had completed). Later, and continuing on occasion during the Troughton era, the episode title and writer credit would be presented in a unique format (i.e. in the form of a computer print-out for "The War Machine", for example). When the opening credits were redesigned during the Troughton era (and now incorporated an image of the Doctor's face), the episode title and writer credit were usually included during this sequence.
