Adventures of a Gallifreyan Time Lord, known as the Doctor, and his companions, traveling through time and space.
The first companion to leave the show by dying was the teenaged Adric, whose most noteworthy attribute seemed to be a gold badge for mathematical excellence. He was killed off in Doctor Who: Earthshock: Part Four (1982).
Superior intelligence and senseless cruelty just do not go together.
While several episodes made use of teaser sequences before the opening credits (though only a handful in the show's 26-year history), the 1970 7-part story "The Ambassadors of Death" was unique in that it was an experiment in changing the format of the opening credits that was not repeated. At the start of each chapter, the credits would begin as usual but end right after the title "Doctor Who" appeared (before the episode and writer titles appeared). A brief teaser then followed, followed by the remainder of the opening sequence, as usual. Another story from the same season, "Inferno", also altered the format of the opening credits slightly by showing the episode and writer titles over footage of bubbling lava.
