Jon Pertwee's Doctor reflected the popularity of James Bond and his era featured a significant increase in filmed action sequences. The series even had its resident stunt team during this period.

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.
Although there are over 100 lost episodes from the 1960s, all of them exist in audio-only form, due to fans' off-air recordings made at the time of broadcast. These have been issued in audiobook format.
