Completely agree with all your comments Tim, i think Hartnell should’ve left in The War Machines as he’s clearly struggling here, the Cybermen look awful & judging by there appearance here I’m surprised they became popular, thankfully they looked more menacing in The Moonbase.

I wish Episode 4 had survived as the switch to animation is quite jarring & this story lacks something for me i found the conclusion lacklustre & the regeneration wasn’t touched upon he just collaspes & regenerates.

Yes William Hartnell should have left in ‘The War Machines’ as he was clearly at his best in that story. I could feel a lack of presence with William Hartnell’s Doctor in this story and that’s not just with him being absent from ‘Episode Three’.

Following the discovery of the planet Neptune in 1846, there was considerable speculation that another planet might exist beyond its orbit. The search began in the mid-19th century and culminated at the start of the 20th with Percival Lowell 's quest for Planet X. Lowell proposed the Planet X hypothesis to explain apparent discrepancies in the orbits of the giant planets, particularly Uranus and Neptune, [1] speculating that the gravity of a large unseen ninth planet could have perturbed Uranus enough to account for the irregularities. [2]

While the astronomical community widely agrees that Planet X, as originally envisioned, does not exist, the concept of an as-yet-unobserved planet has been revived by a number of astronomers to explain other anomalies observed in the outer Solar System. [5] As of March 2014, observations with the WISE telescope have ruled out the possibility of a Saturn -sized object (95 Earth mass) out to 10,000 AU , and a Jupiter -sized (≈318 Earth mass) or larger object out to 26,000 AU. [6]

In the 1840s, the French mathematician Urbain Le Verrier used Newtonian mechanics to analyse perturbations in the orbit of Uranus, and hypothesised that they were caused by the gravitational pull of a yet-undiscovered planet. Le Verrier predicted the position of this new planet and sent his calculations to German astronomer Johann Gottfried Galle . On 23 September 1846, the night following his receipt of the letter, Galle and his student Heinrich d'Arrest discovered Neptune, exactly where Le Verrier had predicted. [10] There remained some slight discrepancies in the giant planets ' orbits. These were taken to indicate the existence of yet another planet orbiting beyond Neptune.

Final adventure for the first incarnation of television's favourite time traveller. The Doctor (William Hartnell), Ben and Polly arrive at the South Pole Tracking station in 1986, just as a strange satellite enters Earth's orbit, affecting the latest space mission. The Doctor predicts that the new arrival is Mondas, Earth's long-lost twin planet, and is proved correct when the base is invaded by the Cybermen, the planet's ruthlessly logical and seemingly invulnerable inhabitants.

The Tenth Planet is the second serial of the fourth season in the British science fiction television series Doctor Who , which was first broadcast in four weekly parts from 8 to 29 October 1966. It was William Hartnell 's last regular appearance as the First Doctor , and the first story to feature the process of regeneration , whereby the lead character, The Doctor , undergoes a transformation into a new physical form. Patrick Troughton makes his first, uncredited appearance as the Second Doctor .

The serial is also notable as the first story to feature the Cybermen , a race of malevolent cyborgs that became a recurring adversary in later Doctor Who stories. The "tenth planet" in the title makes reference to a fictional lost planet in Earth's Solar System ; at the time of production, the Solar System was generally held to consist of nine planets, prior to the redesignation of Pluto as a minor planet . [1]

The Tenth Planet is an incomplete Doctor Who serial — one of many serials that were affected by the BBC 's policy of wiping archived programmes in the 1960s and 70s. Only three of the four episodes are currently held in the BBC archives; the last episode remains missing, although several short clips, including the regeneration sequence, have been discovered intact. In 2013, The Tenth Planet was released on DVD with a full-length animated reconstruction of its missing footage . [2]
