Barbara Wright, “Babs” to us, was a teacher of Susan’s and a fan of knitted cardigans. Alongside fellow faculty member, Ian Chesterton, she followed her to A. M. Foreman’s scrapyard, and into the TARDIS, and so unwittingly became one of The Doctor’s first companions.
The Doc’s now a mere human; Susan should be in primary school; Barbara is her sister; and Ian just wants to tap-dance. What the actual f**k?!
The Doctor says farewell to two trusted companions, but first they battle Desert Squids, Frankenstein’s Monster, Dracula and Spherical Daleks.
The Doctor, Barbara, Ian and not-short-for-Victoria unfreeze on Xeros, are about to be frozen again, and then help some kids kill lots of grownups.
The troupe arrive in 12th century Palestine where Doc steals clothes, Ian is knighted, Vicky is inconsequential and Barb gets kidnapped (as usual)
Doc & Co team up with butterflies and Rastafarian centipedes to battle man-sized ants, laser-nosed DustBusters and a giant wig from outer space
The Doc & Friends sport togas, eat grapes and commit murder, not to mention meet Emperor Nero himself, in this glorious serial
The Doctor, Barbara and Ian rescue a surrogate granddaughter from the clutches of a madman on the planet Dido
Daleks have invaded the Earth! Thank goodness The Doctor’s accidentally piloted the troupe right smack into the centre of it all.
Doc & Co turn into thimble-sized tree-huggers and match wits with giant matchboxes and murderers in this prop-fuelled serial.
