The Hartnell Years
“We are not of this race. We are not of this Earth. We are wanderers in the fourth dimension of space and time.”
On the 23rd November 1963 Gallifrey’s most famous time traveller, The Doctor, began his wanderings in his first incarnation – William Hartnell – the anti-hero with a heart of gold. So began the Hartnell years – 1963-1966.
28 years later, The Doctor’s seventh incarnation, Sylvester McCoy, takes us back through time, through previously untransmitted or rare episodes.
