On a giant colony ship reversing away from a black hole, Bill finds herself trapped at the opposite end from the Doctor, in a zone where time runs considerably faster. Ten years pass before the Doctor arrives to rescue her, only to discover she has undergone a horrifying transformation…

Now d’you see this mad woman sitting in this chair? Her name isn’t Doctor Who. My name is Doctor Who.”

For more than 30 years, we’ve been repeatedly told that ‘Doctor Who’ is just the name of the programme, not its lead character. But as so many of us have known all along, that was just revisionist nonsense. Throughout the 1960s and 70s, the Doctor was always called Doctor Who – by the producers, scriptwriters, cast and crew, BBC executives and viewers alike. The character was consistently listed on screen as either ‘Dr. Who’ or ‘Doctor Who’ (from 1963 to 1981, plus 2005) on the end titles, and referred to by that name in production paperwork, scripts, feature films, books, comic strips and other officially licensed merchandise.
