- King of the Savages - Peter Purves, who played space pilot Steven Taylor in the mid-Sixties, has long been one of the few Doctor Who regulars who rarely spoke about the show. That changed when, earlier this year, he attended his first Who convention Manoptican 3. More recently, he talked to Steve Lyons and Chris Howarth at his home, a beautiful sixteen century rectory near Northampton.
- What the Censor Saw - The Jon Pertwee era saw alien menaces encroach on the previously unexplored domains of children's toys, the police and religion. The world was changing and, as Marcus Hearn discovers in the third part of his series, Doctor Who was growing up.
