When the spaceship UK-201 crashed on the planet in 2493, the Dido people met with the surviving passengers, but were killed along with them in an explosion engineered by Bennett to cover up a murder he had earlier committed aboard the ship. At least two of the Dido people survived, and when they confronted him, he backed away in fear and fell from a rock ledge to his death.
Behind the scenes Edit
- The Rescue doesn't give us a clear, one-word demonym for "a being from the planet Dido". The name Dido people is what the First Doctor directly called them in "Desperate Measures". The Time-Travellers' Guide refers to them as Didoi.
- The appearance of the two Dido people in "Desperate Measures" is never explained.
- The two Dido people were played by John Stuart and Colin Hughes, who remained uncredited both on-screen and in Radio Times. (DWM 325)
