Doctor Who and the Daleks in Seven Keys to Doomsday[1] was a stage play that originally ran in the period of transition between Jon Pertwee and Tom Baker on television. In-theatre monitors ran pictures of Pertwee's face before Trevor Martin emerged as the newly-regenerated Doctor. In a sense, then, the story featured the original Fourth Doctor. In its original run, it also featured Wendy Padbury as one of the companions, making her the first actor to ever play two different companions in BBC-licensed productions.

Decades after its original run it was adapted for audio by Big Finish.

Summary Edit

The Doctor and his two newest companions, Jenny and Jimmy, prevent the Daleks and their crab-like slaves, the Clawrantulars, finding the seven crystals of Karn which would enable them to control all life in the universe.

Notes Edit

  • The play would open with screens showing Jon Pertwee's face changing into Trevor Martin's, followed by Martin entering dressed as the Third Doctor, apparently having only regenerated. Jenny and Jimmy would rush from the audience to help him, then become his companions for the adventure.
  • The original conception had the Third Doctor as the protagonist.
  • The main setting for this stage play was the planet Karn; Terrence Dicks reused the name of this planet in TV: The Brain of Morbius.
  • The play has been recreated by Big Finish Productions as an audio drama. Trevor Martin reprises his role as the alternative Fourth Doctor.
  • A licensed french adaptation was produced in 1986, it starred Michael Sagar as the Doctor.
