It featured Ian Chesterton on screen for the first time since The Chase in 1965, thus a 34 year gap between appearances. As of 2018[update], this is Ian Chesterton's last on screen appearance. William Russell later appeared in An Adventure in Space and Time as Harry the security guard, and in the same story Jamie Glover (son of Julian Glover and Isla Blair) played Russell himself.
Synopsis EditIan Chesterton is going to tell you a story of something that happened over 30 years ago.
He recalls his adventures with the First Doctor and tells us he is absolutely certain that the Doctor is still travelling in time and space, knowing about regeneration possibly due to meeting the Doctor's seventh incarnation earlier in his life.
He told us how the Doctor was old when he was young. He later went on to say that he kept a knight statue within his study room as a reminder of the adventure. He tells us if he told people everything that they'd think he was mad.
He went on to say if he actually wanted people to think he was really mad then he could tell people his name was Sir Ian Chesterton as he was knighted over "700 years ago".
Chesterton makes us aware of how the adventure ended and went back to his book cabinet and began to read. Ian will never forget... the Doctor.
