Therefore, its known narrative elements are not a part of the Doctor Who universe. It may have been the basis for a similar story in another medium, however — and that story may indeed be a part of the DWU.

- "As a typical commercial production for unsophisticated listeners in Australia or even some parts of the United States, it stands up quite well. As a piece of science fiction, however, it strikes me as extremely feeble."
Although the story was advertised as starring Peter Cushing, and he had played the theatrical film version of Dr. Who before, it's decidedly certain that he would not actually have been playing the same version of the character in this series. Certainly, there is no precedent in either film or television for a character called "Mike".
Dr. Who travels back in time to the American Civil War with Susan and Mike.

The back story of the Dr. Who character in this story is somewhat a mix of the 1960 film's and that of the original TV series'. Dr. Who and Susan are from the far future of Earth, where time travel is possible, but a malfunction in their machine makes it so they can not choose where to land. They decide to spend some time in the '60's to investigate the issue, where Susan begins going to school and meets Mike.
