Time loopEdit

If the war worlds in a time loop woudlnt they be repeating the advense of this story 4 ever

Season 6B Edit

The Story Notes section says that "there is fan speculation that after The War Games, the Second Doctor was recruited by the CIA (Celestial Intervention Agency) and sent on missions," refferring to Season 6B. The Continuity section states as fact that "the ending of the War Games leads into what some refer to as 'Season 6B'." Does season 6B exist outside of fan speculation. If it does, than the reference to it being a fan theory should be deleted. If it is just speculation, than the statement that this definetly leads into 6B should be deleted.Icecreamdif 18:10, October 10, 2010 (UTC)

England 1917 Edit

The setting infobox includes "England, 1917", but I don't think we ever saw the real planet Earth, just recreations. Even if we did see Earth, wouldn't we have been seeing Belgium or France, given the trenches and German lines? Tbug talk to me 23:56, April 16, 2012 (UTC)

Reverted edits Edit

I have reverted the edits made by user: to this page and Magnus, the War Chief and the Master. Several months ago this user tried to make his point on several talk pages, but failed to provide convincing evidence per this wiki's rules. I reverted the edits and suggested he try the forums; as he did not do so, I've reverted his edits again. Shambala108 16:20, January 29, 2014 (UTC)

David TroughtonEdit

"David Troughton, the son of Patrick Troughton, appeared in his final serial, which in turn, was David's first appearance in the series."

I'm not sure what this sentence is trying to say. It certainly wasn't David's first appearance, that was in The Enemy of the World. to me 15:06, August 10, 2016 (UTC)

Archive StatusEdit

" was the longest Doctor Who story to survive the purging of the BBC's videotape archive..""

Not really true, the videotapes, which never were in an archive, were wiped in the seventies. What we have now are the telerecordings made for overseas sale, like all but a handful of the surviving sixties episodes. to me 15:10, August 10, 2016 (UTC)

Not A MythEdit

"Doctor Who was under serious threat of being cancelled at the end of this season. (Although this is Terrance Dicks's recollection, it has been denied by both Peter Bryant and Derrick Sherwin and is not borne out by contemporary evidence, although the viewership numbers were considerably lower than they would be at the time of the original series' cancellation in 1989. The series would, however, face the threat of cancellation at the end of the following season.)"

Jeremy Bentham wrote an in depth article covering this, for the season 6 special of An Adventure In Space & Time (Page S6-09). Many options were considered as a Doctor Who replacement, including a Jules Verne style adventure series, and a resurrection of Quatermass (the latter vetoed by Kneale). Finally, they decided to keep Doctor Who but make it a lot more like Quatermass in style. to me 10:32, December 20, 2017 (UTC)
