The Space Museum, 1965

The seventh story in Doctor Who’s second season was first broadcast in four weekly parts in 1965.

The first episode of this story was generally well received by critics and still is.  However the remaining three parts failed to live up to expectations.

The Space Museum is also notable for the absence of William Hartnell during episode three, he was away on holiday at the time of recording.
