Andrews in “The Carnival of Monsters” and afterward played Harry Sullivan for almost an year. Lalla Ward was the amazingly named Princess Astra in “The Armageddon Factor” before getting to be Romana.

7) The Fourth Doctor, Tom Baker, Attempted To Make Two Or Three Doctor Who Films.
One of them was Doctor Who Meets Scratchman, a film in which the Doctor would have gone head to head with the Devil (otherwise known as Scratchman) alongside Daleks and robots called Cybors. Also, both Vincent Price and Twiggy would have co-starred. And afterward there was Doctor Who and the Krikkitmen, which Baker attempted to create with then-author Douglas Adams, who ended up utilizing a considerable lot of the ideas as a part of his third Hitchhiker’s book, Life, The Universe and Everything.
