You think you know everything about Doctor Who? Much the same as his sprawling time machine, the Doctor’s mythology and secrets are very expensive and weird. This makes it impossible to fit it in a limited space. Here are 10 things you might not have known about Doctor Who.
10) Three Distinct Races
Three different races have furtively guided humankind and helped us build up our technology. The Daemon, Azal, reveals that the Daemons have helped mankind to progress to its current sophistication with complexity, and we’re now to be tried (in “The Daemons.”) The Fendahl have guided the entire of mankind’s history to the minute where it could be released (in “Image of the Fendahl.”) And Scaroth, last of the Jagaroth, utilizes his different time-splintered selves to help humankind propel all the more rapidly all through history, so he can assemble a time machine in the twentieth century. (“City of Death.”) Also, there are some ramifications that the Osirians (from “Pyramids of Mars”) guided mankind here and there.
9) The Doctor Nearly Met God.
John Wiles, assumed control as producer of the show after Verity Lambert, the original producer, left in 1965. Wiles wanted to push the show in a more exploratory direction. What’s more, one of his ideas was a story called “The Face of God.” According to Wiles, the TARDIS is halted in mid-air by this huge face which claims to be that of God himself. Obviously towards the end it was not as it appeared. Wiles was stunned to see his idea show up in the film Star Trek V: The Final Frontier.
