The Doctor Who series has been the subject of different urban myths all through its years. However, the theory has just added to its continuous legacy. The vast majority of gossip about the main Time Lord’s progressing adventures ends up being just gossip. Nevertheless, in some cases there’s a level of truth to be found amongst the created fiction, as this rundown will illustrate. Here are 7 such legends…
7. Medieval Mishaps
The entertainer, actor, author, presenter and lobbyist Stephen Fry is one of numerous names whose endeavours to loan their imagination to the show were in vein. In his case, it was for an episode that was initially slated to be part of NuWho’s second series and David Tennants first in the role as the Tenth Doctor, in 2006.
Russell T Davies, the show’s then head writer inevitably chose that the adventure Fry had imagined was unreasonably ambitious for the show’s budget to handle. When Fry got around to rolling out the important changes, the role of the Doctor’s buddy was no more possessed by Billie Piper and he just didn’t have time to redraft the story for the show’s new co-star Martha Jones.
As per theory, however, the episode being referred to would’ve been set in the 1920s. Other reports suggested that it would’ve been loosely based on a medieval ballad about Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.
6. The Odds Were Against Him

Others said he was significantly worse than his decently popular predecessor Colin Baker. Goodness gracious.
It wasn’t bad news news for poor old McCoy only. As it is, his first friend Melanie Bush, played by Bonnie Langford, likewise endured a turbulent tenure in the TARDIS, both on and off screen. An avalanche 56% of poll respondents revealed that they wished she’d really been eaten amid the 1987 serial Paradise Towers.
