  • Notes

    • This story features the Doctor's second, and only forced, regeneration, as the Time Lords impose a change of appearance as well as exile to Earth. It is unclear how precisely they triggered the regeneration, or how they were able to determine the form of his new incarnation. The full horror of the punishment - effectively an execution - was not made clear until later in the series. See The Planet of the Spiders, Part Six and The Deadly Assassin, Part Four.
