On the 23rd November 1963 Gallifrey's most famous time traveller, the Doctor, began his wanderings in his first incarnation - William Hartnell - the anti-hero with a heart of gold. So began the Hartnell years - 1963-1966.
28 years later, the Doctor's seventh incarnation, Sylvester McCoy, takes us back through time, through previously unstransmitted or rare episodes.
