The TARDIS arrives near Paris during the French Revolution, a time of great upheaval, bloodshed and terror. Soon, with the Doctor trapped inside a burning farmhouse, Ian imprisoned and Susan and Barbara on their way to the guillotine it's clear this will be one of their most dangerous and exciting adventures yet ...
Dalek creator Terry Nation introduced fellow writer Dennis Spooner to the Doctor Who Production Office in 1963. Spooner would go on to become Story Editor for much of the second season, but his first assignment as writer was to tackle the bloodthirsty French Revolution in the final slot of the programme's first season.
Inspired by the story of The Starlet Pimpernel, Spooner used the revolutionary setting to weave a tale of secret identity and subterfuge, as the Doctor and his companions become embroiled in an underground resistance operation, smuggling would-be guillotine victims to safety in England.
Spooner's richly-drawn supporting characters, sparkling dialogue and injections of humour mean the story rockets along, while the regular cast, Hartnell in particular, turn in some of their best performances.
This stylish, confident six-parter betrays little of the story's behind-the-scenes dramas (examined in the making-of documentary on this DVD). It stands as one of the very best examples of purely-historical Doctor Who, and is one of the underrated gems of the William Hartnell era.
Sadly, as with many black and white Doctor Who stories, two episodes of The Reign of Terror remain missing from the BBC Archives. But thanks to talented artists and computer boffins, they have been recreated in animated form - allowing us to enjoy a complete version of this story once again.
