The day kicked off at 8.00am with two short features looking at the early years of the series, when William Hartnell was in charge of the TARDIS...
Interviewees included Carole Ann Ford (Susan), Peter Purves (Steven), Colin Baker (Sixth Doctor), Paul McGann (Eighth Doctor) and former producers Verity Lambert and Barry Letts.
A screening of the First Doctor story The Time Meddler (its final appearance on British television to date, fact fans) followed at 8.10am; although these were not the Nigerian prints originally screened by the channel in December 1992, the episode caption ('The Watcher') had been cut, and the current BBC logo was electronically superimposed over the opening titles. Here's all the continuity for your viewing pleasure:
The schedule continued with repeats of The Daemons (10.20am-1.05pm), Pyramids Of Mars (1.05-3.10pm), Attack Of The Cybermen (3.10-5.25pm) and Dragonfire (5.25-7.00pm), finishing just in time for viewers to switch over to BBC1 for Rose (2005). It wouldn't be long before Rose made its debut on UKTV Gold, but we'll come back to that another time. Maybe.
Hope you've enjoyed watching these clips! WhoGold will return on Sunday 10th April 2011.
