    In Marco Polo, the famous Venetian explorer plans to give the TARDIS to Kublai Khan - unless the Doctor and his companions can stop him.

    In The Reign of Terror, the Doctor, Ian, Barbara and Susan are caught up in the bloody events of the French Revolution.

    In The Crusade, the TARDIS materialises in the middle of a 12th Century holy war between Richard the Lionheart and the Saracen Saladin.

    In Galaxy 4, the Doctor, Steven and Vicki meet the Drahvins and the Rills on a planet just one day away from destruction.

    In The Myth Makers, the Doctor is hailed as the Greek god Zeus and forced to help defeat the Trojans. He forms the idea of a wooden horse…

    Special linking narration is provided by William Russell, Carole Ann Ford and Peter Purves, who also recall their time making the original episodes in a series of bonus interviews.

William Emms was a scriptwriter who wrote for a variety of television programmes including The Revenue Men (1967-68), Callan (1969-70), Ace of Wands (1970), Z Cars (1965-71) and Crossroads (1980). In 1965, he wrote Galaxy 4, the first serial in the third season of Doctor Who. It was broadcast in four weekly parts from 11 September to 2 October. Emms wrote several further scripts for Doctor Who, but they were not commissioned. However, in 1985 his novelisation of Galaxy 4 was published as a Target book, and the following year, he wrote a novel in the Make Your Own Adventure with Doctor Who range of children's gamebooks, entitled Mission to Venus. He died in 1993.
