Season 13: Misc


Dr Who

Up to date as of January 31, 2010

From TARDIS Index File, the free Doctor Who reference.

The thirteenth season of Doctor Who ran between 30th August 1975 and 6th March 1976. It starred Tom Baker as the Fourth Doctor. With this season, Doctor Who returned to launching new seasons in the fall, something that had not been done since Season 6.



Season 13 consisted of 6 serials, and 26 episodes. It was during this season that the Doctor cut ties with UNIT (After Terror of the Zygons, The Brigadier would not appear again until Mawdryn Undead in 1983, and The Seeds of Doom marked the last occasion to date that the Doctor is explicitly said to be working for UNIT -- as opposed to working with them as occasions warranted). Several of the serials in this season, particularly Pyramids of Mars and The Brain of Morbius, are among the best-known of the 1970s-era storylines. Though it was aired as a part of Season 13, Terror of the Zygons was actually filmed as part of the previous season; this holdover allowed the series to switch back to a fall season start.
