Season 19: Misc


Dr Who

Up to date as of January 31, 2010

From TARDIS Index File, the free Doctor Who reference.

Season 19 of Doctor Who ran between 4th January 1982 and 31st March 1982. It starred Peter Davison in his first season as the Fifth Doctor. With this season, the BBC returned the series to a mid-winter season start, which had last been done for Season 12 and had been the format throughout the Jon Pertwee era.



The season consisted of seven serials and 26 episodes airing on a bi-weekly schedule. Two milestones occurred in Earthshock. Firstly, the Cybermen returned, un-announced for the first time since Revenge of the Cybermen. Secondly, for the first time since The Daleks' Master Plan which had aired in 1965 and 1966 a companion died. Other milestones included Black Orchid, the first non-science fictional historical serial since 1966's The Gunfighters, and the destruction of the sonic screwdriver in The Visitation. A cliffhanger ending to the series appeared to have left Tegan stranded at Heathrow Airport with the Doctor abandoning her by mistake.

Originally, this series was going to have 28 episodes-2 more than normal. However, John Nathan-Turner used 2 of the allocated episodes for the failed pilot to K9 & Company.
