Doctor Who Classics | The Edge Of Destruction – 1964 | AfterBuzz TV AfterShow

AFTERBUZZ TV — Doctor Who edition, is a weekly “after show” for fans of BBC’s Doctor Who series. In this episode host Katie Cullen, Zach Wilson, and Jesse Klein discuss The classic Doctor Who episode “The Edge Of Destruction” – 1964.

The Edge of Destruction (also referred to as Inside the Spaceship) is the third serial in the British science fiction television series Doctor Who, which was first broadcast in two weekly parts on 8 February and 15 February 1964. It was written by David Whitaker and directed by Richard Martin for the first episode and Frank Cox for the second.

In the story, the Doctor (William Hartnell), his granddaughter Susan (Carole Ann Ford), and her teachers Ian Chesterton (William Russell) and Barbara Wright (Jacqueline Hill) are in the Doctor’s time and space machine the TARDIS when it appears to be taken over by an outside force. The travellers begin acting strangely and turn against each other.

The serial is distinguished as a rare “bottle episode”, in that the entire story is shot on a single set, with just the main cast. It also serves to resolve several character threads that had been presented over the previous eleven weeks.
