Full Circle

Romana: "The Time Lords want me back."
The Doctor: "Yes, well, you only came to help with the Key to Time."
Romana: "Doctor, I don't want to spend the rest of my life on Gallifrey - after all this!"

Trying to get Romana back to Gallifrey, after being summoned home by the Time Lords the TARDIS appears to have landed on Gallifrey, but the Doctor and Romana have actually landed on a planet with misty marshes and a crashed spaceship… But they are not in the normal universe. They have somehow fallen into Exo-Space.
This was the first time the series featured a story written by a fan. The young Andrew Smith.  The production team were very impressed by him. Andrew’s knowledge of the show certainly shows, practically in the first episode, with many continuity references, to the Invasion of Time and the Key to Time.  But Full Circle is more than just a fan story.

In an effort to connect with younger viewers the story features a new companion Adric, played by Matthew Waterhouse, originally conceived to be a kind of artful dodger, often getting in trouble he becomes a student of the Fourth Doctor and quarrels with the Fifth.

So if you have the DVD stacked on your shelf, the classic VHS tucked away in a box then be prepared for 7.30pm GMT. Have a drink and some food and get ready to join in with the @DoctorWhoBar from

Though we fully support the DVD releases, you can also watch it online on You Tube, as it has been uploaded by the BBC to their official site.
