Doctor Who News
"The Faceless Ones" is the mostly missing eighth
serial of the fourth season of Doctor Who, which was
first broadcast in six weekly parts from April to
May 1967, starring Patrick Troughton as the Doctor.
Only two of the six episodes are held in the BBC
film archives with snippets of footage and still
images existing from the other four. Fortunately,
off-air recordings of the soundtrack also still
exist, making the animation of a complete serial
possible once again. The Faceless Ones sees the
TARDIS arrive on Earth at a runway at Gatwick
Airport in England, where the Doctor and his
companions encounter sinister identity-stealing
aliens known as the Chameleons. The first three
episodes of Doctor Who: The Faceless Ones premiere
back-to-back on Wednesday, October 7th at 8 p.m.
ET/PT with the last three episodes premiering
back-to-back on Thursday, October 8th at 8 p.m.
