Welcome to the first edition of the mrlewismoon adventures online episode review, today we are looking at the first part of an unearthly child, and looking why it is so good for fans. Also, we look at the plot, and this episode is the first episode of doctor who. Comment on the forum for your opinions.
The first episode starts in a junkyard in contemporary London and introduces the four characters who were to form the core of the first year's production: the Doctor, schoolteachers Ian Chesterton and Barbara Wright, who are concerned about one of their pupils at Coal Hill School named Susan Foreman, who seems to have a very alien outlook on England.
Susan is precocious, but seems to have strange gaps in her understanding of the world, the teachers have come to her listed address to investigate. Here they encounter a police box, the programme's main prop, known as the TARDIS, from within which they hear Susan's voice. At that time, the boxes were a common sight in Britain, but only police officers held a key to them. The TARDIS proves to be no ordinary police box: when Ian and Barbara enter, they discover it to be much bigger on the inside than the outside, and furnished with futuristic-looking controls. The time machine retains its outward appearance when it travels through time, which Susan explains as a malfunction in the circuitry that is supposed to adapt its appearance to its surroundings.
If you had a weird and wacky spin off series, at the mrlewismoon world, we think that the policeman would be a good spin off. We think this episode was one of the best classic episodes, probably in my top three of Hartnell episodes. We also thought the scene at the start of the day of the doctor re-created the scene at the start very well, and this was the start of a TV legend...
