William’s Perseverance

William Hartnell’s deteriorating health sadly made The Three Doctors his final on screen appearance.

At the point where the show first began to celebrate its long past and looked forward to a future where the Doctor could finally travel outside of Earth again its a shame that at this exciting time that William Hartnell couldn’t manage anything more than the pre-filmed sequences that make up his appearance in this serial.

Suffering from arteriosclerosis and unable to meet the demands of the already announced opening serial of season ten William’s Perseverance charts the production teams efforts to include the man who first brought the Doctor to life in the programmes ten year anniversary special.

The clip comes from the Revisitations 3 boxset which also includes The Tomb of the Cybermen and Robots of Death – plus loads of new extra features –  is available now to pre-order for an excellent £25.97 from Amazon and is released on 13th February.
