D is for....

Dinosaurs on a Spaceship

Dinosaurs on a Spaceship was the second episode of the seventh series of Doctor Who produced by BBC Wales. With this episode, a member of the Williams family is finally introduced by name, specifically Rory's father. It also showed how much more technologically advanced the Silurians were; they created the Ark to house dinosaurs and some of their species when the Moon was about to align with Earth.

It is what the Daleks say a lot, and most likely the last thing you will ever hear.

F is for...

Fang Rock

A rock off the south coast of England on which a lighthouse is situated.  There was a legend about the Beast of Fang Rock, which was said to have previously either killed or driven mad the lighthouse crew.  In about 1902, Fang Rock was attacked by a lone Rutan, aiming to create a base on Earth for their war against the Sontarans.  In the course of a night, the Rutan killed the three members of the lighthouse crew and the four survivors from a shipwreck, but the Doctor and Leela succeeded in destroying both it and the Rutan mother-ship.

These incidents may have partly inspired Wilfred Gibson's poem Flannan Isle.

Horror of Fang Rock

Horror of Fang Rock was the first story of Season 15 of Doctor Who. Graham Williams' three-year stint as producer of the series began with this story. It is the only time that the Rutan Host — the oft-mentioned mortal enemies of the Sontarans — have been depicted in a broadcast television story.

Isomorphic controls

Isomorphic controls could only be operated by one user. One such device was the Master's laser screwdriver. The Tenth Doctor attempted to use it to overpower the Master, only to be ridiculed when he could not. At one point, the Doctor's TARDIS key was also said to be isomorphic.

J is for...

Jethryk

Jethryk is the rarest and most valuable in the galaxy, and is the means used by two interstellar conmen, Garron and Unstoffe, to "sell" worthless planets to unsuspecting marks.  Their attempt to sell the planet Ribos to Graf Vynda-K comes unstuck, though, and it turns out that the jethryk they're using is actually a segment of the Key to Time.

Let's Kill Hitler

Let's Kill Hitler was the eighth episode in the sixth series of Doctor Who and the first episode in the autumn half. It was, in a sense, the second episode of a two-part story, preceded by A Good Man Goes to War. Much like A Good Man Goes to War, it revealed much about River Song's origins, also dealing with Amy and Rory's childhood and how they became a couple. Additionally, it explained why the Silence had been trying to kill the Doctor.

M is for...

Mercy

Mercy is a small town in the American west.  Its state is unknown, but it's described as being 200 miles north of the Mexican border, so possibly Texas.  In 1870, its population was 81, having a few years earlier taken in the alien doctor Kahler-Jex, who successfully treated an outbreak of cholera and given the town electric lighting. 

At that time, a cyborg gunslinger Jex had created as a weapon of war tracks him down and demands Jex be handed over.  Jex is protected by the US Marshal Isaac and then by the Doctor and the townspeople, but eventually sacrifices himself to end the danger.  Since Isaac has also been killed (reducing the population to 79) the Doctor persuades the Gunslinger to stay on as Marshal, a post he fulfils to this day.  Mercy now has no sherrif or police force - just the Gunslinger.

N is for...

New Earth

New Earth was the 1st episode of Series Two of the revived Doctor Who, and the middle of the "New Earth" trilogy also containing The End of the World and Gridlock. It featured reappearances of Cassandra O'Brien and the Face of Boe, and introduced a mystery surrounding the Face that would later be a major part of the overall story arc of Series 3. It was also the first BBC Wales episode to be almost entirely set off Earth and beyond Earth orbit.

O is for...

Ogrons

The Ogrons are a race that look a little like a cross between humans and gorillas who live on a planet on the edges of the galaxy.  They're strong and tenacious but of very low intelligence and hire themselves out as mercenaries. They've served the Daleks on at least two occasions and seem terrified of them.  They also both worship and fear an aggressive monster that lives on their planet.

P is for...

Patrick Troughton

Patrick George Troughton (born 25 March 1920 Mill Hill, London, England, UK – died 28 March 1987 Columbus, Georgia, USA) played the Second Doctor from 1966 until 1969.After he was cast, Troughton considered various ways to approach the role, to differentiate his portrayal from Hartnell's amiable-yet-tetchy patriarch. Troughton's early thoughts about how he might play the Doctor included a "tough sea captain" and a piratical "Arabian Knight" figure with a blackface, a grey beard, brass eye-rings and a turban. On "Pebble Mill at One", Troughton stated that this way, when his work on Doctor Who finished he could wash the blackface makeup off, shave his beard, remove the turban and eye-rings and then he would not get typecast because no one would recognise him. Of course this idea was rejected for obvious reasons. Doctor Who co-creator Sydney Newman suggested that the Doctor could be a "cosmic hobo" in the mould of Charlie Chaplin. This was the interpretation eventually chosen.

Quarks

Quarks were the robot slaves of the Dominators' galactic empire. Quarks were cuboid in shape with a sphere on top. Two spikes came from opposite sides of this sphere, with one on top. They were able to use their guns to kill directly, stun, electrocute, communicate and to power up objects.

R is for...

Rills

The Rills are an amonia-breathing species that look vaguely like giant slugs.  They are at war with the human-like Drahvins, but are an honourable people who aren't vindictive to their enemies and show willingness to help them when they're in trouble - an attitude the Drahvins don't reciprocate.  The Rills employ squat robot servants which they have no specific name for, but which Vicki nicknames Chumblies.

The Slitheen were rivals and cousins of the Blathereen family, cousins of the Rackateen family and descendants of the Slavereen who were descended from the Changleen family, the earliest descendants of the Huspick Degenerate. They faced off against both the Doctor and Sarah Jane Smith.

T is for...

Time Vortex

The Time Vortex is the medium through which a time machine such as the TARDIS moves in between dematerialisation and rematerialisation.  Although it's never been clearly explained, the vortex is presumably a five-dimensional "space" that enables the time traveller to take a short-cut between two points of the space-time continuum, and it's home to the Chronovores.  The Time Vortex is seen in various versions of the title sequence to Doctor Who.
