I just found this...

In the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode The Neutral Zone, as Dianna Troi helps a woman from the past search for living family members the computer screen flashes up a family tree with the names William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee, Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker
I vaguely remembered watching this when it was first aired, but had forgotten about it.  I have just grabbed screenshots though.


In the episode, Claire Raymond is a housewife who was frozen, and revived by Dr Crusher, and it's her family tree that is shown above.  Note that her paternal grandfather is Jonathon Frakes Raymond (Jonathon Frakes played Will Riker)

The next 'page' on the screen was:

This now shows Jonathon Frakes Raymond top left, and under him, Brent Spiner Raymond (Brent Spiner plays Data), Denise Poole Raymond I can't find a reference for, Marina Sirtis Raymond (Marina Sirtis played Deanna Troi) and LeVar Burton Raymond (LeVar Burton played Geordi LaForge).  On the right side, however, we can see William Hartnell, Jon Pertwee and Peter Davidson.


The last 'page' on the screen was:

This clearly has the first 6 doctors, listed in order on the left side.
Unfortunately, the rest is too fuzzy to read on these screenshots, but if anyone can translate it all, I'd be interested to see if there are any other Who-related names there...

Interestingly, at least from my point of view, the middle column of the middle picture seems to consist of characters from M*A*S*H  Smiley

Can't read the rest of pic three though - too blurry for my eyes  Undecided

Well spotted - I hadn't noticed that, but I think you are right!

Pyramids of Mars is the only story in the whole of the classic run where Mars was depicted on screen.

The first story to feature the Doctor's Sonic Screwdriver was Fury from the Deep. The last classic DW to feature the screwdriver was The Visitation, where it was destroyed by the Terilleptils. The sonic was resurrected by RTD.

At this time exactly 48 years ago, I was still coming down from the impact of watching a strange new TV show with a weird electronic theme-tune.

You'd think the BBC would have put an episode on BBC3 or something, but nothing.

Following on from that, probably the most random fact ever posted here.  The programme Doctor Who immediately replaced in the schedule in 1963 was the American cartoon show Deputy Dawg, which had a regular character named after someone who would much, much later figure in Doctor Who.  He was called Vincent Van Gopher.

Wouldn't that mean it was on like a year before the anniversary though?

I think it was more to celebrate the 10th Season rather than the 10th year.
