Fifty years ago this month, four events occurred in the history of Doctor Who- the first appearance of the Cybermen in the story “The Tenth Planet;” William Hartnell’s final regular appearance in the role of the Doctor; the change of actors, and how it was approached; and the first appearance of Patrick Troughton in the role of the Doctor.  Each week, we will touch on those elements of the period.  This week- a primer, with John Peel, who watched the show behind the sofa as a kid in 1966- and also is an established author of original science fiction, novelisations and original fiction based on “Doctor Who,’ and also co-author with Terry Nation on the 1988 release “The Official Doctor Who and the Daleks Book.”
