The Aliens In The Blood The Second Doctor
Writer: Robert Holmes Notes: Holmes submitted this idea on October 22nd, 1968, shortly after completing work on The Krotons. It was drawn from a proposed series Holmes had developed in 1967 called Schizo. Script editor Terrance Dicks was wary, feeling that OSCOC bore similarities to the eponymous facility of The Wheel In Space. He was also concerned that Holmes' notion of the Mark II Humans being distinguished by a physical feature like an extra-long thumb was reminiscent of the American TV series The Invaders. “The Aliens In The Blood” was rejected soon thereafter. Years later, however, Holmes was commissioned to write an amended version of the serial -- now set in present-day Chile and with the Doctor and his companions replaced by Dr John Cornelius and Prof Curtis Lark -- for BBC Radio 4. Co-written with René Basilico, it was transmitted in six weekly episodes as Aliens In The Mind from January 2nd, 1977.
Characters: The Second Doctor, Jamie, Zoe
Episodes: Unknown
Planned For: Season Six
Stage Reached: Storyline
Synopsis: In the 22nd century, the Outer Space Commission Of Control (OSCOC) regulates the flow of traffic in the spacelanes. OSCOC is located on an island in the Indian Ocean, and its staff -- led by Dean Thawne -- are in frequent conflict with the primitive natives. The TARDIS materialises on the island in the midst of a rash of sabotage which has resulted in the loss of many Earth spaceships. Although the natives are suspected, it transpires that the culprits are actually mutant “Mark II” humans, who have infiltrated OSCOC. These mutants have gained the power of ESP but are cold and emotionless, and now intend world conquest. The Doctor defeats the mutants by constructing a device which broadcasts along their psychic wavelength and burns out their superhuman abilities.

The Big Store The Second Doctor
Writers: David Ellis and Malcolm Hulke Notes: Ellis and Hulke were writing “The Big Store” by the fall of 1966, the department store setting having been suggested by story editor Gerry Davis. Their storyline was submitted on November 15th. Davis and producer Innes Lloyd liked the ideas, but felt that they would work more effectively in an airport setting; Lloyd also desired a six-part serial. “The Big Store” was therefore abandoned, and Ellis and Hulke reworked the concept into The Faceless Ones.
Characters: The Second Doctor, Polly, Ben
Episodes: 4
Planned For: Season Four
Stage Reached: Storyline
Synopsis: The TARDIS lands in a department store in 1973 London. The store has been taken over by two species of aliens -- a master race and a faceless slave race. The store employees have been abducted to the aliens' spacecraft, while some of the faceless aliens have been transformed into their duplicates, and the unprocessed slaves pose as mannequins. The master aliens intend to colonise the Earth, subjugating humanity by releasing a new strain of bubonic plague. The Doctor convinces the aliens to leave the Earth in peace.

The Dreamspinner The Second Doctor
Writer: Paul Wheeler Notes: Wheeler was commissioned to write a four-part story breakdown on February 23rd, 1968. The story had been expanded to six episodes by the time the first installment was requested on March 13th. “The Dreamspinner” was intended to bear the production code Serial WW, making it the second story into production during the sixth recording block (and therefore the fourth story of Season Six). However, Wheeler's script for Episode One was not to the satisfaction of the production office, and it was abandoned on April 9th. The Invasion was extended to eight episodes as a result.
Characters: The Second Doctor (with Jamie and Zoe?)
Episodes: 6 (initially 4)
Planned For: Fourth story of Season Six
Stage Reached: Script for episode one
Synopsis: Involved a person with the power to make others believe that their dreams are real.

The Eye In Space The Second Doctor
Writer: Victor Pemberton Notes: Doctor Who producer Peter Bryant asked Pemberton to develop a new idea shortly after completing Fury From The Deep in late 1967. When Bryant started to step back from Doctor Who in early 1969, Pemberton decided not to pursue the story, and it was not formally commissioned.
Characters: The Second Doctor (with Jamie and Zoe?)
Episodes: Unknown
Planned For: Season Six
Stage Reached: Storyline
Synopsis: Concerned an omniscient octopoid eye in space which drew things toward it.

The Gift The Second Doctor The Third Doctor
Writers: Bob Baker and Dave Martin Notes: Baker and Martin developed a seven-part storyline for the Second Doctor after meeting with Doctor Who script editor Terrance Dicks, his assistant Trevor Ray, and producers Derrick Sherwin and Peter Bryant. Extremely ambitious, it featured the destruction of Battersea Power Station, space battles, and even a giant carrot crashing into Hyde Park. “The Gift” was scaled back to six installments by the time the script for episode one was commissioned on December 1st, 1969, by which point Jon Pertwee had been cast as the new Doctor. However, the script was not submitted to the production office until April 6th, 1970 -- more than three months past the original delivery date of January 2nd -- and failed to meet the approval of new producer Barry Letts. Letts felt that “The Gift” was too much of a jumble of ideas, and he was unhappy with the skull spaceship image. The script also seemed to overestimate what could be accomplished on the limited Doctor Who budget. It was immediately rejected, but Dicks worked with Baker and Martin to redevelop it as The Claws Of Axos.
Characters: The Second Doctor (original submission); the Third Doctor (revised)
Episodes: 7 (original submission); 6 (revised)
Planned For: Seasons Seven and Eight
Stage Reached: Script for episode one
Synopsis: A skull-shaped spaceship lands in Hyde Park. The aliens aboard offer a gift for humanity, but actually plan its destruction.

The Harvesters The Second Doctor The Third Doctor
aka The Vampire Planet
Writer: William Emms Notes: A couple of years after submitting this story under the title of “The Harvesters” for the Second Doctor, Emms redrafted it in 1969 as “The Vampire Planet” to adhere to the new UNIT format. “The Vampire Planet” may have briefly been considered for the final slot of Season Seven -- ultimately taken by Inferno -- but was soon dropped.
Characters: The Second Doctor (original submission); The Third Doctor, UNIT (resubmission)
Episodes: Unknown
Planned For: Troughton era (original submission); final story of Season Seven (resubmission)
Stage Reached: Storyline
Synopsis: The Masters pilot a purple planet into the solar system and despatch their Roboes to invade Earth. The Doctor defeats the Masters by frightening them with film of nuclear explosions.

The Hounds Of Time The First Doctor The Second Doctor
Writer: Brian Hayles Notes: This storyline appears to have been submitted around the time that Hayles completed The Smugglers in mid-1966. It was discovered by Mark Hayles amongst his late father's files.
Characters: The First or Second Doctor, Ben, Polly
Episodes: 4
Planned For: Season Four
Stage Reached: Storyline
Synopsis: A scientist named Melloris has despatched robotic hunters to capture humans from throughout Earth's history and bring them to his laboratory on the planet Terrin. Amongst those kidnapped are Ben and Polly, but the Doctor pursues them to Terrin and confronts Melloris. He discovers that Terrin's warlord, Vartan, is studying mankind in order to determine the optimal point in history to invade and make Earth a vassal of Terrin. The controlling computer now identifies 1970 as the crucial year. Having second thoughts, Melloris tries to stop Vartan but is killed. However, Ben and Polly escape from the trap, and the Doctor sabotages the computer with a logical paradox, depriving Vartan of the power he needs to launch the invasion.

The Impersonators The Second Doctor
Writers: Malcolm Hulke Notes: Hulke was commissioned to write a storyline for “The Impersonators” on July 5th, 1968. It was planned that this adventure would form Serial ZZ, possibly replacing “The Laird Of McCrimmon”, with a four-part Serial AAA by Derrick Sherwin then serving as the final story for the Second Doctor. However, when problems hit both projects, it was decided to instead conclude Season Six with a ten-part Serial ZZ, which became The War Games, co-written by Hulke. “The Impersonators” was formally abandoned on December 30th.
Characters: The Second Doctor, Jamie, Zoe
Episodes: 6
Planned For: Penultimate story of Season Six
Stage Reached: Storyline
Synopsis: Unknown

The Imps The Second Doctor
Writer: William Emms Notes: A year after the transmission of his Galaxy 4, Emms was commissioned to write “The Imps” on October 17th, 1966. The story was rushed into production when it was decided that The Underwater Menace could not be suitably realised on Doctor Who's budget. Emms completed draft scripts and some rewrites before falling ill in November. Around this time, producer Innes Lloyd and story editor Gerry Davis decided to add the character of Jamie as a new companion in The Highlanders, the story preceding “The Imps”, meaning that he would have to be incorporated into Emms' scripts. With the writer too sick to do the necessary work, The Underwater Menace was resurrected to take its spot in the schedule. It was intended that “The Imps” would now follow The Underwater Menace into production but, by mid-December, the slot had been given to The Moonbase. “The Imps” was formally rejected on January 4th, 1967, possibly because it would have needed substantial reworking to accommodate the planned exit of Ben and Polly, and the introduction of a new female companion. Emms later used elements of the story for his Sixth Doctor choose-your-own-adventure book, Mission To Venus, published in 1986.
Characters: The Second Doctor, Polly, Ben (and later Jamie)
Episodes: 4
Planned For: The fifth or sixth serial of Season Four
Stage Reached: Complete scripts
Synopsis: An interplanetary passenger liner lands at a remote spaceport on Earth, bearing with it imp-like creatures who can become intangible, and alien spores. They cause an aggressive form of vegetation to spring up around the spaceport and attack the humans within.

The Laird Of McCrimmon The Second Doctor
Writers: Mervyn Haisman and Henry Lincoln Notes: By late April 1968, it was clear that Frazer Hines would be leaving Doctor Who sometime during Season Six. One candidate for his departure story was Haisman and Lincoln's third Yeti serial, which they were working on around the start of June. Over the summer, however, the writers became embroiled in a dispute over copyright with the BBC regarding the Quarks, robot monsters which had appeared in their previous Doctor Who commission, The Dominators. The ensuing acrimony resulted in the abandonment of “The Laird Of McCrimmon” during August.
Characters: The Second Doctor, Jamie, Victoria
Episodes: Probably 6
Planned For: Probably the penultimate serial of Season Six
Stage Reached: Storyline
Synopsis: A possessed Jamie pilots the TARDIS to 1746 Scotland and his ancestral home, Castle McCrimmon. There, he finds the current Laird, Sir James, is on his deathbed. Yeti appear and surround the castle while the local villagers fall under the influence of the Great Intelligence; the only person who seems to be immune is a girl named Fiona, with whom Jamie falls in love. The Great Intelligence wants to inhabit Jamie's body and become the Laird once Sir James dies. However, the Intelligence is defeated by the Doctor, and Jamie decides to stay behind and become Laird himself.

The Lords Of The Red Planet The Second Doctor
Writer: Brian Hayles Notes: Producer Peter Bryant requested a second Ice Warrior adventure from their creator, Brian Hayles, both to capitalise on the popularity of the monsters following their debut in The Ice Warriors, and to get additional use out of the expensive costumes. “The Lords Of The Red Planet” was commissioned on February 15th, 1968. It was Hayles' intent that the Ice Warriors seen in their debut serial would be a group of genetically-engineered Martians despatched by Zaadur as an expeditionary force. Since the new companion, ultimately called Zoe, was still being developed, Hayles referred to the character as “Dolly” in his early notes. A revised storyline was submitted on March 27th which, amongst other changes, removed the distinction between the Gandorian and Saurian races. However, no further development seems to have taken place and, on July 15th, a new Ice Warrior storyline -- The Seeds Of Death -- was commissioned from Hayles. In November 2013, Big Finish Productions released an audio adaptation of “Lords Of The Red Planet” by John Dorney.
Characters: The Second Doctor, Jamie, Zoe
Episodes: 6
Planned For: Season Six
Stage Reached: Storyline
Synopsis: The Doctor, Jamie and Zoe land in the city of Gandor on Mars, where they discover that the planet is home to two sentient races: the more evolved Gandorians and their Saurian slaves. However, the Gandorians have become unable to reproduce, and their lives are being artificially extended. A scientist named Quendril is performing genetic experiments, and the time travellers recognise his enhanced Saurians as Ice Warriors. One of the Gandorian rulers, Zaadur, plans to use the Ice Warriors as an invasion force. However, the TARDIS crew is aided by an enhanced Saurian named Vargason, who sacrifices himself to stop Zaadur.

The Mutant The Second Doctor
Writer: Barry Letts Notes: Letts submitted this idea around November 1966, when it was rejected by story editor Gerry Davis. Later, when Letts was the producer of Doctor Who, he suggested that writers Bob Baker and Dave Martin incorporate elements of this concept into a story of their own, which became The Mutants.

Synopsis: A race of people created powerful robots but were subsequently wiped out. The robots have now become so advanced that they are, in turn, able to create a new race of people. They fear that these new humans will dominate them, and see the arrival of the Doctor on their planet as confirmation of their fears.

Operation Werewolf The Second Doctor
Writers: Douglas Camfield and Robert Kitts Notes: Camfield, who had most recently directed The Daleks' Master Plan, worked on the storyline with Kitts during 1965. It was finally submitted to the Doctor Who production office on September 18th, 1967, inviting response from producer Innes Lloyd on October 3rd. Taking on board Lloyd's suggestions, Camfield and Kitts composed a script for the first episode, but “Operation: Werewolf” was dropped thereafter. Although the practise had been abandoned by that point in time, the authors nonetheless allocated an individual title to each installment; these were 1. The Secret Army, 2. Chateau Of Death, 3. Lair Of The Werewolf, 4. Friend Or Foe, 5. Village Of The Swastika and 6. Crossfire.
Characters: The Second Doctor, Jamie, Victoria
Episodes: 6
Planned For: Season Five
Stage Reached: Script for episode one
Synopsis: The TARDIS lands in Normandy, France on June 1st, 1944 -- five days before D-Day. The Doctor discovers that the Nazis are developing a way to teleport troops across the English Channel: the so-called “Operation Werewolf”. To stop the Nazis, the Doctor allies himself with the Resistance -- including Fergus McCrimmon, a descendant of Jamie's -- but must first uncover the traitors within.

The Prison In Space The Second Doctor
aka The Amazons, The Female Of The Species, The Lady Killers, The Masters Of Zenos, More Deadly Than The Male, The Revolutionaries, The Strange Suffragettes (whew!)
Writer: Dick Sharples Notes: Concerned that Doctor Who was becoming too serious, producer Peter Bryant asked humour writer Dick Sharples to contribute to the series. A story breakdown for “The Amazons” -- intended to be the first outright Doctor Who comedy since 1965's The Romans -- was commissioned on April 24th, 1968. It was intended to be made as Serial WW, replacing an unknown story which had, in turn, replaced “The Dreamspinner”. After suggesting a host of alternative titles, Sharples' adventure became “The Prison In Space” in May; the scripts were commissioned on June 4th. Sharples was told that Frazer Hines was leaving Doctor Who and so “The Prison In Space” should now write out Jamie and introduce a new companion, Nik, who had been created by producer Peter Bryant and story editor Derrick Sherwin. In September, Hines changed his mind about how early he would be leaving Doctor Who, and Sharples agreed to rewrite the scripts accordingly. However, both the production team and the assigned director, David Maloney, were now becoming unhappy with “The Prison In Space”, particularly with scenes such as one in which Jamie dressed up in drag to masquerade as a Dolly Guard. In late September, Sharples informed Bryant that he would not perform any further rewrites on the serial, as he felt that he had already done the work requested of him, and the production office was now changing their expectations. On October 7th, The Krotons was chosen to replace “The Prison In Space”, despite the fact that Barrie Gosney had already been cast in the latter (possibly as Albert). Following a series of discussions with Sharples, Bryant finally elected to abandon “The Prison In Space” on October 15th. In December 2010, Big Finish Productions released an audio adaptation of “The Prison In Space” by Simon Guerrier.
Characters: The Second Doctor, Jamie, Zoe
Episodes: 4
Planned For: Fourth story of Season Six
Stage Reached: Complete script
Synopsis: The TARDIS materialises on a planet where women have ruled for the past five centuries; they have disenfranchised men, banned war, and developed a way to extend their lifespans so that procreation is no longer imperative. The Doctor and Jamie are arrested and sentenced by President Babs to a prison satellite controlled by the Dolly Guards. They quickly recruit their cellmates -- Albert, Garth and Mervyn -- into helping them foment a resistance movement. Meanwhile, Babs brainwashes Zoe and sends her to the satellite as an ostensible ambassador. Once there, though, Zoe betrays the Doctor and Jamie, and they and their collaborators are put on a rocket destined for a remote planet. However, prior to her conditioning, Zoe told other women about the way males and females coexist on Earth, and this incites a revolution against Babs. The newly enlightened women rescue the Doctor; Jamie frees Zoe from her brainwashing by spanking her.

Writer: Brian Hayles Notes: “The Queen Of Time” was discovered by Mark Hayles amongst his late father's files.
Characters: The Second Doctor, Jamie, Victoria
Episodes: 4
Planned For: Season Five
Stage Reached: Storyline
Synopsis: The TARDIS is captured by Hecuba, the Queen of Time, brethren of the Celestial Toymaker, who has romantic designs on the Doctor. She challenges him to a series of contests against figures from history (including Copernicus and Nostradramus) while her servants, Snap and Drag, bedevil Jamie and Victoria with a variety of time-themed perils (such as being trapped inside a giant hourglass). The companions survive the last of these challenges and save the Doctor from being trapped for eternity in a time loop. Hecuba threatens to destroy the TARDIS in her Grand Chronometer -- the source of her power -- but has not reckoned with the time machine's invulnerability. The Grand Chronometer grinds to a halt, giving the Doctor the chance to trap Hecuba in her own time loop even as he and his friends make their escape.

The Return Of The Neanderthal The Second Doctor
Writer: Roger Dixon Notes: Dixon submitted this storyline on January 16th, 1967; the use of Polly without Ben was reflective of the fact that the pair would shortly be replaced by a single, as-yet-unknown female companion.
Characters: The Second Doctor, Jamie, Polly
Episodes: Unknown
Planned For: Season Five
Stage Reached: Storyline
Synopsis: The TARDIS lands on the planet Terunda, where the Doctor learns that the highly-advanced Terundans have nurtured a Neanderthal culture. Some of the Neanderthals now wish to return to Earth, and the Terundans ask for the Doctor's help to facilitate this. The Doctor is reluctant because the Neanderthals are telepathic and he is suspicious of their motives, but the Terundans assure him that the Neanderthals are conditioned such that they will all die should any one of them commit an act of violence. However, once arriving on an island on 2016 Earth, the Neanderthals reveal that they intend to use their telepathy to force the humans to do their dirty work for them. They take over the island, and only the Doctor and his companions -- shielded from the Neanderthal telepathy thanks to Terundan technology -- are safe. They are cornered on a cliff edge by the Neanderthals, but one of the Neanderthals has been befriended by Jamie. She is injured trying to save them and, in a fit of rage, shoots her leader. This triggers the Terundan conditioning, and all the Neanderthals die.

The Rosemariners The Second Doctor
aka The Rosicrutians
Writer: Donald Tosh Notes: Tosh, Doctor Who's former story editor, submitted the storyline for “The Rosicrutians” around March 1968. The idea came from research he was doing while planning his own rose garden, while the title was a variant of Rosicrucian, a secret religious society which flourished in the seventeenth century. Many of Tosh's character names were derived from rose-related terminology, such as Rugosa (from rosa rugosa, an oriental type of rose). After turning in his storyline, Tosh continued to work on a draft script of Episode One -- with the title changing slightly to “The Rosemariners” -- but he then became busy on other work and did not maintain contact with the Doctor Who production team. By the time he was able to make significant progress on the story, it was already known that Patrick Troughton would be leaving Doctor Who and that the programme would be overhauled for Season Seven. Since it would not fit the new Earthbound format, “The Rosemariners” was abandoned without ever being formally commissioned. Tosh would later adapt his script for audio, which was released in September 2012 by Big Finish Productions.
Characters: The Second Doctor, Jamie, Victoria
Episodes: 4
Planned For: Season Six
Stage Reached: Script for episode one
Synopsis: The TARDIS materialises on an Earth space station, which has been virtually abandoned as a result of subterfuge by Rugosa, leader of the Rosemariners, whose spaceship, the Rosemarinus, is nearby. The Rosemariners are using a venom secreted by their special roses to brainwash people. It transpires that the Rosemarinus is actually a prison ship; Rugosa was an inmate who managed to overthrow the wardens. He now plans an invasion of Earth, but the Doctor manages to inject Rugosa with the venom, thereby incapacitating him and returning control of the Rosemarinus to the wardens.

Synopsis: The TARDIS lands on far-future Earth, where a great conflict has reduced the world's populace to only a few hundred, living in isolated communities ignorant of each others' existence. One such community is made up of quarrelling Elders and young people who are dependent upon robots for their subsistence; however, these robots have recently stopped functioning. The Doctor realises that the robots are powered by hydroelectricity, and uses a fire and some silver iodine powder to bring about a rainstorm. This solves the problem, but also attracts the attention of another community, whose more warlike denizens attack. The Doctor is finally forced to modify some robots for use as weapons. Pacified, the attackers soon agree to work together with the Elders and their younger counterparts. However, before the Doctor can deactivate all the modified robots, two of them manage to construct a primitive TARDIS and escape.

However, the Doctor's suspicions are aroused when Jamie watches a tramp who had broken into the Manor vanish from Stonehenge and later reappear as yet another aide named Ganis. With the help of European Security agent Bennett, the Doctor discovers that Storp and his friends are aliens who have turned Stonehenge into a transporter. They plan to use the technology to covertly replace four soldiers who have control of their countries' respective nuclear arsenals, laying waste to the Earth and paving the way for Storp's planet to invade. With Bennett's help, the Doctor banishes Storp and his cronies back to their own world, and then locks the arrival point at Stonehenge inside a forcefield to prevent their return.

(untitled) The Second Doctor
Writer: Derrick Sherwin Notes: Sherwin -- at the time making the transition from being script editor to producer of Doctor Who -- was apparently planning to write this story, designated Serial AAA, from about June 1968. It appears that problems hit both this adventure and the preceding Serial ZZ, “The Impersonators”, and so, in November, the decision was made to conclude the Second Doctor's era with a single ten-part Serial ZZ, which became The War Games. Sherwin's story, which was never formally commissioned, was dropped at this point.
