This Season 3 opener was broadcast after a brief summer hiatus between the months of September and October in 1965. This was one of the show's serials that intended to have more a science-fiction element, as opposed to the alternating historical serials of the time. The story involved the First Doctor (William Hartnell), Vicki and Steven landing on an unnamed planet within Galaxy 4, and being drawn into a conflict between the beautifully cloned Drahvins and the ugly-termed Rills with their helper robots, the Chumblies, as aptly named by Vicki. A story of skin-deep beauty unfolds, in which it turns out that the Drahvin leader Maaga, is in fact a member of a malevolent race of women, who have a rather Nazi-fascist social system. It is the Rills, as a race of telepaths and being a non near-human species, that are regarded as 'ugly' by Maaga, and thus require help from the Doctor and his companions in order to repair their ship before the planet starts to break apart.
The whole story has a moral message in that 'beauty is only skin-deep and you should never judge by appearance alone'.Read more ›
