TV Series - Doctor Who - Third Season

This is one of four seasons with few episodes completed and remaining. Much of the episodes have been purged by BBC and no copies exist.

Only the Number 23 (The Ark) and 27 (the War Machines) are completed. Everything else is either completly missing or partially missing. Of the 44 episodes of the third season only 16 remain. 

There was also great changes in the cast as all companions either leave or die. Not one of them survive the last series.

The Doctor gets his tooth pulled by Doc Holliday in Tombstone while Dodo and Steven literally sing for their lives.
