    F ~ Faceless Ones, The - 1967 story starring Patrick Troughton as "The Doctor", with Anneke Wills and Michael Craze in their final appearances as "Polly Wright" and "Ben Jackson" respectively, and Frazer Hines as "Jamie McCrimmon".

    Synopsis
    ---------
    The TARDIS makes a hazardous return to 1960s Earth, materialising on a runway at Gatwick Airport. The Doctor and his friends realise that all is not well when Polly witnesses a murder, and then both she and Ben vanish. The authorities refuse to take the matter seriously - but when Polly reappears, why does she claim not to recognise her friends?

    Aided by the plucky Samantha Briggs, and helped and hindered by Inspector Crossland of Scotland Yard and the airport Commandant, the Doctor and Jamie piece together a number of clues. A sequence of mysterious events seems to centre around Chameleon Tours, whose package holidays are designed to entice young people to foreign shores. Just how far-flung are the horizons they offer, and why are none of their passengers coming back? Who are the faceless ones, and what hideously deformed creatures are involved in the operations being conducted at the airport medical centre?

    The Doctor believes thereís a connection between Chameleon Tours and the odd behaviour of key airport personnel - but in seeking to prove his theory, and rescue Ben and Polly, he becomes embroiled in a plot to steal the identities of thousands of young people.

    G ~ 'Genesis of the Daleks' - The Time Lords intercept the transmat beam taking the Doctor, Sarah and Harry back to Nerva and deposit them instead on the planet Skaro at an early point in its history. There a Time Lord gives the Doctor both a mission to prevent or alter the Daleks' development so that they become less of a threat to the universe and a time ring that will enable him and his companions to return to the TARDIS once this is done.

    Skaro is currently in the grip of a long war of attrition between its two humanoid powers, the Kaleds and the Thals. The Kaleds' chief scientist, Davros, has been experimenting to discover the final form into which his race will mutate - the weapons used in the war have already produced genetically scarred 'mutos', who have been consigned to the wastelands - and has devised a protective casing in which they can continue to survive. This is instantly recognised by the Doctor and Sarah as a Dalek.

    Escaping from the bunker where Davros and his Elite, led by the sadistic Nyder, are based, the Doctor and Harry persuade the Kaled leaders to put the Dalek experiments on hold. Davros retaliates by conspiring with the Thals to destroy the Kaled city with a rocket. He then activates the Daleks and orders them to wipe out the Thals.

    Some members of the Elite revolt, protesting at the genetic alterations that Davros has made to the Daleks, and they too are exterminated. The Daleks then seize control, killing the remainder of the Elite and ultimately Davros himself. Thal survivors detonate explosives at the entrance to the bunker, sealing the Daleks inside.

    Having earlier passed up an opportunity to destroy the Dalek mutants at birth, the Doctor estimates that his intervention will have delayed their development by about a thousand years.

    H ~ Happiness Patrol, The - 1988 story starring Sylvester McCoy as "The Doctor" and Sophie Aldred as "Ace".

    Synopsis
    ---------
    The Doctor has heard stories of strange and sinister goings-on on Earth colony Terra Alpha. Citizens have disappeared without trace, and strange creatures lurk in the pipes and sewers under the capital city. Believing it is high time someone got to the bottom of the mystery, the Doctor declares to his young companion Ace that tonight will be the night...

    He discovers that Terra Alpha is ruled by the tyrannical Helen A, a dictator who requires her subjects to be happy... or die. Her roving death squads - the Happiness Patrol - are empowered to kill on sight anyone displaying signs of sadness, gloom or melancholy.

    However, it is not just the sadistic Happiness Patrol that the Doctor and Ace must contend with. Before they can discover the dark secret of Helen A's regime, they must face the fearsome bloodlust of her savage pet, Fifi, and the lethal surprises cooked up by her chief executioner - and confectioner supreme - the Kandy Man.

    I ~ Ice Warrior - The race originated on Mars, and first appeared in the 1967 serial 'The Ice Warriors' where they encountered the Second Doctor and his companions Jamie and Victoria. The name Ice Warrior is not the name of their species, but was applied to them by an Earth scientific team in the Martians' first on-screen appearance.

    The Ice Warriors are reptilian humanoids, their scaly skin and features usually hidden under heavy armour. They have large, claw-like hands on which are mounted sonic weaponry, and their voices are a highly sibilant whisper due to the different composition of Earth's atmosphere. Two types of Ice Warrior are seen in the series, the rank and file Warriors, and an officer class, which fan lore has christened Ice Lords (with at least one being referred to as a "Lord" on screen). The main difference between the two is the design of their armour, with the Ice Lords wearing a lighter, more flexible version than those of the Warriors.

    J ~ Jubilee Pizza - Jubilee Pizza was an international convenience food chain operating on Earth in the early 21st century. Whether or not they produced anything other than pizzas remains a mystery.

    The Cardiff branch of Jubilee Pizza enjoyed the regular customer of Torchwood 3, who had an account in that name with the company courtesy of Owen Harper.

    The effect on consumer relations between Jubilee Pizza and Torchwood remains unknown after an incident involving one of the delivery chain's employees. A delivery girl had her brain forcibly extracted by the partially-converted Cyberman Lisa Hallett, after which Hallett intended to implant her own brain. The girl was then shot multiple times by the Torchwood staff.

    A second Cardiff branch existed at Queens Arcade shopping centre.

    The Utah branch of Jubilee Pizza delivered to the GeoComTex Vault on at least one occasion, as pizza boxes were seen in the outer area of the Dalek Cage. The pizzas were almost certainly for the guards.

    K ~ Krillitane - The Krillitanes are an alien race that first appeared in the 2006 episode 'School Reunion'. They had infiltrated the Deffry Vale comprehensive school on present day Earth, increasing the intelligence of the pupils with Krillitane oil. Using the children as part of a giant computer programme, they hoped to crack the secrets of the Skasis Paradigm, the Universal Theory that would give them control over the basic forces of the universe and turn them into gods. Their scheme was foiled by the Tenth Doctor and his companions, though not before they attempted to ask the Doctor to join them in remaking the universe. This conversation showed that the Krillitanes were aware of the Time War, of the Time Lords and of their fate.

    The Krillitanes are a composite race who pick and choose physical traits they find useful from the species they conquer, incorporating them into their own bodies. When the Doctor last encountered them they looked like humans with very long necks, but by the time of 'School Reunion', they possessed a bat-like form which they obtained from the conquest of Bessan ten generations prior. However, they were able to maintain a morphic illusion of human form, which could be discarded if needed.

    M ~ 'Meglos' - Was first broadcast in four weekly parts from September 27 to October 18, 1980.

    The Doctor is invited to visit the planet Tigella by its leader, Zastor, who has become concerned about disputes between his people's two opposing factions, the religious Deons and the scientist Savants.

    The TARDIS is intercepted by the megalomaniacal xerophyte Meglos, last survivor of the planet Zolfa-Thura, and trapped in a chronic hysteresis - a time loop - but the Doctor and Romana manage to free it.

    Meglos, using the body of a kidnapped Earthling, transforms himself into a duplicate of the Doctor and steals the Tigellans' power source - a mysterious dodecahedron. He plans to use this to power an apocalyptic device with which he intends to destroy Tigella.

    The Doctor, although hindered by the activities of a group of Gaztak mercenaries hired by Meglos, ultimately brings about the xerophyte's destruction by tampering with the dodecahedron's controlling computers.

    N ~ Nucleus of the Swarm - The Nucleus of the Swarm was a type of space-borne organism which had hung dormant in a cloud-like area of space near Saturn for millennia, until in 5000 it was picked up by the crew of a Titan Shuttle. It infected the relief crew for the Titan Base, and trough them eventually most of the Bi-Al Foundation

    The Swarm worked like a disease, spreading by electrical pulses, which needed to make contact with a victim's eyes. This would turn victims into agents of the Swarm, answering to a nucleus, a microscopic and virus-like sentient organism that controlled the swarm. Visually, an infected lifeform could be recognised by their growing of grey filaments around their eyes and hands.

    There was no physical matter for the virus, which existed in a state in the mind/brain interface (though the nucleus had a crustacean-like form). This meaneant the swarm could affect non-living sentients such as robots and would have a diminished effect on individuals that relied on instinct rather than reason.

    Certain individuals (such as Leela) had certain antibodies that could defeat the virus. Addiitionally, the virus could be slowed simply by not thinking.

    O ~ Ood - The Ood are a humanoid species with coleoid tentacles on the lower portions of their faces. In the distant future (circa 42nd century), the Ood are a slave race to humanity, performing menial tasks, and it is claimed that every human has an Ood servant. According to human characters in their first appearance, the Ood offer themselves for servitude willingly, having no goals of their own except to be given orders and to serve. It is also claimed that they cannot look after themselves, and if they do not receive orders, they pine away and die. However, mention is made of a group called the "Friends of the Ood" who are apparently lobbying for Ood freedom. Ood also have purple blood.

    (Spoiler'd for size).
    Spoiler:
    The Ood require a translator device, a small sphere connected to their "mouths" by a tube, to facilitate speech between them and humans. The tube was originally connecting their external brains to their body, but to use the creatures, far future humans would amputate the brain and instead fix the translator sphere where the brain used to be. There appears to be no gender differentiation among the Ood, and they say they require no names or titles as they are "one", but they do have designations such as "Ood 1 Alpha 1". The Ood are empaths, sharing among themselves a low-level telepathic communication field, rated at "Basic 5" (with "Basic 30" being the equivalent of screaming and "Basic 100" meaning brain death). When reaching out with their telepathic fields, it can be heard as singing. According to the Official Doctor Who Annual 2007 the Ood live on a planet in the Horsehead Nebula where they were governed by a Hive Mind but it was destroyed by Human colonists. According to the monster book Creatures and Demons, published in 2007, it says they come from the "Ood Sphere", close to the "Sense Sphere" planet, home to the Sensorites, who share a similarity with the Ood. With no hive mind the Ood offered themselves to the Human colonists and became a slave race.

    When encountered by the Tenth Doctor and Rose Tyler in 'The Impossible Planet', a large number of Ood accompanied a human-led expeditionary force on the planet Krop Tor, orbiting a black hole. The empathic nature of the Ood seemed to make them susceptible to psychic possession by the Beast, who formed the Ood on the base into his "Legion". While possessed, the Ood 'zapped' and killed two human security guards by throwing their translation spheres at them.

    The Ood were defeated when Danny Bartok, the expedition member in charge of them, broadcasted a telepathic flare which reduced their field to "Basic Zero", creating a "brainstorm" which caused them to collapse. However, the telepathic field began to reassert itself after a time. When Krop Tor was sucked into the black hole, the Doctor was unable to save any of the Ood on the base, who had been freed of the Beast's control, and all of them perished. It is unknown if the Ood on Earth, which were seen in 'The Impossible Planet's TARDISODE, and on their home planet of the Ood Sphere, were influenced by the Beast's control, or not.

    On the return of the Ood in the 2008 story 'Planet of the Ood', it was revealed that they are not, in fact, born to serve, but are an enslaved race, with the translation spheres actually replacing their hind brain which had contained their individual personalities. The Doctor aids and successfully frees the race by releasing the main Ood brain, which links all Ood with a telepathic link (which may be why they were before only able to communicate at basic 5). Before this time it had been sequestered away from the Ood for 200 years by Ood Operations, the corporation that processed the Ood slaves. Over that time the brain adapted (assisted by the gradual lowering of its suppression field by a Friends Of The Ood activist who had infiltrated Ood Operations), allowing it to influence the Ood's actions. It made some Ood feral and vengeful (causing their eyes to glow as possession by the Beast did), while directing another to genetically re-engineer the head of the slave trading company into an Ood. Once the Hive brain was freed, the Oods' song could be heard throughout the Human Empire, by Ood and Human alike. After this, all Ood were freed and sent back to the planet of the Ood.

    R ~ Rutan Host - The Rutan Host, or Rutans have been at war with the Sontaran Empire for more than 50,000 years, this war dominates both cultures to the exclusion of all else. The Rutans only appeared in the serial 'Horror of Fang Rock', in which a single Rutan is encountered, though they are mentioned in some serials featuring Sontarans ('The Time Warrior', 'The Sontaran Experiment', 'The Two Doctors' and 'The Poison Sky').

    T ~ 'The Keeper of Traken' - The Doctor and Adric learn from the wizened Keeper of Traken that a great evil has come to his planet in the form of a Melkur - A calcified statue. The Keeper is nearing the end of his reign and seeks the Doctor's help in preventing the evil from taking control of the bioelectronic Source that is the keystone of the Traken Union's civilization.

    The Melkur, via various deceptions, becomes the next Keeper. It is then, however, revealed to be the Master's TARDIS. Its owner, still blackened and emaciated, hopes to use the Source's power to regenerate himself. The Doctor manages to expel him and install a new Keeper in his place, but in a last minute ploy the Master traps one of the Traken Consuls, Tremas, and merges with his body before fleeing the planet.

    U ~ UNIT - UNified Intelligence Taskforce (formerly known as United Nations Intelligence Taskforce) was formed in 1967 following the incidents in Shoreditch in 1963 (Remembrance of the Daleks) and the London Underground in 1965 (The Web of Fear). The main base is in New York and the UK branch was originally under the command of Brigadier Alistair Lethbridge-Stewart from 1967 until his retirement in 1976. In 1969, UNIT had its baptism of fire when the Cybermen attempted to attack and invade Earth (The Invasion). UNIT is still going strong 40-years later and has defended Earth from alien threats such as Autons (Spearhead from Space, Terror of the Autons), Silurians (The Silurians), Axons (The Claws of Axos), Daleks (Day of the Daleks, The Stolen Earth), Zygons (Terror of the Zygons), & Sontarans (The Sontaran Stratagem).

    UNIT first appeared in the 1968 story The Invasion.

    V ~ Voga - Voga, also known as the Planet of Gold was a planet with an extremely high gold content. It contained more gold than in the rest of the known galaxy and with rocks being 50% gold, sometimes even higher. Because of this, golden objects were not considered impressive on the planet.

    Voga was originally a full sized planet, inhabited by the Vogans. During the Cyber-Wars, the Vogans started supplying the gold dust which would be used in the manufacturing of glitterguns. The Cybermen tried to stop this by destroying the planet, but one emergency bunker survived, which started drifting in space. Centuries later, it was captured in Jupiter's orbit. The Cybermen later discovered the planet again and attempted to destroy the remaining gold ('Revenge of the Cybermen').

    X ~ Xeraphin - The Xeraphin were an ancient species encountered by the Fifth Doctor in the story 'Time Flight'. Originating from the planet Xeriphas, they possessed immense psychokinetic and scientific powers. The Doctor believed the race to have been wiped out during the crossfire during the Vardon / Kosnax war. Instead, the entire race fled to Earth in an escaping spacecraft. The ship crashed near present day Heathrow some 140 million years ago. When the Xeraphin emerged they built a Citadel to mark their new home but the Xeraphin were so plagued with radiation that they abandoned their original humanoid bodies and transformed into a single bioplasmic gestalt intelligence within a sarcophagus at the heart of the Citadel.

    The arrival of the Master coincided with their emergence from the gestalt state when the radiation effects had subsided, and his influence caused the emergence of a split personality of good and evil, each side competing for their tremendous power while yearning to become a proper species once again. The Master, who was stranded on Earth at the time too, succeeded in capturing the Xeraphin as a new power source for his TARDIS. However, the Doctor's intervention meant his nemesis' TARDIS was sent to Xeriphas where events became out of his control.

    Before fleeing Xeriphas and the Xeraphin, the Master took with him Kamelion, a Xeraphin war weapon with advanced shape-changing abilities dependent on the will of its controller. Kamelion was freed from the Master and joined the Doctor's TARDIS crew in 'The King's Demons'.
