Most exciting. Hm.

Goodness, Ian will be here in a moment.

I must go and get ready.

Oh? Who's that?


I told you about him dozens of times.

- Her new boyfriend.

- Ooh!

Yes, I look forward to meeting him.

What's his name?


Goodness, that'll be him now!

Susie, be a dear

and answer the door, will you?

All right.

- Glad you dropped in.

- OK, so you caught me again.

Grandfather, this is Ian Chesterton.

- I am so very glad to meet you at last.

- Oh, hi.

- Oh, excuse me.

- How extremely kind of you.

Most thoughtful. Thank you.

They're for Barbara.

They're soft centres. Her favourite kind.

Oh, yes, of course, yes.

Well, she was here a moment ago.

Well, er, never mind. Why don't you

sit down while you're waiting for her?


Soft centres.

Well, never mind.

Plenty more where that came from.

- No! Wait!

- What is it?

A super-ionised

electro-kinetic pre-oscillator.

And you nearly sat on it.

Years of research work.

Part of my new invention.

Would you like to see it?

Come on. Come on, I'll show you.

He wouldn't understand.

Anyone can understand science if they

only put their minds to it. You can.

Well, that's different.

- Oh, well, let's give Harold a chance.

- Ian.

- I beg your pardon?

- Yes, my name's Ian, Dr Who.

Oh! How do you do?

Yes, yes, well, come along, then.

Come along.

Thank you, Susie.

Off we go.

After you, erm... Yes, right.

There. My latest invention.

- What, a police box?

- Of course not!

- This is TARDIS.


It stands for Time And Relative

Dimension In Space.

- Oh.

- Go inside. Go on.

- Yeah?

- Mm.

But it's so big in here and yet

it's so small from outside. How come?

In electro-kinetic theory, space expands

to accommodate the time necessary

- to encompass its dimensions.

- My little fellow scientist.

We've been working on TARDIS

for many years.

This is the final component.

You are privileged, young man,

to be the first visitor

to our time and space machine.

There. I can now set the controls

for anywhere in time and space

that we wish to go.

When I push that lever,

this room and everything in it

will dissolve into their respective

component electrical charges.

We're all made up of them.

These charges

will then be transferred in time and space

and reassembled in their proper order

and their proper place.

Er, well, I think I ought to be, er...

Oh, I thought you'd all be in here.

- Hello, darling.

- Hello.

Young man,

do you know what you have just done?

You have transferred us in time and space

and I haven't even set the controls.

Now I don't know where we are.

We could be anywhere in the universe

and at any time!

Rather exciting, isn't it?

Look, I don't know how you do the magic

with the inside of this room,

but as far as being somewhere else

in the universe...

Let's see where we are.

- Grandfather, where are we?

- Susan, dear, don't go too far yet.

There must have been a forest fire.

The heat must have been indescribable.

It's turned the earth into ashes.

Oh, well, the soil can't be that bad.

It still grows these shrubs and trees.

Look at that.


A petrified jungle!

How interesting.

This is most interesting.

Well, if it's all the same to you, sir,

perhaps we could be making

our way home now, huh?

What, and miss the chance of learning

something about an unknown planet?


I for one am going to investigate.

Come on, Grandfather.

- Come on, Grandfather!

- I'm coming, darling.

- Fascinating.

- Grandfather, look at this!

And what is it then?

By jingo!

That looks like a... looks like a tulip.
