      One incomplete actually occurred due to a writer's strike during 4th Doctor's run. "Shada", though incomplete in filming and audio, is possible to be seen with a commentary and missing lines given by Tom Baker (I have it in my collection).

    Just going to slide in here a few lesser known facts because the ones provided in this video are so well known:
    - We already know one name for the Doctor. In the academy on Gallifrey, he was known as 'Theta Sigma', and was good friends with 'Koschei', aka 'The Master'.
    - When the Doctor was still young and known as Theta Sigma, he murdered someone with a rock. Koschei (the Master) ended up taking the blame starting the whole evil thing.
    - In an unproduced Third Doctor episode, it would have been revealed that the Master was actually the Doctor's brother. Unfortunately, Delgado's (the actor for the Master at that time) untimely passing led the story to be thrown in the bin and it to never be produced.
    - The Doctor has a canon brother. His name is Braxiatel, and he works for the CIA (the Celestial Intervention Agency). He's honestly a bit rude, but oh well.
    - The Eighth Doctor could be considered one of the most sexual Doctors, due to his constant kissing of companions, as well as having intercourse with characters canonically and in front of the audience. In his official books released in the late 90s and early 2000s, he slept with a man named Karl, and even an entire planet's ecosystem (the ecosystem was in the form of a woman).
    - It's alright to call the character 'Doctor Who'! Throughout the credits of a large chunk of Classic Who, his character was referred to as 'Dr. Who' in the credits, he's been called it in interviews, and there was even a line in a classic episode where a Dalek cried out: 'Doctor Who is required!' This mainly changed later in the show's run, and also mainly became a big thing when David Tennant took the stage and started the trend of 'you can't call him Doctor Who! It has to be the Doctor!'. Both names are correct, so feel free to call him whatever you like! :D
    - The longest Doctor Who performance ever was the Big Finish audio 'Zagreus', with the Eighth Doctor and his companion at the time, Charley Pollard. It ran for over _three and a half hours_ long. I won't spoil much of the story, but it did include the Fifth, Sixth, and Seventh Doctors in it too!

    It's too bad that this video didn't include deeper and lesser known facts or information, but hopefully this comment does some good. xD

    "For it's first four seasons, the show featured serials with no sci-fi elements beside The Doctor, his friends and the TARDIS."
    The second serial famously featured The Daleks. That's the SECOND story. I would say that was within the first four 'seasons'.

    • Ionut Maris

      +GreyHulk2 Plus, the Mechanoids, the Sensorites, the TARDIS team being shrunk to the size of ants, the TARDIS team jumping ahead a brief time in their future and seeing themselves as museum attractions, the "TV" set that let you see any event that had ever happened (like the Beatles playing), Monoids (and the futuristic ark they were on), the Celestial Toymaker, the Meddling Monk, and WOTAN. And those are just the ones I came up with without googling! No sci-fi elements in the first four seasons, my derrière! 🙄
