Doctor Who Episode Listings

Note: These are the programme listings from issues of the New Zealand Listener. Shown here are the episode-specific descriptions. Spelling, punctuation and grammar have not been altered. Repetitive information such as cast listings, series descriptions, etc have been omitted. Correct episode titles and numbering are used as these are sometimes not present or accurate on the programme listings. For the regional broadcasts from 1964-1971 the programme listings are only those used for the first region to screen each episode, as the listings were usually identical for the other three regions.
