The Reign of Terror
Serial H

Written by Dennis Spooner
Directed by Henric Hirsch and John Gorrie *

* Henric Hirsch directed episodes 1, 2, 4, 5 and 6. John Gorrie directed episode 3.

'The Reign of Terror' was the final story of Doctor Who's first season. The story was originally wiped from the BBC's archives, but episodes 1-3 and 6 have been recovered from a foreign TV station and a private film collector.

The story is set in 1794 in and around Paris, during the French Revolution - the 'Reign of Terror' refers to Robespierre's infamous mass executions of the nobility and anyone else he felt was a threat to him.
