Fact #1167

Every Doctor since 1966 has been played by William Hartnell under the effects of polyjuice potion, a ploy by him and Sydney Newman to prevent anyone finding out about their immortality. He and the BBC have planned that in 2023 this fact will be revealed, and that they will present to the world all of the missing episodes, except for the fourth episode of The Tenth Planet. Sydney Newman was every producer until JNT, and returned to the role in 2010 as Beth Willis, who was fired upon Moffat’s discovery of this.
