WTTW Compilations

Marty Robinson often claimed that he was the one who decided to compile Doctor Who stories into movie-length adventures. No one has yet disproven his claim. Below is a table of the Doctor Who stories as shown on Channel 11 and their peculiarities. Except for the Hartnell and Troughton credits which were almost certainly created by Lionheart, it is unclear how much editing was done by Channel 11 and how much was done by Time-Life and Lionheart.

"Airings" refers to the 657 broadcasts of compiled versions.
