TV-series Doctor Who

Tom Baker, Lalla Ward, Julian Glover
Directed by Michael Hayes


Second episode (in four parts) of the 17th season of the British science fiction television series "Doctor Who". It features an alien called Scaroth, last of the Jagaroth, whose many incarnations pushed the human race forward through time, appearing as a god in ancient Egyptian times and ordering the pyramids built. The long running "Doctor Who" series contains various references to aliens who were revered as gods by the ancient Egyptians, for instance in the four 1975 episodes listed elsewhere in this list entitled "The Pyramids of Mars" which feature an alien called Sutekh (Seth).
