Agreed on 'An Unearthly Child' being a once episode story... which is then followed by 'Doctor Who and a 100,000 BC'. smiley - erm

Shortest Dr Who story?

So, is 'An Unearthly Child' the shortest Dr Who story?

I'm going to disagree just to be pedantic and argue that An Uneathly Child is a 2-episode story consisting of itself and the pilot. Actually, I can't pull that off - it is just the same episode twice, which doesn't make it a 2 episode story.

So what is the shortest Dr Who story (other than charity specials)? Mission to the Unknown?

Strictly speaking Mission Into The Unknown is a spin-off as even though it was broadcast as Doctor Who it featured none of the regular cast (and was intended by Terry Nation as a demonstration of the possibility of doing a Dalek series that was separate from Doctor Who).
