Self-destruction: Doctor Who "Image of the Fendahl: Part Four" (19 November 1977)



The 4th Doctor (Tom Baker) gets the gun (at 5:07) in Doctor Who "Image of the Fendahl: Part Four", November 1977, written by Chris Boucher, directed by George Spenton-Foster. Another example of the casual and capricious presence of death that characterised the original Doctor Who (an attitude that's generally incompatible with the "everyone gets a character arc" frenzy of the modern reboot and most modern narratives).
