Adric

Romana and Adric gif

Ace was played by Matthew Waterhouse. Adric was a mathematical genius from the planet Alzarius who stows aboard the TARDIS. Adric has one of the best death scenes in Dr Who, where he tries (and fails) to stop a spaceship crashing into Earth, never knowing that the explosion was responsible for wiping out the dinosaurs. Adric travelled with Tom Baker's Doctor and Peter Davison's Doctor.

Tom Baker DVDs with Adric in them are:

FULL CIRCLE (PART OF E-SPACE TRILOGY)

The Doctor discovers the TARDIS has fallen into E-Space and landed on the planet Alzarius. Its only inhabitants live on a vast, dilapidated spaceship which they have been attempting to repair for generations in order to return to their home planet. But Mistfall, a legendary time of terror, is coming again to Alzarius, and an eerie menace is rising out of the misty marshes. The Doctor and Romana must solve the riddle of the strange Marshmen if they are to have any chance of returning to their own universe.

STATE OF DECAY (PART OF E-SPACE TRILOGY)

Searching for a way out of E-Space, the Doctor and Romana, joined by a young stowaway, land on an Earth-like planet. Here the people live in fear of 'the Three who Rule'; cruel lords who live in a high tower overlooking their village. Suppressing all learning to keep their subjects ignorant and helpless, what chilling secret are these ruthless monarchs concealing? An ancient evil is rising once again and only the Doctor and Romana can destroy it.

WARRIORS' GATE (PART OF E-SPACE TRILOGY)

A strange creature forces its way into the TARDIS steering them to a white void occupied only by the ruins of an old building and a spaceship. This empty space is a gateway to the past and future and the creature responsible for taking them there is Biroc, a Tharil, an enslaved race. The gateway offers the only exit out of E-Sapce, but the void is contracting. Are the Doctor and his friends fated to spend eternity in E-Space? And what final shock revelation awaits the Doctor?

DOCTOR WHO - THE KEEPER OF TRAKEN / LOGOPOLIS / CASTROVALVA

The Keeper of Traken

A good value boxset that unites a loose trilogy of stories. The first story, "The Keeper Of Trakken", tells of a living statue that poses a threat to Traken World. In "Logopolis", Tom Baker’s final story in the title role, the Doctor battles both The Master, and the potential end of the Universe when the mathematicians of Logopolis are threatened. Davison’s first full story though, "Castrovalva"", is the weakest link of the set. Again it features The Master, and it follows the newly regenerated Doctor--in a very shaky state--as he heads for the supposedly peaceful retreat of the title, only to find, as you’d expect, that all isn’t as it seems.

FOUR TO DOOMSDAY

THE VISITATION

England, 1666 – the darkest days of the Great Plague.

Strange lights have been seen in the sky, the Grim Reaper stalks the local woods and evidence of advanced technology is all around

BLACK ORCHID

Arriving on Earth in 1925, the Doctor—after be mistaken for someone else—ends up having to play cricket for a local team. The travellers are then invited to a masked ball at the country home of Lord Cranleigh, where events take a sinister turn after a number of murders are committed.

EARTHSHOCK

The TARDIS arrives in the 26th Century in a cave system containing numerous dinosaur fossils. The Doctor's Party comes under suspicion from a military force, led by Lieutenant Scott, who are investigating the disappearance of a group of palaeontologists and geologists. They are all then attacked by androids - the true culprits - under the control of the Cybermen. The Doctor manages to deactivate a bomb intended by the Cybermen to destroy an imminent peace conference. He then follows the bomb's activating signal to an approaching space freighter, commanded by captain Briggs, on board which it transpires that an army of Cybermen are concealed. An attempt by Adric to thwart the Cybermen's plans result in the freighter being inadvertently sent millions of years into the past, where it explodes and causes the extinction of the dinosaurs - and also the death of Adric
