K and C’s favourite Hartnell era moments/Scenes
Ian is separated from Barbara.
In the Rescue, Ian and Barbara are separated by Koquillion when he causes the explosion that brings down the cave, blocking the entrance. After the Doctor helps Ian who is rather disorientated and nearly knocked out, Ian rushes to the entrance and is shocked that Barbara is not there. He heard her scream and it’s so sweet the way he begins clawing at the rubble, frantically trying to get to her, even though its pretty impossible.
The Doctor has to calm him down and snap him out of it. Ian is breathing like a madman and he’s stressed and keeps looking at the rubble, worried sick about Barbara. The Doctor uses humour to relax Ian slightly. He manages to get Ian to explain what has happened so far and Ian explains about Koquillion and the jeweled club. The Doctor pretty much forces Ian to get up and carry on.
DOCTOR: Now look here, what about Barbara, are you alright? Are you capable?
IAN: Yes I’m not too bad.
DOCTOR: Come along! Don’t just sit there my dear boy, stand up; stand up. Come along, that’s it, mind your head, it’s only dust,
DOCTOR: No bones broken? Eh?
IAN: Thank you Doctor, that’s the most thorough going medical I’ve ever had!
DOCTOR: Yes, it’s a pity I didn’t get that degree isn’t it?
Just a wonderful scene between the Doctor and Ian.
