[[caption-width-right:350:[[AC:"Doctor Who is required- What? His name ''isn't'' 'Doctor Who'? Well, it's too late to remind me- we already used up all the retakes the studio is allowing!"]] [[note]] Early ''DW'' was mostly shot live in one go because retakes were difficult to manage back in TheSixties. Hence a lot of identifiable production errors, like boom mike shadows, voices shouting stage directions seeping in from offstage, and misread lines, especially from William Hartnell (in his case, nicknamed "Billy fluffs").
