    SPOILER: 6 stories had been written for the 23rd season in 1986, but were abandoned, when the BBC announced that the series was to be taken off the air for 18 months due to the series for being too violet. The 6 stories that were written, but not got filmed is as follows: "The Nightmare Fair" which The Doctor and Peri fought The Celestial Toymaker in Blackpool. "The Ultimate Evil" which The Doctor and Peri learn that that an evil alien dwarf is using a deep space ray to turn the peace loving inhabitants of a holiday planet into raging killers. "Yellow Fever and How To Cure It" which The Doctor and Peri fought the Autons in Singapore. "Mission to Magnus" which The Doctor and Peri learn Sil is working for The Ice Warriors. "The Hollows of Time" which The Tractators returned and "The Children of January", which The Doctor and Peri encounter a race of runaway proto-humans. When the series returned in 1986, Season 26 became "The Trial of a Time Lord" which was a single story and saw The Doctor again stand trial by The Time Lords and recorded footage of events from The Doctor's past, present and future in the Matrix was used as evidence against him and the season ended with The Doctor discovering the court prosecutor The Valeyard is an evil future incarnation of himself and that the High Council used him to alter the evidence in the Matrix in order to cover up The Doctor's discoveries about the planet Ravalox. The season saw the dramatic departure of Nicola Bryant as Peri and the introduction of The Doctor's new companion Melanie Bush (Bonnie Langford) and it was also Colin Baker's final season as The Doctor.
