|No. of episodes||26, 5 serials|
|Original channel||BBC One|
|Original release||30 December 1972– 23 June 1973|
The tenth season of British science fiction television series Doctor Who began on 30 December 1972 with the 10th anniversary special The Three Doctors, and ended with Katy Manning's final serial The Green Death.
At the conclusion of The Three Doctors, the Doctor is finally released from his sentence of exile by the Time Lords, enabling him to travel through time and space once again. This ends the cycle of mostly Earth-bound stories where the Doctor was stranded that began at the conclusion of The War Games in 1969.
The serials Frontier in Space and Planet of the Daleks both feature the Daleks and lead directly from the first into the second, forming a rough twelve-part epic.
