It had a surprisingly gruesome death in the final episode. I reviewed the telesnaps once on the BBC website, and was startled to find the death of the character taken over by the Great Intelligence was pretty nasty for 60s TV.
I've posted links to the relevant telesnaps on the BBC Doctor Who classic series site.

Maybe, but they don't use clips, they mostly seem to use doctored photos and screenshots. The William Hartnell one at the start is a colourised photo from The Web Planet. I know, because I saw the black and white original in one of my Doctor Who books.
To be honest, while it was impressive visually, I didn't actually like it. 'A tale of sound and fury...signifying nothing', as they say.
Actually, to tell the truth, I'm more interested in Big Finish's 50th anniversary special, The Light at the End. Twice the length, twice the (surviving) Doctors (though they're bringing in new actors for the first three, believe it or not!), and possibly twice as good.
And it's available in three different editions. Two guesses as to which one I'm getting...
BTW, if you're wondering who they're bringing in to replace the first three Doctors, one of them is none other than Frazer "Jamie McCrimmon" Hines, who has already portrayed the voice of the Second Doctor for various audio stories, and is pretty close to Patrick Troughton's voice. For proof, listen to this trailer for the Companion Chronicles story The Jigsaw War: not only does Hines play Jamie, but right at the end, at about 1:12, you hear his rendition of the Second Doctor...
Four minutes? That's ages! What if I get bored? I need a television, a couple of books. Anyone for chess? Bring me knitting.
