An Unearthly Child - Pilot

Ian Chesterton and Barbara Wright, two teachers at Coal Hill School, compare their experiences with Susan Foreman, one of their students. They are both impressed by her and somewhat puzzled. She seems to know both more and less than they expect that a student her age would know.

Ian and Barbara offer her a ride home. She declines the offer. They know where she lives. Barbara has even been there but it is odd because it isn't a home but an old junk yard. Ian and Barbra return to the address where Susan is supposed to live. They watch her enter the yard. They follow her in but she has disappeared.

Ian and Barbara look around the junk yard. They find a police box. It seems out of place and there's a humming sound coming from it. They are thinking about leaving when an old man enters the yard. They confront him. They think they heard Susan's voice calling to him from inside the police box. They ask him to open it but he refuses.
