bidding adieu cover.jpg ? In Stock £12.99

In January 1996 filming began on a new episode of Doctor Who, set in San Francisco but shot in Vancouver Canada.

Sylvester McCoy flew out to join the production team to re-create his role as the seventh Doctor and to hand over to Paul McGann. In this behind-the-scenes video diary Sylvester gives us a personal account of his final days as the famous Timelord.

Reminiscing about the ‘old days’ and drawing comparisons with the experience of working on this latest adventure, he talks to Paul McGann, Daphne Ashbrook (Dr Grace Holloway) from this new production and Anneke Wills (Polly) from the show’s past.

Paul McGann and Sylvester McCoy star as the Time Lord in this made-for-TV feature based on the long-running BBC sci-fi series. Whilst returning the Master (Eric Roberts)'s remains to their home planet of Gallifrey, the Doctor (McCoy) crash lands the TARDIS on Earth in San Francisco in the year 1999. Gunned down by a street gang, the Doctor is rushed to hospital, where exploratory surgery by Dr Grace Holloway (Daphne Ashbrook) triggers a regeneration into the Eighth Doctor (McGann). Meanwhile, the Master has taken over the body of a paramedic and infiltrated the TARDIS, which he plans to use in his latest scheme to take over the Doctor's new body and destroy the world.
