The Edge of Destruction Commentary CD

who_talk_edge_of_destruction.jpg ? In Stock £12.99

Category: Commentary CDs

Having survived adventures on prehistoric Earth and the future menace of the Daleks on Skaro, the Doctor’s next adventure was to be one of his most unusual and disturbing.

 

As a budget saving measure, a two part serial was commissioned set entirely inside the TARDIS. A creeping, shadowy, atmospheric piece was the result, featuring only series regulars.

 

For the first time ever, cast and crew gather to provide commentary tracks for these episodes.

 

Moderated by actors Toby Hadoke and Nicholas Pegg, this release features William Russell (Ian Chesterton), Carole Ann Ford (Susan Foreman), Brian Hodgson (Special Sound), Clive Doig (Vision Mixer), Richard Martin (Director), Robert Shearman (New Series Writer) and Jessica Carney (William Hartnell’s real granddaughter).

 

Additionally there is a bonus commentary for The Roof of the World, the first episode of Marco Polo.

 

These CDs can be enjoyed on their own or played in conjunction with the official BBC DVD release.

 

These commentaries contain no BBC copyrighted elements and do not feature audio from the episodes themselves.

Earthshock Commentary CD

who_talk_earthshock.jpg ? In Stock £12.99

Category: Commentary CDs

Few Doctor Who stories have had as great an impact as Earthshock did upon broadcast in 1982. The surprise return of the Cybermen was followed by the shocking death of companion Adric, in this very slick, glossy, and atmospheric action adventure.

 

On the 35th anniversary of its first broadcast, cast and crew from the serial reunite for these special new commentaries on all four episodes, including an alternative track for Part One.

 

Moderated by actor, comedian and cult television enthusiast Toby Hadoke, this release features Clare Clifford (Kyle), James Warwick (Scott), Alec Sabin (Ringway), Steve Morley (Walters), Joan Stribling (Make-Up) & Eric Saward (Writer).

 

These CDs can be enjoyed on their own or played in conjunction with the official BBC DVD release.

These commentaries contain no BBC copyrighted elements and do not feature audio from the episodes themselves.

Roger Delgado: I Am Usually Referred to as The Master

roger_delgado.jpg ? In Stock £19.99

Category: Autobiography

Roger Delgado is instantly recognisable as the Master in Doctor Who but his most famous role was also one of his last. He died aged only 55 but his career was long and productive including roles in much loved television programs such as The Saint, The Avengers, Quatermass II and films including the Hammer horrors. His brilliant versatility made him an indispensable character actor, who was able to switch accent and nationality.

 

This biography brings to light Delgado’s life from his childhood and early work in banking, his repertory theatre, early television, film roles, and finally his fame as the Doctor’s nemesis, when colleagues found a master criminal was played by the kindest man they had ever met. It also shows a private life more complex than previously thought.

 

The biography commemorates the centenary of Delgado’s birth in 1918 and looks beyond commonly told anecdotes to tell the story of Delgado’s life and career based on painstaking archival research. It features never before seen photographs from the collection of Roger’s widow Kismet Delgado and all new interviews with both some of Delgado’s most famous co-stars as well as with rarely-interviewed co-stars and directors.

Doctor Who Audio Annual

audio_annual.jpg ? In Stock £13.99

Category: BBC Radio Collection Classic Soundtracks

For two decades, from the mid-1960s to the mid-1980s, every fan of the Doctor hoped to find The Doctor Who Annual in their Christmas stocking. Larger than life and twice as colourful, the stories within were exuberant ― and often charmingly naive ― in their take on ‘the children’s own programme which adults adore’.

 

Here, for the first time on audio, Peter Purves (Steven), Anneke Wills (Polly), Geoffrey Beevers (the Master), Matthew Waterhouse (Adric) and Nicola Bryant (Peri) read a selection of these colourful and energetic tales.

 

In The Sons of Grekk, the First Doctor is held prisoner in a brutal, otherworldly society. The King of Golden Death finds that the Second Doctor, Polly and Ben have materialised inside an Ancient Egyptian pyramid. The Third Doctor, Jo and the Brigadier confront a familiar adversary in Dark Intruders, whilst in Conundrum the Fourth Doctor, Adric and K9 experience warped physics in the corridors of the TARDIS. FacingThe Penalty, a delirious Fifth Doctor finds old friends and adversaries ganging up on him, and the Sixth Doctor and Peri plunge into a dangerous period of British history in The Real Hereward.

 

Also included are two vintage essays on the character of our favourite Time Lord: Who is Doctor Who? from 1966 and The Phoenix in the TARDIS from 1968.

 

Take a nostalgic journey through time with these vintage Doctor Who tales.

The Black Archive 14: The Ultimate Foe

black_archive_ultimate_foe.jpg ? In Stock £6.99

Category: Black Archive, The

After almost 18 months off-air Doctor Who returned to television in September 1986 with the 14-episode The Trial of a Time Lord, an epic serial intended by its production team as a grand statement about both the programme and its lead character.

 

Its final two episodes, ‘The Ultimate Foe’, would prove to be the climax, if not the resolution, to the longest ever Doctor Who serial and to behind-the-scenes issues, both inside and outside the programme’s own production office, that had dogged the series for over a year.

 

Suffering from unprecedented scripting issues, including the death of its original writer and the withdrawal of his successor’s replacement script for the final episode after it had been issued to the cast and crew, this serial, while not intended as such, also came to serve as the finale for Colin Baker’s interpretation of the Doctor on television.

 

This Black Archive examines multiple drafts of both episodes’ scripts to look at creative conflicts behind the conclusion to this epic adventure, and the clash of intentions and interpretations that resulted in what was seen in the final transmitted programmes.
