Underworld starring Tom Baker

The TARDIS arrives on a Minyan space craft, the R1C, commanded by a man named Jackson. Jackson and his crew are on a long quest to recover the Minyan race banks from a ship called the P7E which left their planet centuries ago. The Doctor helps to free the R1C after it becomes buried in a meteorite storm, but it then crashes into another newly-formed planet.

 

Special Features include:

• Commentary - with actors Tom Baker and Louise Jameson, co-writer Bob Baker.

• Into the Unknown – a look at the complex production of this story, with particular emphasis on the reasons for, and difficulties in achieving, the bluescreen virtual studio sets. With script editor Anthony Read, writers Bob Baker and Dave Martin, actors Jonathan Newth and Norman Tipton, designer Dick Coles and video effects designer AJ ‘Mitch’ Mitchell, with rare convention footage of producer Graham Williams.

• Underworld - In Studio – using time-coded Shibaden and U-matic video recordings, we are given a rare glimpse inside the studio during the recording of this story, much of which involved the use of bluescreen virtual studio techniques.

 

 

The Horns of Nimon starring Tom Baker 

The inhabitants of the planet Skonnos have been promised by an alien Nimon that he will restore their empire to greatness if they in return provide young sacrifices and radioactive Hymetusite crystals, both of which they are obtaining from the nearby planet Aneth. With the TARDIS immobilised for repairs, the Doctor and Romana encounter the Skonnan spaceship transporting the latest sacrificial consignment from Aneth.

 

Special Features include:

• Commentary - with actors Lalla Ward, Janet Ellis and Graham Crowden and writer Anthony Read.

• Who Peter – Partners in Time – since the birth of Doctor Who in the sixties, it has shared an almost symbiotic relationship with the long-running BBC children’s magazine show ‘Blue Peter’. In this special documentary, some of those involved look back over the history of that relationship.

• Read the Writer – Anthony Read, writer of ‘The Horns of Nimon’, looks back at the production of the story.

• Peter Howell Music Demos – in 1980, incoming producer John Nathan-Turner asked Radiophonic Workshop composers for demos of their music over the beginning of episode two of ‘The Horns of Nimon’. Only Peter Howell’s demo is known to exist and is presented here.
